OMFG. I have been trying to get this running for over 6 months myself... Total PIA.
Your instructions are simply mana from heaven.
Everything worked as you detailed, even the dashes instead of the IP in portal creation. It showed red, but it still accepted it.
Now if I can get the other side running correctly - I am using Xenserver 6.2 - I can tell you if it worked end to end.
Thanks for the help so far. I will update this thread when I have completed some testing.
Holy Frickin Crap! It showed up as an SR! I am formatting it now!
Somebody pinch me I am dreaming!!
OK I am a bit calmer now. It seems to be working as advertised. It shows up as HBA storage on my xenserver. I could just cry...
I created a virtual disk now. Will install Windows to it now and report back, but it looks great to me. Again, your instructions worked perfectly.
It turns out this card, while still a brocade, is used as a QLE2662 under HP and Dell but I can't flash the cards with the firmware from them. Know of any way I can force flash a card with the firmware to try it out?I am afraid this HBA is not compatible. It is not a native QLogic HBA, but Brocade, whom QLogic just bought at some point. It requires different driver that we do not have and probably won't since the line seem to be discontinued after that generation.
