Hi,

I've recently installed a dual port Qlogic hba and have configured a NW6.5
SP5 server to talk to an EVA 5000. I've experimented with various QL2300
load parameters but get "unbound device" with all of them. I understand I
need some kind of multipathing working and that the QL2300.HAM comes with
multi-path enabled by default. But I can alternatively use /ALLPORTS
/PORTNAMES in the loadline to disable the ham drivers multipathing and use
SET MULTI-PATH SUPPORT=ON to use Netware's.

This is what I've tried, with results:

************************************************** ******
LOAD QL2300.HAM SLOT=301 /LUNS
LOAD QL2300.HAM SLOT=302 /LUNS

Scan For New Devices and List Devices shows:

....Legacy Floppy
....Compaq Logical Volume
....Compaq CD-rom
....Unbound Device Object
....Unbound Device Object

************************************************** ******
LOAD QL2300.HAM SLOT=301 /LUNS /QUALIFIED
LOAD QL2300.HAM SLOT=302 /LUNS /QUALIFIED

Scan For New Devices and List Devices shows:

....Legacy Floppy
....Compaq Logical Volume
....Compaq CD-rom
....Unbound Device Object
Compaq HSV110 [HDD]

************************************************** ******

LOAD QL2300.HAM SLOT=301 /LUNS /ALLPATHS /PORTNAMES
LOAD QL2300.HAM SLOT=302 /LUNS /ALLPATHS /PORTNAMES

Scan For New Devices and List Devices shows:

....Legacy Floppy
....Compaq Logical Volume
....Compaq CD-rom
....Unbound Device Object
....Unbound Device Object
....Unbound Device Object
Compaq HSV110 [HDD]
....Unbound Device Object
....Unbound Device Object
....Unbound Device Object

************************************************** ******************

LOAD QL2300.HAM SLOT=301 /LUNS /ALLPATHS /PORTNAMES /QUALIFIED
LOAD QL2300.HAM SLOT=302 /LUNS /ALLPATHS /PORTNAMES /QUALIFIED

Scan For New Devices and List Devices shows:

....Legacy Floppy
....Compaq Logical Volume
....Compaq CD-rom
....Unbound Device Object
....Unbound Device Object
Compaq HSV110 [HDD]
....Unbound Device Object
....Unbound Device Object
Compaq HSV110 [HDD]

************************************************** ******************

I can understand why using /ALLPATHS /PORTNAMES doubles the number of
objects I'm seeing (I haven't enabled Netware's multipathing yet) but
whatever I do I'm getting "Unbound Device Object". I've tried SCAN ALL LUNS
but it doesn't show anything.

Any suggestions?
