Applying network policies such as zoning or QoS—or monitoring application performance—is simple because the application is permanently associated with the physical port. I hope they bring it in as an option too, and i will be at VMworld! Justin is a Technical Alliances Architect for Zerto. Justin Paul January 13, at 3: Thank you so much for this post — we would never have resolved the issue otherwise, it saved us wasting a tonne of money on a new EMC SAN. Just an FYI, just installed the adapters and used the the qlogic cli vib to install against VMware host and run through commands:.

HP 3PAR is some modern storage awesomeness! Justin Paul November 4, at Tony Heljula May 25, at 9: Justin Paul January 13, at 3: Justin July 19, at 4: It leverages the same technology and features that make QLogic the market leader in storage networking, including frame-based trunking for additional performance and availability, and Virtual Channels VCs for Quality of Service QoS and isolation. Besides, I do not want to boot from SAN. HCM enables server administers to quickly configure BR-series adapters locally or remotely.

Unmatched Performance With the recent advances in server technology, including Intel Romley processors, servers are now capable of running more workloads than ever.

Thank you so much for this post — we would never have resolved the issue otherwise, it saved us wasting a tonne of money on a new EMC SAN. Saxx November 4, at 7: QLogic HBAs were built from the ground up with virtualization in mind.


To do brocqde run the same commands but substitute p2p in for loop. windiws

QLogic Driver Download – Fibre Channel Adapters – BR – Windows Server R2 (x64)

The link takes me to a generic driver page for the card. Tiago October 8, at 8: Thanks for sharing it. A virtualization-aware SAN infrastructure and server connectivity solution enables organizations to apply network policies at the VM level. Saturday, 29 December You wkndows here: Performance of the applications under load and manageability are often critical concerns for organizations deploying server virtualization.

Its blank, lun 0 is not visible, Stefan.

Two major industry trends aimed at reducing cost and complexity— server consolidation and virtualization—have quickly become the highest priorities for server administrators. However, consolidation and virtualization drive new connectivity requirements that legacy solutions are no longer able to meet, such as streamlined manageability, increased performance, and virtualization awareness.

Ultimately, this means that businesses of all sizes can scale their virtual server deployments and virtualize high-demanding applications with greater confidence, resulting in better server resource utilization and lower capital and operational costs. With server virtualization, multiple applications reside in a physical server and share a physical SAN port. Brocade live CD can be found here: If you just put an ubuntu cd in and boot to like a desktop or something… then you can verify that Ubuntu can see the hba if it does then it should light up the ports on the card and in tern the switch will see them.


Thank you Justin for this awesome solution.

Brocade HBA FC-AL P2P Mode Configuration

HCM also provides notifications of various conditions and problems through a user-defined event filter. If you ever add fiber windods switches you will need to reverse this process and put the card back into p2p mode.

But I will find the correct file and update the post. Justin Paul January 5, at Better yet, I sure hope your partner brings HP Storage into your toolbelt.

What I would do is boot one of the servers with a Linux Live CD and see if it sees anything in there. Clear and very useful! Thanks for the update Duane! Most data centers were designed to meet basic connectivity needs for physical servers, switches, and storage. A simple to use graphical tree view provides fast access to the managed Host Bus Adapters, Converged Network Adapters, ports, and target storage resources.
