SAN-fiber installation question

I have tried replacing the fiber card and the cable, but cannot get it connected to the fiber switch.

There are no green lights.  I think I accidentally disconnected another server, when I plugged the cables back in the lights will not come back on.

Any ideas?  Does something needs to be manually started back up or reinitialized?

Thanks,

never disconnect a fiber optic cable by puliing the cable and it should be with grasping the connector.
your fiber cable might have got damaged.

I pulled the plug correctly and plugged it back and now cannot see the lights.  After that I tried 2 other cables which I am sure one is working fine (right out of the box), but still cannot get the green lights.  Checked the fiber switch and the port is enabled.

I do not knot what to do.  What needs to be properly configured in order to establish a connection.  When I type luxadm -e port I want all HBAs to be connected.

Thanks...

You will have to reboot the server to see them again.  The device may have reverted to Arbitrated Loop and a reboot is needed to reset it to switched fabric mode.
