Array replaced - still asking for old array S/N

We had an autoraid go bad. It is supposed to be hot swappable, however. After putting the new disk in, it is still giving messages saying the old s/n is missing.
What commands do we use to get it to forget about the old array id and take in the new one?

Re: Array replaced - still asking for old array S/N

If it's just a new disk you put in you must include it to the array.

It only autoincludes if the disk was not previously used.
arraycfg -i -a

See the man, 'cos it's been a while since I used that command..

You can also do it via the SAM gui or via the control pannel under disk changes, include disk.

Issue an arraydsp -a to verify its included/.

Later,
Bill

It works for me (tm)

Hi,

If this is a fibre channel array you'll need to use the fcmsutil utilities - specifically
fcmsutil /dev/tdX replace_dsk remote-N-Port-ID
where X=the td instance # & the ID of the drive.
do a man fcmsutil for further details.

HTH,
Jeff

Hello,

Have you stopped/started the array daemon?


Check out man arraymgr also and look at the -s option.

Hope this helps
