hpfc - Agilent fibre channel host bus adapter
The hpfc fibre channel host bus adapter is a SCSA compliant
nexus driver that supports all Agilent fibre channel host
bus adapters, including the HHBA5100x, HHBA5101x, and
HHBA5121x models. Agilent host bus adapters support the
fibre channel protocol on private fibre channel arbitrated
loops and fabrics. The driver supports up to ten host bus
adapters, with a maximum of 125 fibre channel devices on
each host bus adapter. The hpfc driver supports a maximum of
256 LUNs per target.
The hpfc driver does not support the BIOS Int 13 feature,
which enables the booting of an operating system. As a
result, you should not install an operating system on dev-
ices attached to the hpfc driver.
The hpfc driver attempts to configure itself using the
information in the /kernel/drv/hpfc.conf configuration file.
By default, the driver supports only LUN 0 for each target
device. To add multiple LUN support, modify the
Before upgrading the hpfc driver, backup the sd.conf file to
save customized LUN settings and then use pkgrm(1M) to
remove the old version of the driver.
The host bus adapter port is initialized to FL_Port when
connected to a fabric switch. To change it to F_Port, add
the init_as_nport=1 entry to the hpfc.conf file and reboot
To conserve system resources, at least one disk drive must
be attached to the hpfc driver. If no devices are attached,
the driver will not load.
