Symptoms

Oracle Linux server had an Oracle FC HBA was configured to access an SL500 FC Autochanger and Tape drives, via FC switch.

Notice. This problem could be observed with other operating systems like Solaris or Windows.

 

The Oracle FC HBA failed , connection to the FC switch was lost and it was replaced.

After FC HBA replacement, the connectivity to the switch is fine again:

But the FC HBA does not detect / see the SL500 autochanger and/or the tape drives.

The new WWN of the FC HBA has been configured on the FC switch zonning and this is correct.
