How can I map CTD to /dev/disk devices?

We just received our first HP-UX 11.31 server.  I'm only familiar with LVM on HP-UX 11.i where disk devices such as /dev/dsk/c0t8d0 were displayed in commands like "strings /etc/lvmtab" and "vgdisplay -v vg00", etc.

 

These commands now return /dev/disk/disk4_p2 instead, and I'm wondering how to correlate this to the output of ioscan and lssf /dev/dsk/* which shows the /dev/dsk/ctd numbers?

 

Any help would be appreciated.

In 11.31, the ioscan command got a lot of new options.

 

In this particular case,

ioscan -m dsf

 is probably exactly what you're looking for.

 

Or if you want to map the new-style hardware paths :

ioscan -m hwpath

You should probably read through this white paper:

 

The Next Generation Mass Storage Stack  HP-UX 11i v3

http://bizsupport1.austin.hp.com/bc/docs/support/SupportManual/c01915618/c01915618.pdf

 

It should explain a lot of the new concepts that you haven't seen before.

Thanks Matti.  Looks like things have changed a bit.

 

My goal was to see what disks are available before creating as OS recovery image using the 'drd clone' command.

 

# ioscan -m dsf
Persistent DSF           Legacy DSF(s)
========================================
/dev/rdisk/disk3         /dev/rdsk/c0t8d0
/dev/rdisk/disk4         /dev/rdsk/c0t8d1
/dev/rdisk/disk4_p1      /dev/rdsk/c0t8d1s1
/dev/rdisk/disk4_p2      /dev/rdsk/c0t8d1s2
/dev/rdisk/disk4_p3      /dev/rdsk/c0t8d1s3


So I'm assuming c0t8d0 and c0t8d1 are separate disks.  vg00 contains /dev/disk/disk4_p2 and a pvcreate of /dev/rdisk/disk3 ran without complaint.
