Microsoft Server 2012 R2 Hyper-V virtual machine connection error

Publication Date:  2014-09-19 Views:  40 Downloads:  0
Issue Description
Environment:
OS: Microsoft Server 2012 R2 Hyper-V
HBA: Qlogic QLE10522
Fabric switch: Brocade
Storage: OceanStor S2200T V100R005C01
Network: connect the server to storage with FC directly.

Symptom:
Hyper-V virtual machine connection error when use NPIV function connect to storage.
Error information is “the operation is not supported by the fabric”
Alarm Information
no
Handling Process
Debug method:
Check if the customer connect server to storage with FC directly.
Root Cause
Root cause:
    Storage is not supported with NPIV function directly, NPIV function should supported by FC switch, storage just supports the space for LUN.
    To support the NPIV function, we should connect the server to Fabric switch first, then connect to storage. If we just connect the server to storage directly, NPIV function can’t work.
Suggestions
Solution:
Connect the server to Fabric switch first, then connect the Fabric switch to storage. And try NPIV function again.
