I have an RA4100 array hooked up to a Brocade 3200 switch that I am trying to learn how to configure zoning. If I directly hook up my Proliant ML350 server using the HP supported Storageworks PCI-X HBA to the RA4100 via an SC fibre cable, I am able to see the RA4100 when using the SmartStart CD. I was able to successfully create a LUN and access it in Windows.
However, if I try to connect both the ML350 HBA and the RA4100 to the Brocade switch, when I run the SmartStart CD, it does not see the RA4100 in the ML350 (perhaps it doesn't load the HBA driver because it doesn't see the RA4100 since it is hooked up to a switch?). In the Brocade, I can see the ports green light change from the right to the left, and the PortStats screen goes from completely blank to showing frames transmitted, so I know there is a physical connection for both the ML350 and the RA4100 according to the switch.
Since I tried setting up zoning, but couldn't see the RA4100 in SmartStart, I tried clearing out the config, as I read if you do this, it is wide open and everything can see everything. The RA4100 still won't appear in SmartStart.
Any suggestions on what to try to get the RA4100 to be recognized by the switch and/or SmartStart?
