In the “Internet & Networking” category, select “I/O Cards and Networking Software”. Select “Fibre Channel”. HP Fibre Channel Mass Storage is a high-speed connection for mass storage. It transmits 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.
Support Matrix at: Determine if the adapter is a Customer Replaceable Unit (CRU) using the HP Fibre Channel Host Bus Adapter Support Matrix. If the adapter is not a CRU, contact your HP representative for installation assistance. Field Replaceable Units (FRUs) must be installed or replaced by qualified Hewlett-Packard service representatives only.
Additional HBAs may be supported; see the HP-UX Fibre Channel (fcd and fclp) Host Bus Adapter Support Matrix at http://docs.hp.com/en/netcom.html#Fibre%20Channel information on supported products. To install the software bundle, follow these steps: Log in to the system as root. Insert the CD or DVD into the drive.
See the HP Fibre Channel Host Bus Adapter Support Matrix, at: http://docs.hp.com/en/netcom.html#Fibre%20Channel For detailed instructions on using OL* on HP-UX 11i v2 , 11i v3, and later HP-UX releases, see the Interface Card OL* Support Guide and the Interface Card OL* Support Matrix at: http://docs.hp.com/en/hpux11iv2.html...
If the ioscan output indicates a problem, contact HP for assistance. Verifying Connectivity Once your HP Fibre Channel Mass Storage software and hardware are installed and running, follow these steps to verify connectivity: Check the state of all Fibre Channel hardware and interfaces. Enter the ioscan command and verify that the Hardware State and the HW-Interface State are CLAIMED.
Bus Target LUN Domain Area Port Bus Target LUN Private Loop 8: HP-UX uses a Domain ID of 8 to indicate private loops. Fibre Channel switches seen by HP-UX hosts cannot be configured with domain ID of 8. 255. For other LUN methods, the value of this field is the Loop ID of the target device.
Table 2-3 Hardware Path Field Descriptions (continued) Fibre Channel Topology of HBA Field Value Fabric Topologies Target Depends on the Fibre For LUNs with Peripheral Device Channel topology and Addressing, the value of this field is the the LUN addressing lower 4-bits of the third byte of the method used.
Troubleshooting Fibre Channel problems can involve a variety of hardware and software components. A problem affecting the system may originate in another part of the Fibre Channel Mass Storage interconnect. If you cannot solve the problem on your own, contact your HP representative.

• Diagnose Tool The Diagnose Tool runs a loopback test on a Fibre Channel adapter. This test is destructive and must only be run by qualified personnel or on instruction from an HP Support Representative. NOTE: STM also includes a Firmware Update tool. This tool cannot be used to update the firmware on Fibre Channel adapters.
All HP Fibre Channel adapters support the HP Offline Diagnostics Environment (ODE). ODE is an offline support tools platform for troubleshooting HP/9000 and HP Integrity systems running without an operating system, or systems that cannot be tested using online tools. The offline environment is also useful for testing before a system is booted.

To verify that it is seated correctly, power on the system. Adapter problem, call HP. Contact your HP service representative for assistance. C. Verify that the connectors are solidly connected. Without powering off the system, make sure that the connectors on the fiberoptic cable match the keyed connectors on the adapter, and that they are solidly connected.
HP, and have loaded it into an EFI filesystem called fs0. Theefi_cp command can be used to copy files from HP-UX into an EFI partition. It is important to make sure that the EFI filesystem is not attached to the adapter you are about to update. It is often helpful to write down the EFI directory and filename of the firmware file, because you will be required to enter the directory and filename as part of the update.
EFI driver. Another way that an HP Integrity server can speed the boot process is to pass the known boot path directly to the EFI driver. The EFI driver then only needs to search the SAN for that particular target and LUN.
Select (highlight) the Configure Boot Parameters option and press Enter. Select (highlight) the Boot Target Scan option and press Enter. Select one of the scanning policies from the list presented. The Boot Path from NVRAM Targets option, which is the default option, requires additional configuration in the Configure Boot Devices option in the previous menu.
