I have a McData Sphereon ES-4700 and some QLogic QLA/QLE-2460 4gb HBA's that came with the lab space I just inherited.
I have no documentation or notes or anything the gear.
I am currently running QLA/QLE-2360 2gb HBA's with an EMC DS-16B fabric switch.
While re-racking the servers and tape libraries, I decided to intall the 2460's but connected everything up to the EMC DS-16B.
Everything worked fine - QLogic's SANSurfer saw everything as did BackupExec.
I swapped in the ES-4700, it powered up okay, i see green lights on all the connected fiber ports, but i see nothing in SanSurfer.
I can log into the RS-232 console using "password" for the C> prompt, "level-2" for the SSP> prompt and "neergmc" or "redips" for (P) SSP> prompt.
I set the IP address for my network and tried to access it via telnet and http.
The default credentials of "Administrator" and "password" were rejected in both.
The main thing i want is to be able to reset the password so i can get in either by HTTP or Telnet.
I could care less about zoning or any other deep fiber switch fabric configuration.
I scoured this forum for every thread that might be helpful (because I know someone will say - "i had that problem, this thread was the answer") but while it worked for them, i'm still stuck.
I tried (from post "McData 4700 No Telnet or Web")
(P) SSP> cli
(P) SSP> ews
(P) SSP> cli st 1
(P) SSP> ews st 1
saw that _cli_enabled is "yes" and _ews_enabled is "yes"
(P) SSP> ews cnfg 2
got the mssages
"EWS _clean_up called"
"The Embedded Web Server has been reset."
"The Command Line Interface has been reset."
did not change the password
Holding the IML button for more than 3 seconds, but less than 10
Holding the IML button for more than 10 seconds
I tried (from post "McData 4700 and pcp nvreset")
(P) SSP> pcp swoff
(P) SSP> pcp nvreset
(P) SSP> pcp swon
but got "PCP Custom Commands are already registered" message.
I tried this, from IBM's support forum (Password reset on a 2026-432 Fiber Switch)
(P) SSP> pcpswoff
(P) SSP> pcpnvreset
(P) SSP> pcpswon
Same commands from above without spaces.
That did the trick, I can now get into switch, and everything in the switch GUI looks good so far.
I currently have two servers, one tape library and one tape drive plugged in.
Looking at the GUI of the switch, I see the corresponding connection/link lights
In the Port List, I see 4 ports (0, 2, 4, 6) as Unblocked, Online and FPort.
However, in QLogic's SANSurfer, I no longer see any of the devices connected to the HBA.
Is there something up with the port configuration on the switch or the QLogic card?
I pretty much kick everything back to default (HBA's, switch) when i install this stuff.
What am i missing? Why does SANSurfer see everything when connected to the EMC DS-16B, but not the Sphereon ES-4700?
Any help is appreciated.
Thanks in advance
PS. The firmware version is 08.00.0045, build 45.
I have looked high and low for a more recent EOS firmware download and have found nothing.
Anyone out there have a copy of EOS firmware that more recent?
