Operating Systems AIX Problem with a Network Interface
# 8  
Old 10-09-2007
One option is to force AIX to reconfigure itself by switching off, unplugging the fiber card and rebooting AIX. You may have to check documentation to find out how to get AIX to rebuild it's view of the actual available devices. Mine has previously done this on a simple reboot.

On removal of the card, AIX should deconfigure the devices, so have a good look and note all the devices associated with the card. When you reboot after removing, see if those devices have been deleted.

Then recycle the machine a couple of times to confirm the machine is happy, then shutdown, reinstall the card and see if it is recognized by the OS and reconfigures itself.

Make a note of any alerts/warning that get printed out on reboot and follow any instructions given.

hbaapi - Fibre Channel Storage Network Industry Association Host Bus Adapter Application Programming Interface (FC SNIA HBA API) DESCRIPTION
The Common HBA API provides a consistent HBA standard interface for accessing information in a Fibre Channel Storage Area Network (SAN) that would be implemented across vendors as a standard 'C' API supported by vendor specific library instances. This API library is thread-safe, but threads should not be cancelled when execution is in the API. The following functions are available in the API for managing a Fibre Channel HBA. This API would be exposed to upper level applications to control SAN functionality. Please refer to for details on structures used. 01. 02. 03. 04. 05. 06. 07. 08. 09. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15. 16. 17. 18. 19.
