Please assist with information about configuring an MDS 9124 FC Switch.
We have a HP MSA1000 SAN device, which was connected to a QLogic HBA on our Windows Server. We need to add connectivity to the MSA1000 from another HP server running VMware ESX Server so we acquired a Cisco MDS 9124 Switch.
However, the QLogic HBA reports the PWWN of the MSA1000 as offline after all three devices are connected through the MDS 9124.
From the MDS 9124, I can FCPING the PWWN of the QLogic HBA successfully and I can FCPING the PWWN of the MSA1000 HBA successfully. I've tried this with everything in the default VSAN 1 and I've tried creating a separate VSAN 2 and joining the FC ports.
It has to be something that I'm missing.
Can anyone point me to a good reference for configuring the MDS 9124, please? I'm using the PDFs from the Cisco site but I guess that I don't comprehend Fibre Channel architecture sufficiently.
Any guidance will be much appreciated.
