I have a Brocade 815 FC adapter in a HP DL 360 g5 server (actually it's a rebranded by HP adapter).
It's directly connected to a HP MSA2000 FC storage, and I'm trying to get it working under Solaris 11.0. No luck so far - the link is flapping. I've read about direct connection issues in this forum, so I tried to set the speed to 4Gb - it didn't help. I've also reflashed the bottcode/firmware to 3.2.1 - still flapping.
Here's what I see in dmesg when storage and the adapter has the mode set to point-to-point and the speed to 4G:
I've also tried to set the link mode and speed on the storage to loop/4G, after this I've got the link up, but on first try to get LUNs from the adapter I get this:
Jun 19 10:42:47 billing last message repeated 1 time
Jun 19 10:42:47 billing last message repeated 2 times
And then no remote ports or LUNs are showing.
Can someone point me to some useful direction ?
