new cna adapter not working qlogic 1143

We just installed a x1143a cna adapter with the assistance of a contracter, and the links aren't coming up . I'll add some information below, as we are unsure where the issue is currently.

 

running system controller config show-errors -verbose shows

Re: new cna adapter not working qlogic 1143

Looks like you have a 10Gbps Ethernet SFP+ in there, do you have it connected to an Ethernet switch or FC switch?

Re: new cna adapter not working qlogic 1143

Oh sorry they are connected to ethernet switches, pretty sure they are nexus 7700 series I don't have the exact model on me.

Re: new cna adapter not working qlogic 1143

I'm going to assume you've tried the obvious (to me) fixes of flipping the fibres in case of a TX/RX reversal as well as tried a new cable?

 

Assuming the above, can we get the following from the cluster:

net int show

net port show

 

And then the following from the Cisco:

show run int <relevant interface>

Re: new cna adapter not working qlogic 1143

Yep, we flipped the pairs our selves, and our network team went back out and checked again. We don't have any lifs on the ports yet as they are showing as down but here is what network port show sees(minus me playing with the ip ranges just in case). I'm pending the cisco output, but we can see light being sent through the cable as well, it feels like something isn't enabled somewhere. From my research at least we are using the correct cable type, correct sfp modules, and everything else so I'm at a loss on what we are missing.

Re: new cna adapter not working qlogic 1143

I should have asked for this the first time, but how about:

 

net port show -node san-nap01-03 -port e2* -instance

 

To take the switch out of the equation, have you tried connecting e2a and e2b back-to-back?

Re: new cna adapter not working qlogic 1143

The output is below. Once thing we found was is the switch is setup for lacp, which we wanted, but they tech didn't setup the ifgrp. I spent most the morning tracing the cables and making sure that the correct ports where cabled to the correct ports on the switch but still no luck. I forgot about your idea of connecting the directly and maybe thats the next thing we can try.

Re: new cna adapter not working qlogic 1143

I see in your original post a0b did not exist, but now the two ports, e2[a,b] are both in a0b. I don't think I'd try to the back-to-back connection while they're still in an ifgrp however, so you may wish to tear that down prior to that test.

 

Everything I see on the NetApp side looks good, at this point I'd check/try:

  • Replacing Fibre
    • Making sure it's multi-mode, assuming you're using SR SFP+s in a DC
  • Verifying SFP+ compatibility (SR vs. LR)
  • Verifying switch configuration

 

Just for completeness of information, maybe dump the output of ifgrp show -node <nodename> -ifgrp a0b -instance though at this point I'm pretty sure your side is fine, time to look at the physical stuff and the Cisco config.

Re: new cna adapter not working qlogic 1143

It turned out it was the first thing you mentioned, and something we've tried a few times, the polarity was reversed in the cables. We spent time with a  light meter  validating light was coming out of the cards and the cables and switched them again for the 4th or 5th time and the links came up.

Hey, I'm glad you got it working, I'm sure that was frustrating for you.
