2 Fibre Channel is a key technology for storage
Fibre Channel is a serial communications technology designed to transfer large amounts of data among
a variety of hardware systems over long distances. It is a key technology for applications that require
shared, high bandwidth access to storage.
Fibre Channel provides a logical, point-to-point,
serial channel for the transfer of data between a
buffer at a source device and a buffer at a
destination device. It moves buffer contents from
one port to another, without regard to the format
or meaning of the data so different upper level
protocols are able to run over Fibre Channel
hardware.
The Fibre Channel architecture is structured as a
hierarchical set of protocol layers. Defined within
these layers are rules for signal interfaces, serial
encoding and decoding, error control, frame
format and communications protocols.

3 Installing and updating drivers
Before installing your Celerity adapter, you must configure your system to recognize and use it by
installing drivers for your operating system.
Configure your system to recognize and use your
Celerity adapter by
•
•
installing drivers for your operating system
updating the adapter firmware if necessary (refer
to Updating hardware flash on page 24)
Note
If you already have one or more Celerity
adapters installed and you are installing
additional adapter(s), you do not need to
perform any of these procedures unless you
are updating a previously installed driver.
ATTO Celerity adapters ship with the latest
firmware installed.
The Celerity FC Installation CD shipped with
your adapter contains the latest driver.
The Installation CD automatically starts when
inserted in the system CD-ROM drive. Navigate
the easy-to-use HTML-based menu to find the
driver that you want to install.
If the CD does not automatically start, open the
CD and click on autorun.bat.
Specialized configurations
Some specialized applications may benefit from
modification of adapter settings. The ATTO
Utilities Installation and Operation Manual
provides detailed information on using ATTO
Technology configuration utilities found on the
ATTO Utilities CD or downloaded from the
ATTO website. For best performance, use the
most recent device driver and flash version.
Verify the version based on your operating
system.
Windows: Use the ATTO Configuration Tool
from the ATTO Utilities CD, or download it from
www.attotech.com, or view the adapter boot
string during system boot or look in the Device
Manager.
Note
Windows NT is only supported with Celerity
driver version 1.31 or earlier. If you are using
Windows NT, contact your service
representative.
Mac OS X: Use the ATTO Configuration Tool on
the ATTO Utilities CD, or download it from
www.attotech.com, or use the Apple System
Profiler.
Linux: Use the ATTO Configuration Tool on the
ATTO Utilities CD, or download it from
www.attotech.com, or to find the driver version,
examine /proc/scsi/celerityfc/X, where X is the
adapter’s host number.
Windows 2000/XP/Server 2003/Vista
Five procedures are described below. Review
each thoroughly to ensure that you are using the
one that best fits your needs. If you have one or
more Celerity FC adapters installed in your
system and you are installing additional
adapter(s), you do not need to perform any of
these procedures unless you are updating a
previously installed driver.
The Celerity FC Installation Disk can be the
Installation CD shipped with your adapter, a
folder containing the latest downloaded and
expanded driver, or a Celerity FC installation
floppy disk.

Upgrading an existing Celerity FC driver
1
Log on to Windows as the System
Administrator.
2
Insert your Celerity FC Installation Disk and run
autorun.bat
3
In Windows Drivers, select your operating
system version.
4
Click on Install Driver.
Adding a Celerity FC adapter to an
existing installation
Note
Complete this installation procedure before
attaching any devices to the adapter.
1
Complete the steps in Updating hardware flash
on page 24 to pre-install the driver.
2
Close Windows and turn off power to your PC
when Setup prompts you to do so.
3
Install your new Celerity FC adapter into an
available PCI expansion slot.
a. If the Celerity FC adapter is replacing
another adapter in the system, disconnect
the FC cables from the adapter and
remove the adapter from the system, or
move the Celerity FC adapter to the PCI
slot that the previous adapter occupied.
b. Attach the appropriate FC cables to the
Celerity FC adapter.
4
Close the computer chassis
5
Turn on the power and restart Windows.
6
During the boot process, Windows detects your
Celerity FC adapter and the Found New
Hardware Wizard is displayed.
Follow the directions in the Found New
Hardware Wizard, selecting the default
settings for each adapter channel.
7
Insert the Celerity FC Installation disk when
asked to do so.
8
When adapter installation is complete, the
Found New Hardware Wizard displays an
ATTO Phantom Device for each channel. Use
the wizard default settings to complete the
installation.
Creating a boot disk
Note
The procedure described below does not
apply to Windows Server 2003 for Itanium
systems because the Celerity FC driver does
not support boot functionality on Itanium
systems.
1

