Installation
Recording Reference Numbers
Each HBA ships with a unique address identifier that is stored in flash memory.
Fibre Channel industry standards issue two unique identifiers: WorldWide Port
Name (WWPN) and Node Name (NN), each of which is derived from the HBA’s
IEEE address. Combined, the WWPN and NN create the WorldWide Name
(WWN) which is an 8-byte field that uniquely identifies an HBA on a FC circuit.
The WWN address and serial number are clearly marked on the HBA. Record the
addresses on the lines below for future reference.
Note: The WWN is a static identifier that cannot be changed.
IEEE address: __________________________________________________
Serial number: __________________________________________________

Installation
Installing the HBA into a Computer
Use the following procedure for installing the HBA into a computer.
Caution: Be sure to observe the ESD precautions described on page 59 for
this procedure.
1. Make sure the computer is powered off.
2. Remove the screws on the computer cover, and then remove the cover.
3. Wearing a static wrist strap, remove the blank panel from an empty 64-bit
PCI-X bus slot.
Compare the removed panel to the bracket on the HBA. Follow steps 4–7 to
change the bracket if the brackets are different sizes.
Note: The HBAs come with a standard PCI bracket installed. The low-profile mounting
bracket is shorter than the standard bracket; approximately 7.9 cm (3.11 in.)
compared to 12.06 cm (4.75 in.) long.
4. Remove the mounting bracket screws from the top of the HBA.
5. Remove the bracket and store it for future use.
6. Align the new mounting bracket tabs with the holes in the HBA.
Note: Be careful not to push the bracket past the transceiver housing's grounding
tabs.
7. Replace the screws that attach the HBA to the bracket.
8. Insert the HBA into the empty PCI-X bus slot; press firmly until it is seated
securely.
9. Secure the HBA mounting bracket to the computer panel with the panel
screws.
10. Replace the computer cover and secure it using the previously removed
screws.

Using The Event Viewer
The Windows SCSI driver verifies the condition of the HBA POST. If there is a
failure or a suspected failure, an error log entry is issued to the Windows Event
log.
Following is the procedure for viewing the event log.
From the Main menu:
1. Double-click or choose the Administrative Tools program group.
2. Double-click or choose the Event Viewer.
3. Specify LPXNDS.
Note: You can find the source name in the SCSI device’s Disk Manager.
4. Double-click any event with the source name.
5. Change the data view from Bytes (default) to Words.
6. Examine the entry at offset 0x10: if the low byte = En, match the low byte
with the error found in Table 5 on page 32, SCSI Port Error Log. Table 6 on
page 34, and Table 7 on page 35 list CmdStat values and Parameter error
values.

Troubleshooting
Windows Miniport Event Log Codes
The Windows Miniport driver logs events and errors in the Windows Event log.
Serious errors are always logged. Informational events are only logged if the
registry parameter LogError=1 is used.
All Miniport logged events are issued with an Event ID of 11 (INTERNAL
ADAPTER ERROR) but do not necessarily indicate an HBA error occurred. Byte
offset 0x10 of the event is the driver event code. Byte offsets 0x11 to 0x13 contain
event-specific information.

Diagnostic and Configuration Utilities
Using LightPulse Utility
The LightPulse Utility (LpUtilNt) is an HBA utility that lets you:
■
View HBA parameters
■
Modify driver parameters in the Windows registry
The Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) setup file provided in the software
kit sets these parameters. The Fibre Channel setup file that comes with the
platform kit, modifies these parameters. The resulting parameter settings provide
the optimal setting for your configurations.
Note the following:
■
You must install and connect the SCSI Miniport driver to at least one drive
before LightPulse Utilitycan operate properly. You can alternately set the
registry parameter Simulate Device=1.
■
LightPulse Utility does not load automatically on Windows Server 2003
systems. HP recommends that you install the LightPulse utility after installing
the HBA drivers as described in the section Installing the LightPulse Utility
on page 27.
View HBA Parameters
From the LightPulse Utility Main menu screen:
1. Choose an HBA.
2. On the menu bar, click on an HBA or pull down the category list.
3. Choose an option to view HBA parameters.

