***** Important Note ******

(1) EFIBoot was not enabled from loading to system memory:

If the adapter EFIBoot is not enabled from loading to system, this adapter
will not be configured. User must use LP6dutil or some other OS Utility to
enable the EFIBoot in order to make this card bootable.

(2) EFIBoot Bios was enabled to configure the adapter and No Link:

EFIBoot will wait for 15 seconds/adapter to confirm a link.

(3) If two or more adapters have same EFIBoot driver version, EFIBoot will
load only one driver.

(4) If there are adapters with different EFIBoot driver versions, EFIBoot
will load the highest version of the EFIBoot driver.

--------------- NOTES and CAUTIONS ---------------------
** Ensure that critical files on local boot disk are backed up
as a measure of protection.

(1) This procedure assumes there is already a 'local' boot disk.

(2) The size of the intended (target) fibre channel disk should
be big enough to hold all the file systems, and swap slice
of the local current boot disk.

(3) As there will probably be more than one logical disk drive on
the fibre channel adapter it will be necessary to use persistent
binding ('nailing' a specific scsi id to a specific wwpn or did).

(4) It will be necessary to correlate the intended boot disk displayed
by the 'probe-scsi-all' command to the devices displayed by the
operating system.

----------------------------------------------------------------------

----------------------- NEW CHANGES 3.01a1 ------------------------

1. Some variable in the scsidisk file was create as local variable, and
cause system fail to boot with "Last Trap: Illegal Instruction" error
message. The new fixed by change some variables to external variable
instead of local variable. (CR27598)

----------------------- NEW CHANGES 3.01a0 ------------------------

1. Support 8Gb/s HBA.
----------------------- NEW CHANGES 3.00a2 ------------------------
1. Fixed the issue if the len size of the decode-unit on device path /fp
is large than 2 digits, the decode-unit is fails to convert text
unit-string, and cause system is not bootable, and boot command
disabled. (CR25215)

2. Fixed the issue on some systems the probe-scsi-all command fails
if the HBA has no link. (CR25036)

3. In PCI Configuration Register there is a bit to control the HBA
bus master capability (BME). In dual channel HBA when one of the
Bus Master Enable bit is cleared can cause other channel HBA DMA
to be stuck, and cause system hangs or failure during the boot
time. This release takes care this issue by set the BME bit on
forever. (CR24911)(CR25005)

4. If there is some unsolicited frame coming from the switch or service
provider, and the Boot code is not configure to response the FC-CT
Unsolicited, this can cause the system hangs during boot or scan targets.
In order not to sent any FC-CT request, the new release removed the
mailbox config_ring command. (CR25233)

Things to Know Before You Download
• Before you download the OneConnect or LightPulse files, create a directory for them.
• As a measure of protection, ensure that critical files on your local boot disk are backed up.
• Firmware may be bundled with boot code. Boot code allows you to designate a device that is
attached to the adapter as a boot drive. If you select a firmware image that includes boot code,
the update procedure will load both the new firmware and the boot code at the same time. After
updating, refer to the Emulex Boot Manual for procedures on enabling the boot code on your
adapter.
• Emulex firmware files support both OneConnect and LightPulse adapters.
• For OneConnect adapters:
• Firmware and boot code are provided in a single flash image called a .UFI file.
• The UFI file contains all of the files that support all OneConnect adapters. The latest
files for your adapter are installed automatically when you use an Emulex utility to
update the firmware.
• The UFI file contains both firmware and boot code.
• For LightPulse adapters:
• Firmware is provided in a .ZIP file as a .ALL file or a .AWC file. You must manually unzip
the .ALL or .AWC file from the .ZIP file before you can use an Emulex utility to install it.
• Firmware differs between adapter models. Make sure you download the appropriate
firmware for your adapter.
• The .ZIP file may or may not include a boot code (.PRG) file.

