I have just added a new blade server HP PROLIANT BL 465 G7 to a HP C7000 ENCLOSURE. The server was installed on slot 4 of the blade enclosure. It has a QLOGIC hba installed on it. There is no operating system installed. The fibre cable has been connected to the pass through module at the back on the corresponding port ie port 4. This has been connected to the MDS SWITCH. The port on the MDS SWITCH has been enable. When running FLOGI DATABASE command on the swith it does not show the WWN of the HBA CARD on the server. Is it because there is no OS installed on the server. What do I need to do for this to be visible to the switch without installing operating system.
Software/Hardware used: HP PROLIANT BL 465 G7 AND MDS 9124 CISCO SWITCH
