Hi,

you must have CommandView on your box installed
and than you can use arm commands:
armdsp
armcopy - manages BC
armcfg
...

Hi

if you are really sure you want to delete a LUN it is

armcfg -L -d

will delete the LUN
vfpcfg should do the same

Re: VA direct access command

Currently the server can't access the VA. Do anyone have all the vfp command list or any where I can find the vfp command list that I can refer to. I have to access VA using VFP command the VA was hang.

Re: VA direct access command

Hi,

if you are connected through a serial cable you do not have access to the full command set.

However, whatever command is available through the OS and the serial line has an equivalent syntax:

armdsp <-> vfpdsp
armcfg <-> vfpcfg

Depending on the controller firmware you can also omit the vfp (or not).

If you are connected serially you should have a prompt like
READY>
or
WARNING>
then try
vfpdsp -?
dsp -?
