CVSDM 1.07 cannot start diald daemon

Hi,

On RP4440 installed CVSDM and connected to
VA7110 directly (PRIVATE_LOOP).
armdiscover always reports dial daemon not
running.
HA_Dial_Start, says daild started, but
daild is not running.
If I try to start diald manually,
Illegal Instruction coredump.
armdsp - reports no devices.
System ioscan able to see the array LUNs.

Removed and reinstalled, insf -e ...
No luck.
I have already post this Storage/SAN.
I feel here more users are here.

Moderators, please let the thread be here for
some time!!

Thanks in advance.

Re: CVSDM 1.07 cannot start diald daemon

Hi,

1)I guess your DeviceDBFile is corrupted. Try removing the file first, then run 'armdiscover' again.

2)There is a array startup script in /sbin/init.d/ location, but I forget the exact file ( ./arraymgr or./sanarray??). You have to find the file, I was able to overcome the same situation by stoping-starting that service from /sbin/init.d/????.

3)Lastly, you can reboot the machine and see whether armdsp can see the array.

Hi,

DeviceDBFile - removed and tried.
Rebooted several times!!
ps -ef | grep dial doesn't list diald.
When ever I try to start diald a core file
created /opt/sanmgr/hostagent/sbin

Any other clue?

Thanks and Regards

Hi again, there is a VA's controller firmware dependecy issue with cvsdm 1.07 but it is on VA7400 with cvsdm 1.07. But still you can check it.

Re: CVSDM 1.07 cannot start diald daemon

Can you check /etc/rc.log file if hostagent started successfully.

Regarding the core file, you can debug it by q4 utility by yourself or send it to HP for analyzing it.

Yes!
I have a rp4440 with a VA7110 directly connected.

It is on HP-UX 11i, with GOLDBASE+GOLDAPPS patch bundles from Dec. 2003, and HWEnable11i bundle also from Dec. 2003.

HP support confirmed that there is a system bug and asked me to apply the patch: PHKL_30038 to fix the problem.
