DL385 G5 withqla2460 HBA's only see's disk down 1 path

Hello,
I have a DL385 G5 running RHEL 5.3 with PowerPath v5.1 installed and qla2460 4GB HBA's. Both hba's show connected to the EMC Clariion device but PowerPath only shows 1 path connected. Also, checked /proc/scsi/qla2xxx and see devices down one hba but not the other. The hba driver information is:

QLogic PCI to Fibre Channel Host Adapter for HPAE311A:
Firmware version 4.00.90 [IP] , Driver version 8.01.07.25.02-fo
BIOS version 1.26

I would like to be able too see the devices down both paths, any assistance would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Tom.

Check the sanswitch port status to identify if it's online. Check the sanswitch zoning. Ensure that you have mapped/presented the LUN to boths HBA's of the host.

looks like your using the QLogic failover driver. If it's set in failover mode you may only see one path. Try using the RH inbox QLogic driver or change the failover mode

Do you have the PP license? Post with "powermt display dev=all" for couple of devices
