Boot Code works with the existing BIOS on supported systems and allows the system to boot from a connected Fibre Channel drive.
Platform: Intel (32-bit) The current BIOS provides x86 boot capability through the use of INT13 system
BIOS calls. The BIOS supports:

(1) Multi-topology: Fabric Point to Point; FC-AL: Private loop and Public loop
(2) Multi-initiators: Up to 64 adapters in a system
(3) Multi-LUNs: Up to 256 LUNs
(4) Multi-boot: Complies with the BIOS Boot Specification (BBS).
(5) EDD (Enhanced Disk Drive Services): Supports both EDD 3.0 and EDD 2.1
depending selection in BIOS Utility.
(6) Boot fail over feature: There are eight boot entries that can be configured.
If the first boot entry fails the system is still able to boot from the
second configured boot entry and so on.

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

(1) BIOS downloading

This version of BIOS image has increased size from 44K to 48K. As a result, it might
fail during the downloading of the BIOS .prg file. One way to correct the problem
is to download the firmware .AWC file WITHOUT the BIOS image
(for example: dd390a7.awc). Then, download the BIOS .prg file.
(2) BIOS was not activated (Enabled)

If the adapter BIOS is not activated (enabled) by LP6dutil or other O.S. utility,
this adapter would not be configured. Also, there is "No BIOS support" message next
to this adapter in BIOS Utility. User must use LP6dutil or other O.S. Utility to
activate (enabled) the BIOS in order to make this card bootable.

--------------- 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 (binding 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 1.50a4 ------------------------

1. Added the new link speed selection feature that uses the command
"set-link-speed" to select the desired link speed. The new link
speed now can support up to 4 Gigabaud, and the default link speed
is Auto Select. (CR16047)

2. Added the new Fcode Diag Switch feature that uses the command
"set-fdiag-switch" to turn the diag switch on/off. If the Diag
switch is on, the detail debug error message will be print out
during POST or boot time if there is any link/boot failure.(CR16048)

3. Bug fixed where HBA did not retry under a LOGO response and caused
fabric boot failure. (CR15707)

4. Bug fixed where HBA did not retry the START/STOP command on a SCSI
Queue Full response and caused fabric boot failure. The new number
of retries for Queue Full is up to 10 times and then give up.(CR16049)

5. Changed the new number of retry condition for SCSI Busy to retry
forever. (CR16050)

6. Added the host "port-wwn" and "node-wwn" of the HBA into the reg
property during POST time which was required by system to
allow to collect the Host wwpn/wwnn info during boot.(CR16051)

7. Fixed the bug on fail to report fcp-lun on software BOOT format.
(CR16052)

8. Added the new feature "show-wwpn-child". User can use this command
to show the LUNs target with the desired WWPN only instead of all
WWPNs and LUNs.(CR16053)

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

(1) BIOS downloading

This version of BIOS image has increased size from 44K to 48K. As a result, it might
fail during the downloading of the BIOS .prg file. One way to correct the problem
is to download the firmware .AWC file WITHOUT the BIOS image
(for example: dd390a7.awc). Then, download the BIOS .prg file.

(2) BIOS was not activated (Enabled)

If the adapter BIOS is not activated (enabled) by LP6dutil or other O.S. utility,
this adapter would not be configured. Also, there is "No BIOS support" message next
to this adapter in the BIOS Utility. User must use LP6dutil or other O.S. Utility
to activate (enabled) the BIOS in order to make this card bootable.

