OneCommand Manager version 5.0 Release Notes
Date: January 2010
Product: Driver for Linux
Version: FC and FCoE version 8.2.0.63
NIC version 2.101.374.0
iSCSI version 2.101.374.0

New Features in the Driver for Linux
1. Supports the OCe1010x OneConnect Universal Converged Network Adapters (CNAs).
2. Supports the OneCommand Manager application version 5.0. Refer to the OneCommand Manager
application User Manual for more information.
3. Adds PCI ID support for the LPSe12002-ML1-E EmulexSecure Fibre Channel Adapter.
4. Adds support for Advanced Error Reporting (AER) for PCIe HBAs.
Resolved Issues in the Driver for Linux

Introduction
For information about any firmware release, see the release notes on the Emulex Web site. Release
notes include information such as new features, compatibility, known issues and resolved known issues.
This manual does not contain the procedures themselves. It serves as a guide to the publication that
contains the procedures you need.

Prerequisites
• Local boot disk.
• The intended Fibre Channel target should be big enough to hold all system files and the swap
slice of the current local boot disk.

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.

Introduction
This manual describes using and configuring the preboot execution environment (PXE or 'pixie') to boot
computers using a network interface independently of available data storage devices (such as hard
disks) or installed operating systems.
This manual also provides information for the Universal Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) PXE
option (read-only memory) ROM, loading the Emulex Universal Network Driver Interface (ELX UNDI)
driver from the EFI shell and configuring the Network Interface Card (NIC).
The PXE protocol is a combination of the Dynamic Host Control Protocol (DHCP) and the Trivial File
Transfer Protocol (TFTP) with subtle modifications to both. DHCP locates the appropriate boot server or
servers, and TFTP downloads the initial bootstrap program and additional files.
Network booting allows you to:
• Boot diskless systems such as thin clients and dedicated systems
• Deploy software and the operating system (OS) for new systems
• Automate system maintenance, such as backups
• Automate system checking, such as virus scanning
• Ensure a secure system

Pre-OS
PXE can be used in a "pre-OS" environment. Pre-OS is the process of loading a small operating
environment to perform a client management task before loading the final operating system from the
local hard drive. For example, with a pre-OS you can scan the hard drive for viruses. This guarantees
that the client is not infected before it starts. The Windows Deployment Services uses this to install
operation systems on local disks or Byte File System (BFS) disks.

PXE Boot Process
The PXE client boots up and starts up the PXE boot read-only memory (ROM). This is the boot code
physically located on the network interface card (NIC) adapter.
Figure 1 shows the boot process.
1. The PXE boot ROM sends a DHCP request extended with PXE specific options (step 1).
2. The DHCP responses contain the DHCP options (DHCPOFFERs) that include the Network
Bootstrap Program (NBP) filename and boot server lists(steps 2 through 5).
3. The PXE client attempts to download the specified NBP over TFTP from one of the specified
boot servers (steps 6 and 7).
4. The PXE client executes the downloaded NBP (step 8).

Note: If any of these steps fail, the boot process continues using the next available
device in the boot sequence.

Introduction
For information about any firmware release, see the release notes on the Emulex Web site. Release
notes include information such as new features, compatibility, known issues and resolved known issues.
This manual does not contain the procedures themselves. It serves as a guide to the publication that
contains the procedures you need.

Prerequisites
• Local boot disk.
• The intended Fibre Channel target should be big enough to hold all system files and the swap
slice of the current local boot disk.

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.

Introduction
This manual describes using and configuring the preboot execution environment (PXE or 'pixie') to boot
computers using a network interface independently of available data storage devices (such as hard
disks) or installed operating systems.
This manual also provides information for the Universal Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) PXE
option (read-only memory) ROM, loading the Emulex Universal Network Driver Interface (ELX UNDI)
driver from the EFI shell and configuring the Network Interface Card (NIC).
The PXE protocol is a combination of the Dynamic Host Control Protocol (DHCP) and the Trivial File
Transfer Protocol (TFTP) with subtle modifications to both. DHCP locates the appropriate boot server or
servers, and TFTP downloads the initial bootstrap program and additional files.
Network booting allows you to:
• Boot diskless systems such as thin clients and dedicated systems
• Deploy software and the operating system (OS) for new systems
• Automate system maintenance, such as backups
• Automate system checking, such as virus scanning
• Ensure a secure system

Pre-OS
PXE can be used in a "pre-OS" environment. Pre-OS is the process of loading a small operating
environment to perform a client management task before loading the final operating system from the
local hard drive. For example, with a pre-OS you can scan the hard drive for viruses. This guarantees
that the client is not infected before it starts. The Windows Deployment Services uses this to install
operation systems on local disks or Byte File System (BFS) disks.

