Detailed instructions for use are in the User's Guide.
[. . . ] The v2. 1. 7 firmware is also available on the Compaq website at www. compaq. com/products/storageworks/hubs-and-bridges/firmwareupdate. html This firmware is for the Fibre Channel SAN Switch only and will not work if loaded into older Fibre Channel Storage Switches.
The Fibre Channel SAN Switch software (version 2. 1. 7 and above) is compatible with the Fibre Channel Switch software (versions 1. 6d), allowing both types of switches to operate in the same fabric. To accomplish this compatibility, the Fibre Channel SAN Switch must be configured to use a specific addressing mode. This mode is designated "VC Encoded Address Mode. " Invoke this mode using the configure command, as described in Appendix A of TM the Compaq StorageWorks Fibre Channel SAN Switch Management Guide. When using compatibility mode, the maximum switch count in a fabric is reduced from 239 to 32, and the maximum number of multicast groups is reduced from 256 to 31. [. . . ] The parameters are "0" for off and "1" for on.
Quick Soft Initialization
When Quick Soft Initialization is selected, the QuickLoop initialization assumes some pre-configured loop conditions. Quick Soft Initialization is not selected by default and should not be selected without consulting Compaq technical support.
Table 1 lists the licenses key translations. The display format follows this but is hex, for example, 01B=27 decimal which translates into Web+Zoning+QL+Fabric=1+2+8+16=27.

configUpload Telnet Command
An FTP server must be installed and running when performing the Telnet command configUpload on a Windows NT system. If you do not have a Microsoft Windows NT FTP server previously installed on your system, you need to install it. Perform the following steps to install and configure a Windows NT FTP server. Create a folder to put the switch firmware and configuration files in. Install the Windows NT FTP server on your system from your Windows NT installation CD. If you only use the FTP server for the firmware and configuration loads, you can specify the folder created in Step 1 as the FTP Publish Directory. Open the Internet Service Manager Tool found in the Start menu under Internet Information Service or Peer Web Service. Clear "Allow Anonymous Connections" if the password-restricted access is desired. Select the Directories tab then select the folder you created in Step 1. If this folder was not selected as the root folder add it to the list. Highlight the folder and make sure the read and write boxes are selected. Perform a configuration save by using the Telnet command configUpload. In the instructions, the source files that are referred to are the standard Windows NT server or Workstation CD. FTP Service uses the standard users defined under Windows NT, so a valid local user and password is required. Appropriate permissions for the created folder (NTFS volumes only) must be setup to allow the user to have read and write privileges. Another link that may be used to create a specific directory structure for use of firmware downloads explains how to create a directory structure for a specific login, but this is not necessary if FTP is only being used for switch use.
8 Compaq StorageWorks Fibre Channel SAN Switch 16 Release Notes
The qlPortShowAll command displays the following QuickLoop port information for each port:
Enabled--QuickLoop mode enabled Disabled--QuickLoop mode disabled
Online--Completed loop initialization Lipped--NL_port lipped Lipping--FL_port lipped Initializing--Loop initialization in progress Bypassed--Looplet being bypassed Error--Error found in this looplet Offline--Looplet offline Fabric--OLD_PORT state Not in QuickLoop Mode--Port is not in QuickLoop mode
The Fibre Channel SAN Switch has a software readable serial number that can be accessed by using the Telnet command "ssn. " Switches that have been upgraded to firmware v2. 1. 7 will not display the software readable serial number when this command is given, instead the switch World Wide Name (WWN) will display. If you have a switch with firmware v2. 1. 7 preinstalled and the switch displays the WWN instead of the software readable serial number, contact customer service.
Compaq StorageWorks Fibre Channel SAN Switch 16 Release Notes 9
This section describes the known issues and problems related to the Fibre Channel SAN Switches, as of 6/1/00.
Fibre Channel SAN Switch
Only eight E-ports per switch are supported.
QuickLoop, with large numbers of looplets (16), can cause some adapters to time out during initialization, resulting in repetitive initializations. A new Telnet command has been added that can speed up initialization:
qlUnmaskLipa [ 0 | 1 ]
The parameter can be set to "0" or "1". When set to "1" (the default for new switches), initializing a looplet is on. When the parameter is set to initializing a looplet, the v2. 1. 7 QuickLoop masks the Arbitrated Loop Physical Address (AL_PA) bits in the Loop Initialization Procedure (LIPA) frame using the LIPA bitmaps of those looplets that stay online. [. . . ] Single-mode cables typically use 9/125 optical fibers for distances up to 10 km.
Giga-Bit Interface Converter (GBIC) modules for the Fibre Channel SAN Switches must be ordered separately. The Compaq part number for the shortwave optical GBIC module for multi-mode cable is 380561-B21. Two longwave GBIC modules and a short single-mode test cable can be ordered in a kit (part number 340412-B21). In the Switch Management Application page of the Web Management Tools, the GBICs are identified differently depending on the type of GBIC and the supplier. [. . . ]