--------------- 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 1.41A4 ------------------------

1. The "ct-req" info. was erased by adding the "memory erase" function
before "ct-req" dma-free in previous release which cause the fcode
fail to see the target in fabric mode, the new fixed is removed the
"memory erase" function from "ct-req" before the dma-free. (CR11852)
----------------------- NEW CHANGES 1.41A3 ------------------------

1. In some system server, during the DR, there is a WARNING message
with memory leaked issue. The new release corrected this issue by
adding additional memory erase functions to set to 0 all the previously
obtained dma memory before the fcode released out the dma and virtual
address mappings by dma-map-out and dma-free. (CR11350 & CR11351)

2. In the universal boot code, during the boot time, there is an
warning message "Warning: Fcode sequence resulted in a net stack
depth change of 1", the new release fixed issue by remove some
unnecessarily call function in the fcode. (CR11538)

3. In some system, if the HBA was fail on the initialization by pulling
or remove the cable during boot time, the .properties command in the
ok prompt will display the wrong mode number of the HBA. The new
fixed will not show any model number of the HBA in this scenario. If
the system initize the HBA properly, it will display the correct
model number of the HBA. (CR9842)

4. Added the new instruction for using the alpa to set the boot id in
readme file. (CR9781)

----------------------- NEW CHANGES 1.50a4 ------------------------

1. Added the new link speed selection feature that uses the command
"set-link-speed" to select the desired link speed. The new link
speed now can support up to 4 Gigabaud, and the default link speed
is Auto Select. (CR16047)

2. Added the new Fcode Diag Switch feature that uses the command
"set-fdiag-switch" to turn the diag switch on/off. If the Diag
switch is on, the detail debug error message will be print out
during POST or boot time if there is any link/boot failure.(CR16048)

3. Bug fixed where HBA did not retry under a LOGO response and caused
fabric boot failure. (CR15707)

4. Bug fixed where HBA did not retry the START/STOP command on a SCSI
Queue Full response and caused fabric boot failure. The new number
of retries for Queue Full is up to 10 times and then give up.(CR16049)

5. Changed the new number of retry condition for SCSI Busy to retry
forever. (CR16050)

6. Added the host "port-wwn" and "node-wwn" of the HBA into the reg
property during POST time which was required by system to
allow to collect the Host wwpn/wwnn info during boot.(CR16051)

7. Fixed the bug on fail to report fcp-lun on software BOOT format.
(CR16052)

8. Added the new feature "show-wwpn-child". User can use this command
to show the LUNs target with the desired WWPN only instead of all
WWPNs and LUNs.(CR16053)

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

(1) BIOS downloading

This version of BIOS image has increased size from 44K to 48K. As a result, it might
fail during the downloading of the BIOS .prg file. One way to correct the problem
is to download the firmware .AWC file WITHOUT the BIOS image
(for example: dd390a7.awc). Then, download the BIOS .prg file.
(2) BIOS was not activated (Enabled)

If the adapter BIOS is not activated (enabled) by LP6dutil or other O.S. utility,
this adapter would not be configured. Also, there is "No BIOS support" message next
to this adapter in BIOS Utility. User must use LP6dutil or other O.S. Utility to
activate (enabled) the BIOS in order to make this card bootable.

--------------- 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 (binding 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 1.50a4 ------------------------

1. Added the new link speed selection feature that uses the command
"set-link-speed" to select the desired link speed. The new link
speed now can support up to 4 Gigabaud, and the default link speed
is Auto Select. (CR16047)

2. Added the new Fcode Diag Switch feature that uses the command
"set-fdiag-switch" to turn the diag switch on/off. If the Diag
switch is on, the detail debug error message will be print out
during POST or boot time if there is any link/boot failure.(CR16048)

3. Bug fixed where HBA did not retry under a LOGO response and caused
fabric boot failure. (CR15707)

4. Bug fixed where HBA did not retry the START/STOP command on a SCSI
Queue Full response and caused fabric boot failure. The new number
of retries for Queue Full is up to 10 times and then give up.(CR16049)

5. Changed the new number of retry condition for SCSI Busy to retry
forever. (CR16050)

6. Added the host "port-wwn" and "node-wwn" of the HBA into the reg
property during POST time which was required by system to
allow to collect the Host wwpn/wwnn info during boot.(CR16051)

