HP-UX with Secure Path anf HSG 60 raid CTRL can not see lun great 4

Hello.

I have HP-UX with Secure path and HSG 60
raid controller.

The HSG60 raid have total 8 luns
Lun0, Lun1, Lun2, Lun3,Lun 10, Lun 11, Lun 12, Lun 13

The HP see only first 4 luns as show in figure:
/0/1/1.15.0 disk HP 18.2GMAN3184MC
0/0/2/1.15.0 disk HP 18.2GMAN3184MC
255/255/0/0.0 disk HSG60
255/255/0/0.1 disk HSG60
255/255/0/0.2 disk HSG60
255/255/0/0.3 disk HSG60

Did any one know how I can cause to HP recognize the 4 adational luns 11-13 ?
Thanks.

Hi,

could you post (as a Text-File attachment) the output of a SHOW THIS command on your HSG60?
Looks like you're running in SCSI-2 mode, which only allows you to see LUNs from 0 to 7. Changing to SCSI-3 mode is not so simple! You'll also have to remove LUN0 and define a different unit number with the same storage set (should be possible without data loss)
The host connections must also have the OS type set to HP_VSA, which is only available with ACS 8.7. A SHOW THIS command will get most of this information.
What version of Securepath are you running?

Regards,
Stephen

Hello.
Thank you for answer.

There is show this output

As you can see I use the SCSI-3 protocol
the connetion type also set to VMS
Can you axplain the changes with Lun0

As you are already running SCSI-3 it is unlikely that you have a unit "D0", but you can check it anyway:

> show D0

You should change the connection type to HP instead of VMS.

Thanks.

I don`t have D0 unit it start from
D1-D4 and next D10-13.
It is possible that problem in "emty"
lun`s between D4 and D13 ?

Re: HP-UX with Secure Path anf HSG 60 raid CTRL can not see lun great 4

No, sorry. The problem is that the OS_TYPE=HP only allows 8 LUNs. As your controllers are running in multibus_failover mode, you usually have 4 paths to a single unit. If you can live with two paths, I suggest you raise the UNIT_OFFSET to 9 on both connections for controller ports 2. Then you will access D1..D3 through Port_1 and D10..D13 through Port_2.
