QLA2432 support

RICCO4400

Hi community

After searching in IMT Tools for HBA QLA2432 and DOT 8.1.2, I didn't find any trace for this HBA

Does it mean it is not supported configuration?

As we have a lot of ESX Hosts (Dell server) with this HBA and we would like to upgrade our NetApp SAN from DOT7 to 8

Regard

Ric

It's a sample dump courtesy of Google search from another machine (of course 😞

QLogic Fibre Channel HBA Driver: 8.02.00.06.05.03-k

  QLogic QLE2462 - PCI-Express to 4Gb FC, Dual Channel

  ISP2432: PCIe (2.5Gb/s x4) @ 0000:0c:00.0 hdma+, host#=1, fw=4.04.05

So... is your HBA in fact QLE2462?

And just another proof found:

ISP2432 is the ASIC used on QLE246x

I'm waiting for root password regarding our request

Radek, it's not the display issue

as we did a reboot of the PowerEdge

It shows HBA during boot process = ISP2432

Great Radek

I'm confused

This is a new managed infrastructure for us (but with old equipment)

I'm more used with Emulex

Thanks to you and Thomas

Are you sure about QLA2432?

Please post the output from "cat /proc/scsi/qlxxxx/y"

Any chances this explains the confusion?

If your HBA is in fact QLE2460 or QLE2462, they are both supported with DOT 8.1.2
