X1144A - No link

Alexander Griesser-2

Hi,

 

I’ve just installed those fancy X1144A cards in one of our AFF300 systems and it seems they’re getting recognized properly, but I’m not able to get a link on them.

 

sysconfig says:

 

        slot 2: 40 Gigabit Ethernet Controller XL710 QSFP+

                e2a MAC Address:    3c:fd:fe:a2:90:c8 (auto-unknown-down)

                e2e MAC Address:    3c:fd:fe:a2:90:c9 (auto-unknown-down)

 

SAN01::> net port show -port e2*

  (network port show)

 

Node: SAN01-01

                                                  Speed(Mbps) Health

Port      IPspace      Broadcast Domain Link MTU  Admin/Oper  Status

--------- ------------ ---------------- ---- ---- ----------- --------

e2a       Default      -                down 1500  auto/10    -

e2e       Default      -                down 1500  auto/10    -

 

Node: SAN01-02

                                                  Speed(Mbps) Health

Port      IPspace      Broadcast Domain Link MTU  Admin/Oper  Status

--------- ------------ ---------------- ---- ---- ----------- --------

e2a       Default      -                down 1500  auto/10    -

e2e       Default      -                down 1500  auto/10    -

4 entries were displayed.

 

For testing purposes, I did connect e2a on node1 to e2a on node 2 and I already tried exchanging the QSFPs and cables, but still no dice.

Any idea what could be wrong here?

 

According to HWU, the minimum required OS version is 9.1RC2, which is exactly what is installed currently:

Good question – I’m using the QSFPs and the cables that came with the cards, so I’m positive that those should be supported.

But I’m trying to find out.

Curious...are you using it as a two-port 40Gb card or using the breakout cable?

OK, a little confused now. Are you trying to use copper or optical?

According to HWU, the X1144A as QSFP+ slots and the cable ends look identical to the SAS cables.
The NetApp end should be any supported copper cable with a QSFP+ end or an optical transciever (X65402A, mfg 332-00389).
The optical transciver will have the QSFP+ going into the filer and exposing the MPO end for your optical cable

Since it looks like you are trying to use Optical, are you *sure* the optical transcivers are the right ones for that card?

AW: X1144A - No link

Alexander Griesser-2

Those are optical cables, that got shipped with the card and the transceivers.

According to HWU, those are the transceivers:

 

 

 

They look exactly like these and HWU calls them X65402.

The connector looks exactly like the MPO connector which can also be seen in HWU and hast he cable number X66200-2 – so this is what I got:

 

X1144A Adapter

X65402 Transceivers

X66200-2 Cables

 

Should all play well with 9.1RC2 on the AFF-A300.

 

Since 9.1 has already been released, I’ll upgrade this system to 9.1 and see if that changes anything – maybe there’s a reason why they call it RC J

OK, a little confused now. Are you trying to use copper or optical?

 

According to HWU, the X1144A as QSFP+ slots and the cable ends look identical to the SAS cables.

The NetApp end should be any supported copper cable with a QSFP+ end or an optical transciever (X65402A, mfg 332-00389).

The optical transciver will have the QSFP+ going into the filer and exposing the MPO end for your optical cable

 

Since it looks like you are trying to use Optical, are you *sure* the optical transcivers are the right ones for that card?

RE: X1144A - No link

andrei.borzenkov@ts.fujitsu.com

There are (at least) three different “polarities” of MPO cables. Depending on what you connect together you need different polarity type. Unfortunately this is very confusing topic and often either not well known or forgotten. In particular, NetApp does not list cable polarity.

 

See http://www.fiber-optic-tutorial.com/understanding-polarity-in-mpo-system.html for tutorial.

 

You can check where lights are on both ends; this is probably the most easy way to find out if your cable is correct.

In reply to this post by Alexander Griesser-2

Hi Mike,

 

Thanks, I had a similar issue with 1G copper SFPs in the past – but that doesn’t seem to apply here since the 40G ports are on an expansion slot and do not seem to be CNA capable:

 

*> cna_flash update all

 

NOTE: The flash update will take up to 30 minutes per update.

      (Current 2 chip(s) in the system)

Do not interrupt power during the update, or you risk flash image corruption.

 

Version (5.0.2) is the same in flash and file

No update of flash is needed for port 0e.

Version (5.0.2) is the same in flash and file

No update of flash is needed for port 0g.

 

-> While the expansion ports are in slot 2.

 

Also, the upgrade to Ontap 9.1 did not solve the issue – will check the cables now when I’m in the datacenter.

 

Best,

Just a thought- 

I noticed that on a FAS2554, when trying to use 1G SFPs (copper) in the UTA ports, I had similar issues.  I ended up having to apply a firmware update to the UTA2 system, IIRC, from maintenance mode.  I have nothing that leads me to believe that is the case here, but it sounds somewhat close.

 

The updated firmware was actually on the system with the code it shipped with, but needed to be manually applied.  

 

If all else fails, there's always a support ticket :)

For testing purposes, I did connect e2a on node1 to e2a on node 2 and I already tried exchanging the QSFPs and cables, but still no dice.

Any idea what could be wrong here?

Re: X1144A - No link

Hey Alexander,

Curious if you solved this issue. 

I'm running into the same thing, but using copper QSFP NetApp cables.

I have several FAS9000s with X91440A-C dual-port 40GbE cards, connecting to X190001 (Cisco 3132Q-V cluster net switches) via 3 meter copper X66100-3 40GbE QSFP cables.

