HP EVA causing logger screen entries every 1-2 seconds. How to get rid of?

Hi.

At a site there are 2 ML 570 G1 servers connected to a HP EVA.

Starting maybe at least several weeks in past there is one line every ~2 seconds
throwing at the logger screen.

A0=7.0.334/369.25 <0,0> {13,0,0} 36982 A1=21.0.5767225/7049702.27:<0,0> {15,0,1} 0

HP support *DID* confirm, that this is related to the EVA connected.

They told us, that EVA is *NOT* to be used with NW6.5 SP8, which is installed on
both servers.

IIRC the logger screen lines where there already prior the SP8 installation, but
that's not prooved, sorry...


----------- Startup.ncf --------------------

SET MULTI-PATH SUPPORT = ON

LOAD ACPIDRV.PSM

LOAD SCSIHD.CDM
LOAD IDECD.CDM

LOAD IDEATA.HAM SLOT=10006
LOAD C:\NWSERVER\DRIVERS\QL2X00D.HAM SLOT=8 /LUNS /ALLPATHS /PORTNAMES
LOAD C:\NWSERVER\DRIVERS\QL2X00D.HAM SLOT=6 /LUNS /ALLPATHS /PORTNAMES
LOAD CPQARRAY.HAM SLOT=7
rem LOAD CPQSCSI.HAM SLOT=10009
rem LOAD CPQSCSI.HAM SLOT=10010
----------- Startup.ncf EOF --------------------

the cqparray.ham is for the local smartarray (c: & SYS:)


Any suggestions appreciated, how to fix this. (maybe just some minor config thing?)

Ahem, if you load the (unsupported) debug version of the ql2x00.ham,
then you get, well, debug messages like mad.

Nice! BTW, it was not me installing that driver, but the larger company selling and
installing the EVA SAN solution. Propably the final "D" is marking the debug
version, right?


OK, will bereplaced, on my way.

Thanks, Rudi.

Nice. Not.

Right. And there's a reason that driver sits in the "unsupported" driver
directory. 😉

From a different NW6.5.8 server (without FC) I checked the QL* drivers:

QL2X00.DDI and QL2X00D.DDI seem to describe different HBA types in the section
"Products"?


Hm. Next step I'll ask the local admins to physically read the exact product type of
these QLogic HBAs...

You like making things complicated, and drawing invalid conclusions
right? 😉

No. They are 100% identical, except the "d". You cannot look at a
running server that doesn't have the hardware for drivers. If you want
to compare them, check the SP8 itself, or a SP8 overlay CD. If you see
differences, you're comparing outdated, non-similar versions.
A normal, default installed Netware 6.5 server doesn't even have the "d"
driver, as to get this you must specify "allow unsupported drivers" at
install time.

Alternatively, you can just trust me. <g>

Thanks for the flowers 😉

>No. They are 100% identical, except the "d".


You are right: I picked by mistake the QL2x00.ddi from \unsupdrv\ (instead of
\drivers\) and compared it to QL2x00D.DDI, that QL2x00.* in unsupdrv is a very
outdated version, 6.51.02.

Amazing, that the QL2x00.ham from SP8 (v7.00.00) is *NOT* listed at
http://developer.novell.com/devres/storage/drivers/#QLogic


>Alternatively, you can just trust me. <g>


Mr. Lexicon 🙂

Regards, Rudi.
