Hi

Check below link, hope it will help u to resolve ur isue,

http://docs.hp.com/en/diag/ems/dm_ql_adapter.htm

Please check the following:

1. Verify that the fiber optic cable is functional and securely attached to the Fibre Channel Mass Storage Adapter.
2. Verify that the device which is connected to the adapter port is functioning correctly.

Re: HP-UX FC-card issues

Hi,

Thanks for quick the reply,

I checked both as you mentioned.

1.Verify that the fiber optic cable is functional and securely attached to the Fibre Channel Mass Storage Adapter -->it is connected properly.
2.Verify that the device which is connected to the adapter port is functioning correctly. -->ioscan -fnC tape shows all the tape drives are claimed

Here we used virtual tape library.And the fc card shows -->online.

Re: HP-UX FC-card issues

As this is HP-UX11iv2 (11.23) you can convert FCIDs straight into HW paths to figure out what devices are failing to respond to scsi inquiries:

Just convert each 2 digits of the FCID into decimal to get the HW path, so:

sgcms027# dmesg | grep 0/4/1/0
0/4/1/0: Inquiry failed on FCP device with device id 0x130901
0/4/1/0: Inquiry failed on FCP device with device id 0x131102
0/4/1/0: Inquiry failed on FCP device with device id 0x131101

This relates to the devices at HW paths:
0/4/1/0.19.9.1
0/4/1/0.19.17.2
0/4/1/0.19.17.1

sgcms027# dmesg | grep 0/3/1/1
0/3/1/1: Inquiry failed on FCP device with device id 0x130702
0/3/1/1: Inquiry failed on FCP device with device id 0x130402
0/3/1/1: Inquiry failed on FCP device with device id 0x130702
0/3/1/1: Inquiry failed on FCP device with device id 0x130702
0/3/1/1: Inquiry failed on FCP device with device id 0x130402

This relates to the devices at HW paths:
0/3/1/1.19.7.2
0/3/1/1.19.4.2


So what does iosca show at those HW paths?
