The system was in a hang status and not accepting ssh connection. Rebooting it through the console and it hung again after a few days. This issue repeated two times.


Contact the hardware vendor to check the status of the HBA adapter and the link. The issue was fixed after replacing the target HBA adapter.


This is a hardware issue. The logs were showing an issue related to the HBA; the link is flapping too much and it failed to access the storage/disks “FLOGI”.
