Hello,
we tried to install Proxmox with a MSA2040 SAN and with our HP Emulex LPE12002

I tried Proxmox 4.4, 5.0, 5.1

Everywhere i get the same error.
I cannot see any disk.

The Server had running Vsphere 5.5 before and everything works here.

I have no idea what i can do. I investigated already many hours without any solution.

I already tried to install a different lpfc driver:
Emulex LightPulse Fibre Channel SCSI driver 11.2.307.13
But still the same....

I installed hp_fibreutils but this tool also does not find any disk.

root@pve3:/opt/hp/hp_fibreutils# ./adapter_info
/sys/class/scsi_host/host2: wwnn=0x20000000c9e3ae64 wwpn=0x10000000c9e3ae64 state=Online
/sys/class/scsi_host/host4: wwnn=0x20000000c9e3ae65 wwpn=0x10000000c9e3ae65 state=Online

It switches between Linkdown and Online all few seconds.

Can someone help me with this issue?

Update:
Today i updated the Firmware and Boot Version to the latest (11.14)

Then i tried 2 different LPE12002 cards in 2 different Servers.
HP DL370 G6
HP ML310 g8

Both produce exactly the same error.

Today i changed the adapter to a QLE2562-A-NAP Adapter.

It works like a charm. No issues.

Dont know what the problem with the LPE12002 is. :-(
