Problem EVA 4400 and rp3440 11.11

Hello together

 

I have to connect an EVA 4400 to an rp3440 server running HP-UX 11.11 Patch Level Dec 2006. It is a reference string for our customer. The golden image was frozen.

 

ioscan

I created to virtual disks on the EVA and presented them to the server. But on the server I do not see any disk. I rebooted the maschine several times.

 

Any ideas?

 

Regards

 

Bernd

Did you set the host mode to hp-ux during presentation (default would be wrong)?


Hope this helps!

Of course. My 11.11 Server is declared as a HP-UX server.

 

Thx

Zoning must be OK, because the controllers are visible.

The "255" in the path looks a bit strange.

 

 

However, it could cause problems if you delete a LUN and present a new LUN with the same LUN number.

 

Look into the syslog after running ioscan and double check the LUN presentation.


Hope this helps!

Torsten.

I deleted the LUNs and created new once with other LUN numbers. I did an ioscan with no results and checked the syslog: No entries.

 

I reboot the maschine and nothing new. I do not see the LUNs.

 

Do I need more software or patches? I use the AB378 FC controller and I installed the latest driver.

 

Thx
