Its been a while since the last time I tried, but as I recall, I used the SANsurfer GUI, but it wouldn't talk to these particular HBA cards. It kept showing the cards as being off-line even though they were clearly working at the time.

Stan I assume you are using SANSurfer to set the persistant binding property
for those devices in the HBA?

My other storage node, which is a Dell 2950 with a Qualstar tape library that has 4 LTO-3 tape drives, I can't seem to get it to maintain persistent binding. The tape drives are all wired into individual HBA ports on the
Dell. The HBA cards are Dell branded, but made by Qlogic.
