Introduction Introduction This manual contains information on the Fibre Channel Mass Storage Host Bus Adapter supported on HP e3000 Systems. Each supported adapter is identified along with general installation and troubleshooting instructions. The adapters in this manual are for Fibre Channel Mass Storage only.
About HP Fibre Channel Mass Storage About HP Fibre Channel Mass Storage HP Fibre Channel Mass Storage is a high-speed connection for mass storage, capable of transmitting data faster than existing SCSI mass storage interconnects. HP Fibre Channel Mass Storage networks are ideal for data-intensive applications, including data mining, atmospheric modeling, multimedia, geographic information systems, and medical imaging.
Introduction About HP Fibre Channel Mass Storage This fibre channel adapter card utilizes the Tachyon XL2 chip, the newest member of the Tachyon family product suite of Fibre Channel interface controllers. It operates at 2 Gigabits per second speed in a 4x PCI slot.

Fibre Channel Installation Prerequisites Installation Guidelines Be sure that you have installed MPE/iX 7.5 or later version on your HP e3000 system before you install the adapter. If you intend to boot with this adapter, verify that the system is running MPE/iX 7.5 or later operating system and that the PDC firmware is the correct version.
Verifying Installation Verifying Installation This chapter describes the procedures for configuring and verifying the installation of HP Fibre Channel Mass Storage host bus adapter on HP e3000 systems. Chapter 3...
Configuring Fibre Channel Mass Storage Adapter As with other device adapter cards for HP e3000, fibre channel adapters can also be configured through the MPE/iX utility SYSGEN. Assume a Fibre Channel adapter card at path 0/8/0/0. Start by configuring the first path component System Bus Location equal to zero “0”.
Determining Fibre Channel Devices Connected to FC Adapter There is no way in the HP e3000 system firmware Main Menu to identify the FC devices connected to an FC adapter card. Running ODE MAPPER2 from ISL does help to identify some FC devices but even this may not list out all the LUNs under the FC devices.
HP OPEN-3 shown with paths 0/8/0/0.0.0, 0/8/0/0.0.1 and 0/8/0/0.0.105. The last components of these paths refer to the LUN number of these disks. The type HP OPEN-3 usually refers to an XP512 device disk. Since the hardware paths of these three disks come under Nport 0/8/0/0.0, they all fall under the same Nport in the XP512 device.
Troubleshooting Troubleshooting This chapter describes the troubleshooting tools available to help diagnose any problems you may experience with the adapters. It covers fibre channel adapter LEDs, online and offline diagnostic tools, and explains the diagnostic flowcharts in the latter part of this chapter. Chapter 4...
TDUTIL is an MPE/iX utility, available for troubleshooting fibre channel host bus adapters, supported on HP e3000 systems. This utility provides the ability to display information such as the N_Port ID, Node World-Wide Name, Port World-Wide Name, link speed, chip revision number, VPD (Vital Product Data) information and more.
