Direct connectivity issue with Brocade 825 and VNX 5100

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.
