I have 4 SLES 10 SP 3 systems that I need connected to EMC cx500 SAN. These machines used to run Netware and were connected to same SAN and these systems are still viewable in the navisphere manager but indicates host is unreachable. I believe I require PowerPath for Linux version 5.5 on all hosts. Does this seem like the correct software?

Yes you need the powerpath if you want to do multipathing and also the naviagent software.

If you have multi homed network interfaces a trick I picked up is that in the root of the server have a file called AgentId.txt this should have two lines in it (this will bind the naviagent to the correct interface)

Hostname
Ip Address

Also there will be a file in /var/log/HostIdFile.txt which get's created the first time naviagent is started so if you want to change anything then delete the HostIdFile.txt and restart the naviagent.

I have the following installed on my servers

EMCpower.LINUX.x86_64
naviagentcli.noarch

Hope this helps.

My apologies for not replying to comments. I am a new member and thought I had submitted a reply sooner. This comment was concise and helpful in that it led me to what I now think is my issue. I am certain my zoning and other fiber issue are correct but believe the Navispheer manager is a but confused as these systems were once connected to CX500 as Netware machines with same IP. Now I am thinking that the manager will not accept a new system that looks so much like the old Netware ones.

I have seen information outlining how to remove the old unreachable systems but I am too timid to to go into expert mode in manager to complete this task. I plan to try changing IP of new hosts to see if Manager will pick up hosts.