7. Fixed the bug on fail to report fcp-lun on software BOOT format.
(CR16052)

8. Added the new feature "show-wwpn-child". User can use this command
to show the LUNs target with the desired WWPN only instead of all
WWPNs and LUNs.(CR16053)

Information
IBM Branded LP9802DC HBA
Boot Code works with the existing BIOS on supported systems and allows the system to boot from a connected Fibre Channel drive.
Platform: Intel (32-bit) The current BIOS provides x86 boot capability through the use of INT13 system
BIOS calls. The BIOS supports:

(1) Multi-topology: Fabric Point to Point; FC-AL: Private loop and Public loop
(2) Multi-initiators: Up to 64 adapters in a system
(3) Multi-LUNs: Up to 256 LUNs
(4) Multi-boot: Complies with the BIOS Boot Specification (BBS).
(5) EDD (Enhanced Disk Drive Services): Supports both EDD 3.0 and EDD 2.1
depending selection in BIOS Utility.
(6) Boot fail over feature: There are eight boot entries that can be configured.
If the first boot entry fails the system is still able to boot from the
second configured boot entry and so on.

Although a specific BIOS file for the LP6000 does not exist, all current
versions of BIOS will scan and process any LP6000 Adapters in the system.

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

(1) BIOS downloading

This version of BIOS image has increased size from 44K to 48K. As a result, it might
fail during the downloading of the BIOS .prg file. One way to correct the problem
is to download the firmware .AWC file WITHOUT the BIOS image
(for example: dd390a7.awc). Then, download the BIOS .prg file.
(2) BIOS was not activated (Enabled)

If the adapter BIOS is not activated (enabled) by LP6dutil or other O.S. utility,
this adapter would not be configured. Also, there is "No BIOS support" message next
to this adapter in BIOS Utility. User must use LP6dutil or other O.S. Utility to
activate (enabled) the BIOS in order to make this card bootable.

--------------- 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 1.41A4 ------------------------

1. The "ct-req" info. was erased by adding the "memory erase" function
before "ct-req" dma-free in previous release which cause the fcode
fail to see the target in fabric mode, the new fixed is removed the
"memory erase" function from "ct-req" before the dma-free. (CR11852)
----------------------- NEW CHANGES 1.41A3 ------------------------

1. In some system server, during the DR, there is a WARNING message
with memory leaked issue. The new release corrected this issue by
adding additional memory erase functions to set to 0 all the previously
obtained dma memory before the fcode released out the dma and virtual
address mappings by dma-map-out and dma-free. (CR11350 & CR11351)

2. In the universal boot code, during the boot time, there is an
warning message "Warning: Fcode sequence resulted in a net stack
depth change of 1", the new release fixed issue by remove some
unnecessarily call function in the fcode. (CR11538)

3. In some system, if the HBA was fail on the initialization by pulling
or remove the cable during boot time, the .properties command in the
ok prompt will display the wrong mode number of the HBA. The new
fixed will not show any model number of the HBA in this scenario. If
the system initize the HBA properly, it will display the correct
model number of the HBA. (CR9842)

4. Added the new instruction for using the alpa to set the boot id in
readme file. (CR9781)

Changes and Corrections:

-- Changes and corrections between 1.91a5 and 1.91a4:

Ensure proper DMA behavior upon channel reset. (CR 19091, 19096)

Pre-initialize configuration region to avoid errors if host reads it
before the initial configuration is complete. (CR 19177, 19187, 19188)

-- Changes and corrections between 1.91a4 and 1.91a3:

Several issues with FLASH access during reset of only one port have been
eliminated by synchronizing the flash access speed of both ports.
(CR 17472, 17475, 17539, 17542, 17625, 17626, 17647, 17648, 18212,
18213, 18307)

An exceptionally rigorous test produced a timeout where the rings other
than ring 0 were ignored. The firmware has been corrected to check all
four rings. (CR 15952, 16262, 16279, 16280, 16281, 16282, 16283)