Diagnostic and Configuration Utilities
Modify Diagnostic Driver Parameters in the Windows Registry
This screen provides information about device driver parameters that are
maintained in the Windows registry and allows you to modify those values.
Caution: Do not modify the registry parameters unless specifically instructed
to do so by support personnel. Modifying registry parameters can result in an
unstable SAN.
The data display lists all available device driver parameters, along with the
current, minimum, maximum, and default values. Parameters that have their value
specified in the system registry are denoted with either a G or an L in the left-most
column of the screen. The G indicates that the value is set in the global registry
entry, which applies to all HBAs that do not have a local registry entry. The L
indicates that the value is set in a registry entry specific to the selected HBA,
which overrides the value settings in the global entry.
Modify the Driver Parameters
From the LightPulse Utility Main menu screen:
1. Choose the desired HBA.
2. Expand the category list and choose Driver Parameters.
3. Double-click a Parameter Name.
4. Enter the desired value in the New Value field.
5. Choose the Permanent or Global checkbox:
40
■
Choose Permanent to cause the new value to be written to the system
registry. If Permanent is not selected, the parameter reverts to its default
value when the driver is reset.
■
Choose Global to change the global registry entry. Otherwise, the change
is made to the HBA-specific registry entry.

Set Up Persistent Binding
The persistent binding feature allows you to control the devices that are to be
presented to the system.
The Miniport driver detects all devices attached to the HBAs. Global
automapping assigns a binding type, target ID, SCSI bus, and SCSI ID to the
device. The binding type, SCSI bus, and SCSI ID may change when the system is
rebooted. When persistent binding is applied to one of these targets, the binding
type, SCSI bus, and SCSI ID remain the same, whether the system is rebooted or
whether Global Automap All Targets is subsequently disabled (enabled by
default).
The binding information is permanent because it is stored in the Windows
registry. The driver refers to the binding information at bootup.

Global Automap and Unmasking Overview
Global Automap All Targets defaults to enabled, to allow the driver to detect all
Fibre Channel devices attached to the HBAs. If Global Automap All Targets is
disabled, the driver detects Fibre Channel devices attached to the HBA, and does
not pass them to the operating system unless they are already persistently bound.
Global Automap All LUNs defaults to enabled and assigns an operating system
LUN ID to a Fibre Channel LUN ID for all LUNs behind the targets in your SAN.
LUN mapping can also be enabled and disabled at the target level. Global
automapping of LUNs is different from persistent binding. Global LUN
automapping does not concern itself with the SCSI ID or SCSI Bus. This is
because the global LUN mapping stays the same for the target when the system is
rebooted.
Globally Unmask All LUNs defaults to enabled, to allow the operating system
to see all LUNS behind targets. If Globally Unmask All LUNS is set to disabled
and you want the operating system to see all LUNS behind a specific target, you
must set unmasking at the target level.
Prerequisites
■
Installed SCSI Miniport driver
■
Installed LightPulse Utility
■
A target device with LUNs that have been properly configured
■
LUN Automap enabled and LUN Unmasking disabled on the LUN Mapping
window:
— If LUN Automap is enabled for the target, you can map each LUN
individually.
— Unless LUNs were previously mapped, if LUN Automap is disabled for
the target, no LUNs will be mapped when you reboot the system.
— If LUN Unmasking is disabled for the target, the HBA can see all LUNS
behind a specific target.

Federal Communications Commission Notice
Part 15 of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Rules and
Regulations has established Radio Frequency (RF) emission limits to provide an
interference-free radio frequency spectrum. Many electronic devices, including
computers, generate RF energy incidental to their intended function and are,
therefore, covered by these rules. These rules place computers and related
peripheral devices into two classes, A and B, depending upon their intended
installation. Class A devices are those that may reasonably be expected to be
installed in a business or commercial environment. Class B devices are those that
may reasonably be expected to be installed in a residential environment (for
example, personal computers). The FCC requires devices in both classes to bear a
label indicating the interference potential of the device as well as additional
operating instructions for the user.
The rating label on the device shows the classification (A or B) of the equipment.
Class B devices have an FCC logo or FCC ID on the label. Class A devices do not
have an FCC logo or ID on the label. After the class of the device is determined,
refer to the corresponding statement in the sections below.

Electrostatic Discharge
B
To prevent damaging the system, you must take precautions when setting up the
system or when handling parts. A discharge of static electricity from a finger or
other conductor may damage system adapters or other static-sensitive devices.
This type of damage can reduce the life expectancy of the device.
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 make sure you are properly grounded when touching a static-sensitive
component or assembly.
AB232A PCI-X Host Bus Adapter Installation Guide

Electrostatic Discharge
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
grounding, 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 for assistance with product
installation, contact your HP authorized reseller.
