Netware 6.5 Server only see drives on LUN 0

hi,

on our Netware Servers we are only able to see drives with LUN 0.

We are running Netware 6.5 SP7 on Intel Compute Module MFS5000SI in a Intel Modular Server. This system has an integrated SAN on which we have created 8 virtual drives each with an different LUN.

On the Netware Servers we use LSIMPTNW, Version 05.03.01.00 from 08/20/2008. We load that driver in the startup.ncf by the following line:
LSIMPTNW.HAM Slot=10 /Lun

Have I missed something?

Thanks

This may be yor issue:

Edit C:\nwserver\startup.ncf and add the following switch to the QLogic Driver load line: /MAXLUNS=n

If the link doesn't work, go to http://www.novell.com/support/microsites/microsite.do and do a search for document ID 3009172

Thanks for the tip...but it still won`t help :(

The /maxluns=n option is not supported by the LsiMptNw.ham.

Any other ideas?

No - sorry. I'm a storage boffin, not a Novell one...  :-(

Having said that, I'd be surprised if the issue isn't resolved with a similar switch. For reasons best known to themselves, Red Hat did the same thing with Emulex drivers in RHEL 4. So you attached your shiny new Red Hat box to a SAN and it would only see one LUN. The fix was/is a similar switch to that called out in the KB article.

ok,

as anybody is interested...the driver just doesn`t support it. :( The only option (when you like to use that HW combination) is to migrate to an Netware OES with an Linux Kernel.

Thank`s
