Issue



NetBackup nbhba command does not recognize ports on some newer QLogic QLE-2562 cards as being on the same card.


Solution



When nbhba fails to recognize the ports are on the same card, each port must be individually modified as if there ports were on single port cards. This can be done by naming the World Wide Name (WWN) of each port when setting the mode to target. For example:

/usr/openv/netbackup/bin/admincmd/nbhba -modify -wwn <wwn string> -wwn <wwn string> -wwn <wwn string> -mode target

Where "wwn string" is the World Wide Name of the port.

This configuration option may be needed on QLA/QLE-2462, QLE-2562 (dual port) and QLE-2564 (quad port) cards.
