Shalom Arun,

The clarion system has a console where you can check what is assigned to what.

On an hpux server:

ioscan -fnC disk

This will show disks attached to the server.

Re: clarion disk array problem.

Hi,

If some LUNs were allocated from the storage to the server then in ioscan the same should be visible as NO_HW status when the storage is not available.

Hi Arun,

You can install Navicli command line tool to manage Clariion disks remotely. Download and install it. Also, # ioscan -fnC disk will help you.

Try,

Either using the Navisphere (via) http, but you need to install on your local PC

or

use navicli commands on the host

hi Arun,

You can see the disks with ioscan and through SAM you will be able to see the array, if its configured.

Re: clarion disk array problem.

Hi Arun,

If the EMC Powerpath software is used in the server, you could execute the following commands to display information about the conection clariion - server:

# powermt check ---- connection check
or
# powermt display [dev=all] ---- display information about luns and special files

The EMC Powerpath allows failover and load balancing in the connection to storage system.

In addition, errors conection are written to /var/adm/syslog/syslog.log
