Hi Paul,

I don't recall the switch or adapter LEDs, but why don't you ask the switch what it can see ?

The output of "switchShow" will help greatly...

Cheers,

Re: what's normal switch led and adapter led when Alpha in console?

the state of the FC/switch ports should be independant of the OS-status (online-offline as you call it).
when powered and initialized the FC-HBA has to do a "logon" on the switchport.
at this time all disks presented to this host should be visible to wwidmgr.
I expect all the LED's to show constat green, but that can depend on the model switch.
the command from Rob should show all host-ports logged in (F-port).

Re: what's normal switch led and adapter led when Alpha in console?

switchshow show that

1) when Alpha in normal console mode,

the port connecting with KGPSA-CA is offline;

2) when Alpha in diag mode and after wwidmgr -show ada,

the port connecting with KGPSA-CA becomes online, and shows the HBA's WWID.

Is the switch normal or broken?

Hi,

I think this depends on what AlphaServer you're using...

Newer hardware normally brings up the link as soon as you get to the SRM >>> prompt.

However you mentioned diag mode to get into wwidmgr which suggests something you might have an older machine.

I know on an old GS60 which I used to manage, I got the same behaviour that you're seeing.

Cheers,

Rob
