Replacing QLOGIC FC card

Hi,

 

I have a DL380 G4 with two QLOGIC FC cards for connectivity to a StorageWorks 2/8q Fiber Channel Switch, for accessing the MSA 1000 Datastore.

 

The problem is that one of the QLOGIC FC card of Proliant server is faulty.

 

I've just bought one to replace, and phisically has been replaced.

 

But don't know how to do this new QLOGIC adapter being recognised by the StorageWorks 2/8q and the MSA1000.

 

When I open HP Array Configuration Utility, I still see the old QLOGIC card.

 

Thanks

Re: Replacing QLOGIC FC card

If the Fc switch is configured for WWN zoning, you need to adjust it.

 

But first go into the ACU and check the SSP (selective storage presentation).

 

Is the new adapter listed there? Assign the approriate LUNs to this adapter.


Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Re: Replacing QLOGIC FC card

Hi,

 

The problem is that I don't see the new adaptet in SSP.

 

I've just pluged the network cable for one of the FC switches  to try to log on, but don't have the IP for managing.

 

Just I'm trying to get the information, but the previous Administrator didn't use to have documentation about.

 

Any ideas how to get it?

 

Thanks,

Re: Replacing QLOGIC FC card

Re: Replacing QLOGIC FC card

Try "zoneshow" via telnet.

 

Or go into zoneadmin:

Re: Replacing QLOGIC FC card

Try to find a manual that meets your OS version:

http://h20565.www2.hp.com/portal/site/hpsc/template.PAGE/public/psi/manualsResults/?sp4ts.oid=315122&spf_p.tpst=psiContentResults&spf_p.prp_psiContentResults=wsrp-navigationalState%3Daction%253Dmanualslist%257Cviewall%253Dtrue%257Clang%253Den&javax.portlet.begCacheTok=com.vignette.cachetoken&javax.portlet.endCacheTok=com.vignette.cachetoken

 

 

 

I assumed the switch is a brocade, but I think it is a qlogic.

 

Try

 

zone list

zoneset list

zoning active

zoning list


Hope this helps!

Re: Replacing QLOGIC FC card

Hi,

 

Now appears and had authorized to access the LUN.

 

I've already installed HP DSM Manager, as well as MPIO (is a Windows 2k8R2).

 

After rebooting, the LUN unit is detected as a new unit, with no assigned letter, and empty.

 

This unit had data, and assigned unit.

 

What is the issue?

 

How could I recover the unit as available with the data?

 

Should I removed HP DSM and MPIO?

 

This is now quite problematic.

 

Thanks

Re: Replacing QLOGIC FC card

Do I have to have into account anything else when replacing the FC card?

 

I still see the old FC card on ACU, but don't see it in FC switch; seems strange.

 

Thanks
