Section 1

Introduction

1.1

Product Overview

The SANsurfer® FC HBA CLI tool provides a command line interface (CLI) that lets you easily install, configure, and deploy QLogic® Fibre Channel (FC) host bus adapters (HBAs). It also provides robust diagnostic and troubleshooting capabilities and useful statistical information to optimize SAN performance. This tool only configures HBAs on the local machine (where SANsurfer FC HBA CLI is installed.)

SANsurfer FC HBA CLI is a simplified, condensed version of the SANsurfer FC HBA Manager graphical user interface (GUI).

SANsurfer FC HBA CLI can be operated in two modes:

Interactive mode (menu-driven interface). This mode requires user intervention.

Non-interactive mode (command line interface). Use this mode for scripting or when you want to do a single operation.

NOTE:

This guide uses interchangeably the terms HBA and adapter.

1.2

Guide Overview

This guide is intended for end users responsible for administration of QLogic FC HBAs.

1.2.1

How this Guide is Organized

The SANsurfer FC HBA CLI User’s Guide is organized into the following sections and appendices:

Section 1 Introduction: This section provides a general overview of the product, lists the supported QLogic HBAs and operating systems, lists the system hardware and software requirements, and provides contact information for technical support.

Text in bold font indicates a menu item, dialog box, tab, button, or check box in the user interface. For example:

From the General Information Menu, type the number for Host

Topology.

Text in a sans serif font (Courier New) indicates CLI window text output. For example:

The HBA already has the device selected as boot device.

Text in a bold sans serif font (Courier New) indicates user input (what you type). For example:

Guide Overview

#scli -z

Text in ALL CAPITALS usually indicates the name of a key that you press on the keyboard. For example:

Type the number for Host Information and then press ENTER.

Italicized text indicates either a document reference, glossary term, or emphasis. For example:

Attached Port means a QLogic HBA....

For a complete list, see the QLogic SAN Interoperability Guide.

Italicized text within angle brackets indicates user-defined variables. For example:

#scli -k (<HBA Instance> | <HBA WWPN>)

Text shown in blue indicates a cross-reference hyperlink to a Web site or to another section of this guide. Click the hyperlink to jump to that site or section. For example:

Visit the QLogic support Web site at support.qlogic.com for the latest firmware and product updates.

For information on Vital Product Data (VPD), see section 4.2.1.4.

In Section 4 Interactive Commands, a “breadcrumbs” line follows most command headings to show you how to access that option; that is, it shows the hierarchical path from the top level to the command under discussion. For example, to reach the Save to Text File options from the main SANsurfer FC HBA CLI menu, you would select option 1 to open the

General Information menu, 2 to open the Host Topology menu, and 2 again to see the Save to Text File options. The following shows a breadcrumbs example:

1: General Information

2: Host Topology

2: Save to Text File

Section 2

Getting Started

2.1

Introduction

SANsurfer FC HBA CLI operates in two modes:

Interactive (menu-driven). The CLI starts, and then waits for and executes input commands until terminated by the user. Use this mode to do multiple operations. Section 4 Interactive Commands covers this interface.

Non-interactive (command line). The CLI starts, does the functions defined by the list of parameters provided, and then terminates. Use this mode to run SANsurfer FC HBA CLI from a script file or when you want to do a single operation. Section 5 Non-interactive Commands covers this interface.

SANsurfer FC HBA CLIis not case sensitive in either mode. However, file names in some operating systems are case sensitive; in this case, SANsurfer FC HBA CLI is case sensitive for that specific file.

2.2

Starting Interactive Mode

To start SANsurfer FC HBA CLI in interactive mode, use one of these methods:

For Windows, click the SANsurfer FC CLI icon on the desktop.

For Linux or Solaris, open a command window and type:

scli INT

Or

scli

NOTE:

When starting SANsurfer FC HBA CLI from a Solaris console serial port connection, the CLI may take a long time to come up. To resolve this issue, specify the INT flag, as shown in the preceding bullet.

For Mac OS X, follow these steps:

1.Double-click the SANsurfer FC HBA CLI (SCLI) icon.

2.A terminal window opens. SCLI (interactive mode) scans the host for QLogic HBAs and SAN storage.

2.3

Starting Non-interactive Mode

To start SANsurfer FC HBA CLI in non-interactive mode, type the following in a command window:

scli <Parameters>

SANsurfer FC HBA CLI executes the command options, then terminates.

To list all of the available command line parameters and the SANsurfer FC HBA CLI version, type the following:

scli -h

– Or –

scli -?

In Solaris SPARC, include double quotes around the view option (?) if the system is running with a csh or tsch shell. For example:

# scli -e 0 "?"

For world wide node name (WWNN), world wide port name (WWPN), and port ID parameter inputs, SANsurfer FC HBA CLI accepts the notation with and without the dash (–). Hexadecimal values can be uppercase or lowercase.

The following input formats are valid for the WWNN and WWPN:

20-00-00-E0-8B-01-83-C4 200000E08B0183C4

The following inputs are valid for the port ID:

68-5C-AB 685CAB

All command line options must be preceded by the dash (–) or forward slash (/) notation. Most options have a corresponding menu selection in interactive mode. The valid command line options are listed in Table 2-1.

Terminology

2.4

Terminology

Some of the terms used in this guide are similar and some have changed slightly as technology changes. The following definitions apply:

HBA Port

HBA Port refers to the actual physical port on an HBA. For example, a QLA2462 has two ports called HBA port 1 and HBA port 2.

HBA Instance, HBA Instance number, or HBA Port Instance

When you install HBA in a system with other HBAs, each HBA port gets assigned a number by the driver or API so it knows which HBA to communicate with. This assigned number might be called HBA Instance, HBA instance number, or HBA Port Instance.

HBA Alias

When an alias is assigned to a physical HBA, no matter how many ports that HBA has, the HBA Alias refers to the HBA, not one of its ports.

Port Alias

You can also assign an alias to an individual port on an HBA. This Port Alias refers to only that port and none other.

Thus, an HBA can only have one HBA Alias, but each port on that HBA must, have a unique Port Alias.
