Enterprise Server (SUSE SLES) system.
You can obtain the software kit for the driver from the following HP web site
http://h18006.www1.hp.com/storage/saninfrastructure.html.
To install the drivers, you must be familiar with the operating system on which the HBA is to operate,
and have access to standard system documentation. Use the procedures and information in the
following sections:
• Installing the driver kit, page 18
• Using the fibreutils RPM, page 19
FC1142SR and FC1242SR DC 4Gb PCI Express host bus adapters for Linux and Windows installation guide
17
Installing the driver kit
HP recommends that you install the complete driver kit for the FC1142SR and FC1143SR HBAs.
The kit contains the driver and utilities you need to deploy HBAs on Linux.
NOTE: You must install the gcc compiler and the kernel sources or the kernel development
package on your system before installing the driver kit.
To install the complete driver kit, copy the .gz file to your system and enter the following
commands:
#
#
#
#
gunzip hp_qla2300version_info.tar.gz
tar -xvf hp_qla2300version_info.tar
cd hp_qla2300
./INSTALL
See the README file included with the driver kit for more information.
Using the RPM to install drivers
The RPM Package Manager (RPM) is a package management system that facilitates the installation
of Linux software. Using RPM, you can install software in prebuilt bundles called RPM packages. The
driver RPM packages have the driver source code and driver utilities.
NOTE:
This section is provided as a reference for future RPM installations.
Installing the RPM
To install the RPM, copy the RPM package file to your system and enter the following command:
# rpm -ivh package_name.rpm
For example, to install the Linux HBA driver RPM manually, enter the following command:
# rpm -ivh hp_qla2300-version.rpm
Upgrading the RPM
To upgrade the RPM, copy the RPM package file to your system and enter the following command:
# rpm -Uvh package_name.rpm
Uninstalling the RPM
To uninstall the RPM, enter the following command:
# rpm -e package_name
18
Installing the Linux drivers
Using the fibreutils RPM
HP recommends using the fibreutils RPM that is included with the driver kit. It contains useful
utilities for managing fibre-connected storage. To install this RPM manually, enter the following
command:
# rpm -ivh fibreutils-version.rpm
For more information about fibreutils, see the file /opt/hp/hp_fibreutils/README.
Changing driver parameters
To change driver parameters:
1. Run the set_parm script, located in the /opt/hp/src… directory.
2. Reboot the server; otherwise, you may not be able to unload the qla2300 driver if there is a
process or file system using a device connected to the HBA.
Loading and unloading the qla2300 driver manually
By loading the qla2300 driver manually, you can access the devices and unload the driver without
rebooting the system.
To load the qla2300 driver, enter the following command:
# modprobe qla2300
NOTE: HP recommends using the modprobe command to load the driver so that any driver
parameter value specified in the /etc/modules.conf file takes effect.
Alternatively, you can load the driver by entering the following command from the directory that
contains the qla2300.o file:
1. Enter the insmod command. For example:
# insmod qla2300.o
2. If your system has a previous version of the qla driver, rename the old binary included in the
original distribution to ensure that it does not interfere with the new version as follows:
# cd /lib/modules/kernel_release_version/kernel/drivers/addon/qla2300
# mv qla2300.o qla2300_rh.o
3. After renaming the old driver, update the dependency file, then load the new driver using the
modprobe command.
4. To unload the qla2300 driver manually, enter the command as shown in the following example:
# modprobe –r qla2300

Troubleshooting
This chapter provides troubleshooting information that you can use in the event of an HBA problem.
• Troubleshooting checklists, page 22
• Using the Event Viewer, page 23
• Linux driver events, page 23
FC1142SR and FC1242SR DC 4Gb PCI Express host bus adapters for Linux and Windows installation guide
21
Troubleshooting checklists
Three basic types of installation problems can cause HBAs to malfunction: hardware problems,
system configuration problems, and Fibre Channel problems. This section provides checklists to help
you determine why the HBA is not functioning properly.
Hardware checklist
Check the following:
• Are circuit cards installed securely in the system?
• Are cables connected securely to the correct connectors? For example, the optical transmit
connector on the HBA must be connected to the optical receive connector on the device. An
easy way to check for correct seating is to switch the connectors on the HBA or the device, then
reboot your system. If the BIOS is enabled, devices connected to the HBA are displayed on the
screen.
• Is the HBA installed correctly and seated firmly in the PCIe slot?
• Is there interference due to nonstandard PCIe connectors?
• Is the Fast!UTIL data rate setting correct? See ”Adapter Settings” on page 26 for information
about setting the data rate.
System configuration checklist
Check the following:
• Is the motherboard properly connected?
• Did you check the motherboard for proper configuration? All PCI-compliant and PCI-X-compliant
systems automatically detect 32-bit or 64-bit adapters and set the appropriate bus speed (for
example, 33 MHz or 133 MHz).
See the documentation for your computer or contact your computer dealer to determine if the
motherboard requires special configuration.
Fibre Channel checklist
Check the following:
• Did you power up the Fibre Channel devices before powering up the server?
• Are cables connected properly?
• Did you configure the RAID controller using the utilities provided by the manufacturer?
• If the Fibre Channel switch supports zoning, is the switch configured correctly?
22
Troubleshooting
Using the Event Viewer
The SCSIPORT and Storport miniport drivers verify the HBA’s power-on self-test (POST) LED states. If
there is a failure or a suspected failure, an error log entry is written to the Windows event log.
To view the event log:
1. Select Start > Programs > Administrative Tools > Event Viewer, or right-click My
Computer and select Manage.
2. Click Event Viewer in the Computer Management dialog box.
The Event Viewer window appears.
3. Review the miniport driver event codes. See the following web site for information about
interpreting the event codes: http://www.qlogic.com/support/logs/evlogV9xxx_error.asp.
Linux driver events
If the Linux driver detects any fabric or driver events, the information is written to in the
/var/log/messages file. Check this file periodically to review fabric or Linux driver events.

Safety
Electrostatic discharge
To prevent damage to the system, be aware of the precautions you need to follow when setting up
the system or handling parts. A discharge of static electricity from a finger or other conductor may
damage system boards or other static-sensitive devices. This type of damage may reduce the life
expectancy of the device.
Preventing electrostatic damage
To prevent electrostatic damage, observe the following precautions:
• Avoid hand contact by transporting and storing products in static-safe containers.
• Keep electrostatic-sensitive parts in their containers until they arrive at static-free workstations.
• Place parts on a grounded surface before removing them from their containers.
• Avoid touching pins, leads, or circuitry.
• Always be properly grounded when touching a static-sensitive component or assembly (see
”Grounding methods” on page 34).
Grounding methods
There are several methods for grounding. Use one or more of the following methods when handling
or installing electrostatic-sensitive parts:
• Use a wrist strap connected by a ground cord to a grounded workstation or computer chassis.
Wrist straps are flexible straps with a minimum of 1 megohm (±10 percent) resistance in the
ground cords. To provide proper ground, wear the strap snug against the skin.
• Use heel straps, toe straps, or boot straps at standing workstations. Wear the straps on both feet
when standing on conductive floors or dissipating floor mats.
• Use conductive field service tools.
• Use a portable field service kit with a folding static-dissipating work mat.
If you do not have any of the suggested equipment for proper grounding, have an HP authorized
reseller install the part.
NOTE: For more information on static electricity, or assistance with product installation, contact
your HP authorized reseller.
