Proliant DL385 not seeing FC P2000

Hi,

 

OS: RedHat 6.3

 

I just installed our new DL385 G8. I installed a HP Qlogic FC card. Made the fibre connections between the server and the SAN switch but I cannot get the HP Array configuration Utility to see the P2000. I have updated all the firmware I can find. The kernel loads the FC drivers and sees the device, see output from dmesg below.

 

udev: starting version 147
power_meter ACPI000D:00: Found ACPI power meter.
scsi 4:0:0:0: RAID              COMPAQ   MSA1000          5.20 PQ: 0 ANSI: 4
scsi 4:0:1:0: RAID              COMPAQ   MSA1000          5.20 PQ: 0 ANSI: 4
scsi 4:0:2:0: Enclosure         HP       P2000 G3 FC      T230 PQ: 0 ANSI: 5

 I also have an MSA 1500 on the SAN switch but the DL385 is not seeing that controller either. However the existing HP DL servers I have can see the new PC adapter when I run the HP ACU command line utility.

 

Below is a list of packages I have installed so far

 

hpsmh-7.1.1-1.x86_64
hp-snmp-agents-9.0.0.48-49.rhel6.x86_64
hponcfg-4.0.0-0.noarch
hpacucli-9.0-24.0.i386
hp-smh-templates-9.0.0.36-35.all.noarch
hplip-common-3.10.9-3.el6.x86_64
hplip-libs-3.10.9-3.el6.x86_64
hp-ams-1.0.0-570.rhel6.x86_64
hp-health-9.0.0.48-44.rhel6.x86_64

 I must be missing something. Does anyone have any ideas?

Thanks,

Dermot

Re: Proliant DL385 not seeing FC P2000

ok. Looks like I should have done some more reading before I jumped in. P2000 are configured via HTTP. I have assumed the hpacucli was used. So you need to connect to them initially using the MSA discovery tool, configure the interface and then point your browser at it.

Hello, exacatly as mentioned above, FC array is managed completely different than local storage. And - if you use SAN switches you nedd to create SAN zones between server and storage (not nedded when connected directly)
