XP Raid Manager on vPar?

Hi, All,

Is it possible to run XP Raid Manager on a vPar (HP-UX 11.31)?

I tried to configure CA between a vPar and remote server (HP-UX 11.31) (not a vPar) and I recieved error "pairdisplay: [EX_ENORMT] No remote host alive for remote commands or Remote Raid Manager might be blocked (sleeping) on an existing I/O."

The other CA pair configured between to physical machines (HP-UX 11.31) works no problem.

I assigned CMD device and 4 LUNs to vPar with:
hpvmmodify -P vPar1HOSTA -a disk:avio_stor:disk:/dev/rdisk/disk11

xpinfo on vPar returns no output.

Thanks & Regards,
Yang

Re: XP Raid Manager on vPar?

When I look on your ioscan I'm sure this is HPVM, **NOT** vPars.

Please confirm.

Hope this helps!

Torsten.

Re: XP Raid Manager on vPar?

... and if this really a virtual machine, it cannot see the XP at all.

Not sure if this is supported on a VM or not (likely not supported at all), but I would try the CMD device without AVIO.

Hope this helps!

Torsten.

Re: XP Raid Manager on vPar?

Hi, Torsten,
You are right, it is a VM. I'll try to assign CMD device with scsi instead of avio and let you know the result.

Thanks.

Re: XP Raid Manager on vPar?

Torsten,

I assigned the CMD device and another two LUN's without avio_stor and it did not work.

Is there a workaround for VM? The reason that we want to run XP RM on a VM is that we use SYMCLI on VM to manage storage replication (BCV/SRDF) "automatically". We want to do the same for HP XP storage specially for the VM connected to both EMC Symmetrix and HP XP.

Regards,
Yang