PXE Boot Process
The PXE client boots up and starts up the PXE boot read-only memory (ROM). This is the boot code
physically located on the network interface card (NIC) adapter.
Figure 1 shows the boot process.
1. The PXE boot ROM sends a DHCP request extended with PXE specific options (step 1).
2. The DHCP responses contain the DHCP options (DHCPOFFERs) that include the Network
Bootstrap Program (NBP) filename and boot server lists(steps 2 through 5).
3. The PXE client attempts to download the specified NBP over TFTP from one of the specified
boot servers (steps 6 and 7).
4. The PXE client executes the downloaded NBP (step 8).

Note: If any of these steps fail, the boot process continues using the next available
device in the boot sequence.

Date: March 2009 Product: Driver for Linux Version: 8.2.8.14 This document describes the new features, resolved known issues and current known issues associated with this driver 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 support representative.
New Features Driver for Linux 8.2.8.14
1. Supports the LP21000 and LP21002 FCoE adapters. (10 Gb/s capable) 2. Supports the LPe1250, LPe1252, LPe12000 and LPe12002 adapters. (2, 4 and 8 Gb/s capable) 3. Supports the latest HBAnyware utility version 4.1 as part of the master kit. Refer to the HBAnyware Utility User Manual for more information. 4. Supports SuSE Linux Enterprise Server 11. (Intel x86, Intel Itanium2, Intel EM64T, AMD64, and PowerPC 64-bit architectures) 5. Adds interfaces via the sysfs file system to update speed and topology parameters without requiring link bounce. 6. Supports Power Management Suspend/Resume operations. 7.
Resolved Issues in Driver for Linux 8.2.8.14
Supports MSI-X interrupt handling.
Known Issues in Driver for Linux 8.2.8.14
There are no resolved issues in this driver version.
1. PCI Hot Plug may cause applications to malfunction Performing a PCI Hot Plug may cause the HBAnyware utilities or third party applications that use the Emulex libraries (i.e. HBAAPI) to behave unpredictably or malfunction. Workaround: 1. 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 2. Perform the PCI Hot Plug of the HBA. 3. Restart the application.
2. Deleting virtual ports or performing a PCI Hot Unplug may result in SCSI errors When you delete a virtual port via the sysfs interface or perform a PCI Hot Unplug of an Emulex HBA, the kernel may report one of the following errors: kernel: Synchronizing SCSI cache for disk kernel: FAILED or SCSI error: return code = 0x00010000. Workaround: These messages do not indicate a functional failure and can be ignored. 3. LILO is not Supported The LILO Boot Loader on i386 and x86_64 architectures is not supported for this driver stream. If the LILO boot loader is used, after the LPFC driver package is installed and upon reboot, an incorrect initial ramdisk is used. The system may not boot correctly. Workaround: Use the GRUB boot loader. This is the default boot loader for most of the Linux distributions. 4. Issue with the LPFC module order in the INITRD_MODULES list. On the SLES10 SP1 system, if another SCSI driver such as aic79xx, is loaded right after the LPFC driver through the initrd image, an interruption might occur in the SCSI mid-layer discovery process on the LUNs connected to LPFC’s Fibre Channel. This interruption can prevent the release of the SCSI discovery reference count and the LPFC driver cannot unload. Workaround: Do not add SCSI drivers right after the LPFC module in the INITRD_MODULES list. 5. The LPFC driver may not finish discovery when two initiator ports are swapped. This causes all devices accessible through one or both of these initiator ports to time out and all I/O to fail. Workaround: Do one of the following:
• When swapping cables replace each cable, one at a time, and allow for discovery to complete before replacing the next cable. To determine if discovery is complete read the "state" sysfs parameter.
• When swapping cables, allow devloss timeout to fire before replacing the cables. (This fails all outstanding I/O.)
6. Deleted virtual ports may appear to be mounted, but are inaccessible. While Emulex provides management utilities to enable you to delete virtual ports, the LPFC driver cannot detect whether devices accessed through a virtual port are in use. You can delete a virtual port even when devices accessible through the virtual port are mounted or when I/O is outstanding to the device. If file systems are mounted on a virtual port and that virtual port is deleted, the file systems still appear to be mounted but are not be accessible. Workaround: Before deleting virtual ports, prepare the system affected by unmounting all the devices accessible through the virtual ports, and verifying that there is no outstanding I/O. 7. 4 Gb/s HBAs in virtualized environments that use Direct I/O or SFPT do not Initialize. Default driver configuration fails to initialize 4 Gb/s HBAs in virtualized environments that use Direct I/O or SFPT(Storage Fixed Pass through) .This may result in a system hang or uninitialized LPFC HBA in Intel VT-d and AMD-V IOMMU systems.

