Direct connectivity issue with Brocade 825 and VNX 5100

  • 1.  Direct connectivity issue with Brocade 825 and VNX 5100

    Posted 03-19-2013 03:00 PM

    Hi all,

                 I have a VNX 5100 directly connected to windows 2008 server using Brocade 825 HBA. The HBA is not logged into VNX. I have manualy registered them in VNX, and presnt LUN's to server. But the LUNs are not visible from the server.

    HBA Firmware version -- 3.2.0.0

    HBA Driver Version -- 3.2.0.0

    HBA BIOS vrsion -- 3.0.1.0

    What should I do to bring up the connectivity.

    Rgds,

    Sreekanth.

    Problem resolved now..

    > Installed HCM software

    > Logged in as administrator/password

    > Discovered HBAs

    > Select HBA > right click > Basic port configuration

    > Change topology... from p2p >> Loop (Direct connectivity use FCAL)

    > Apply.., disable and enable port.

    Done!!!..

    I red somewhere, setting speed to 4Gb resolves the issue.
