We have an HP Blade system with 2 VirtualConnect Fiber modules. Each module has 1 uplink to a separate 9140 switch.
The HP fiber modules requires that the switches have NPIV enabled, which they do.
We have 2 blades which work fine. We've presented LUNs to them and they can see them. I am trying to get a 3rd blade configured so that it talks with the SAN. I configured it just like the 2 working blades, but I'm not having any luck. I go into the HBA BIOS and scan fiber devices, and it comes back with nothing.
I am somewhat of a beginner at this and confess I'm not 100% confident I've done everything that needs to be done.
Another thing I thought was odd is that in Fabric Manager, I do not see the 3 blades as end devices. I don't even see the blades that are currently working.
I'm not sure where to go at this point.
Thanks for any help you can provide.
