Issue Mapping HBA's with 6500's and VNX5600

Hi All,

Hoping someone may be able to provide some guidance here. I am having trouble getting LUN’s mapped to select HBA’s on a couple ESXi 6.5 hosts, while other HBA’s on the same host are working properly. Storage is a VNX5600, switches are Brocade 6500’s, HBA’s are QLogic 2560’s, FW 8.05 and driver 2.1.57.0.

I have a cluster of 6 hosts, each with 2 x single port QLogic 2560’s in Poweredge R730’s. The trouble I am having is that I have 3 hosts where the HBA’s are not picking up storage and/or registering with the VNX5600 from within ESXi, and not registering themselves on the initiators page in the VNX. I have checked and double checked the zoning and it appears identical to the card that is working.  I have removed and recreated it using web tools.

The card that is not picking up the LUN’s does appear in the Name Server section of the switch, so I can only assume the switch is seeing it properly. However the cards do not always register the FDMI host name. The other odd bit is, if I change the zoning and rescan storage on the host so that it does its registration process, *sometimes* the HBA will register its WWN in the storage as UNKNOWN and only as a single path, not both paths. I have tried associating the UNKNOWN initiator with the correct host, assigning to a storage group, and using engineering mode to ensure all paths are registered.

I have also rebooted and powered cycled the effected hosts to ensure the HBA’s are registering. I am at a loss here as the environment is new to me. There are many (40+ hosts) that have the same setup (2 x single port QLogic 2560’s) and they are all working properly with paths from both HBA’s showing up. I do not understand what would be causing these inconsistencies.  I have gone as far as to mimic the working configurations in terms of using the same zone mappings to the front-end ports on both controllers.

I have swapped cables, transceivers, switch ports. None of which I suspect would be the problem otherwise the switch would not being the HBA.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

@121x

 

post the "nsshow" output

 

check with "nscamshow" command if any device is visible and post the output

Re: Issue Mapping HBA's with 6500's and VNX5600

[ Edited ]

I should add, *one* of the WWN in question is: 20:00:00:24:ff:09:26:05 and on Port 28, switch 14

What strikes me as odd as well is how none of the details on the card populate in the name server.

Re: Issue Mapping HBA's with 6500's and VNX5600

So the affected HBAs do not have that "FC4s: FCP" entry, right?

Correct. When viewing Name Server under Webtools, FC4 type is 'none' for this host.

 

That being said, for some of the other HBA's that are also having problems, the FC4 type *is* populated with FCP.

Hi All,

Really hoping someone can provide some next steps. Been struggling with these for the past few days but I am just not sure on next steps on how to address the problem.

Re: Issue Mapping HBA's with 6500's and VNX5600

@121x

 

I don't think the issue is related on switch side, but I can my be wrong.....

 

1) did you try to connect this HBA to another switch in the Fabric ?

 

sound stupid, but....,

 

2) did you try to remove the HBA from the Server and then reinsert ?

Re: Issue Mapping HBA's with 6500's and VNX5600

Hi Antonio,

Thank you for your continued support on this. I did try swapping cables, switches and swith ports. That said, I am in the process of reinstalling ESXi on this host just to start with a clean blank slate. Then I will remove the second card and work with trying to get just one going and try different pci slots if necessary.

Is it possible that the transcevier could be a problem? In other words it is enough to get the HBA to register the WWN on the switch, but not allowing the card to run the the flogi process and register the FC4 information? Does that sound at all reasonable?

 

Any additional information or thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

@121x

 

theoretically yes, a defective SFP can caused such a problem.

 

if you say, you tried already to move / assign the HBA into different switch port and another switch, the issue is for sure not related on switch side.