Date: September 2009
Product: HBAnyware® Utility and the Windows Drivers
Version: 4.1
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 HBAnyware Utility Version 4.1
1. Designed for adapter FCoE Initialization Protocol (FIP), subject to subsequent industry testing.
2. Supports CIM interface (operational name, target node WWN and flash contents program ID) for
VMware ESX 4i and VMware ESX 4.0 COS.
3. Virtual port and virtual machine mapping information is displayed.
New Resolved Issues in HBAnyware Utility Version 4.1
1. New - HBAnyware GUI is now available on the IA64 architecture.
It is no longer required to use the HbaCmd command line utility on an IA64 system.
2. All virtual port information did not appear if you manually resized the window.
3. Target information for a virtual port erroneously showed a LUN Masking tab.
4. Using HbaCmd, the change World Wide Name function did not check for physical targets for all inband
ports.
5. Using HbaCmd, the help message for the setauthconfig function erroneously stated that accepted values
were between 0 and 5. The accepted values are between 1 and 5.
6. Using HTTPS, a port number was not used for some functions if the restricthttptoloopback parameter
was set to false.
7. The internal and external loopback diagnostic tests were not available for LP21000 and LP21002
adapters.
Known Issues in HBAnyware Utility Version 4.1
1. The HBAnyware utility GUI application only launches from IBM Director version 5.1.
Workaround: There is no workaround at this time.
2. On LPe1105 adapters, diagnostic beaconing is available only if the adapter does not have VPD.
Workaround: There is no workaround at this time.
3. On LPe12000 adapters, volatile WWN changes may not be supported.
Workaround: Update firmware; see the Emulex Web site for more information.
Caution: Verify the version of OEM firmware to use based on OEM qualifications and support.
4. On LP21000 and LP21002 adapters, FIP mode may need to be disabled to bring a link up.
If you have upgraded to the new CEE firmware that supports FIP and connect the port to a switch with
firmware that does not support FIP, the port’s link will be down. If you plug a loopback plug into an
adapter port with FIP disabled, the link will be down.
Workaround: Disable FIP mode on the adapter port.
5. On Windows Vista platforms, the Add Range of Hosts feature in the HBAnyware utility is not
available.
Workaround: There is no workaround at this time.
6. If the HBAnyware CIM Client is used to access a VMware ESX server, up to 127 LUNs can be
displayed in the discovery-tree (numbered 0 to 126).
Workaround: There is no workaround at this time.
7. Not all adapters may appear in the discovery-tree.
Although the HBAnyware utility provides support for LightPulse adapters that are reprogrammed with
WWPNs outside the typical Emulex range (such as HP’s Virtual Connect for Fibre Channel on the
BladeSystem c-Class platform) not all adapters appear in the discovery-tree.
Workaround: The HBAnyware utility must be deployed across all servers on the SAN, as well as any
other management console used for out-of-band management, so that all adapters appear in the
discovery-tree.
8. Multiport adapter models are represented in the HBAnyware utility discovery-tree as
multiple adapters with a single port icon.
For older mulitport HBA models, the HBAnyware utility displays each port under individual adapter icons
in the discovery-tree. Newer multiport HBA models (LP9802 or later) are represented by a single adapter
icon that branches out to multiple port icons.
Workaround: There is no workaround at this time.

Introduction
AutoPilot Installer® for Emulex® Storport Miniport and NDIS Miniport drivers provides installation options
that include simple installations with a few mouse clicks to custom unattended installations that use
predefined script files and text-only installations. AutoPilot Installer is included with Emulex drivers and
utilities in Windows executable files (driver kit installers) that you can download from the Emulex Web
site.
There are two types of driver kits that can install the Emulex drivers and utilities:
• Full Installation Driver kit (full driver kit) - Includes the Emulex protocol drivers for Fibre Channel
(FC), Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE), iSCSI, and Ethernet and the complete
OneCommand ManagerTM application, including a Graphical User Interface (GUI) and a
Command Line Interface (CLI). The full driver kit also provides an option to create AutoPilot
Installer kits that you can customize and distribute on your network. Although the full driver kit
will not install on the Server Core installation option of Windows Server 2008 (Server Core), it
can be used to create kits for those platforms.
• Core Installation Driver kit (core driver kit) - Includes the Emulex drivers and the OneCommand
Manager application CLI, but not the OneCommand Manager application GUI. The core driver
kit is required for use with Server Core platforms. You can only customize the core driver kit on
the system where it is installed. It cannot be used to create AutoPilot Installer kits for other
platforms.
Run one of the driver kit installers to extract all of the software needed for an installation, then complete
the installation using AutoPilot Installer.

