It works very well and optimizes tape storage.

Here is a good article on what it does.

I posted this in your other question. I don't know if it'll work, but it's worth a try:

All three LEDs flashing:
"The firmware for the adapter successfully initialized the HBA, and the HBA is in a ready state. The firmware for the adapter initializes the HBA when the BIOS code for the adapter is loaded. when you press Ctrl+Q, or when the HBA device driver is loaded." from http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/tivihelp/v4r1/index.jsp?topic=%2Fcom.ibm.sspc_v15.doc%2Ffqz0_r_sspc_determining_state_of_hba_ports.html
This indicates that it's waiting to establish a link, and the adapter should be accessible from SANsurfer.

Oops. My bad. SANsurfer has been replaced by QConverge (who comes up with these names?). Documentation is here: http://driverdownloads.qlogic.com/QLogicDriverDownloads_UI/SearchByProduct.aspx?ProductCategory=39&Product=934&Os=26
Scroll down to the bottom for the documentation.

The link I've posted is for 32 bit Red Hat. There's 64 bit Red Hat software and 32 - and 64 - bit SuSe versions as well - I don't knwo what's suitable for Openfiler, I'm afraid.

A loopback test on then off may do what you want. Once you've installed the software, try
# qaucli -pr fc -kl (<hba instance> | <hba wwpn>)
Then pressing enter again to stop the test. See page 6-18 and 6-19 of the CLI guide