Improved handling of queued data from tape. Recovery of CRC errors
no longer indirectly trigger an abort on slow PCI environments.
(CR 17410, 17510, 17520, 17608, 17610, 17633, 17634, 17635, 18280,
18343)

Changed handling of dropped FCP-2 tape data frames. Upon detecting a
missing frame, the firmware now automatically requests a retransmission
from the drive. (CR 14851, 15184, 16975, 18329)

The firmware now correctly handles intentional IOCB starvation.
(CR 16818, 16873, 16972, 17211)

An I/O timeout during tape operation was eliminated by delaying
processing of any FCP2 errors during discovery. (CR 17363, 18287, 18288)

Improved handling of linked FCP commands in order to avoid timeouts.
(CR 15602, 16114)

Implemented a workaround to avoid a hardware DMA overrun condition.
(CR 17780, 17834, 17908)

To avoid buffer deadlocks, the HBA now completes any existing DMA for
an exchange prior to allocating more free buffers. (CR 16862, 16874,
16973, 18347)

Dump command now correctly dumps memory above 1MB. (CR 18374)

Improved buffer handling logic during error conditions to avoid aborted
exchanges. (CR 17701, 18291, 18292, 18349)

Improved handling of erroneously-sized ECHO responses. (CR 18330,
18332, 18333)

The HBA now transmits all outstanding ACKs before processing any
previously blocked data. (CR 16354, 18334, 18335)

The transmit queue is now restarted after ACK handling to avoid a
transmit hang in Class 2. (CR 18362, 18363, 18364)

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
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.

Ensure that there is at least one credit when doing REG LOGIN to
fabric port. (CR 12460, 12466, 14357)

Parity errors due to loop init received during speed negotiation
are now processed properly. (CR 13463, 14239, 14241)

Corrected a problem where the download of corrupted firmware would
return the proper error, but refuse any further commands.
(CR 13241, 14584)

Improved handling of the RESET_RING command to completely initialize
the ring and no longer return an unnecessary response.
(CR 13325, 13631, 13632, 13374, 14446, 14450, 14589)

Ensure that no frames waiting for resources are accidentally released
on to the link when killing exchanges.
(CR 12183, 13630, 14591, 14447)

Invalid exchange handling was improved by not issuing an error when
buffers are returned for use. (CR 13413, 14593)

Added code to correctly process and count error counter overflows.
(CR 13328, 13629, 14444, 14594)

Receiving a LIP while loop master and while waiting for LIHA will no
longer cause a timeout. (CR 13636, 13638, 14448, 14595)

Added or refined features as per customer requests. (CR 8636, 8663,
9182, 8080, 8082, 9811, 9864, 10120, 10574)

Several symptoms, ranging from I/O errors to HBA hang, were caused by
the power management reset process and Solaris "Dynamic Reconfiguration"
process, both of which required a change in the HBA to assure that the
PCI configuration was ready within a very short time after HBA reset.
(CR 5204, 6941, 6961, 7097, 8634, 8635, 8637, 8638, 9398, 10212)

Corrected an incorrect response to an RRQ timeout. ABTS is now sent
if the RRQ to the host times out. (CR 10119, 9364)

When several commands were issued to the HBA and then one was aborted,
the firmware would occasionally not throw away all the frames for the
aborted exchange. The result was that the HBA would stop transmitting
R-RDY and no further credit would be issued. The rare instance in which
this could happen has been corrected. (CR 9393)

A rare condition where an incorrect IOCB could be returned to the host
if the exchange is aborted before the buffer list has been queued by the
host has been corrected. (CR 10117, 10058)

WWN upon receipt of a fiber login is now validated to avoid a problem
where the switch tries to access the HBA as a G-port,
(CR 10229, 10568, 10569)

FCP recovery has been improved by including the proper reason codes
for tapes. (CR 10173, 10575, 9530)

A switch login problem in point-to-point-only mode with certain
transceivers has been corrected. (CR 9406)

A CLOSE in point-to-point mode is no longer ignored. This corrects a
deadlock problem in OldPort mode when connecting to a switch.

