Pinned topic HX5 2 Node + Emulex 10GB VFA I + 10Gb Eth passthru + Cisco Nexus 559

‏2013-01-15T15:52:03Z |
Hi,
I need an advice.
We have 2 node HX5 (7873-FJA, and 7873-FBA), that comes with the default Emulex 10Gb VFA 1 (FRU# 49Y4261) for each node.
When configured the network, it hung (hung when disable/enable device or when display network property and click Ok button).
This HX5 using IBM 10Gb Ethernet Passthru module (PN 46M6181) and connect to Cisco Nexus 5596.
We tested connect directly to another HX5 2 node in other chassis with the same configuration, when ping to each other, the result is : the host is unreachable.

Isolated, we tested using Emulex 10Gb VFA2 (FRU# 90Y3569), and it works fine.
Any idea why Emulex 10Gb VFA 1 cannot work ?

Firmware of Emulex VFA1 : 4.0.1062.0
Drivers : we use (Ver 4.0.317.0, Ver 4.1.334.25, Ver 4.2.390.6) All drivers doesn't fix the problem.

Thx.
Jonathan M

    Hi,
    It fixed now after we upgrade the Emulex 10Gb network Firmware to Ver 4.2.412.0

    Thx.
