Supported Configurations Supported Configurations Operation of multiple switches in a fabric topology is subject to the following topology limits. Consider the impact of these limits when planning the fabric. HP StorageWorks SAN Note: For more information about planning the fabric, refer to High Availability Planning Guide Fabric Elements –...
Cable Requirements Cable Requirements Note: Please note that optical cables for the Edge Switch 2/24 and Edge Switch 2/32 must be ordered separately. For cables measuring up to 500 meters (1 Gbps) or 300 meters (2 Gbps), use multi-mode Fibre Channel cables. For longer cables, use single-mode Fibre Channel cables.
Important Information Important Information This section describes important information related to the Edge Switch 2/24 and Edge Switch 2/32. HAFM and Firmware Version Compatibility Table 1 lists the minimum version of HAFM that can run with the various versions of firmware for the directors and edge switches. Table 1: HAFM and Firmware Compatibility Firmware Version HAFM Version (Minimum)
Important Information To execute a CTP switchover, perform the following steps: 1. From Product Manager Hardware view, verify that an amber LED indicator does not display for either CTP card. 2. Right-click on a CTP card and choose Switchover from the menu. Note: The switch or director will lose its Ethernet connection for a short period during the switchover process.
Important Information Note: The Director 2/140 and Edge Switch 2/24 cannot be downgraded below version 04.01.00. Downgrading directly to a version prior to 02.00.00 from version 04.YY.ZZ is not allowed. To downgrade to a version before 02.00.00, you must first downgrade to version 02.YY.ZZ.
Important Information Hard Zoning Hard Zoning is a security enhancement in firmware version 05.01.00-24 that prevents ports from accessing devices outside their zones. Hard Zoning is enabled by default when using firmware version 05.01.00-24 or greater and cannot be disabled. All HP-approved host bus adapters (HBAs) limit access to devices within their zones, so you will not see a change in fabric behavior unless you are using nonstandard HBAs.
Important Information Command Line Interface (CLI) Changes CLI has been enhanced to provide the following benefits: Access to symbolic name information in the name server database. Counter Threshold Alerts (CTA)—Used to configure limits and alerts for any of the supported port statistics fields. You can configure alerts for individual ports, groups of ports, or various port types, based on user-specified counter value exceeded over a specified time duration.
Important Information Table 2: Zoning Parameters Supported Limits Zoning Parameter Maximum Value Number of end ports 1024 Unique zone members 1024 Members per zone 1024 Zones 1024 Number of zone sets Maximum devices supported 1024 Note: The supported number of zones is based on a zone name with a maximum of 32 characters.
Known Issues Known Issues This section describes the known issues related to the Edge Switch 2/24 and Edge Switch 2/32. Embedded Web Server access to modify zones is limited to first 255 zones If you have an active zone set of greater than 255 zones, you will not be able to access the zones past the 255th zone using the Embedded Web Server (EWS).
Known Issues Certain Unauthorized Devices may Increase Response Time for Fabric Operations Under Specific Conditions with the Edge Switch 2/24 When Port Binding is enabled, unauthorized devices (devices that are not set up by the Port Binding) with older technology can transmit numerous fabric login (FLOGI) requests, which are rejected by the Edge Switch 2/24.
Known Issues HSG80 Transparent Mode Not Recommended with Controller in SCSI-3 Mode with HP-UX Operating Systems Due to an issue with non-existent duplicate LUNs being displayed with the HP-UX operating systems, the HSG80 controller is restricted to SCSI-2 mode of operation when set to Transparent failover mode.
Known Issues Multiple FC HBA Ports in Separate Zones Multiple FC HBA ports in the same host should be placed in separate zones, or they might be perceived as potential targets (some HBAs log-in as both host and target). CTP Controls Port Lights Port lights on the edge switch and director products are controlled by the CTP functionality.