Introduction
NIC Teaming
In order to increase throughput and bandwidth, and to increase link availability, you can configure
multiple NIC cards to appear to the network as a single interface. This is NIC teaming, or multilink
trunking.
NIC teaming allows you to group multiple NICs as a single virtual device. Depending on the teaming
mode, one or more interfaces can be active. When multiple NICs are combined this way, the group is
called a team.
Why Teaming?
NIC teaming has several advantages.
• Increased bandwidth
Two or more Ethernet connections are combined to share the load, thus increasing bandwidth.
• Load balancing
Link aggregation enables distribution of processing and communication across multiple links.
• Higher link availability
Prevents a single link failure from disturbing traffic flow.
Teaming Types
There are different types of teaming:
• Switch independent
• Failover - If configured for fault tolerance, the system provides only failover.
• Smart load balancing - If configured for load balancing, failover is included.
• Switch dependent
• Generic trunking - Link aggregation static mode
• Link Aggregation Control Protocol (LACP)
Failover (FO)
Failover is a basic feature of teaming. Though a team may have multiple members, only one member is
active at a time. When the active team member disconnects (due to link down, disabled or any other
reason) the failover mechanism selects another team member (which is in linkup state) and traffic
continues.
All the team members use the same MAC address, the MAC address of the primary team member.
When the primary team member reports linkup state, traffic fails over to the primary adapter, if the team
is configured for auto failback.

NIC version 2.101.374.0
iSCSI version 2.101.374.0

New Features in the Driver for Linux
1. Supports the OCe1010x OneConnect Universal Converged Network Adapters (CNAs).
2. Supports the OneCommand Manager application version 5.0. Refer to the OneCommand Manager
application User Manual for more information.
3. Adds PCI ID support for the LPSe12002-ML1-E EmulexSecure Fibre Channel Adapter.
4. Adds support for Advanced Error Reporting (AER) for PCIe HBAs.
Resolved Issues in the Driver for Linux
1. Multipath Package Issues Fixed
Corrected issues with the multipath package functions with the OneConnect UCNA.
2. FCF Failures Addressed
Resolved various FCF failures.
3. Corrected Adapter Reset
Corrected adapter reset and offline/online stress test failing with I/O errors.
4. Multiple Spurious Interrupts Corrected
Required OneConnect UCNA to set up and use single FCP EQ only under INTx interrupt mode. Changed
lpfc_use_msi module parameter to use INTx mode (not MSI) by default. This prevents multiple spurious
interrupts from the firmware.
5. Extended Error Handling Issue Resolved
Blocked all SCSI I/O requests from the midlayer until target rediscovery during Extended Error Handling
EEH.
6. VPort Log Out Issue Corrected
Corrected an issue that prevented a VPort to log out if deleted.

Corrected an issue that resulted in the mbox sysfs attribute smaller than the mailbox extension size.
8. LUN Panic Fixed
Fixed a potential panic if LUNs were unmapped.
9. CPU Lockup Fixed
Resolved an issue that caused the CPU to lock up or hang during boot when authentication is
enabled (fcauthd process is started).
10. Hot Plug Issue Resolved
Fixed a potential system panic issue during PCI Hot Plug.
11. List Corruption Fixed
Corrected an issue that caused a list corruption while unloading the driver.
12. Fabric Login Issue Fixed
Resolved an issue that caused the frame to be zeroed on the wire after a fabric login FLOGI .
13. Advanced Error Reporting Issue Resolved
Added logic to stop and abort all I/Os on an HBA for an advanced error reporting (AER) uncorrectable
non-fatal error handling.
14. AER sysfs entry Point Changed
Made the AER sysfs entry point return "Operation not permitted" for OneConnect UCNAs.
15. Unsolicited CT Exchange Sequences Fixed
Fixed handling of unsolicited CT exchange sequences.
16. Clear Virtual Link Support Added
Added support for Clear Virtual Link command.
17. devloss Timeout Issue Fixed
Corrected a devloss timeout issue when multiple initiators were in the same zone.
