UCS 5108 + Hitachi HUS FC connection

Hi, we are configuring a UCS5108 with 6200 Fabric interconnect. We have 2 ports (31 and 32) connected to a Hitachi HUS storage via FC interfaces.

The problem is that the state of the ports appears as "admin down" and "Config State: Inconsistent".

Can you help us with the configuration of the FC ports in order to be able to connect with the storage?.

King Regards

Diego

Hello Diego,

1) Have you cofnigured these ports as FC storage ports ?

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/unified_computing/ucs/sw/gui/config/guide/2.0/b_UCSM_GUI_Configuration_Guide_2_0_chapter_0101.html#d44081e2818a1635

2) Do you have upstream FC switch to provide zoning features ?

3) Please share the output of " show int fc x/y " command from NX OS CLI

Hi Padma,

Thanks for the quickly response.

1) Yes, we have the ports configured as FC storage ports according to:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/unified_computing/ucs/sw/cli/config/guide/2.0/b_UCSM_CLI_Configuration_Guide_2_0_chapter_0101.html#d33757e2127a1635

2) No, we don't have an upstream FC switch. We have the 6200 conected to an ethernet switch via ports 1 and 2 configured as ethernet uplink port.

3) UCS-DEMO-A(nxos)# show interface fc1/32

fc1/32 is down (Administratively down)

    Hardware is Fibre Channel, SFP is short wave laser w/o OFC (SN)

    Port WWN is 20:20:54:7f:ee:71:47:00

    Admin port mode is F, trunk mode is off

    snmp link state traps are enabled

    Port vsan is 2

    Receive data field Size is 2112

    Beacon is turned off

    1 minute input rate 0 bits/sec, 0 bytes/sec, 0 frames/sec

    1 minute output rate 0 bits/sec, 0 bytes/sec, 0 frames/sec

      0 frames input, 0 bytes

        0 discards, 0 errors

        0 CRC,  0 unknown class

        0 too long, 0 too short

      0 frames output, 0 bytes

        0 discards, 0 errors

      0 input OLS, 0 LRR, 0 NOS, 0 loop inits

      0 output OLS, 0 LRR, 0 NOS, 0 loop inits

    last clearing of "show interface" counters never

Thanks a lot!

Hello Diego,

UCS needs upstream FC switch for zoning functionality.

The doc provides list of tested HDS arrays with UCS.

Did you try using different cables for FC port ?
