Qlogic HBA question

Hi gurus,

What is the utility we can use to set HBA parameters? The server is ql380, hba is QLA2432 card.

TIA

Normally, the command is set_parm.

Thank for you quick response.

I could not find any file /etc/hp_qlaXXX.conf, and set_parm. The SANsurfer is installed, however I dare not to configure HBA's because all luns are in prod service.

Re: Qlogic HBA question

It is part of the HP-branded device driver package.

Re: Qlogic HBA question


I guess the driver was loaded during HBA installation, it sounded like plug and play, and we configured the device-mapper-multipath, it works.

# lsmod |grep -i qla
qla2300 127425 0
qla2400 201025 0
qla2322 137537 0
qla2xxx 183201 15 qla2300,qla2400,qla2322
scsi_transport_fc 11841 1 qla2xxx
scsi_mod 141457 5 sg,qla2xxx,scsi_transport_fc,cciss,sd_mod

Do I need to download HP driver to install? Thanks.

Re: Qlogic HBA question

It sounds like you have the QLogic version installed. SANsurfer includes a program called scli to set parameters in the HBA.

Thanks.

I can see the HBA info by using adapter_info. However, scli can not retrive the HBA infomation correctly.

SANsurfer FC HBA CLI

v1.7.0 Build 13

HBA Port Settings Menu

HBA Model :
1: Port 1: WWPN: 00-00-02-00-03-00-00-00 Loop down
2: Port 2: WWPN: 00-00-02-00-03-00-00-00 Loop down
3: Return to Previous Menu

Is there anything I missed? Thank you for your help.
