I am having a problem with connecting a SAN to a host over a fibre channel.
I already have one machine up and ronning with the Emulex LightPulse LP8000,
RedHat 7.3 and mounting a disk created on the SAN.
This was easy the first time, i just installed the lpfcdd driver following
instructions and when I did "insmod lpfcdd" the discs were
detected as /dev/sdb and /dev/sdc. When I try this on the new machine it
does not detect any disks but it does leave something in the

It says more stuff like this, I suppose this are the hosts in the fibre
switch, unfortunately, no storage device. I was able, however, to work with
2 SDLT tapes that are in the same fibre channel.
Does anyone else had this kind of trouble?
Thanks for the help.
