HBA Reaplacement - Same device files

Hi All,

We are replacing the existing 2 Gbps HBA's with new 4 Gbps cards. We are using the same PCI slots. Once the server is up, the new wwn number need to be configured in SAN.

Is there a way to get the same device files after repalcing and zoning?

Thank you
Ravi

Re: HBA Reaplacement - Same device files

Hi All,

Thank you for all the posts.

We have replaced the FC cards, at same PCI Slot, Switch ports and zoning.


Device files remained same after the HBA repalcement and after configuring the zoning on new wwn numbers.

Cheers,

Ravi.
