Lenovo v3700 v2 direct connect to AIX

i have directly connect AIX pwer 7 to lenovo v3700 v2 without San through fiber card. but i cannot see the WWPN to add AIX as host in management console.

A few thoughts:-
  • Are the lights on the two fibre cards?
  • Have you done anything to probe for the AIX-end fibre card at the SAN end?
  • Have you tried a known good cable in a test rig, tried it as you want it and then checked it again in a test rig afterwards to make sure the plugging in didn't break it?


I hope that these help,
Robin

Yes both fiber cards lights are blinking.
No ,and we are not using any switch we have directly connected storewize with AIX server.
Cable testing is done and working with Dell windows installed server.

It might have been better to open this thread in the AIX part of the forum. I have just noticed this thread by chance.

Anyway, the WWPN of the adapter can be queried by

Code:
root@system # lscfg -vl fcsX

where "X" is some number (0, 1, 2, ...)

Depending on which OS version and driver (basically either SDD or SDDPCM) you use you can also try:

Code:
root@system # datapath query wwpn   # (for SDD)
root@system # pcmpath query wwpn    # (for SDDPCM)

Depending on how you operate the system you can also find out the WWPN via the HMC if you have one.

I hope this helps.

Ok Next time i will take care of that . can i move now this question to AIX HOw please?

Code:
lscfg -vl fcs0

        Hardware Location Code......U78AA.001.WZSJK39-P1-C6-T1

As we are not using any switch in between so i think sddpcm or sdd will not be required ?

A moderator can do so - and someone already has, as i notice.

I have marked the relevant part bold in your answer:

Fibre Channel is in many respects a network and a WWPN is quite similar to a MAC address.

I hope this helps.