Improved handling of linked FCP commands in order to avoid timeouts.
(CR 15602, 16114)

Implemented a workaround to avoid a hardware DMA overrun condition.
(CR 17780, 17834, 17908)

To avoid buffer deadlocks, the HBA now completes any existing DMA for
an exchange prior to allocating more free buffers. (CR 16862, 16874,
16973, 18347)

Dump command now correctly dumps memory above 1MB. (CR 18374)

Improved buffer handling logic during error conditions to avoid aborted
exchanges. (CR 17701, 18291, 18292, 18349)

Improved handling of erroneously-sized ECHO responses. (CR 18330,

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.

missing frame, the firmware now automatically requests a retransmission
from the drive. (CR 14851, 15184, 16975, 18329)

The firmware now correctly handles intentional IOCB starvation.
(CR 16818, 16873, 16972, 17211)

An I/O timeout during tape operation was eliminated by delaying
processing of any FCP2 errors during discovery. (CR 17363, 18287, 18288)

Improved handling of linked FCP commands in order to avoid timeouts.
(CR 15602, 16114)

Implemented a workaround to avoid a hardware DMA overrun condition.
(CR 17780, 17834, 17908)

To avoid buffer deadlocks, the HBA now completes any existing DMA for
an exchange prior to allocating more free buffers. (CR 16862, 16874,
16973, 18347)

Dump command now correctly dumps memory above 1MB. (CR 18374)

Improved buffer handling logic during error conditions to avoid aborted
exchanges. (CR 17701, 18291, 18292, 18349)

Improved handling of erroneously-sized ECHO responses. (CR 18330,
18332, 18333)

returned without error in cases where the exchange has completed.
(CR 13413)

Improved handling of stale frames from completed exchanges so they
can no longer affect new exchanges. (CR 14479)

-- Changes and corrections between 1.91a0 and 1.90a4:

Ensure that resynch happens after link down. This remedies a problem
encountered only when connecting test equipment to the HBA. (CR 10135,
13634, 14443)

Ensure that we have at least one credit when doing REG LOGIN to
fabric port. (CR 12460, 12466, 14357)

Response to an unsolicited IP broadcast frame was corrected to comply
with FC spec. (CR 11019, 14596)

Interrupt handling of a PCI abort has been corrected so that the rare
out-of-order interrupt is no longer regarded as a cause for resetting

(CR 13241, 14584)

Improved handling of the RESET_RING command to completely initialize
the ring and no longer return an unnecessary response.
(CR 13325, 13631, 13632, 13374, 14446, 14450, 14589)

Improved response to give priority to outstanding ACKs when in
target mode under heavy load. (CR 13327, 13633, 14445)

Added code to correctly process and count error counter overflows.

Prerequisites
· The host computer must provide 3.3VDC bus power
The open 32-bit or 64-bit (64-bit recommended) PCI bus slot can be
either 3.3 VDC or 5.0 VDC signaling interface
·
· PCI bus clock rate of 66 MHz is preferred
Multimode fiber optic cable (50/125 m m or 62.5/125 m m) with LC
connectors, used with short-wave lasers

Install the Host Bus Adapter Board
Record IEEE and serial numbers.
Each host bus adapter port is shipped with a unique address identifier
called the IEEE address. Since this adapter has two ports, there are two
IEEE addresses. The IEEE address is used when configuring your
system. The serial number is used when communicating with Emulex.
All numbers are clearly marked on the board. We recommend that you
record these numbers before installing the adapter.
Turn off and unplug the computer.
Remove the computer case.
Remove the blank panel from an empty 32 or 64-bit PCI bus slot.
Compare the removed panel to the bracket on the host bus adapter.
Follow steps 5-8 to change the bracket if they are different sizes.

