Today (Saturday) We will make some minor tuning adjustments to MySQL.

You may experience 2 up to 10 seconds "glitch time" when we restart MySQL. We expect to make these adjustments around 1AM Eastern Daylight Saving Time (EDT) US.

Fibre Channel link not ready on Netra 240

Hi,
One of my Netra 240 went into hung state and I had to reboot it. I powered it off and tried booting it again but unsuccessful. It is not connected to SAN and have local disks. Not able to boot in failsafe mode too.
There are two disks of 72GB, both are mirrored in SVM. It complains about Fibre channel failure, but what seems to be failed here on both disks ? This doesn't look like disk issue. Being old server, this server is not in Oracle support. I can buy replacement part, if I know, what may be failed part here.
Code:
{1} ok probe-scsi-all
/pci@1c,600000/scsi@2,1

I did diag-level max and power-cycle server, but its output is not giving me much clue. Here is output of obdiag

Well, yes, it is complaining about a Fibre Channel failure. You have a qlc adapter (QLogic OEM board) in there. If you haven't already done so, I would be inclined to remove that adapter from its slot and just plug it in again. It might just be poor contacts with the backplane. Also, unplug/replug the FC cable(s) at both ends.

Does the qlc BIOS announce itself on boot? If so, can you key the required sequence (CTRL-Q if I remember correctly) and enter the BIOS setup?

Just now, I opened the box, resetted FC cables, rebooted the server and it is still complaining about same error.
While booting, it doesn't tell me, where I can go in BIOS setup. Below is output of post boot. Can you see something which I missed ?

If I assume that card may be bad, do I need to replace MB, because this card is on -board ?

Well I can't see too much wrong with that POST output apart from the CRITICAL ALARM which you need to reset.

Code:
sc> setalarm critical off

Does test-all still give the same error(s) as your post#1?

Yes, still giving same errors

Well it would be a bit of a tragedy if you replace the motherboard but this one is fixable. The diags recognises that there's a QLogic chipset on the PCI bus but announces a failure. Take a look at the enablecomponent command in case the device has been accidentally blacklisted. Also, the QLogic BIOS announcement at boot time may be/could be disabled so try (several times) to enter CTRL-Q as the box boots to see if you can enter the QLogic BIOS setup. That would at least prove that it's talking.

You have a QLogic chipset that is being recognised but not passing diags.

Since you say this is an on-board adapter then it could mean a motherboard change but that's a bit drastic if it's caused by just some setting.

Fibre Channel HBA recommendations?

We will be buying new Xeon E5-based servers for our datacenter and were wondering which Fibre Channel host bus adapters we should select for these. The choices are Emulex or QLogic (8Gb FC HBAs). Anybody have any recommendations on which is the better choice? Thanks in advance.... Hardware
