3par 8450 problem about persistent port fail_over

Hi Everyone.

I have a 3PAR 8450 connected to host(OS:SUSE 12SP3,HBA: QLE 2692 FW:v8.03.04&Driver:v9.00.00.00-k,Switch:Brocade 6510)

As the following, primary port 1:0:2 corresponds to partner persistent port 0:0:2.

 

N:S:P Mode State   ----Node_WWN----  -Port_WWN/HW_Addr- Type Protocol Label Partner FailoverState

0:0:1 target ready 2FF70002AC019EE7 20010002AC019EE7   host FC       -    1:0:1  none

0:0:2 target ready 2FF70002AC019EE7 20020002AC019EE7   free FC       -   1:0:2  none

At this moment we can see 8 wwns of the host via cli showhost,

Id Name   Persona       -WWN/iSCSI_Name- Port

45 xxx     xxx          21000024FF7E9D2B 0:0:2

                         21000024FF7E9D2A 0:0:2

                         21000024FF7E9D2B 1:0:2

                         21000024FF7E9D2A 1:0:2

                        21000024FF2F4293 1:0:1

                         21000024FF28EA84 1:0:1

                         21000024FF28EA85 0:0:1

                         21000024FF2F4292 0:0:1

 

I plug out the optical fiber of port 1:0:2, then 1:0:2 fail_over to 0:0:2.

After a while I replug in the optical fiber,then 1:0:2 fail_back.

But I check the wwns via cli showhost, the 2 wwns of port 1:0:2 were missing.

Id Name   Persona       -WWN/iSCSI_Name- Port

45 xxx     xxx          21000024FF7E9D2B 0:0:2

                           21000024FF7E9D2A 0:0:2

                            21000024FF2F4293 1:0:1

                            21000024FF28EA84 1:0:1

                         21000024FF28EA85 0:0:1

                         21000024FF2F4292 0:0:1

 

I also checked the link, All connections are normal.

Does anyone know what is the root cause of the problem?Is there any known issues about persistent port fail_over?

And what can I do to solve this problem?

Thank you very much for any help!

Re: 3par 8450 problem about persistent port fail_over

Not showing up as partners is the problem. What do the following commands show:

showportdev fcswitch 0:0:2
showportdev fcswitch 1:0:2