Support Resources for PRIMEQUEST Servers Emulex Product Installation, Upgrades, and Configuration
Installing, upgrading and configuring Emulex products can be easily accomplished by following the checklists provided at the end of this document.
A word about Emulex configuration parameters:
Emulex drivers and software provide a great degree of configurability. In particular, each driver has a number of configuration parameters that allow the customization of the behavior of the driver. Because these parameters can significantly change the behavior of the Emulex product, great care must be taken in the setting of the parameters. Storage and system providers put forth great effort in determining what particular configuration parameters must be set to in order to provide optimal SAN performance.
For best results, never change the driver configuration parameters from their default values or the values that are specified by the storage and systems providers. Doing so can alter to performance of the SAN and possibly place the SAN in a configuration that is not supported or cause it not to operate properly.
How Emulex device driver configuration parameters work
It is very important to understand that Emulex configuration parameters are stored in the server in which the HBA is installed into. The parameters are acted upon by the device driver. Emulex configuration parameters are NOT stored in the HBA flash memory. Unlike some other SCSI and Fibre Channel HBAs, Emulex does not store any configuration information such as timers, Fibre Channel topology or link speed in the HBA flash. When an Emulex HBA is installed into a server, there is no separate configuration step required for the HBA. Proper driver configuration is all that is required. The exception is booting from SAN. In this case, the HBA BIOS utility must be used to configure the boot device. Said differently, the HBA must be told which Fibre Channel device contains the boot volume, and that information is stored in the flash. These settings are only in effect at boot time. Once the operating system loads the device driver, most settings of the driver are used and the HBA BIOS no longer functions.

HBAnyware 3.0a14 Linux Installation Instructions

This installation kit contains the following components:

HBAnyware version 3.0a14
SSC version 3.0a14
DFC Library version 80.163.7
Lputil version 2.0a13
HBAAPI version 2.1.c
DFC helper module

Dependencies:

lpfc driver version 8.0.16.27 or later

HBAnyware requires that the lpfc driver module be installed.

HBAnyware requires a minimum screen resolution of 1024 x 768.

HBAnyware requires the kernel development environment as described here:

This kit installs the Emulex Application Helper Module for the
currently running kernel. Since this installation procedure builds
the module for the currently running kernel, the kernel development
environment must be installed. For systems running Red Hat Enterprise
Linux (RHEL) 4, the appropriate kernel-devel package is required; for
example, a system with the 2.6.9-22.EL kernel would need the
kernel-devel-2.6.9-22.EL package, and a system with the 2.6.9-22.ELsmp
kernel would need the kernel-smp-devel-2.6.9-22.EL package. For
systems running SuSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) 9, the appropriate
kernel-source package is required; for example, a system with the
2.6.5-7.139-bigsmp kernel would need the kernel-source-2.6.5-7.139
package.
A log of each installation and uninstallation is recorded in the
following file:

/usr/src/lpfcdfc/utils-install.log
Installing HBAnyware:

1. Copy the applications kit tar file to a directory on the install machine
2. cd to the directory which you copied the tar file

HBAnyware requires that the lpfc driver module be installed.

HBAnyware requires a minimum screen resolution of 1024 x 768.

HBAnyware requires the kernel development environment as described here:

This kit installs the Emulex Application Helper Module for the
currently running kernel. Since this installation procedure builds
the module for the currently running kernel, the kernel development
environment must be installed. For systems running Red Hat Enterprise
Linux (RHEL) 4, the appropriate kernel-devel package is required; for
example, a system with the 2.6.9-22.EL kernel would need the
kernel-devel-2.6.9-22.EL package, and a system with the 2.6.9-22.ELsmp
kernel would need the kernel-smp-devel-2.6.9-22.EL package. For
systems running SuSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) 9, the appropriate
kernel-source package is required; for example, a system with the
2.6.5-7.139-bigsmp kernel would need the kernel-source-2.6.5-7.139
package.
A log of each installation and uninstallation is recorded in the
following file:

/usr/src/lpfcdfc/utils-install.log
Installing HBAnyware:

1. Copy the applications kit tar file to a directory on the install machine
2. cd to the directory which you copied the tar file
3. Untar the file: tar -xvf tarfilename

----------------------------------------------------------------------

1. System Requirements

The following distributions of Linux are supported by the Emulex
LPFC driver:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5

1.1 Red Hat Enterprise Linux 'kernel-devel' Package Requirement

For Red Hat Enterprise Linux installations, the -devel package
which matches the kernel package with the same version as the
currently running kernel must be installed for the LPFC driver
build to succeed. For example, a system with the 2.6.18-7 kernel
would need the kernel-devel-2.6.18-7 package.
2. Description of Install Procedure

The lpfc-install script installs the LPFC driver RPM. This RPM
installs the driver sources to the /usr/src/lpfc directory, builds
the driver for the currently running kernel, and then installs the
driver to the proper directory for the currently running kernel.

