Abstract

The following document present the procedure to update HP-UX 11i Gigabit Ethernet drivers and were those can be obtained.

Support for Gigabit Ethernet Host Bus adapters (HBAs) is provied with several software bundle.

Verify the current installed drivers

To verify the driver state of the current drivers use "swlist -l fileset -a state" command.

Example:

swlist -l fileset -a state `swlist -l bundle  | grep Fibr | awk '{print $1}'`
# Initializing...
# Contacting target "hosts"...
#
# Target:  host:/
#

# FibrChanl-00
# FibrChanl-00.FC-TACHYON-TL
  FibrChanl-00.FC-TACHYON-TL.FC-TL-KRN  configured
  FibrChanl-00.FC-TACHYON-TL.FC-TL-RUN  configured
# FibrChanl-01
# FibrChanl-01.FC-FCD
  FibrChanl-01.FC-FCD.FC-FCD-KRN        configured
  FibrChanl-01.FC-FCD.FC-FCD-RUN        configured

To verify the current version of fiberchannel drivers, you need to check the software bundle that is installed as well as the version of the drives that is attached to the card. HP provied updated versions of the drivers on the standard patch bundles, and sometimes the version installed on the bundle don't match the current kernel state.

Example:

This is a common example on the Tachyon HP Fibre Channel Tachyon TL/TS/XL2 card, where the software bundle installed is 11.11.09 but the kernel release is 11.11.12.

# /usr/sbin/swlist -l fileset | grep -i fibr
# FC-TACHYON-TL                         B.11.11.09     PCI/HSC FibreChannel;Supptd  HW=A6684A,A6685A,A5158A,A6795A

This is due because the latest HWEnable bundle (December 2006) was installed. A quick look on the kernel (/stand/vmunix) can probe the situation.

Verify the current FC adapter firmware

Always keep your fiber channel cards updated to the latest firmware available. The fiber channel drivers interaction often requires minimum firmware version and many know issues can be prevented installing the latest firmware on the cards.
