VA7410 Array

Finally I have received a 7410 after the fact that they are EOL and barely supported. So I connected directly, and wiped out the existing stuff, and formatted the disks. I am at square one.
1) Need directions to update the firmware from the array itself if possible.
2) unable to add LUN 0 from the array...
vfpcfg -L 0 -a 10M -g 1va7400 it responds back with invalid . Whats up?
3) I do have command view installed on hpux 11.11 but until i get LUN 0 created, its useless

Re: VA7410 Array

Try

cfg -L 0 -a 10M -g 1

from virtual front panel (serial).

Hope this helps!

Re: VA7410 Array

Maybe i need to be more clear...when I get onto the array I have a NO MAP> prompt. So from what i have read...the servers will not see the array or can do anything until I create a MAP(?).

Re: VA7410 Array

How many disks are installed?

Did you do a format?

Hope this helps!

Re: VA7410 Array

15 Disks. and Yes I did a fmt, however, yesterday late, I did a recover and it recovered the map, and i was able to create a LUN.
The hosts see the Lun when I directly attach the Array to the server, but via the san switch, they cant.

When direct attached, Commandview armdsp and other commands cannot see the array. but ioscan sees the controller and the lun.

the fcms utilities see the host HBA without issue. I keep diggin through the Forums, and make little progress.

As of this morning the array is now at the Ready> prompt.

Better to consult the manual.

You need to adjust the host ports, e.g. it is "hp-ux", "2Gb/s", "fabric".

Re: VA7410 Array

So now i do not really understand what is happening.
1) I have 997gb available for lun creation, but for some reason cannot create more than 2 Luns (cfg -L 3 -a 144G -g 1) it reports back insufficient space. I did a cfg -L 1 (2) -a 144GB -g 1 (2) and they worked.

2) Unable to see LUN 2 after creation. does not the -g option specifies which controller to present the lun through?
