Issue Description
One VTL3605 (the qlogic 2462 dual-ports hba card is installed on Dell 2950) has VTL4.0 installed. When you try to select an HBA type for qlogic 2462, the HBA type is not found.
Alarm Information
None
Handling Process
Step 1  On the HBA selection screen, select q, but not any HBA. Wait until the VTL software is successfully installed.
Step 2  After the VTL software is installed, restart the system. When the VTL software starts to automatically run, run the following command to stop all VTL components.
# vtl stop all
Step 3  Run the following command to configure the HBA.
#vtl configtgt
Step 4  Select 2400. Configuring the HBA is complete.
Step 5  Restart the system. Then, the 2462 HBA is available
Root Cause
The VTL4.0 does not integrate with the 4 Gbit/s driver of the qlogic 2400 that is in the patch package. You should install the patch and then reconfigure the HBA.
