ioscan -funC fc shows nothing, but i see the fc card

I got involved in hosts that have been previously managed. I did an "ioscan -funC fc" and it did not return anything. The host is an rp3440. Is there a fiber card that is not of type fc?

Re: ioscan -funC fc shows nothing, but i see the fc card

Hi!!

# ioscan -funC fc

should give you an output something like this:

Class I H/W Path Driver S/W State H/W Type Description
===================================================================
fc 0 0/0/10/1/0 td CLAIMED INTERFACE HP Tachyon XL2 Fibre Chan
nel Mass Storage Adapter
/dev/td0
fc 1 1/0/8/1/0 td CLAIMED INTERFACE HP Tachyon XL2 Fibre Chan
nel Mass Storage Adapter
/dev/td1

If not, then you do not have a fiber card installed.

The way I see it anyway...

Re: ioscan -funC fc shows nothing, but i see the fc card

Oh...I read it again. How do you 'see' the fc card? If you can physically eyeball it, it should have a part # stamped on it. Could you please post that?

And, can you post the output of # ioscan -fn

That gives everything but the kitchen sink.

Hi,

>>>Is there a fiber card that is not of type fc? <<<

I don't think so.

If you have doubt still, check everything with

#ioscan -fn |more
Best wishes,

Hi again,

forgot to add...

>>>ioscan -funC fc shows nothing, but i see the fc card <<<<

The card which you seen, is it working? It might not have been installed(driver may not be installed) or failed one.
Best wishes,

Ganesh.

Re: ioscan -funC fc shows nothing, but i see the fc card

on the physical card i see "PCI-X Single Port 1000 Base-SX Adapter. That's the one with the FC cable on it.

the ioscan -fnk shows:

lan 2 0/3/1/0 iether CLAIMED INTERFACE HP AD332-60001 PCI/PCI-X 1000Base-SX Adapter

lan 1 0/4/1/0 iether CLAIMED INTERFACE HP AD332-60001 PCI/PCI-X 1000Base-SX Adapter

That's Gigabit network card.

>>That's the one with the FC cable on it.

I seriously doubt that. There should be nothing more than a Cat-5e or Cat-6 network cable plugged in.

Re: ioscan -funC fc shows nothing, but i see the fc card

that's what what on the machine now. it has the orange fc cable on it and the port thtat it has is an FC port. The the description I wrote earlier, is stamped on the metal piece of the card.

Here's the full ioscan -fnk. Let me know if something stands out as a device that would be used as an FC card. Thanks.

Re: ioscan -funC fc shows nothing, but i see the fc card

The AD332 is a Gigabit NETWORK card that uses a FIBRE cable to attach to the switch.

This is **NOT** a Fibre Channel card that you would use to access a SAN.

Re: ioscan -funC fc shows nothing, but i see the fc card

Hi,

I also go with Patrick. It is a lan card which uses fibre connection to connect to the switch. Look at the ioscan output and see the class field(the first field) and the driver field(fourth field)

>>>
lan 2 0/3/1/0 iether CLAIMED INTERFACE HP AD332-60001 PCI/PCI-X 1000Base-SX Adapter

lan 1 0/4/1/0 iether CLAIMED INTERFACE HP AD332-60001 PCI/PCI-X 1000Base-SX Adapter
>>>

Since class of these devices is lan, it should not list in #ioscan -fnC fc. but it should be listed in #ioscan -fnC lan

fc class devices will have the driver of "td"

Hope this clarify your doubts..
Best wishes,

Ganesh.

Re: ioscan -funC fc shows nothing, but i see the fc card

And the key in the card description itself is:

"1000Base-SX".

A 'Base-SX' card uses fibre connections.

A 'Base-T' card uses regular LAN cable (Cat 5/5e/6) connections.

I was slightly confused in my first response. Sorry about that!

A lan card which uses fibre connection. Thanks for clarifying.
