OneCommand Manager version 5.0

Release Notes
Date: January 2010
Product: OneCommand Manager™ Application for the ESX 3.5 Driver for VMware
Version: 5.0
This document describes the known issues associated with this utility build release. For the latest product documentation, go to www.emulex.com. If you have any questions or require additional information, contact an authorized Emulex Corporation technical representative.
New Features in OneCommand Manager Application Version 5.0
1. This is a new product. Refer to the OneCommand Manager Application User Manual for details.
2. Support for Emulex OneConnect™ OCe10102 UCNAs.
Resolved Issues in OneCommand Manager Application Version 5.0
1. This is a new product. There are no resolved issues.
Known Issues in OneCommand Manager Application Version 5.0
1. Remote Management FC-based (also known as in-band) remote management is not supported in this release.
Workaround: There is no workaround at this time.
2. Core Kit Upgrade Procedure The following procedure should be used to upgrade to the 5.0.18.4-1 OneCommand Manager core kit. NOTE: The upgrade process has changed for this release.
1. Remove the lpfc, be2net and (if installed) be2iscsi driver RPMs from the server.
2. Install the lpfc, be2net and (if desired) be2iscsi 2.101.411.0 driver RPMs. Do not reboot the server.
3. Upgrade to the elxocmcore-esx35-5.0.18.4-1 RPM using the “rpm –U” command.
4. Upgrade the OneConnect UCNA to the 2.101.411.0 firmware.
5. Reboot the VMware ESX 3.5 server.
3. Running the OneConnect™ FCoE Adapter without the NIC Driver It is not advised to run a OneConnect FCoE adapter without the NIC driver installed. Many management functions are unavailable:
1. Firmware
a. Download
b. Active and flash firmware versions
c. Firmware status
d. BIOS version
e. Boot code version
2. All diagnostics including beaconing
3. Transceiver data display
4. Port disable
5. Physical port link status
6. All CEE settings
7. Event log display (CLI only)
8. FAT dumps
Workaround: There is no workaround at this time.
4. CEE Priority Groups
Switching from DCBX enabled to disabled and then back to enabled may not return the Priority Groups and FCoE/iSCSI priority to the switch settings.
Workaround: Disable and re-enable the port (hbacmd setportenabled or Physical Port Info tab).
If you disable DCBX and then modify the priority groups and/or FCoE/iSCSI priority, when you enable DCBX the CEE properties will not return to the switch settings.
Workaround: Modify the priority groups and FCoE/iSCSI priority values. After they are saved, the CEE properties should match the switch.
If you disable DCBX using HBACMD (setceeparams MAC/WWPN dcbxstate 0), all Priority Group priorities and bandwidths are reset to 0. This also causes all active Priority Group priorities and bandwidths to be 0.
Workaround: Use the GUI to disable DCBX or re-enter the Priority Groups and bandwidths using the “setceepriority” and “setcnapgbw” commands. However, this workaround will cause the issue described in the previous paragraph.
5. Installation Warning Message A warning message similar to the following may appear on some systems when the RPM is installed:
ldconfig: /usr/lib/libdfc.so is not a symbolic link
This message can appear when the library configuration utility, ldconfig, encounters unexpected files in the /usr/lib/ directory. These files may exist because an earlier Emulex utility kit that does not use RPM for package management was previously installed on the system. If RPM encounters previously existing files that are not owned by RPM packages currently installed on the system, then it will save them with the ".bak" extension in the /usr/lib directory.
6. Limit Centralized Management Centralized management of adapters across VMware ESX servers must be limited to, at most, one OneCommand Manager GUI or CLI client. This applies to OneCommand Manager application remote connectivity for TCP/IP-based management.
In addition, the remote OneCommand Manager application client must be configured to disable its periodic auto-polling of discovered remote servers (which is enabled by default). This is done using the client GUI drop-down menu item shown here:
Click Discovery --> Modify Settings and select the resultant settings as follows: In-Band (Fibre Channel) - Manual Refresh Out-if-Band (TCP/IP) - Manual Refresh Expire Undiscovered HBA - Never Remove
As a result of this constraint, Emulex suggests that the OneCommand Manager application remote management of Windows, Linux, and Solaris servers take place in an environment separate from that of VMware ESX servers. It is advisable to keep the discovery domains disjointed.
Workaround: There is no workaround at this time.

Installing the driver using AutoPilot Installer (496 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.
• Driver-specific utility (elxcfg for FC Port, lputilnt for Storport Miniport and SCSIport Miniport) -
provides a user-friendly interface that allows you to examine, manage and configure local HBAs.
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.

Installing the driver using AutoPilot Installer (496 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.
• Driver-specific utility (elxcfg for FC Port, lputilnt for Storport Miniport and SCSIport Miniport) -
provides a user-friendly interface that allows you to examine, manage and configure local HBAs.
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.
AutoPilot Installer Introduction
The Emulex AutoPilot Installer is a Fibre Channel HBA installation wizard for Windows. The AutoPilot
Installer installs (or updates) Emulex drivers and utilities and configures HBAs, drivers and utilities.

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.

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.
• Driver-specific utility (elxcfg for FC Port, lputilnt for Storport Miniport and SCSIport Miniport) -
provides a user-friendly interface that allows you to examine, manage and configure local HBAs.
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.
