Re: cluster

Is this an existing configuration that failed?
or is this a new setup?

- first check if link is up on the fiber adapter(s)
- check on the switch that the port is "logged-in" (F-port)

when new setup
- you may need to set the pga0_mode to fabric?
- configure zoning on the switch so the host can connect to the controller
- configure volumes on the MSA to "present" them to the third host.
- use "WWIDMGR" to attach a device-id (dga0) to the wwid.

when existing setup check above configs.

Re: cluster

Hi there
The fiber ports (like ethernet ports) have a LED wich normally lights green when the port has a normal connection.
Check if the port of the non-functioning host and the connected switchport are different from the systems that function OK.

The switch has a serial console port, that you can access using a pc/laptop with a serial port and using a terminal emulator like PUTTY or HyperTerm.

Alternatively, if the switch is connected to the networky and an ip-adress is cnfigured, you may login using telnet or using the web-interface of the switch.
