Re: virtual HBAs only showing port address set A in fabric

Jump to solution


I plan on adding the device aliases through dcnm. Is there anything about this process that would be disruptive to my current prod fabric configuration? Since I've never had to do this before, I need to ask.

Thanks in advance!

nothing to worry, just make sure to commit changes when you are done otherwise you leave CFS locked.

Hi

Added, and committed the initiator, however, I still do not see it in the host panel. Checked both the running config on dcnm and the switch itself and the new initiators show there. Any thoughts? Is there a step I am missing?

Thanks!

ok, since it's not logged-in you are not going to see it in the list of available host ..so simply add the WWN manually when you add member to a zone.

OK, this is driving me nuts. I have done everything manually, it looks good. The windows folks keep pointing to my zones since failover is still not working.

Can someone tell me how the zones should look for windows hyper-v. My first group of zones is:

Individual zones(both A set, B set(failover) that are separate and look like this

VSAN 100 zones

virtual host ip

address set A HBA (2 in each VSAN)

virtual host ip

address set B HBA (2 each VSAN)

Per Microsoft: also include one zone per vsan with

All address set A/B in vsan

physical host HBAs for both host

VSAN 200 (same as 100)

Please tell me what should be in these zones for failover to work. I really appreciate it.

Below is what I usually do. I am running Brocade switches and I do most of the things through command line and it has been some time since I worked on Cisco switches so I don't exactly remember the commands but you should get the idea. Also, I borrowed your WWNs (sorry about that).

Assumption is that SPA0 & SPB1 connect to one fabric and SPA1 & SPB0 connect to second fabric. You want to zone all vHBAs to all the SP ports in that fabric as it is not under your control which vHBA Hyper-V will bring online.

C003FF7748AD0002---<Servername1_vHBA2>
C003FF7748AD0003---<Servername1_vHBA3>

VNX_SPA0, VNX_SPA1, VNX_SPB0, VNX_SPB1

<Servername1_vHBA0>_VNX_SPA0
<Servername1_vHBA0>_VNX_SPB1

<Servername1_vHBA1>_VNX_SPA0
<Servername1_vHBA1>_VNX_SPB1

<Servername1_vHBA2>_VNX_SPA0
<Servername1_vHBA2>_VNX_SPB1

<Servername1_vHBA3>_VNX_SPA0
<Servername1_vHBA3>_VNX_SPB1


Zones_FabricB

<Servername1_vHBA0>_VNX_SPA1
<Servername1_vHBA0>_VNX_SPB0

<Servername1_vHBA1>_VNX_SPA1
<Servername1_vHBA1>_VNX_SPB0

<Servername1_vHBA2>_VNX_SPA1
<Servername1_vHBA2>_VNX_SPB0

<Servername1_vHBA3>_VNX_SPA1
<Servername1_vHBA3>_VNX_SPB0

When you mention failover is failing, do you mean Live Migration?

Also, you will have to manually register all paths on VNX.

If servers still cannot see paths make sure to check all paths in storage group---host tab---advanced (when you go in engineering mode).

Let us know how it goes
