Hi,

it looks like the 8-port switch is a Qlogic switch (2/8q). The others are probably Brocade. I don't think the 2/8q was ever sold separately by HP. It came with the MSA1000 for Small Business SAN kit.
http://h18000.www1.hp.com/products/quickspecs/Division_10-2005/12095_div.PDF

As fas as I can remember, these switches did not have E-Port capability, so it could not be interconnected with another SAN switch. Looking at your error messages seems to confirm this (Eport Restricted).

I think you will need to replace this 2/8q switch with a Brocade switch that is fabric-capable.

Regards,
Stephen

Thans Stephen.
You are right, cu's swith is Qlogic Switch from MSA1000.
So the root cause is you have said, it's not support connect with other's san switch.

Thanks a lot:)
