Installing the switch
• Other servers in the SAN.
Install the HP StorageWorks 8/20q Fibre Channel Switch as
follows:
IMPORTANT: Do not configure the switch at this time. The HP
StorageWorks Simple SAN Connection Manager software will
prompt you to set the switch IP address, administrator password,
and default zoning when you first start that software.
1. Mount the switch on a flat surface or in a rack:
• Place the switch on a flat surface and stack. Attach the four
adhesive rubber feet to the bottom of the switch. Or,
• Mount the switch in a 19” EIA rack following the steps in the
HP StorageWorks 8/20q Switch Rack-Mount Kit quick start
installation instructions.
6. Connect the FC cables between the installed transceivers and
their corresponding devices and switches. Each port
auto-negotiates the proper port type with the connected device
or switch.
2. Install each SFP transceiver by inserting the transceiver into any
of the active switch ports and pressing gently until it snaps in
place. The transceiver will fit only one way. If the transceiver
does not install under gentle pressure, flip it over and try again.
Installing the HBAs
Install an HBA on each server (Figure 2). For additional information,
see the instructions in the HP StorageWorks 81Q PCI-e FC HBA
quick start installation instructions.
NOTE: An HP Small Form-factor Pluggable (SFP) transceiver is
required for each switch port that will be connected to a device or
another switch. Only HP SFPs are supported for use in the switch.
On a new HP StorageWorks 8/20q Fibre Channel Switch, ports
0–7 are active. The switch supports 2 Gb, 4 Gb, and 8 Gb
transmission with HP 8 Gb fiber optic transceivers.
3. Apply power to the switch by attaching the AC power cord to the
receptacle on the back of the switch and to the power source.
The switch runs its self tests and begins normal operation—this

7. The message, “Your installation is complete,” is displayed
(Figure 9). Remove the HP software CD and then click Reboot.
Follow these steps to install the required software on all servers
running Linux.
1. Insert the installation CD into the CD-ROM drive of the server.
The installation CD should mount automatically in one of the
following locations:
/media/cdrom/
/mnt/cdrom/
/media/cdrecorder/
Page 5
If the installation CD is not mounted automatically, issue the
following commands to mount the CD:
location, issue the following command as shown in the example
below:
# mkdir -p /mnt/cdrom
# mount /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom
# modinfo qla2xxx
Filename: /lib/modules/ 2.6.18-8.ELsmp/kernel/drivers/
scsi/qla2xxx/qla2xxx.ko
Version: 8.02.03
2. Change the directory to the linux directory. For example, if the
installation CD is mounted in /mnt/cdrom, issue the command:
6. To verify that the driver is loaded, issue the following command
as shown in the example below:
# cd /mnt/cdrom/linux/
IMPORTANT: Under specific distributions, such as Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 5 (RHEL 5), the installation CD is auto-mounted
using the following CD label:
# lsmod | grep qla2xxx
qla2xxx_conf
qla2xxx
scsi_mod
# /media/HpInstall6.7/
If this occurs, the CD may get mounted with the no execution
flag, causing the installation script to fail. Installation failure may be
indicated by the following error message:
303752
982688
445298
1
0
qla2xxx
7. To verify that the correct driver is loaded, issue the following
command as shown in the example below:
# ./install_smb.sh
# cat /proc/scsi/qla2xxx/* | grep "Driver version"
bash: ./install_smb.sh: /bin/sh: bad interpreter:
Permission denied
Firmware version: 4.02.01 IPX
Driver version: 8.02.03-fo
The workaround is to manually mount the installation CD. For
example, if the CD was auto-mounted in /media/HpInstall6.7,
issue these commands to unmount and then re-mount the CD:
Congratulations! You have successfully installed your 8Gb Simple
SAN Connection Kit hardware and HP StorageWorks Simple SAN
Connection Manager software.
# unmount /media/HpInstall6.7
# mkdir -p /mnt/cdrom
# mount /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom
If the unmount command fails with a busy warning, make sure you
close all applications and consoles that could be using the CD
media and try again.

Connection Manager
3. Run the install_smb.sh script as follows:
# ./install_smb.sh
To configure your storage system, use the HP StorageWorks Simple
SAN Connection Manager software. This software is installed on
your server if you selected either the HP EVA Management or HP
MSA Management installation on the software CD.
This will install the following components:
• QLogic FC HBA driver
• HP Array Configuration Utility
• QLogic SANsurfer agent–QLRemote (if possible, the
installation program will also start the SANsurfer agent,
QLRemote)
1. To launch the software, either:
• Click Start, point to All Programs > Hewlett-Packard > HP
StorageWorks Simple SAN Connection Manager and then
click HP StorageWorks Simple SAN Connection Manager, or,
4. If the following message appears at the end of the installation,
you must restart the computer:
• Double-click the desktop shortcut:
New driver and qlremote installed but not active.
For new driver and qlremote to be active either:
Reboot the system (Mandatory in case of Boot from
SAN)
or
Stop all the applications using QLogic driver.
Unload QLogic driver by executing following
command:
# modprobe -r qla2XXX (ex. qla2300, qla2400)
Reload new driver by executing following command:
# modprobe -v qla2xxx
Start qlremote as follows:
# /etc/init.d/qlremote start
Rebooting the system will automatically load new
driver and start qlremote.
2. If this is a new, uninitialized EVA storage subsystem, HP
StorageWorks Simple SAN Connection Manager prompts you to
enter an array name and initialize the subsystem (Figure 11).
(This step is not necessary for MSA storage.)
If the EVA storage is already initialized, the Initialize an EVA
Storage Subsystem dialog box does not appear.
5. Verify that the installation is complete by checking the FC HBA
driver version. To ensure that the driver is installed in the correct
