Qlogic Driver Solaris

All,

How do I get my Solaris 8 server to "see" what is attached on the
switch?

I've read the Procedure Manual (350 pages) for the Brocade 3250 as well
as the QLogic Manuals but so far I have not found any good documentation
that deals with the integration between the HBA and the Brocade switch.

I have 1 LTO2 tape drive on a 3250 Brocade switch, I have a lot more
actually, but I want to start out simple, with 1 attached device.

Also, in my cfgadm -al it shows the device that is attached to the
switch as failing...

c3 fc-private connected configured
unknown
c3::500104f00052cf22 tape connected configured
unknown
c4 fc-private connected configured
unknown
c4::500104f00052cf25 tape connected configured
unknown
c5 fc-fabric connected configured
unknown
c5::500104f00052cf1c unavailable connected configured
failing
c5::500104f00052cf1f unavailable connected configured
failing
c6 fc connected unconfigured
unknown

Note: c5 is the card/port(s) that is/are connected to the switch.

-> HPUltrium-LTO2 2GBps Drive.

Here is the switch information:

s3250:admin> nsshow
{
Type Pid COS PortName NodeName
TTL(sec)
N 010000; 3;21:00:00:e0:8b:14:12:05;20:00:00:e0:8b:14:12:05; na
FC4s: FCP
Fabric Port Name: 20:00:00:05:1e:35:78:77
NL 010155; 3;50:01:04:f0:00:52:cf:04;50:01:04:f0:00:52:cf:03; na
FC4s: FCP [HP Ultrium 2-SCSI K470]
Fabric Port Name: 20:01:00:05:1e:35:78:77
The Local Name Server has 2 entries }
s3250:admin>

I have setup a zone for this tape drive:

s3250:admin> zoneshow
Defined configuration:
cfg: myconfig001
zone1
zone: zone1 3,21; 3,50
zone: zone2 50:01:04:f0:00:52:cf:04
zone: zone3 50:01:04:f0:00:52:cf:03

Effective configuration:
cfg: myconfig001
zone: zone1 3,21
3,50

Here is my current qlc.conf:

# cat qlc.conf | grep -v ^# | grep . | sort
hba0-adapter-hard-loop-ID=0;
hba0-enable-adapter-hard-loop-ID=0;

# pkginfo -i | grep qlc
system SUNWqlc Qlogic ISP 2200/2202 Fibre Channel Device
Driver
system SUNWqlcx Qlogic ISP 2200/2202 Fibre Channel Device
Driver (64 bit)

# prtdiag -v | grep qlc
0 pci 66 PCI2 SUNW,qlc-pci1077,2312 (scsi-+

0 pci 66 PCI2 SUNW,qlc-pci1077,2312 (scsi-+

0 pci 33 PCI3 SUNW,qlc-pci1077,2312 (scsi-+

0 pci 33 PCI3 SUNW,qlc-pci1077,2312 (scsi-+

Yes, I know I have two dual-port cards; I am only using the first one at
the moment.

I've noticed there are actual QLOGIC HBA drivers, I have installed them
in the past but either I did not configure them properly, or something--
as I did not notice any effect with the drivers installed or not
installed.

The drivers being:

Solaris.QLogic.HBA.Fiber.Drivers$ ls
Troubleshooting\ For\ The\ QLogic\ 2342\ HBAs.pdf
qla2300-readme.txt
qla2300.sparc_pkg.Z
sansurfer2.0.30b23-1_solaris_install.bin
scli.1.06.16-15.SPARC-X86.Solaris.pkg.Z

Anyone have any clues?

Thanks,

Justin.
