How to attach backup drives to an integrity vm !!

Hi

 

I'm triying to present backup drives from a san backup enviroment to a VM using NPIV. I'm using the same procedure likes the san disk.

 

This is my configuration:

 

# hpvmdevinfo -V -p6
Virtual Machine Name      : siicontdb
Virtual Machine Number    : 6
VM Device Type            : disk
VM Adapter Type           : avio_stor
VM bus, device, target    : [0,1,0]
Backing Store Type        : disk
Host Device Name          : /dev/rdisk/disk138
VM Device Name            : /dev/rdisk/disk1
Host Device WWID          : '0x01.0x00.0x03.0x60002ac0000000000000002900005e9e'

Virtual Machine Name      : siicontdb
Virtual Machine Number    : 6
VM Device Type            : disk
VM Adapter Type           : avio_stor
VM bus, device, target    : [0,1,1]
Backing Store Type        : disk
Host Device Name          : /dev/rdisk/disk139
VM Device Name            : /dev/rdisk/disk3
Host Device WWID          : '0x01.0x00.0x03.0x60002ac0000000000000002a00005e9e'

Virtual Machine Name      : siicontdb
Virtual Machine Number    : 6
VM Device Type            : disk
VM Adapter Type           : avio_stor
VM bus, device, target    : [0,1,2]
Backing Store Type        : disk
Host Device Name          : /dev/rdisk/disk263
VM Device Name            : /dev/rdisk/disk5
Host Device WWID          : '0x01.0x00.0x03.0x60002ac0000000000000003200005e9f'

Virtual Machine Name      : siicontdb
Virtual Machine Number    : 6
VM Device Type            : disk
VM Adapter Type           : avio_stor
VM bus, device, target    : [0,1,3]
Backing Store Type        : disk
Host Device Name          : /dev/rdisk/disk264
VM Device Name            : /dev/rdisk/disk7
Host Device WWID          : '0x01.0x00.0x03.0x60002ac0000000000000003300005e9f'

Virtual Machine Name      : siicontdb
Virtual Machine Number    : 6
VM Device Type            : hba
VM Adapter Type           : avio_stor
VM bus, device            : [2,0]
Backing Store Type        : npiv
Host Device Name          : /dev/fclp17 ---> SAN BACKUP VHBA
VM Device Name            : /dev/gvsd2
NPIV WWNs (port,node)     : '0x100000110A030FC0,0x100000110A030FC1'

The vhba for this VM was assigned using the next command:

 

# hpvmmodify -P siicontdb -a hba:avio_stor:2,0,0x100000110a030fc0,0x100000110a030fc1:npiv:/dev/fclp17

The zonning in my san backup switch is correct. The problem is that the VM doesn't discover the drives by ioscan or VM reboot.

 

Some recommendation ??.

 

Regards

As long as the NPIV interface is in proper state (check with fclputil on VSP) the problem must be

either in the zoning or in the presentation of the tape device.

You may also check "get remote" fclputil against the vFC (NPIV) interface on VSP, if you see the taregt there.

the problem was in the libraries zonning. Now everything is working fine !!. Thank's in advance !!
