Re: command for HBA

Hi Daniel,

If you want to reset the card you should use:
fcmsutil /dev/CARD reset

where CARD is your fibre channel card.

It can be found with the following command:
ioscan -fnkCfc

Just make sure that your port at the switch is enabled and I also kindly advice you to set explicitly the port speed (2/4/8Gbps) at the side of the switch!


Regards,
Sve

Re: command for HBA

yes, the physical connection is OK HBA.

I need to restart the HBA card to verify whether active or not.

Re: command for HBA

On the server side, the HBA is ready to be used, ask the SAN storage team to turn link on.

Shalom,

If lights are lit and fcmsutil is still in the state listed above:

1) Possible problem on the fiber network
2) Fiber switch may need to be configured to an online status.

The HP-UX serve should pick up this status instantly without need to reboot.

Re: command for HBA

Re: command for HBA

Shalom,

No, to reset the HBA card when it is not ONLINE does not require a down system.

I would not reset the HBA card while ONLINE and having file systems mounted on disks it provides.

In the current situation, no downtime appears to be required.

Re: command for HBA

Do an ioscan -fnC fc and get device file for that particular card.

then do a fcmsutil command to reset the HBA

/opt/fcms/bin/fcmsutil -f reset
