Splindle sizes & RAID config

Hi All,

Is there a way(command syntax) that one could use to determine the spindle sizes & RAID configuration a HP server has been configured with?

Thanks in advance.

Re: Splindle sizes & RAID config

errrr

What do you mean. If you are using LVM then the LUN/disk can be displayed if you do pvdisplay /dev/dsk/????, or diskinfo /dev/rdsk/????

If that device is actually a LUN (e.g. it is on an intelegent disk subsystem) then you would need to use the array contoller software. Thus what is the array you are attached to. here are some commands I know of, but they are sub-system SPECIFIC...

armdsp -a # VA7xxx
arraydsp -a # AutoRAID
amdsp -a # FC60

Regards

Tim

Re: Splindle sizes & RAID config

Hi,

The server is connected to a XP256 storage array. PV/LV display doesn't display RAID information but extent sizes; stripe sizes etc?

Thanks in advance!

Re: Splindle sizes & RAID config

I guess you woul dneed to use the controlling software that you have for the RAID array. If it is an XP, then do it from hte PC station, ohterwise you may be able to use device specific commands for hte XP

Re: Splindle sizes & RAID config

The XP256 if I am not mistaken is the rebadged Hitachi 7700. If you have access/administering the array box -- then it shoul dhave come with a software called Hi-Track or LUn Manager (whatever it's HP OEM version called..). The interfaces are all GUI based and pretty much intutive...

There were later tools -- xpinfo?? that is supposed to give you more information from the host side but I have never used it yet... It should be here somewhere in this forums as an attachment submitted by one or 2 users.. just search for "xpinfo"

Re: Splindle sizes & RAID config

Here are some XP "HORCM" commands:

raidqry -l
xpinfo -i

Poke around with these. (man, whereis, etc.)

You can also get this info from "LUN Manager" on the control station, I think.

Re: Splindle sizes & RAID config

Hi All,

Thanks for the info. I was able to obain data for RAID set-up using the "xpinfo -r" command, but I still dont have data pertaining to spindle sizes.

Any ideas?
