This document (7005436) is provided subject to the disclaimer at the end of this document.
SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10 Service Pack 3
This is an environment with SAN/Storage, with (Brocade) Switch and Qlogic QLE2562 HBAs in the servers.
A SPEED of 8GB/s is configured on the HBA and on the Switch.
When the link gets lost through a cable unplug or Switch reboot, the link does not come back after respectively
cable replugging, or reboot of the Switch.
This was a bug in the qlogic firmware.
A fix is already available. Do the following to fix the issue:
- Download and install the latest qlogic-firmware released in March, 2010.
- Rebuild the initrd (using mkinitrd)
- Reboot the system
- Verify that the new firmware is loaded (fw=5.03.01 or higher) by using for instance
ISP2532: PCIe (5.0GT/s x4) @ 0000:04:00.0 hdma+, host#=3, fw=5.03.01 (d5)
