We have a qlogic HBA (qla2xxx) running on Red Hat that seems to be failing on OS startup. Exactly how its failing I am not sure. The card was connected to a Cisco UCS environment but was removed and is now connected to a cisco 9138 but fails at fabric login. The FCID showing up for this HBA is 0x652100 and seems to have been configured in with the card. I have set up a persistent fcid on the switch but the HBA doesn't seem to be getting this far. Can anyone tell me how I can troubleshoot this further? This is a production system so I am limited with my actions. We have an a and b fabric, the failed HBA is on a fabric. The other HBA is working fine.
Thanks Steven, that was my thinking, as well, but I don't know how I would "turn off" a hard coded FCID? Working FCID's on this MDS 9134 are domain 65 00 00 through 65 19 00. I've already assigned a persistent FCID to this card - the next one on the list, namely 65 1a 00. However, the card is still not logging into the fabric.
However, since my original post yesterday, I've noted that this card as been receiving "MAC bit errors" for quite some time so I am suspecting bad hardware somewhere along the storage path. I will try replacing the GBIC (SFP) and fixing other possible hardware issues.
