  • Page 39: Powering On The System

    Powering on the System The HP SureStore Fibre Channel SCSI Bridge 2100 ER is configured for most Fibre Channel installations without intervention. The basic configuration uses one Fibre Bridge connected directly to a Fibre Channel Host Bus Adapter (HBA) within a host computer. In expanded configurations (DLT libraries only), the Fibre Bridge may be connected to either a Fibre Channel HBA or a Fibre Channel hub.

  • Page 41: Changing The Default Settings, Connecting The Serial Cable

    Changing the Default Settings The basic Fibre Bridge configuration assumes there is only one Fibre Bridge included in the system. If this is a DLT installation and more than one Fibre bridge will be installed, or if there is another Fibre Channel device using the same address, you must change the fibre channel address, using the serial port of the Fibre Bridge.

CAUTION Making changes under options B or C does not change the settings in memory.

  • Page 47: Reconfigure The Fibre Channel Address

    Reconfigure the Fibre Channel Address Use the Fibre Channel Configuration menu to change from the hard address mode to the soft address mode. NOTE The Fibre Bridge default setting is hard addressing, where the address is preset to 71 (0x82). Use this procedure when an additional bridge is installed in a system or to resolve a Fibre Channel device ID conflict.

    This section describes potential problems and solutions. If you are unable to diagnose and solve a problem using these guidelines, contact an HP service representative or your sales representative. By using these suggested procedures, you can determine in advance some of the information that a service technician will need.

    4. If the fault indicator is illuminated, the hub is inoperable; further diagnostic procedures cannot be performed. Contact the sales representative or an HP service representative. Problem: Cannot Turn On the Fibre Bridge If the Fibre Bridge will not power on, use the following procedures to diagnose the problem: 1.

  • Page 55

    2. Make sure the libraries, Fibre Bridge, and hubs (DLT only) are powered on and connected appropriately before powering on workstations. If they were not connected, powered on, and configured properly before the NT workstation was powered on, restart the workstation (and any other on the loop, one at a time) so they can re-discover the library.

  • Page 56

    Troubleshooting Guide Troubleshooting 3. If the workstation does not display the SCSI devices under the Fibre Channel HBA in the control panel, restart the workstation and then recheck for the appearance of the library SCSI devices. 4. (If DLT) Run the tape diagnostic utility from the NT workstation to verify that the library and drives are detected and pass all self-tests.

  • Page 61: Defining Fibre Channel

    Fibre Channel Overview Defining Fibre Channel Defining Fibre Channel This overview of Fibre Channel is intended to briefly explain the technology, its potential uses, and possible problems that a user should consider. Individuals requiring more information should consider additional publications, seminars, and Fibre Channel user groups. Fibre Channel is an information transport protocol that can be used to send information between computers and computer sub-systems.

  • Page 62

    Fibre Channel Overview Defining Fibre Channel A fully implemented Fabric system supports over 16 million device addresses, allowing a user to send data from each device at 100 MB per second. Using fiber optic cable, Fibre Channel devices can be spaced at maximum intervals of 10 km, supporting distributed hosts in a campus environment, with centralized storage systems.

  • Page 64: Working With Fibre Channel

    Fibre Channel Overview Working With Fibre Channel Working With Fibre Channel Fibre Channel is a transport protocol. Differing from protocols such as SCSI, Fibre Channel does not use data manipulation commands. An addressing scheme with advance handshaking requirements verifies that data was transferred correctly. Fibre Channel specifications are divided into multi-layered, functional levels.

  • Page 65

    Fibre Channel Overview Working With Fibre Channel The Fibre Channel protocol will work when devices are connected or disconnected while data is being transferred because of this additional information. Error detection and recovery at all levels of the protocol are also provided.

  • Page 66

    Fibre Channel Overview Working With Fibre Channel Fibre Channel devices may use either of two modes: soft or hard addressing. Hard addressing is similar to the existing SCSI approach. Fibre Channel devices can only use the assigned address. If that address is already being used by another device, the Fibre Channel device will not respond to any bus activity.

  • Page 67: Problems With Fibre Channel, Physical Connections

    Fibre Channel Overview Problems with Fibre Channel Problems with Fibre Channel Fibre Channel accommodates many protocols and physical interfaces. Problems result in the attempt to do many things with one solution. Awareness of the potential problems helps users create and maintain reliable systems.

  • Page 68

    Fibre Channel Overview Problems with Fibre Channel Additional optical cable considerations are as follows: • Cable between two nodes must use the same core size. NOTE The limitation on mixing core sizes applies only to cable between two nodes and is only a concern when splicing or connecting optical cables directly together.

  • Page 69: Laser Power Control Systems, Device Addressing

    Fibre Channel Overview Problems with Fibre Channel Laser Power Control Systems There are two types of systems approved for use: OFC and non-OFC. These two types of control systems can exist on the same network, but are not optically compatible and cannot be hooked up to the same optical cable.