Note The host bus adapter comes with a standard PCI
bracket installed. The low profile mounting bracket is
shorter than the standard bracket; approximately
3.11 in. (7.9cm) compared to 4.75 in. (12.06 cm)
long.

Remove the mounting bracket screws from the top of the host bus
adapter.
Remove the bracket and store it for future use.
Align the new mounting bracket tabs with the holes in the HBA.
Replace the screws that attach the HBA to the bracket.
Insert the host bus adapter into the empty 32 or 64-bit PCI bus slot.
Press firmly until it is seated.
Secure the host bus adapter's mounting bracket to the case with the panel
screw or clip.
Replace the computer case and tighten case screws.
The host bus adapter is now installed in the PC and is ready for media
attachment.

Install Host Bus Adapter Board
Record IEEE address and serial number.
Each host adapter is shipped with a unique address identifier called the
IEEE address. The Fibre Channel industry uses a World Wide Name
(WWN) derived from the IEEE address, and this number is need for
arbitrated loop connectivity. The serial number is used when
communicating with Emulex. Both numbers are clearly marked on the
board. We recommend that you record these numbers before installation.
1.
2. Turn off and unplug the computer.
3. Remove the computer case.
4. Remove the blank panel from an empty 32- or 64-bit PCI bus slot.
Insert host adapter board into the empty 32- or 64-bit PCI bus slot.
Press firmly until the board is seated.
5.
Secure the host adapter's mounting bracket to the case with the panel
screw.
6.
7. Replace the computer case and tighten case screws.
The host adapter is now installed in the PC and is ready for media attachment.

Change the GBIC Connector
A GBIC, or Gigabit Interface Converter, is a connector that offers a flexible
choice of copper or fiber optic media. A GBIC supports either short wave or long
wave optical transmission. These types are available:
· Short-wave fiber optic GBIC with dual SC connectors
· Long-wave fiber optic GBIC with dual SC connectors
· Copper GBIC with DB9 connector
Caution An Emulex supplied GBIC is required to maintain regulatory
compliance with worldwide certifications (for example, FCC,
C-Tick, CE, and so on).
A GBIC should be matched with its cabling to obtain optimum performance and
distance. For example, a short wave fiber optic GBIC best supports either
62.5/125 or 50/125 multimode cable, while a long wave fiber optic GBIC
functions best with 9/125 single mode cable.

The open 32-bit or 64-bit (64-bit recommended) PCI bus slot can be
either 3.3 VDC or 5.0 VDC signaling interface
·
· PCI bus clock rate of 66 MHz is preferred
Multimode fiber optic cable (50/125 m m or 62.5/125 m m) with LC
connectors, used with short-wave lasers

Install the Host Bus Adapter Board
Record IEEE and serial numbers.
Each host bus adapter port is shipped with a unique address identifier
called the IEEE address. Since this adapter has two ports, there are two
IEEE addresses. The IEEE address is used when configuring your
system. The serial number is used when communicating with Emulex.
All numbers are clearly marked on the board. We recommend that you
record these numbers before installing the adapter.
Turn off and unplug the computer.
Remove the computer case.
Remove the blank panel from an empty 32 or 64-bit PCI bus slot.
Compare the removed panel to the bracket on the host bus adapter.
Follow steps 5-8 to change the bracket if they are different sizes.

Note The host bus adapter comes with a standard PCI
bracket installed. The low profile mounting bracket is
shorter than the standard bracket; approximately
3.11 in. (7.9cm) compared to 4.75 in. (12.06 cm)
long.

Remove the mounting bracket screws from the top of the host bus
adapter.
Remove the bracket and store it for future use.
Align the new mounting bracket tabs with the holes in the HBA.
Replace the screws that attach the HBA to the bracket.
Insert the host bus adapter into the empty 32 or 64-bit PCI bus slot.
Press firmly until it is seated.
Secure the host bus adapter's mounting bracket to the case with the panel
screw or clip.
Replace the computer case and tighten case screws.
The host bus adapter is now installed in the PC and is ready for media
attachment.

