I have an Emulex FC2243 PCI card attach to a HP DL380. One of the ports is appearing fine in device manager as "Emelux Lightpulse FC 2243......"
The other which has "Emulex Lightpulse HBA -Storeport..." has an exclamation mark beside it.

Both are using the same driver.
They both have FC HP LTO4 drives attached.
Only one can be seen.

When updating the drivers it says it cant find better. It has exactly the same driver version as the other port.
Its one card with two ports but one of the ports is not working.
It wont let me update the firmware as it says its not working.

Uninstall BOTH drivers via device manager and then reboot.
Let it go through driver install again.
