HARD_ADDRESS_MODE
Boolean parameter: 0 = not selected, 1 = selected. Default is
HARD_ADDRESS_MODE = 0;
If HARD_ADDRESS_MODE is not selected (the default), whenever devices are
discovered/rediscovered (such as after cable disconnect/connect or drive
removal/insertion) the World Wide Port Name and the World Wide Node Name of the
device are compared to verify that the same device is present as was previously there.
If HARD_ADDRESS_MODE is selected, no checking is performed to verify that a
device discovered at one Fibre Channel address is the same as the one previously
found there. HARD_ADDRESS_MODE is used for certain dual−channel RAID arrays
where you do not have the option of retaining the World Wide Port Name and the World
Wide Node Name of the controller when replacing the controller. Using it for any other
situation may cause I/O to be sent to the new device when it shouldn't be.

Emulex Drivers, Software and Manuals
LINK_DOWN_TOUT
Minimum value = 0, maximum value = 65536 (decimal). Default = 60;
This parameter specifies the maximum time, in seconds, for a link to remain down prior
to beginning to return I/O requests in error. Use a value of zero to never timeout I/O
requests when the link is down. Events such as cable disconnects can cause the link to
be down indefinitely. Events such as drive removal/insertion only cause the link to be
down only briefly. The default value should be satisfactory for most cases.
/LUN
Boolean parameter: 0 = off, 1 = on. Default is /LUN=0;
If this parameter is turned off (default), access is restricted to LUN 0 of any multi−LUN
device. When this parameter is turned on, multi−LUN support for the Emulex
LightPulse PCI Fibre Channel Adapter driver is activated. See MAX_LUN below.
MAX_LUN
Minimum value = 1, maximum value = 256 (decimal). Default = 8;
MAX_LUN determines the number of LUNs supported per device. This is important for
RAID arrays. This value is required if /LUN is set to 1 (turned on). The value is
dependent on the array configuration.
MAX_QDEPTH
Minimum value = 1, maximum value = 64 (decimal). Default = 16;
MAX_QDEPTH controls the number of commands that can be issued at one time to
each LUN before automatic throttling occurs. The default value should be satisfactory
for most cases.
4
Emulex Drivers, Software and Manuals
NUMBDES
Minimum value = 2000, maximum value = 5000 (decimal). Default = 4000;
This parameter allows resources to be tuned for the number of devices. Each BDE
resource consumes 12 bytes of memory. The default value should be satisfactory for
most cases.
NUMDEVICES
Minimum value = 0, maximum value = 1000 (decimal). Default = 400;
NUMDEVICES specifies the maximum number of target devices that might be
connected to the fabric. The default value should be satisfactory for most cases.
NOTE: To allow for loop operations, 126 additional devices are always enabled.
N_TIMEOUT
Minimum value = 0, maximum value = 300 (decimal). Default = 20;
Node timeout controls a "second chance" for a "disappearing" device. After events such
as cable disconnect/reconnect or drive removal/insertion, the driver checks what
devices it has found. If that list does not include a previously found device, and this
value is not 0, the driver waits the specified number of seconds and then restarts the
checking. If the device is found on the second try, then the device is considered to be
available; if it is still not found, the driver will reject any further attempts to access it.
The default value should be satisfactory for most cases. CLARiiON RAID arrays may
require setting the value to 90.
RSCNADISC
Boolean parameter: 0 = not selected, 1 = selected. Default is RSCNADISC=1;
RSCNADISC is used in link error recovery situations. When set to 1 (default), the
system uses ADISC when possible to rediscover a node. If set to 0, only PLOGI is
used.
5
Emulex Drivers, Software and Manuals
RSCNDELAY
Minimum value = 0, maximum value = 60 (decimal). Default = 0;
RSCNDELAY specifies the time, in seconds, to delay a query to the Fibre Channel
Name Server after a State Change Notification. The default value should be
satisfactory for most cases.
RSCNZONE
Boolean parameter: 0 = not selected, 1 = selected. Default is RSCNZONE=1;
If set to 1 (default), always query the Fibre Channel Name Server after a State Change
Notification. If set to 0, query only when necessary.
SCANDOWN
Boolean parameter: 0 assigns to each device in the loop a fixed SCSI ID in the range of
0 to 125. 1 assigns to each device in the loop a fixed SCSI ID in the range of 125 to 0.
This parameter applies ONLY to private loop configurations.
Scan Direction for Loop Auto Binding:
When SCANDOWN=0, this option assigns to each device in the loop a fixed
SCSI ID in the range 0 to 125, in increasing order depending on the AL_PA of
the device. For instance, the device at AL_PA 1 will always have the SCSI ID
x01, and the device at AL_PA xEF will always have the SCSI ID 125. This is
the default, and matches the behavior of earlier drivers.
When SCANDOWN=1, this option assigns to each device in the loop a fixed
SCSI ID in the range 125 to 0 , in decreasing order depending on the AL_PA of
the device. For instance, the device at AL_PA xEF will always have the SCSI
ID 0, and the device at AL_PA x01 will always have the SCSI ID 125.
6
Emulex Drivers, Software and Manuals
DELAY_TOUT
Minimum value = 0, maximum value = 500 (decimal). Default = 0;
This parameter specifies a delay period to extend the timeout value of operations (such
as read or write to a target device). This allows, for instance, an adjustment in timeouts
when large fabrics or WAN−connected fabrics may add delays to normal response
times. The default value is appropriate for most environments, and care should be used
in choosing any non−zero value.
LINK_SPEED
Minimum value = 0, maximum value = 2. Default = 0;
This parameter controls the setting of the Fibre Channel link speed in HBAs capable of
2 Gbps link speeds. The value 0 selects auto−negotiate; the HBA attempts to match
the link speed of the other devices on the link. The value 1 forces the HBA to use 1
Gbps link speed. The value 2 forces the HBA to use 2 Gbps link speed. The default
value of 0 is appropriate for most environments.
TOPOLOGY
Accepted values = 0, 1, 2, or 3. Default = 2;
Topology specifies the type of link to be supported.
0 to specify loop topology,
1 to specify point−to−point topology (including switched fabric),
2 to attempt to use loop first, then point−to−point if loop is not found,
3 to attempt to point−to−point first, then loop if point−to−point is not found.
NOTE: If the actual setup is private loop using a hub product (for example, Emulex
LH5000) and topology option 3 is used to attempt point−to−point first with fail−over to
loop, be sure that the AutoLIP feature (LIP 57 on insert) is enabled.
USEADISC
Boolean parameter: 0 = not selected, 1 = selected. Default is USEADISC=0;.
USEADISC is used in link error recovery situations (link up events). If set to 0 (default),
only PLOGI is used. If set to 1, uses ADISC when possible to rediscover a node.

Special Command Line Parameters
The command line parameters on this page are parsed separately from the rest of
the command line parameters. Install−time help information is not available for
them.
These parameters are used to control whether certain Fibre Channel devices are
included or excluded from the list of devices an adapter recognizes for valid
connections. The following descriptions represent hex strings by "xxx...", where
each x represents a hex digit.
ACCEPTWWNN −
This parameter configures the driver to recognize a specific device, using the
World Wide Node Name for the device as the key to identifying the device. The
World Wide Node Name is typically based on the IEEE identification of a
specific device. The syntax is
ACCEPTWWNN=xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
