Port status is "no Light"

Hi all,

I am trying to connect one HBA through Fibre on my brocade silkworm 200E switch. i plugged connector at both ends (swtich port and HBA) but the port on switch status is "No Light". just wondering anyone have any idea why its doing this ? do i need to enable some features on the swtich side or server side? any help appreciated.

Do you see light on the hba on the server side? If so, it's possible that the fiber is flipped. If not, you need to configure the hba on the server.

Is the HBA set to point to point or arbitrated loop?
