Symptoms

This is a Solaris 11.2 SRU 7 server with one Oracle Qlogic 16GB FC HBA (Ganymede) Part Number 7023303

Initially the FC HBA is configured with qlc driver

/devices/pci@8100/pci@4/pci@0/pci@9/SUNW,qlc@0/fp@0,0:devctl       CONNECTED
/devices/pci@8100/pci@4/pci@0/pci@9/SUNW,qlc@0,1/fp@0,0:devctl     CONNECTED

/SYS/PCI2         PCIE  SUNW,qlc-pciex1077,2031           QLE8362    8.0GT/x8   8.0GT/x4
                        /pci@8100/pci@4/pci@0/pci@9/SUNW,qlc@0
/SYS/PCI2         PCIE  SUNW,qlc-pciex1077,2031           QLE8362    8.0GT/x8   8.0GT/x4
                        /pci@8100/pci@4/pci@0/pci@9/SUNW,qlc@0,1

Above output shows PCI Identifiers Vendor ID 0x1077 and Device ID 0x2031, so this FC HBA is correctly configured in Fibre Channel mode.

 

To configure it under qlt driver (target mode), we unbind it from qlc driver, that works fine:

root@server01# update_drv -d -i 'pciex1077,2031' qlc
Cannot unload module: qlc
Will be unloaded upon reboot.
root@server01#

But the step to bind this type of FC HBA to the qlt driver gives an error:

root@server01# update_drv -a -i 'pciex1077,2031' qlt
Driver (qlt) not installed.
root@server01#

This is because we need to install this additional package that includes qlt driver:

root@server01# pkg install system/storage/scsi-target-mode-framework

After that update_drv works fine:

root@server01# update_drv -a -i 'pciex1077,2031' qlt
devfsadm: driver failed to attach: qlt
Warning: Driver (qlt) successfully added to system but failed to attach
root@server01#

 

After reboot, the qlt driver fails to attach to this FC HBA, on the messages files we see:

Mar  3 12:04:03 server01 qlt: [ID 696377 kern.warning] WARNING: qlt(0): unknown devid(2031), failing attach
Mar  3 12:04:03 server01 qlt: [ID 696377 kern.warning] WARNING: qlt(1): unknown devid(2031), failing attach

 

Cards under qlt driver are not shown by luxadm -e port as expected, and with mdb -k we can see qlt driver is binded to the card, but not attached:

root@server01:~# luxadm -e port
root@server01:~# mdb -k