Windows installation procedure.
Note
When Windows begins copying files to your
hard disk, a display prompts you to insert the
Celerity FC installation disk and any other
vendor-supplied disks you used during
custom installation. This is normal. The first
time you inserted the disks, Windows loads
the drivers into memory; the second time you
insert the disk(s), Windows copies the driver
to your hard disk.

Power down the computer and unplug the
computer from all power sources.
Fibre Channel address
Celerity FC adapters are configured with a unique
address designated by the Institute of Electrical
and Electronic Engineers. The WorldWide Port
Name (WWN) and Node Name are the two
components of the address assigned to Fibre
Channel products. This address, stored in flash
memory, allows the system to recognize the
Celerity host adapter as a unique part of your
configuration. The address is clearly marked on
the back of the board for easy identification.
Please keep a reference copy of the number in a
safe place or write in the space provided on this
page.
Celerity FC host adapter WWNs are assigned for
each channel. The WWN listed on your host
adapter is assigned to the first channel (0).
Sequential WWNs apply for additional channels.

Open the case.
4
Install the Celerity FC host adapter in any open
PCI, PCI-X or PCI Express expansion slot. If
you have questions about how to install an
expansion card in your system, consult your
computer’s documentation.
Drawings of Celerity brackets begin on page 18
and drawings of boards begin on page 20.
Note
The Celerity FC-41XS, and FC-42XS host
adapters only fit in 3.3V slots.
The Celerity FC-42ES, FC-41ES, FC-41EN
and FC-42EN fit into x4, x8, or x16 mechanical
PCI Express slots.
If you have trouble seating your adapter in a 32bit PCI bus computer, check to make sure the
connector can accommodate 64-bit host
adapters.

6 Troubleshooting
This chapter contains solutions for the most common problems you might encounter. If you need
additional assistance, please refer to the ATTO Technology website, www.attotech.com, or contact an
authorized ATTO Technology representative.
General suggestions
•
Check each cable connection on every device.
•
Verify all cables are in proper working condition.
Loose or broken cables are often the cause of
errors or problems.
•
Check that Fibre Channel devices are plugged
into an AC outlet and are turned on before you
add power to your computer.
Mac OS X
Note
The Celerity FC supports Mac OS X versions
10.3 and later.
1
Open the ATTO Configuration Tool from the
ATTO Utilities CD or download from the ATTO
website. Refer to the ATTO Utilities Installation
and Operation Manual for additional

available.
Note
If the Celerity adapter is properly seated and
devices are still not accessible, contact an
authorized ATTO representative.
Windows 2000/XP/Server 2003/Vista
•
If the card has been recently re-flashed, the new
Windows driver must be installed. Follow the
procedure in Installing and updating drivers on
page 13.
•
All of the external devices connected to the host
adapter should be identified. If they do not
appear in the Device Manager, the external
devices or connection may not be working
properly.
•
For Intel-based PCs, check the computer CMOS
setup and verify that the PCI slots are configured
correctly.
•
Procedures vary greatly: refer to the manual
supplied with your system or call the computer
supplier for configuration assistance.
•
Windows 2000/XP/Server 2003/Vista are Plugn-Play operating systems: be sure your
computer’s BIOS is set accordingly.
•
If these do not solve the problem, re-flash the
host adapter and re-install the Windows
2000/XP/Server 2003/Vista driver. See
Installing and updating drivers on page 13.