No link on either the filers, or the switches.  

The switches see the cables are inserted, but have status 'notconnec'.  The ISL trunk connections between switches (ports 31/32 listed here) are working though:

Ports 7 and 8 listed here are going back to the filers, and that's where I'm hoping to get link, but no luck.

Hi Mike,

 

Thanks, I had a similar issue with 1G copper SFPs in the past – but that doesn’t seem to apply here since the 40G ports are on an expansion slot and do not seem to be CNA capable:

 

*> cna_flash update all

 

NOTE: The flash update will take up to 30 minutes per update.

      (Current 2 chip(s) in the system)

Do not interrupt power during the update, or you risk flash image corruption.

 

Version (5.0.2) is the same in flash and file

No update of flash is needed for port 0e.

Version (5.0.2) is the same in flash and file

No update of flash is needed for port 0g.

 

-> While the expansion ports are in slot 2.

 

Also, the upgrade to Ontap 9.1 did not solve the issue – will check the cables now when I’m in the datacenter.

 

Best,

Betreff: Re: X1144A - No link

 

Just a thought- 

I noticed that on a FAS2554, when trying to use 1G SFPs (copper) in the UTA ports, I had similar issues.  I ended up having to apply a firmware update to the UTA2 system, IIRC, from maintenance mode.  I have nothing that leads me to believe that is the case here, but it sounds somewhat close.

 

The updated firmware was actually on the system with the code it shipped with, but needed to be manually applied.  

 

If all else fails, there's always a support ticket :)

Those are optical cables, that got shipped with the card and the transceivers.

According to HWU, those are the transceivers:

They look exactly like these and HWU calls them X65402.

The connector looks exactly like the MPO connector which can also be seen in HWU and hast he cable number X66200-2 – so this is what I got:

 

X1144A Adapter

X65402 Transceivers

X66200-2 Cables

 

Should all play well with 9.1RC2 on the AFF-A300.

 

Since 9.1 has already been released, I’ll upgrade this system to 9.1 and see if that changes anything – maybe there’s a reason why they call it RC J

OK, a little confused now. Are you trying to use copper or optical?

 

According to HWU, the X1144A as QSFP+ slots and the cable ends look identical to the SAS cables.

The NetApp end should be any supported copper cable with a QSFP+ end or an optical transciever (X65402A, mfg 332-00389).

The optical transciver will have the QSFP+ going into the filer and exposing the MPO end for your optical cable

 

Since it looks like you are trying to use Optical, are you *sure* the optical transcivers are the right ones for that card?

AW: X1144A - No link

Alexander Griesser-2

Hi Mike,

 

yes, I got it solved and wanted to reply back earlier but somehow always forgot about it :-/

I’m not really sure what finally was the fix, since I was having the filer in my lab when I encountered the issues and time ran out on the project to further debug this, so we shipped it to its final destination, powered it back on and everything was working.

So I’m not sure i fit was the full halt of both filers to finally accept the NICs or i fit was a stronger guy than me who pushed in the QSFP+ modules (since the datacenter guy said that compared to the other modules in the servers f.ex., those had to be pushed in harder, whatever that means) and from then on, I was having full connectivity on all four modules in my gear.

 

I think I’ll never find out if it was me being to weak, or if the full powercycle helped it.

Re: X1144A - No link

If I recall, I remember reading when changing the personality of those cards (i.e. 40G to 4x10G or vice-versa), it requires going into maintenance mode, making the change, doing a halt and then a power cycle of the head to fully reset the NIC. a reboot or halt/boot is not good enough.

I am a little late to the party here, but FYI changing these from 1x40GbE to 4x10GbE or vice versa requires that the controller hosting the card you’re doing this on requires a restart to be functional (just like changing a CNA card personality from FC to Ethernet or an FC interface to target/initiator).

 

Cheers & Good Luck!

If I recall, I remember reading when changing the personality of those cards (i.e. 40G to 4x10G or vice-versa), it requires going into maintenance mode, making the change, doing a halt and then a power cycle of the head to fully reset the NIC. a reboot or halt/boot is not good enough.

Hi Mike,

 

yes, I got it solved and wanted to reply back earlier but somehow always forgot about it :-/

I’m not really sure what finally was the fix, since I was having the filer in my lab when I encountered the issues and time ran out on the project to further debug this, so we shipped it to its final destination, powered it back on and everything was working.

So I’m not sure i fit was the full halt of both filers to finally accept the NICs or i fit was a stronger guy than me who pushed in the QSFP+ modules (since the datacenter guy said that compared to the other modules in the servers f.ex., those had to be pushed in harder, whatever that means) and from then on, I was having full connectivity on all four modules in my gear.

 

I think I’ll never find out if it was me being to weak, or if the full powercycle helped it.

 

Best,

Hey Alexander,

Curious if you solved this issue. 

I'm running into the same thing, but using copper QSFP NetApp cables.

I have several FAS9000s with X91440A-C dual-port 40GbE cards, connecting to X190001 (Cisco 3132Q-V cluster net switches) via 3 meter copper X66100-3 40GbE QSFP cables.

No link on either the filers, or the switches.  

The switches see the cables are inserted, but have status 'notconnec'.  The ISL trunk connections between switches (ports 31/32 listed here) are working though:

Ports 7 and 8 listed here are going back to the filers, and that's where I'm hoping to get link, but no luck.

Just upgraded from 9.1 to 9.1p2 in hopes that might have some effect, but no change.

I'm stumped.