Once the RPM is installed, the lpfc-install script creates a new
ramdisk for the currently running kernel so that the 'lpfc' driver
is loaded when the kernel is initialized during system startup.
3. Known Issues

3.1 PCI Hot Plug Support for applications

3.1.1 Observed problem

PCI Hot Plug has been found to cause applications (HBAnyware utilities or
third party applications) that use the Emulex libraries (i.e. HBAAPI), to
misbehave or malfunction.

3.1.2 Workaround

A user should stop all applications that are accessing LPFC's HBAAPI
interface (HBAnyware utilities or third party applications) before
performing PCI Hot Plug of an LPFC HBA.

Use the following command to stop the HBAnyware application:
#/usr/sbin/hbanyware/stop_hbanyware

After performing PCI Hot Plug of the HBA you can restart the applications.

1. System Requirements

The following distributions of Linux are supported by the Emulex
drivers:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4
SuSE Linux Enterprise Server 9

2. Description of Install Procedure

The lpfc-install script installs both the LPFC driver and the LPFC
DFC driver RPMs. These RPMs install their driver sources to the
/usr/src/lpfc directory, build their drivers for the currently
running kernel, and then install the drivers to the proper
directory for the currently running kernel.

Once the RPMs are installed, the lpfc-install script creates a new
ramdisk for the currently running kernel so that the 'lpfc' driver
is loaded when the kernel is initialized during system startup.
The 'elxlpfc' init script is also installed and configured to start
and stop the 'lpfcdfc' driver during system startup and shutdown.

3. Release Notes

3.1 Red Hat Enterprise Linux 'kernel-devel' Package Requirement

For Red Hat Enterprise Linux installations, the kernel development
package with the same version as the currently running kernel must
be installed for the LPFC 8.0 driver build to succeed. For
example, a system with the 2.6.9-5.EL kernel would need the
kernel-devel-2.6.9-5.EL package, and a system with the
2.6.9-5.ELsmp kernel would need the kernel-smp-devel-2.6.9-5.EL
package.

3.2 SuSE Linux Enterprise Server 'kernel-source' Package Requirement

For SuSE Linux Enterprise Server installations, the kernel-source
package with the same version as the currently running kernel must
be installed for the LPFC 8.0 driver build to succeed. For
example, a system with the 2.6.5-7.139-bigsmp kernel would need the
kernel-source-2.6.5-7.139 package.

----------------------------------------------------------------------

1. System Requirements

The following distribution of Linux is supported by the Emulex
LPFC Application Helper Module:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 Update 2

This Emulex LPFC Application Helper Module will function with the
Emulex LPFC driver that ships with this distribution of Linux.
Other versions of the LPFC driver will not function properly with
this version of the Application Helper Module.

2. Installation Process

The ioctl-install script can be used to install and uninstall the
LPFC Application Helper Module RPM. This RPM installs the module
sources to the /usr/src/lpfcdfc directory, builds the module for
the currently running kernel, and then installs the module to the
proper directory for the currently running kernel.

Once the RPM is installed, the 'elxlpfc' init script is installed
and configured to start and stop the 'lpfcdfc' driver during system
startup and shutdown.

For usage information, please execute the command:

./ioctl-install --help

3. Release Notes

3.1 Red Hat Enterprise Linux 'kernel-devel' Package Requirement

For Red Hat Enterprise Linux installations, the "Development Tools"
package in the software development environment and the kernel
development package with the same version as the currently running
kernel must be installed for the Application Helper Module build to
succeed.

The name of the kernel development package depends upon the name of
the kernel for which the Application Helper Module will be
installed. For example, a system with the 2.6.9-11.EL kernel
would need the kernel-devel-2.6.9-11.EL package, and a system
with the 2.6.9-11.ELsmp kernel would need the
kernel-smp-devel-2.6.9-11.EL package.

example, a system with the 2.6.9-22.EL kernel would need the
kernel-devel-2.6.9-22.EL package, and a system with the 2.6.9-22.ELsmp
kernel would need the kernel-smp-devel-2.6.9-22.EL package. For
systems running SuSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) 9, the appropriate
kernel-source package is required; for example, a system with the
2.6.5-7.139-bigsmp kernel would need the kernel-source-2.6.5-7.139
package.
A log of each installation and uninstallation is recorded in the
following file:

/usr/src/lpfcdfc/utils-install.log
Installing HBAnyware:

1. Copy the applications kit tar file to a directory on the install machine
2. cd to the directory which you copied the tar file

the JRE.

