FC card showing "Not connected"

Hi there,

I have a Sun StorageTek 2501 plugged into a V440 (Solaris 10) via fiber and a crossover cable. This array worked fine for the past year, until I tried to install a second fiber card last night. Both cards came up OK in the OS, but I was no longer able to see my array.

I decided to remove the newly installed card so I could troubleshoot the original configuration. The problem that I'm having is that the fiber card doesn't see any physical connection to the array:

bash-3.00# fcinfo hba-port -l

bash-3.00# luxadm -e port
/devices/pci@1d,700000/SUNW,qlc@1/fp@0,0:devctl                    NOT CONNECTED

The LED"s on the back of the QLogic card are all blinking at once. I found something on the Qlogic support forum that says this means there's no physical connection.

The LED's on the array also show no activity on the fiber port.

Does anyone have suggestions? I've tried three cables now with no luck.

What's the status on the array? Can you see it on CAM or SANtricity?

Also, if you have a FC switch, try plugging the HBA into that. The SFP on the HBA could be dead.
