EMX GBIC IN PAUSED STATUS

We have the latest software and hardware revisions. ES45 Cluster running Tru64 5.1Bpk4
Firmware revision: 6.9-2 PALcode: UNIX version 1.92-33
The following emx gbic card is a emx2 at pci1 slot 2 FCA-2354 : Driver Rev 2.14 : F/W Rev 3.81A4(1.01A0)

# hwmgr -show fibre

83: emx4 up point-to-point attached scsi6 FCA-2384

We have this card directly connected to a Spectra Logic tape library. Whenever we go through the switch the connection seems fine and when we go directly to the jukebox the card goes into the paused status.

What can be done to bring the emx2 card back from the paused status.
What we want to accomplish is to be able to see that card attached to a library and use it as a backup device.

TIA,

David

Re: EMX GBIC IN PAUSED STATUS

I'm pretty sure that direct point-to-point links on that card in an Alpha aren't supported. The only two topology options offered in the Alpha console 'wwidmgr' utility are 'fabric' and 'loop'. You'll have to use ports on your switches to accomplish this.
