Symptoms

QConvergeConsole CLI qaucli is slow or fails to start. This utility is required to update firmware on Oracle branded QLogic HBAs and is typically installed into one of the following locations:

/usr/lib/ssm/fwupdate/qlogic/qaucli
/opt/QLogic_Corporation/QConvergeConsoleCLI/qaucli

Changes

Large configurations are more likely to run into this issue. For example, on a system where there are 2500 LUNs presented on 4 paths, 2 behind each HBA, equates to 10,000 discreet LUN paths. It takes at least three IOCTLs to each target and LUN to discover all the information, resulting in over 30,000 IOCTLs. The update_sol.sh script included with multiboot updates starts qaucli 15 times. It could take an entire day to complete the update.
