VA 7110

Hi all,
I am new to this storage area.
VA 7110. 15 hard drives each of 34 GB space.

Present problem is, only one drive is unavailable.

armdsp output as follows,

root@pbup1s>/ # armdsp -t VA7110

In the above you can see the 10 is not active.

I am getting a warning message as:

WARNING: The host indicated that hot spare space reservation was desired, but th
e space left unallocated was insufficient to provide the reservation.

In the web it shows a warning status and when i click on Array status it shows the following

Overall Array State: Warning

Warning States : Active HOT Spare Unavailable
Informational States: Disk Scrubbing In Progress
Redundancy Level : 1 drive
Secure Manager : Disabled.

I dont know from when it has happened.

I checked the physical status. The 10 drive is in amber color.

Help me

Thanks

Re: VA 7110

Hi,

check with

# armdsp -a
and
# armrbld -p

Your disk M/D10 is probably bad and needs replacement.




Consider to close your duplicated thread.

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Re: VA 7110

/ # armrbld -p VA7110
Rebuild status:
Vendor ID = HP
Product ID = A6189B
Rebuild progress = No rebuild in progress

Auto Rebuild is = ENABLED
Rebuild priority is = HIGH

The array is not currently rebuilding.

How would i know what is the configuration done in all disk. Can anyone let me know the command. for example

Disk 1 --> data
Disk 2 ---> parity
Disk 3 ---> spare

Can i get above kind of details. Any command in brief.

Can anyone know how to browse into the Management console of my VA7110 SAN box.

Thanks

Re: VA 7110

Hi GV,
The Drive @ location M/D10 is out and is not even listed.

Couple of things you could do here:

1) Reseat the drive and wait for a min, re-run the armdsp command and look for the drive.

2) replace the hard drive and since Auto rebuild and Autoformat are 'on' they should get the drive active.

Re: VA 7110

The RAID level is
RAID Level:___________________________RAID1+0

so it is what you call the Magical Value, where you get high performance with great redundancy;

Replace the Drive 10 and you should be OK!

Re: VA 7110

Reset means do you want me do it physically taking it out and press it again.

I have already ordered new disk with HP. Will wait till that time.

Is that safe if I remove that particular 10th disk and push again ? Wont it affect any other disk?

Thanks

Re: VA 7110

Hi,
it's a 'Re-Seat', you could definitely reseat the drive since

1) There are no rebuilds queued up this time.
2) The Drive is not a part of the array yet.

However, since you have already ordered the drive, I'd suggest waiting for the replacement.

Shiva

Re: VA 7110

I just pulled it and pushed it again. Its back to green. I have attached the armdsp -a. Let me know whats this status is showing.

When i asked hp they said its in balancing state. They asking us to wait for some time to complete this balancing state. What is your suggestions.

I am keeping the spare hard disk delivered from hp to hold.

Thanks

Re: VA 7110

LOL!

The disk is back and functional. You rather keep an eye on the drive for a couple'o days or a week. If it fails again replace the drive and send it back.

Or better, wait for the balancing to complete remove the drive and replace the new one to avoid issues.

I would never like my array doin a balancing act everyday :)

Re: VA 7110

Hi,
The Logs look clean (for now!).
Remember! If you find amber light on the drive again, go ahead and replace it. Otherwise you'r OK.

Re: VA 7110

Thank you so much.
I wish to do something more than this.

I have database server in which the drives are mounted on this VA7110. One of the path is 98% i wish to extend this. Do you know the procedure. I wish to know the following,

1. How much free space available on my SAN.
2. How can use that free space to that 98% drive path,

I am attaching that bdf details below.

This is critical prodution server. Have you ever did this before.

Bdf as follows,

/dev/vg00/lvol3 1540096 1436200 103096 93% /
/dev/vg00/lvol1 497584 89168 358656 20% /stand

/dev/vg01/lvol6 4096000 2042896 1924848 51% /pdwp1pkg/u06

You can see one drive path is 98%. I wish to extend this using the available free space in SAN.

Hi,

 

/dev/vg01/lvol3 11980800 11733464 239610 98% /pdwp1pkg/u04

 

You can check the free space in VG vg01 by considering the Free PE counts. Then you can extend the LV /dev/vg01/lvol3 with available free space and then do fsadm on mount point to extend it.

 

Post the below output to know your available free space.

 

#vgdisplay -v vg01
