EMC DMX800, DMX1000 were visible to a Windows 2003 Server (R2, SP2) with Emulex HBA. After some Security Patches updated it has lost SAN Connectivity. HBAnywhere sees FA ports of Arrays. However, HBA of the host is not logging into the Array.

Software/Hardware used:
EMC DMX800, DMX1000, Windows 2003 R2 SP2, Cisco

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

There’s a possibility you’ll need to reinstall the MS hotfix for the storport driver. Check the vendor/tech support notes for your HBA.
Run a emcgrab report on the host. and then run it through HEAT on powerlink. That is the quickest way to nail down any issues.

    Ah the joys of not being able to test patches before they go into production. I'd remove the patch(es) first and then contact your vendor to see if they have a specific fix.
