1.2
General Description
Thank you for selecting the QLA2310 Fibre Channel (FC) HBA. The QLA2310 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 QLA2310 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
QLA2310 HBA supports all FC peripherals that support private loop direct attach
(PLDA) and fabric loop attach (FLA). Installation of the QLA2310 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 QLA2310 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).
With its increased connectivity and performance, Fibre Channel is the I/O
technology preferred and used by system designers.

Power Distribution
The QLA2310 HBA supplies +5 volts to pin 7 of the HSSDC copper interface to
support an external media interface adapter (MIA), if required. (An MIA converts
electrical bus signals to optical bus signals.)
2.2
Installation in the Computer
Perform the following steps to install the QLA2310 HBA in your PC:
1. Check the motherboard and make any configuration changes necessary to
accommodate the QLA2310 HBA.
The QLA2310 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 QLA2310 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.
2-2
FC2354602-00 A
Q
2 – QLA2310
Installation in 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.
NOTE:
■
Some motherboards have two kinds of PCI bus slots: master and
slave. The QLA2310 HBA must be in a PCI bus master slot. (Some
motherboards have PCI bus master slots that are shared with onboard
devices. QLA2310 HBAs do not work in shared slots.)
■
PCI connectors vary among system board manufacturers. The
QLA2310 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 QLA2310 HBA into a PCI
slot that does not conform to the PCI specification, you may damage
the QLA2310 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 QLA2310 HBAs are designed and tested to operate at PCI-X bus
speeds up to 66 MHz.
5. Remove the slot cover for the slot in which you will install the QLA2310 HBA.
6. Place the QLA2310 HBA into the slot. Carefully press the HBA into the slot until
it seats firmly.
7. Secure the QLA2310 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 QLA2310 HBA are not identified. For example:

the Fast!UTIL BIOS utility. See the associated readme.txt file for detailed
instructions.
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 QLA2310 HBA BIOS must be enabled if the boot device is
connected to the QLA2310 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
QLA2310 HBA automatically configures the FC peripherals.
Some new system BIOSs support selectable boot, which supersedes the QLA2310
HBA BIOS selectable boot setting. Select the QLA2310 HBA FC hard disk in the
system BIOS to boot from an FC hard disk attached to the QLA2310 HBA.

Troubleshooting
3.1
Problems After Installation
There are three basic types of installation problems that can cause your QLA2310
HBA to function incorrectly: hardware problems, system configuration problems,
and Fibre Channel problems. The following section provides itemized checklists to
help you determine why your QLA2310 HBA is not functioning.
3.2
Hardware Problem Checklist
■
Are all of the circuit cards installed securely in the system?
■
Are all of the cables securely connected to the correct connectors? Be sure that
the FC cables that attach from the QLA2310 HBA connectors to the device are
connected correctly. For example, the optical transmit connector on the QLA2310
HBA must be connected to the optical receive connector on the device. Some
connectors require a firm push to ensure proper seating. An easy way to check
for correct seating is to switch the connectors on either the QLA2310 HBA or the
device, then restart your system. If the BIOS is enabled, devices attached to the
QLA2310 HBA are displayed on the screen.
■
Is the QLA2310 HBA installed correctly in the PCI slot? Is it seated firmly in the
slot? 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.
■
Check for interference due to nonstandard PCI connectors.
■
Is the Fast!UTIL data rate setting correct? See the appropriate readme.txt file
for information about setting the data rate.
■
Are all external peripherals properly powered up? See the appropriate readme.txt
file for information about displaying attached devices.
