Re: VA7400

Hi kamal
You can follow these procedure:
1. remove the old disk.
2. Waiting for the VA rebuil.
3. When REBUILD finish, plug the new one.
4. Waiting for the VA rebuild.
Note that: Never unplug 2 disks concurrenly!
For more information, please go to this site:
http://www.hp.com/support/va7400

I have some documentation but the size is too big that I can not attach.
You can give me email address, I will send to you.
Hope this helps and goodluck to you.

Re: VA7400

Oh....
I forgot: The VA only automatic rebuild if you set it.
In other case, you have to rebuild the VA manually.
There are two ways to do it: by command line and by CommmandView SDM.
But recommend by commandview sdm

Best and regard,

Re: VA7400

Hi Kamal

You can verify it: to check does the commandview sdm was installed on your system by "swlist" command.
If you have the result will like that:
"CMDVIEWSDM A.1.04.00 hp command view sdm "
The A.1.04.00 show you the version.
You can not see it because you do not install commandview sdm.
You have to buy this software! Not *FREE*.

Verry sorry because my internet speed. It too slow that I can not attach the document for you. :(
But you can go to this link, it will show you almost document relate to commandview sdm.

I just attach the small file and send it to your email.
Hope this helps

Re: VA7400

For HPUX you can use straight LVM alternate paths.

For windows systems you need autopath. The new versions of securepath include both the autopath drivers and the securepath drivers.

During the install you are asked if you want to install the autopath drivers.

autopath is the only driver that works with the va even though it's now marketed under the securepath name.
