4gb Fiber Cards on 11.11

So I have a new system which came with 11.23 and 4gb PCI-X fiber cards. We Ignited with an 11.11 image so it would match other servers. Now my 4gb cards are Unclaimed.

Per http://docs.hp.com/en/J6374-90072/ar01s06.html, I installed:

PHKL_34161
PHKL_36806 (supersedes required 28569)
PHKL_36133 (supersedes required 28695)
PHKL_34930 (supersedes required 30067)

PHSS_34835 (supersedes required 33918) wouldn't install because it only updates stm v 11.11.16, and I have stm v 11.11.20 installed.

What I can't seem to find is:
Driver FibrChanl-00 (td) version B.11.11.16 or later for HP-UX 11i v1 (needed for SNIA-API)

I found FibrChanl-01, but not 00.

Any suggestions?

Re: 4gb Fiber Cards on 11.11

Right, I have this one already, but the manual says 01 won't work without 00 first being installed. I installed this anyway and sure enough, my cards are still unclaimed.

Re: 4gb Fiber Cards on 11.11

Thanks for the links! Ok, I installed the most recent 00, then went back and reinstalled the 01 component. After rebooting, I perform an ioscan -f and insf -e, and still, the cards are Unclaimed.

The swagent log says that the fiber card driver is complaining about 28569 and 23626 not being installed, though I did install the patches which suspersede those two. Why does it not recognize them?

Re: 4gb Fiber Cards on 11.11

Part number AB379-60101 4gb Dual Port PCI/PCI-X Fibre Channel Adapter

Verification succeeded on both 00 and 01.

Maybe the 00 driver link above does not support this card.

Re: 4gb Fiber Cards on 11.11

hi,

now we know the part number of the card it might help abit more.

the latestd river listed for your card on the bus support site is B.11.11.13 for that card for 11.11.

http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareDescription.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodTypeId=329290&prodSeriesId=432322&swItem=ux-28277-6&prodNameId=1824064&swEnvOID=7&swLang=8&taskId=135&mode=3

what was the version of the 01 driver you installed? maybe this wasnt new enough.

Also is the system not fully patched upto date?

you would probably be better off installing the latest quarterly patch bundle set first and try and bring the system upto date if possible

Re: 4gb Fiber Cards on 11.11

OK, I decided to start over. I removed all the patches and drivers, and the cards have been removed. I then installed all the patches the docs say I need. Now, I go to install the driver, and it says that I need the prerequisite FCMassStorage-FCMS.KRN and .RUN, but when I search for this at the HP site, it directs me to the Fibr-Chanl-01 driver. When I drill down into the Fibr-Chanl-01 driver, the underlying product is FC-FCD-KRN/RUN, not FCMassStorage. So where do I get FCMassStorage? Thanks for your help.

Re: 4gb Fiber Cards on 11.11

This may not be in the thread, but I am running 11.11, and I don't have any fiber related dvd's. This server was built with an Ignite of a server that did not have these fiber cards.

Also, the driver I was installing, which had a prerequisite of FCMassStorage, was the FibrChanl-00. Forgot to note that before. The FibrChanl-01 driver says I must have FibrChanl-00 installed first. FibrChanl-00 says that I must first install FCMassStorage, which is what I am trying to find. Thanks.

This is available in

You need to find the product in the Application DVD.

Let me check if this is available in the latest DVD

Re: 4gb Fiber Cards on 11.11

Sorry.. FibrChanl-02 is only for 11.23/31.

May be some other will answer you query for 11.11

Re: 4gb Fiber Cards on 11.11

OK, I found FCMassStorage inside patch 34161 which had already been installed. Installed FibrChanl-00, and now installing FibrChanl-01. Once up, I will shut it down and install the fiber cards.

Re: 4gb Fiber Cards on 11.11

Alright, after installing all patches and drivers while the cards were out, I reinstalled the cards, rebooted, ran ioscan and insf -e, and the cards are still Unclaimed/Unknown.

If the correct driver is installed and the adapter is not listed in the ioscan output, contact HP for
assistance.

This 11.11, so I don't have kcmodule. I do have kmadmin, though.
