Can you invoke commands on the 3PAR?

 

showhost

showvlun -a -host a-host-from-showhost

I have tried showvlun but command was not available on unix machine. Is there any application we need to install on HPUX machine inorder to fuction the command showvlun ?

This command is currently only available on Linux or Windows (also GUI) or over ssh to the array.

(As of 3.1.2, you can install the remote CLI client on HP-UX.)

 

See SSH on p 53 of HP 3PAR InForm OS 3.1.1 CLI Administrator's Manual:

Hi,

 

Currently no similar tool exists for 3PAR like xpinfo (local query disk).  I've been told by our HP support team that this should be released in the future, but I didn't get any verification on this matter.

 

The only way, like mentionned before, is to ssh into the box and query the disks for your defined host.

 

I think it should be possible to script this, and crossreference diskinfo and sorts with the disks'WWPN's.

(e.g. showvv -d | awk '{print $2 "\"$10}' )

 

:edit: just noticed that 'showvv -showcols Name,VV_WWN' does the same as above command without awk ;-)

 

g'luck,

Nic
