Introduction

1.1

How to Use this Guide

The SANblade™QLogic host bus adapters (HBAs) supported in this document are described in the following paragraphs. They are collectively referred to as the QLA2310F/2310FL HBA unless otherwise noted.

QLA®2310F (single channel, full-height bracket, optical media)

QLA®2310FL (single channel, low-profile bracket, optical media)

The QLA2310F/2310FL HBAs are 64-bit, 66-MHz PCI-X to Fibre Channel optical media.

First, install the QLA2310F/2310FL HBA according to the directions in the appropriate hardware installation section. Secondly, install the software driver according the directions in the associated readme.txt file.

1.2

General Description

Thank you for selecting the QLA2310F/2310FL Fibre Channel (FC) HBA. The QLA2310F/2310FL HBA is an intelligent, high-performance, DMA bus master host adapter designed for high-end systems. The intelligence and performance are derived from the ISP23xx chips, making the QLA2310F/2310FL HBA a leading-edge host adapter. The ISP23xx combines a powerful RISC processor, a Fibre Channel protocol manager (FPM) with one or more 2-Gb Fibre Channel transceivers, and a peripheral component interconnect-extended (PCI-X) local bus interface in a single-chip solution. The QLA2310F/2310FL HBA supports all FC peripherals that support private loop direct attach (PLDA) and fabric loop attach (FLA). Installation of the QLA2310F/2310FL HBA is quick and easy.

1.3

What is Fibre Channel?

Fibre Channel technology is outlined in the SCSI-3 Fibre Channel Protocol (SCSI-FCP) standard. Fibre Channel is a high-speed data transport technology used for mass storage and networking. It connects mainframes, super computers, workstations, storage devices, and servers.

Fibre Channel supports data transfer rates up to 200 MBps half-duplex and 400 MBps full-duplex on copper and optical interfaces. The QLA2310F/2310FL HBAs use a multimode optical interface for intermediate distances (less than

500 meters at the data rate of 1 Gbps; less than 300 meters at the data rate of 2 Gbps).

With its increased connectivity and performance, Fibre Channel is the I/O technology preferred and used by system designers.

1.4

Features

Compliance with PCI Local Bus Specification revision 2.2

Compliance with PCI-X Addendum (revision 1.0) to the PCI Local Bus Specification

Compliance with Third Generation Fibre Channel-Physical and Signaling Interface (FC-PH-3) standard

Compliance with Fibre Channel-Arbitrated Loop (FC-AL-2) standard

Compliance with U.S. and international safety and emissions standards

Support for bus master DMA

Fast!UTIL BIOS utility to customize the configuration parameters on the QLA23xx HBA and attached drives

Supports Fibre Channel protocol-SCSI (FCP-SCSI) and IP

Supports point-to-point fabric connection (F-PORT FABRIC LOGIN)

Supports Fibre Channel security protocol (FC-SP) using DH-CHAP (Solaris SPARC 2.6, 7, 8, and 9 only)

Supports fabric device management interface (FDMI) on the following operating systems: Windows 2000; Windows Server 2003; Red Hat Linux 8 and 9, Advanced Server 2.1; SuSE SLES 8; Solaris 2.6, 7, 8 and 9

Using FDMI, storage area network (SAN) administrators can view device-specific information (for example, driver version, firmware version, and model number) from a central console, regardless of the device manufacturer. This information is kept at the FC switch and viewed through the switch's management application or third party SAN management applications.
