Problem with brocade 6510 and emulex Lpe16002. Brocade switch doesn´t detect the hba?

[ Edited ]

We have connected a server with a hba Emulex   LPe16002         FV10.2.405.32             DV10.2.370.8

The brocade switch doesnt detect anything, the port shows as no_light.

We have reviewed the licenses and we have all ports licensed and we have reviewed the matrix compatibility and the hba is supported.

 

Somebody Knows what happen with this hba?

 

Thank you.

have you tried with another FC Cable ?

in rare case is the cable Plug TX and RX Inverted, dismount the Plug holder and try to invert TX with RX.

if the problem persist check the HBA SFP

Some operating systems need their device discovery to run in order to switch the HBA's lights on. For example if you put a new Emulex in a IBM system p (while running), you need to run cfgmgr. Otherwise the lights stay off.

We have reinstalled the OS, it is a new server and it was not ok, probably the first installation not finished ok.
After that, the hba Lpe16002 has started to go. The hba is ok and is detected by the Brocade switch.


Thank you very much.
