I have two cards QLogic 8Gb FC Dual-port HBA for IBM.

Now this cards are "invisible" onto my SLES.
Form IBM website I have downloaded drivers:
qlgc_dd_fc_qla2xxx-8.06.00.10.a_sles11_32-64.tgz

after unpacking this .tgz I have several rpm's:

/instalki_sap/sles11/x86_64/update/SUSE-SLES/11/rpm # ls -la

I'm a bit surprised that these cards are "invisible" - SLES11 should be able to see them. Would you mind telling us the level of the current kernel (uname -a would help), the module (modinfo qla2xxx) and the device PCI info (from lspci -nvk)?

If you actually need to use the IBM-supplied driver, select the one matching your kernel and install it via "rpm -i rpmname". As there are more than one kernel version available (depending on the SP & patch level), you may find that none of the above RPMs match your kernel...

Regards,
Jens

PS: I've used both IBM and HP versions of the QLogic cards and never had to use a specific driver for them - they ran simply out of the box with the SLES-supplied driver. Not that a more current driver might have improved things, but at least the cards were available...
