Unable to access previously accessed device at nport ID 0x180400.

Hi all,

I swapped a new tape changer device with an old one (connecting to the same SAN switch port as the previous one. Zoning has been correctly re-done via port WWN)

On the host end, when I run ioscan -nf ; insf -e , I am not able to detect the new HW.

Instead the syslog gives me this error:
Jan 22 09:06:27 ferrisfx vmunix: 0/0/10/0/0: 'World-wide name' (unique identifier) for device at nport ID 0x180400 has
Jan 22 09:06:27 ferrisfx vmunix: changed. If the device has been replaced intentionally, please use the
Jan 22 09:06:27 ferrisfx vmunix: fcmsutil(1M) command's replace_dsk option to allow the new device to be used.

Jan 22 09:06:27 ferrisfx vmunix: returned by nport ID 0x180400. FLOGI/PLOGI Fail Code = 0x6.
Jan 22 09:06:27 ferrisfx vmunix:
Jan 22 09:06:27 ferrisfx vmunix: 0/0/10/0/0: Unable to access previously accessed device at nport ID 0x180400.



What does that mean?
regards,
Mak

Re: Unable to access previously accessed device at nport ID 0x180400.

This message is already telling you what you need to do - use fcmsutil with replace_dsk!

# ioscan -fnCfc

to get the controller device

# fcmsutil /dev/fcd_ replce_dsk 0x180400
(or maybe /dev/td_ )

# ioscan -fn

and you will see the "CAIMED" status again.

... **or** reboot the server ...


Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.
