Pinned topic V7000 WWNs status Hyper-V versus ESXi

‏2013-06-27T15:58:17Z |

hi guys

I have 3 mini datacenters which have ESXi and Hyper-V Cluster implemented. All are IBM Blades.

One interesting thing  I found is this behavior where my ESXi have all WWNs with status ACTIVE but my Hyper-V Hosts one WWN is ACTIVE and the other one is INACTIVE

ESXi is OK. http://screencast.com/t/7P8FStapFUN

Hyper-V not OK http://screencast.com/t/Pzo2vXOS

This behavior with the Hyper-V happens all my 6 IBM Blades I don't know why if the zoning and everything is the same as for ESXi Hosts.

Has someone else seen this behavior? 

 

thanks a lot

    Looks like a multipathing driver issue on the Hyper-V hosts.

    What status does the SDDDSM Multipath driver show?

     Start Program Subsystem Device Driver DSM Subsystem Device Driver Management.

    Then run the command "datapath query adapter"

    AndersLorensen I just reinstalled a Windows 2012 server and the first thing I did was to add MPIO Feature

     

    This are the screens:

    Active - Inactive Status:

    http://screencast.com/t/uLjm68rYHK

    Zoning: 

    Switch A:

    zone:  V7000_Node_1_2_Port1_BC#_Blade03_IO8
                    21:00:00:1b:32:80:50:fe - HBA from Server - ACTIVE
                    50:05:07:68:02:10:e4:08
                    50:05:07:68:02:10:e4:09

    Switch B:

    V7000_Node_1_2_Port2_BC13_Blade03_IO3
                    21:00:00:1b:32:9a:87:b5 - HBA from Server - INACTIVE
                    50:05:07:68:02:20:e4:08
                    50:05:07:68:02:20:e4:09
     

    "datapath query adapter" command

    AndersLorensen after some more research I found some interesting things like two yellow Fibre Channel Device..

    Installing this fix the active-inactive issue 

    Qlogic FC STOR Device Drivers for Windows

    qlgc_dd_fc_stor-9.1.10.26_windows_32-64.exe

    With that Zoning, you should have 4 paths, not 6. Does the server have 2 paths to another storage device?

    The zone name seems wrong to me, as if both zones give access to the same controller? Shouldnt 1 switch have said node_1_1 and the other Node_1_2?

    As long as you are sure you have access to both controllers you are fine, but if its wrong, you'll realize it, when 1 controller crashes, or you perform a firmware upgrade....

     

    I'm glad you found the QLogic fix.