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

1. System Requirements

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

SuSE Linux Enterprise Server 10

1.1 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 driver build to succeed. For
example, a system with the 2.6.16.11-7-ppc64 kernel would need the
kernel-source-2.6.16.11-7 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 Loading order of LPFC driver in initial ramdisk

3.1.1 Background

In SLES10, the modules to be loaded as part of the initial ramdisk are
specified through the variable INITRD_MODULES in /etc/sysconfig/kernel. The
modules are loaded in exactly the order in which they appear in
INITRD_MODULES. This is important when starting the system via the initial
ramdisk and accessing the root file system.

The LPFC driver installation adds the "lpfc" driver in the INITRD_MODULES
list of modules at the end of the list, if the "lpfc" list entry is not
already there. If it is already present it will not make any updates.

2.6.9-22.ELsmp kernel would need the kernel-smp-devel-2.6.9-22.EL
package.

1.2 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.

Prerequisites
· The host computer must provide 3.3VDC bus power
The open 32-bit or 64-bit (64-bit recommended) PCI bus slot can be
either 3.3 VDC or 5.0 VDC signaling interface
·
· PCI bus clock rate of 66 MHz is preferred
Multimode fiber optic cable (50/125 m m or 62.5/125 m m) with LC
connectors, used with short-wave lasers

Install the Host Bus Adapter Board
Record IEEE and serial numbers.
Each host bus adapter port is shipped with a unique address identifier
called the IEEE address. Since this adapter has two ports, there are two
IEEE addresses. The IEEE address is used when configuring your
system. The serial number is used when communicating with Emulex.
All numbers are clearly marked on the board. We recommend that you
record these numbers before installing the adapter.
Turn off and unplug the computer.
Remove the computer case.
Remove the blank panel from an empty 32 or 64-bit PCI bus slot.
Compare the removed panel to the bracket on the host bus adapter.
Follow steps 5-8 to change the bracket if they are different sizes.

Note The host bus adapter comes with a standard PCI
bracket installed. The low profile mounting bracket is
shorter than the standard bracket; approximately
3.11 in. (7.9cm) compared to 4.75 in. (12.06 cm)
long.

Remove the mounting bracket screws from the top of the host bus
adapter.
Remove the bracket and store it for future use.
Align the new mounting bracket tabs with the holes in the HBA.
Replace the screws that attach the HBA to the bracket.
Insert the host bus adapter into the empty 32 or 64-bit PCI bus slot.
Press firmly until it is seated.
Secure the host bus adapter's mounting bracket to the case with the panel
screw or clip.
Replace the computer case and tighten case screws.
The host bus adapter is now installed in the PC and is ready for media
attachment.

Dependencies:

lpfcdriver 6.10b, or later
hbaapi 2.0f

Java Runtime Environment

Version 1.4 or later of the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) must
be installed. HBAnyware will not run under earlier versions of
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 included in 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="$PATH:/usr/java/bin")


HBAnyware is dependant on lpfcdriver being installed, so install lpfcdriver first if it is not already installed.

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-3.0a17-sparc.tar.gz
4. Untar the file: tar -xvf HBAnyware-3.0a17-sparc.tar
5. Run the pkgadd utility: pkgadd -d .
6. When prompted by pkadd, choose to install HBAnyware
7. When prompted by pkadd, answer the HBAnyware installation option questions
Running the HBAnyware GUI

1. su to root
2. Run the script /usr/sbin/hbanyware/hbanyware
Helpful scripts

/usr/sbin/hbanyware/stop_hbanyware - This script will stop all HBAnyware daemons and GUIs.
Run this if you need to unload the driver.

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.
