Re: Qlogic Fibre Channel Controller
Hello, I was curious if anyone has installed and/or has any
documentation or materials regarding
the installation of a qlogic 2340 HBA on a debian box. We would like
to connect some debian hosts
to a SAN in the near future. Is this a pretty straight forward
installation? Or will I be required to recompile
the kernel etc?
I am in the process of doing this myself (same card). I had to compile
my kernel, but only because it seems that the debian kernel has removed
the qla2300 module (could someone explain to me why?). If you use the
vanilla 2.6 sources though it will include the necessary kernel module.
I have a question of my own though. I'm not actually familiar w/ the
SAN technology and i'm not sure how to use it. I have two of the qlogic
cards in my box. Only one of them is hooked up to the fibre (the kernel
detects that it is hooked up), but how do i access the san? I really
have no idea how it works but it seems like i should have a
/proc/scsi/qla2x00 w/ some various information about the cards, etc.
but i dont' have it. Could someone clue me into what i might be doing
