Lost connection of 10GB iscsi port for storeserv 8200Open in a New Window

I've setup a storeserv 8200 with 4 10GB iscsi port connections last week. The switch is configured with access port for all the port in the storage. All my ESXi host able to detect the 4 target.

Recently i discover that all my ESXi host only detects 2 target, and i test ping from esxi host to both failed port and the result are request time out. I tried to ping from both failed port to the esxi host having the same request timed out result.

I have tried to change the fibre cable and checked the switch configuration for any changes made after the deployment.

Any diagnostic method to detect the cause of the connection failure?

A reminder:

CSI 8000 uses the HPE 3PAR SmartStart and HPE 3PAR StoreServ management Console (SSMC) to configure and setup the array which are features of the HPE 3PAR OS 3.2.2.

An out-of-the-box (OOTB) or moment-of-birth (MOB) installation is not supported by the CSI 8000 feature.

2 Port 10G iSCSI/FCoE CNA card - mislabelOpen in a New Window

The latest HPE 3PAR StoreServ 8000 Storage Self-install guide has an update regarding a labeling issue with the 2 port 10G iSCSI/FCoE CNA card for the HPE 3PAR StoreServ 8000 array.

The current card H6Z10A “HP 3PAR StoreServ 8000 2-port 10Gb iSCSI/FCoE Adapter” has the Port numbering (1 & 2) swapped. So the port labeled PORT 1 is really PORT 2 and vice versa.

For more details, please see the latest “HPE 3PAR StoreServ 8000 Storage Self-install guide” at

and the Troubleshooting section concerning “Incorrect labeling on 2-port 10Gb iSCSI/FCoE CNA card”.

Thanks.
