Has anyone successfully used Oracle VM Server 3.2.1 with QLogic or Emulex FC cards?

    we are using 3.1.1 on x3850 X5 with IBM 42D0494 8Gb 2-Port PCIe FC HBA for System x. Driver version Emulex LightPulse Fibre Channel SCSI driver 8.3.5.58.2p
    Works well, but it seems we have some issues with MSI-X

    Hello,

    I can confirm MSI-X issues with QLogic QMD8262 CNA adapter in both 3.1.1 and 3.2.1 OVS ( qla2xxx and qlcnic kernel drivers )

    Regards

    Hi Karel!

    Hmm sounds interesting :)

    in fact we also have same problems with MSI-X with UCNA Emulex adapters: Emulex 10GbE Custom Adapter for IBM System x, NIC PF
    driver: be2net

    firmware-version: 4.1.442.0

    dmesg | grep be2net

    do you have SR on that?

    Hi,

    hw is Dell M620 and QLogic QMD8262 2p NDC.

    With 2.6.39-200 series kernel and pci=nomsi both nic and san are working.

    With 2.6.39-300 series kernel I'm unable to get working nic and san together. Either san or nic, not both together.

    Sure, SR is opened.

    I use storagetek HBAs on 3.1.1... which are really Oracle branded qlogic cards. Works good without any issues so far.
