Issues with QLogic CNA (1140-R6)

awwilhelmy

Forgive me, I am a network engineer. I am trying to setup an HA pair of FAS6280s running 8.1.4 7-Mode. I have installed QLogic CNAs (1140-R6) and they have been recognized by the FAS. However, I cannot get the link to come up (see below):

This is resolved. It was a configuration change on the fabric switch side. I needed to change the Admin port mode under the VFC configured on the 5k to "F".

 

cisco5k(config)#interface vfc XXX

cisco5k(config-if)#switchport mode F

Hi there,

 

Can you please post the output of "ucadmin show -c" and post details of the cable being used by the adapter as well as details of the device on the other side of the link?

 

I suspect the card might be in FC mode, in which case ucadmin modify will change status after a reboot.

 

The X1140 only supports TwinAx cables (not optical SFPs) and only supports the following models

 

  • X-SFP-H10GB-CU1M-R6 (Cisco TwinAx 1M, V02 or later)
  • X-SFP-H10GB-CU3M-R6 (Cisco TwinAx 3M, V02 or later)
  • X-SFP-H10GB-CU5M-R6 (Cisco TwinAx 5M, V02 or later)
  • X6566B-1-R6 (NetApp OEMed TwinAx cable 1M)
  • X6566B-3-R6 (NetApp OEMed TwinAx cable 3M)
  • X6566B-5-R6 (NetApp OEMed TwinAx cable 5M)

Hope this helps!

The other side of the connection is a Cisco 5k with FCoE configured.
