Application server operating system: Windows 2003 R2 EE SP2 for x86
HBA: Emulex LightPulse LPe111 (driver 5.01.20.3, HBA Firmware version: 2.50A8, and FC HBA BIOS version: 1.70a3)
The storage device and the application server were on a DAS network as shown in Figure1.
Figure 1 DAS network
When the storage device was connected to the application server by using such a network, performing any of the following operations resulted in a failure to detect LUNs:
Change the FC host port mode.
Remove and reinsert optical fiber connecting the FC host port to the application server.
Connect the application server to another FC host port on the storage device.
Download the driver for Emulex LightPulse LPe111 HBA 5.01.20.04-1from http://www.emulex.com/ and upgrade the Emulex LightPulse LPe111 HBA to 5.01.20.04-1.
The storage device was connected to Emulex LightPulse LPe111 HBA through a DAS network. The incompliance of the Emulex LightPulse LPe111 HBA with the FC protocol led to a failure to detect LUNs when configurations were modified.
When encountering such a problem, contact Emulex technical support personnel for assistance.
