Issue with SPA initiators showing not logged in

vmich used Ask the Experts™
We have a VNX 5300 which had an issue with one of the SPS. Now that the SPS for SPA has been replaced, we are showing all of the initiators to be yellow and are stating that they are not logged in.
Do we need to do a reboot of SPA to get these to login or is there something that has to be done now to get these to login again so that we have redundancy with both SPA and SPB initiators be logged in?

That's odd, if you have two SPSs the controller shouldn't have shut down since each SPS supplies power to both controllers. I think you will have to go to the hosts and scan the storage from them again to get them to login.


well the host are showing up in unisphere because SPB is connected but when I deregister and then try to register SPA, it says its connected but it never logs in.
