We replace the old Xseve with new Mac mini server (10.8.2 ) with PROMISE SANLink adapter " Thunderbolt  to Fibre Channel)

we have 2 mac pro machines ( 10.7.5) with Apple fiber channel card in both machine (firmware 1.3 ) and 2 active storage (12x2TB ) , Qlogic 1400 fibe switch 8 Ports

our xsan system was runing with xserve as MDC from long time

 

Now we replace the xserve with new mac mini + SANLink adapter  and recreate the new XSAN Volume again as clean installation and mounted it on the server and on both machines

But unfortunately we found many problems

1- Mac mini server with PROMISE SANLink adapter takes about 20 Min to detect the fiber connection with LUNs we got LUNs not found message on xsan admin for about 20 Min , and then he found it and mounted on mac mini desktop

2-All mac pro ( 10.7.5 ) take about 20 min to detect the fiber channel ( get red and not connected for about 20 min after booting ) this happen only when I update the OSX from 10.6.8 to 10.7.5 ..!!!!

3-All client can not mount the xsan volume and computers did not authenticate .

4- I deleted the computers and can't add it again to computers list ..always can't authenticate

So what can it to to solve this problem  ???  , Is ther any firmware update for Apple fiber channel card for 10.7.5 , why

PROMISE SANLink adapter " Thunderbolt  to Fibre Channel)  takes 20 min to detect the fiber ???
