Re: CX600 / Navisphere to AIX / Naviagent connectivity problem?



I don't have navi in front of me, but there is an update option
somewhere.
Do you see other hosts on the CX? And how many hosts are there?
(not sure if you are running into it, but CXs have a limit on the
# of initiators they can support)

And finally do you see the host HBAs from the CLI (-port -list option)?

I have a configuration
issue with the following:

CX600 (FLARE 2.16.600.5.012) and a new server P550 / AIX 5.3 ML 4 with
Naviagent 6.7.0.4

What I was hoping for was to see the HBA's from the P550 automatically
appear in the Navisphere "Connectivity Status" window after starting
the Naviagent on the AIX host. I'm in day 9, and it ain't happenin...
I *think* I've read everything on the PowerLink site and read every
posted thread that looks like my problem. So far it's been all sloppy,
and no joe.

Here's what I have on the AIX host:

I've registered the HBA's manually with Navisphere to no avail.
Navisphere 6 -> Tools -> Connect Host / by IP advises that my host is
not managed or connected to a CLARiiON storage system.

I believe I've RTFM'd all the FM's I can find and hope someone will
point out the really obvious thing I'm overlooking.

Thanks much in advance all.
