Installation of _what_, exactly? I know
nothing about a "smart array 5300", but an
old version of Tru64 may not know enough,
either.

Actual error messages?

Do you mean ">>>sh dev"?

I still know nothing, but is this a job for
wwidmgr?

Google finds ("wwidmgr"), for example:

Re: disk not detect

I think you should check the physical connection for the disk if you can not see the disk ou can not proceed.

Hi,

> but is this a job for wwidmgr?

No. wwidmgr would only be of use for Fibre attached disks.


If the dy... devices are being seen at the SRM prompt (P00>>>) but not the OS, then whatever version of the OS you're trying install doesn't recognise the SmartArray card.
