The FC HBA initiator cannot see any FC targets configured on DSS V6 or DSS V7.


This seems to be a related to driver mode of FC HBA.


Please go to Console Tools (CTRL+ALT+T) -> Modify driver options -> qla2xxx -> qlini_mode and try following possible values:

 "exclusive" - initiator mode will be enabled on load, disabled on enabling target mode and then on disabling target mode enabled back;

 "disabled" - initiator mode will n ever be enabled;

 "enabled" (default) - initiator mode will always stay enabled.

Open-E software impacted:

DSS V6 6.0up50 and higher
