Thank you for selecting the QLA2342/2342L Fibre Channel (FC) HBA. The
QLA2342/2342L HBA is an intelligent, high-performance, DMA bus master host
adapter designed for high-end systems. The intelligence and performance are
derived from the ISP23xx chips, making the QLA2342/2342L HBA a leading-edge
host adapter. The ISP23xx combines a powerful RISC processor, a Fibre Channel
protocol manager (FPM) with one or more 2-Gb Fibre Channel transceivers, and a
peripheral component interconnect-extended (PCI-X) local bus interface in a
single-chip solution. The QLA2342/2342L HBA supports all FC peripherals that
support private loop direct attach (PLDA) and fabric loop attach (FLA). Installation
of the QLA2342/2342L HBA is quick and easy.
1.3
What is Fibre Channel?
Fibre Channel technology is outlined in the SCSI-3 Fibre Channel Protocol
(SCSI-FCP) standard. Fibre Channel is a high-speed data transport technology
used for mass storage and networking. It connects mainframes, super computers,
workstations, storage devices, and servers.
Fibre Channel supports data transfer rates up to 200 MBps half-duplex and
400 MBps full-duplex on copper and optical interfaces. The QLA2342/2342L HBAs
use a multimode optical interface for intermediate distances (less than 500 meters
at the data rate of 1 Gbps; less than 300 meters at the data rate of 2 Gbps).

2.2
Installation in the Computer
Before you install the QLA2342/2342L HBA in your computer, you need the
following:
■
■
A screwdriver (usually a Phillips #1)
Two optical mutimode cables with LC-style duplex connectors
CAUTION! The QLA2342/2342L HBA contains parts that can be damaged by ESD.
Before handling the QLA2342/2342L HBA, use standard methods to
discharge static electricity. Keep the QLA2342/2342L HBA in the
antistatic bag until you are ready to install it. Place the HBA on the bag
when you examine or configure it. Retain the bag for future use.
Perform the following steps to install the QLA2342/2342L HBA in your PC:
1. Check the motherboard and make any configuration changes necessary to
accommodate the QLA2342/2342L HBA.
The QLA2342/2342L HBA is self-configuring; however, some motherboards
require manual configuration. For example, some systems have a PCI Device
Configuration menu in the motherboard setup BIOS where you must enable
HBAs, bus master slots, and IRQ levels. If the motherboard supports triggering,
use level triggering for the QLA2342/2342L HBA. See the documentation
supplied with your computer, or contact your computer dealer to determine if
your motherboard requires configuration.
2. Power down the peripherals, then the computer.
3. Remove the computer cover and save the screws.
4. Choose any PCI bus slot that supports bus mastering. Most motherboards
automatically assign an IRQ level and interrupt line; if your motherboard does
not, you must assign the IRQ level and use interrupt line A for this slot.

Q
2 – QLA2342/2342L
Installation in the Computer
NOTE:
■
Some motherboards have two kinds of PCI bus slots: master and
slave. The QLA2342/2342L HBA must be in a PCI bus master slot.
(Some motherboards have PCI bus master slots that are shared with
onboard devices. QLA2342/2342L HBAs do not work in shared slots.)
■
PCI connectors vary among system HBA manufacturers. The
QLA2342/2342L HBA is a 64-bit PCI device that can function in a 32-bit
PCI slot; the slot conforms to the PCI specification (the rear edge of
the PCI slot is notched). If you try to install the QLA2342/2342L HBA
into a PCI slot that does not conform to the PCI specification, you may
damage the QLA2342/2342L HBA.
■
PCI and PCI-X slots look the same. If the PC contains both PCI and
PCI-X slots, refer to the PC manufacturer’s instructions to determine
the slot type.
■
The QLA2342/2342L HBAs are designed and tested to operate at PCI
bus speeds of up to 133 MHz.
5. Remove the slot cover for the slot in which you will install the QLA2342/2342L
HBA.
6. Place the QLA2342/2342L HBA into the slot. Carefully press the HBA into the
slot until it seats firmly.
7. Secure the QLA2342/2342L HBA to the chassis. Follow the PC manufacturer’s
instructions.
8. Connect the appropriate cable from the devices to the corresponding connector.
9. Carefully reinstall the computer cover. Insert and tighten the computer cover
screws.
10. Power up all external FC devices, then power up the PC and observe the
monitor. The BIOS is disabled by default. Consequently, the devices attached
to the QLA2342/2342L HBA are not identified. For example:

2.2.1
Installation Help
If your system has an IDE hard disk, it may be assigned device number 80, which
is the boot device. If your system does not have an IDE hard disk, a parallel SCSI
host bus adapter (HBA), or a RAID adapter, the first bootable FC hard disk
configured (the one with the lowest ID) is assigned device number 80 and becomes
the boot device. The QLA2342/2342L HBA BIOS must be enabled if the boot device
is connected to the QLA2342/2342L HBA.
If you have a selectable boot BIOS and want to boot to an FC hard disk, set the
motherboard BIOS parameters to None or Not Installed. The ROM BIOS on the
QLA2342/2342L HBA automatically configures the FC peripherals.
Some new system BIOSs support selectable boot, which supersedes the
QLA2342/2342L HBA BIOS selectable boot setting. Select the QLA2342/2342L
HBA FC hard disk in the system BIOS to boot from an FC hard disk attached to the
QLA2342/2342L HBA.
