Ignite recovery not seeing devices attached to fclp drivers on rx3600,

My Ignite server is running 7.3.148 and when I try to install its core 11.31 onto a rx3600 server its does not see devices attached to its HBA's. The HBA's are HP AD355-60001 4Gb PCIe 2-port Fibre Channel Adapters with FibrChanl-02 (fclp) drivers. Does this version of Ignite support the fclp drivers? If not, what is the minium version that does?

Shalom,

I don't think its really an Ignite issue.

If the system imaged had the hardware, then the system created will have supporting drivers and see the devices as well.

More likely this is a WWN, World Wide Name issue.

The system you imaged has HBA's with unique WWN. The disk is presented to systems on the basis if WWN.

So you take a system, image it and lay that down on another system, it won't be able to see the new disk storage until the storage itself is configured with and presented to the HBA with a correct WWN.
