If you are unsure which Fibre Channel host bus adapter (HBA) to replace, complete this procedure to identify it.

What you’ll need
  • You have the serial number of the storage appliance or SG6000-CN controller where the Fibre Channel HBA needs to be replaced.

    Note If the serial number of the storage appliance containing the Fibre Channel HBA you are replacing starts with the letter Q, it will not be listed in the Grid Manager. You must check the tags attached to the front of each SG6000-CN controller in the data center until you find a match.
  • You are signed in to the Grid Manager using a supported web browser.

Steps
  1. From the Grid Manager, select NODES.

  2. From the table on the Nodes page, select an appliance Storage Node.

  3. Select the Hardware tab.

    Check the Storage appliance chassis serial number and the Compute controller serial number in the StorageGRID Appliance section. See if one of these serial numbers matches the serial number of the storage appliance where you are replacing the Fibre Channel HBA. If either serial number matches, you have found the correct appliance.

    Appliance section for Fibre Channel HCA
    • If the StorageGRID Appliance section does not display, the node selected is not a StorageGRID appliance. Select a different node from the tree view.

    • If the Appliance Model is not SG6060 or SG6060X, select a different node from the tree view.

    • If the serial numbers do not match, select a different node from the tree view.

  4. After you locate the node where the Fibre Channel HBA needs to be replaced, write down the Compute controller BMC IP address listed the StorageGRID Appliance section.

    You can use this IP address to turn on the compute controller identify LED, to help you locate the appliance in the data center.