HBAnyware and hbacmd currently will not run under Solaris 6. HBAnyware and hbacmd target OS versions
include Solaris 5.8, 5.9, and 5.10.

The JRE and instructions for installation can be found at http://java.sun.com/downloads/index.html

JAVA NOTE:
HBAnyware needs the java runtime binaries and libraries, so their path needs to be added to the beginning of
the PATH environment variable. For example, if your java runtime binaries are in /usr/java/bin, then include
this path in your PATH environment variable. (bash> export PATH="/usr/java/bin:$PATH")


HBAnyware is dependant on the SUNWemlxs driver package and the EMLXemlxu utilities package being installed.
Please ensure that these packages are installed before installing HBAnyware.

HBAnyware Installation Instructions

1. Run the pkgrm routine to remove any previous version of HBAnyware: pkgrm HBAnyware
2. Run the unpack script : ./unpack_apps
to obtain correct package version
3. Unzip the file: gunzip HBAnyware-3.2a15-.tar.gz
4. Untar the file: tar -xvf HBAnyware-3.2a15-.tar
5. Run the pkgadd utility: pkgadd -d .
6. When prompted by pkgadd, choose to install HBAnyware
7. When prompted by pkgadd, answer the HBAnyware installation option questions

Installing the driver using AutoPilot Installer (498 KB)

Introduction
AutoPilot Installer™ for Emulex® drivers provides installation options that range from a simple
installation with a few mouse clicks to custom unattended installations using predefined script files.
AutoPilot Installer is included with Emulex drivers and utilities in Windows executable files that can be
downloaded from the Emulex Web site. Run the distribution executable file to extract all of the software
needed for an installation, then complete the installation using AutoPilot Installer.
AutoPilot Installer allows you to install a driver using any of the following methods:
Hardware-first installation. The host bus adapter (HBA) is installed before the downloaded Emulex
drivers and utilities are installed. See page 3 for this procedure.
Software-first installation. This new installation method allows drivers and utilities to be downloaded
from the Emulex Web site and installed using AutoPilot Installer prior to the installation of any HBAs. The
drivers and utilities are automatically used when HBAs are installed at a later time. See page 4 for this
procedure.
Unattended installation. This new installation method allows you to set up AutoPilot Installer to run
unattended using customized scripts. Unattended installation can be used for both hardware-first and
software-first installations. See the complete Installation section of the driver user manual for more
information.

Updating the Driver Using AutoPilot Installer
If you are currently running an older driver version, use the hardware-first installation procedure to
update your driver. Begin at step 2 to update the driver.
You can also update the Emulex drivers following the manual installation method. See the complete
Installation section of the driver user manual for this procedure.
Distribution Executable File Overview
The distribution executable file is a self-extracting file that includes the following:
• AutoPilot Installer - installs driver and utilities.
• Driver - manages communication and data transfer between applications and I/O devices, using
HBAs as agents.
• HBAnyware utility - performs installation and configuration tasks on remote and local adapters.

Distribution Executable File Procedure
To run the distribution executable file:
1. Download the distribution executable file from the Emulex Web site to your system.
2. Double-click the distribution executable file. A window is displayed with driver version
information and Emulex contact information.
3. Click Next to access the Location window or click Cancel to close the window.
4. The default installation location is displayed. Browse to a different location, if desired. Click
Install to continue the installation.
5. The Progress window is displayed. As each task is completed, the corresponding checkbox is
automatically selected.
6. After all tasks are completed, a confirmation window is displayed. The Start AutoPilot Installer
checkbox is automatically selected. To start AutoPilot Installer later, clear this checkbox.
7. Click Finish to close the distribution executable file.

Prerequisites
• One of the following operating systems:
• Windows Server 2003 running on an x86, x64 or Itanium 64-bit platform.
• For the Emulex Storport Miniport driver, a Microsoft driver update may be
required. See the Emulex Web site for the latest update to the Microsoft Storport
driver.
