I have received a pci-x card HP A6795AX A6795-62001 2G/1Gbps 64bit Single Port PCI Fibre Channel is possible to test it without cable connect to san or san switch? Or i will get error messages?System is HPUX, i want to test without cable only to see if card work or is broken.


usual try

 ioscan -e -C fc 
 ioscan -fnC fc

if 11iV3 fcinfo (can't remember syntax)

  • I know those commands,but my question was another,a fc card without SAN connected,better..without cable connected will return error messages?Is dangerous for card to connect without cable? – elbarna Oct 16 '15 at 17:00
