About FC attached devices
In nbhba mode, all devices that are attached to QLogic ISP2312 and ISP24xx HBA ports are unavailable. If disk or tape devices are attached to QLogic HBAs, those devices become unavailable. They remain unavailable until you exit nbhba mode on that computer.
Do not configure HBAs on a computer that has a start device that is attached to a QLogic ISP2312 or ISP24xx port. If you do, the computer may become unbootable. If any critical file systems are mounted on any devices that are attached to a QLogic HBA, the computer also may become unbootable. Before you begin HBA configuration, dismount any file systems that are attached to a QLogic HBA.
To determine if devices are attached to QLogic HBAs, you should examine your devices and your mounted file systems.
You can configure the QLogic HBAs on a different NetBackup media server that does not contain a QLogic HBA connected start device. Then, you can install them in the NetBackup FT media servers and configure the FT services. Afterward, you should remove the nbhba driver from the media server on which you configured the HBAs.
The process also ends nbhba mode on that computer.
