HPAJ764A -> QLE2562 Problems.

  • 1.  HPAJ764A -> QLE2562 Problems.

    Posted 07-03-2013 01:32 AM

    Hi, I have a HPAJ764A -> QLE2562 card on a Linux RH5 and it only logs in the fabric (brocade 4100) if we force the speed to 2GB and it only work for few minutes and then it goes In_Sync again, can anyone help me? I think it is a driver related issue but dont know how to fix.

    On the one hand, a good option would be to upgrade the HBA driver (what's the version?).

    On the other, please, try the following and post the result:

    - once you get the port to be ONLINE, clear the stats (portstatsclear

    - can you paste the output of sfpshow

    - what error do you get when setting the speed at auto or 4G?

    pserra, I noticed you are running the 8.03.x firmware by Q.  Their current driver set is 8.05.x.  Just FYI.

    But beyond that, I would suggest speaking to Qlogic regarding their FC adapters.

    it is scary the number of existing bugs in 8.04 and previous driver releases:

    I'd recommend you to upgrade the drivers and then see if problems persist.
