EMC Clariion + Qlogic + Sun = mess

Post by toni.. » Sat, 30 Oct 2004 00:24:06



Anyone have experience attaching Sun systems using Qlogic HBAS to an
EMC CLariion?

I have a bit of a mess here.  

3 Different systems, each with 2 Qlogic 2342 HBAs using the OEM EMC
drivers from Qlogics site.

According to EMC, all the zoning, switchports and whatnot is
configured correctly.  However, if we attempt to enable persistant
binding, each system takes an extra 1/2 hour to boot becuase these
errors fill up the console and /var/adm/messages:

Then once the system gets past all this, I can see all the LUNS and
storage looks ok, but these messages get logged every 5 minutes.

I have had cases open and closed with Sun, Veritas and Qlogic all
telling me something is not right with the SAN, but EMC disagrees.

I suspect the sd.conf and/or qla2300.conf not being configured
correctly, but I dont have anything to compare it to.

Does anyone have a sample (working) copy of these files I could look
at just to compare notes?

Or any other thoughts on this mess?

TIA,

: TIA,

Edit the /kernel/drv/qla2300.conf file and enable extended logging.
The QLogic folk should be able to tell you what's happening if
you boot with that enabled. Also make sure you're running the 4.13.XX driver
or later as those have really good logging.

Out EMC people tell us to use Emulux HBAs for the Sun machines we have.
We are connecting to a few CX600s.
 
 
 

EMC Clariion + Qlogic + Sun = mess

Have you looked at using the Qlogic drivers ?

1. Enterprise 3500 and EMC clariion temperature

For both Sun E3500 and EMC clariion 4700, the normal operation
temperature should be less than 40 C.

But I searched sunsolve, and found that:

Board Type      Yellow Temps            Red Temps
--------------------------------------------------

CPU             73C - 82C               83C - up
I/O             60C - 67C               68C - up
CLOCK           60C - 67C               68C - up

Here is some question:

1. Does the above number mean that E3500 can run around 50 C without
problem? If yes, then how long it can stand? (Of course we are not doing
this on purpose, casually the A/C will down for a couple of hours).

2. Does anyone know that what the "Yellow Temps" and "Red Temps" for
EMC Clariion 4700? I searched google, and did find the info.
I want to know the EMC can stand what high temperature range and for
how long?

Thanks a lot.

2. Fdisk doesn't see where partion ends.

3. EMC Clariion 4500 (Your opinion)

4. Linux hangs on boot

5. EMC/Clariion in HA environment is unstable

6. Help with new ATI mach 64 rev 3

7. EMC Clariion IP4700 as SAN device

8. Does printf have side-effects on pointers?

9. ESS F20 & EMC Clariion mirrored volumes

10. EMC Clariion IP4700 as SAN device

11. EMC Clariion 4500 (Your opinion)

12. EMC Clariion IP4700 as SAN device

13. EMC Clariion 4500 (Your opinion)
