EVA8400 sidSet command syntax

I want to change a shelf number to 9, what is the proper syntax for this command; sidSet? There is no help or examples...

Re: EVA8400 sidSet command syntax

You should not change this once the array is initialized ...


Hope this helps!

David.... since you work for HP... there are internal ways to get this information which is NOT public...

Hi Torsten,

 

I've tried the Syntax you've provided via the MFG port on a M6412 with no success

 

09a4:000c>sidSet Set Shelf ID 13
invalid_args

 

Can you confirm if thats the correct syntax please?

 

Many Thanks

Shaun

Better don't do this once the array is initialized...

Re: EVA8400 sidSet command syntax

I have here  a EVA4400 in my workshop. No data, not initialized and I would like to set the enclosure ID for a new use of the system.

I connected a MSA500/1000 serial cable, terminal setting 115200 Baud. "menu" gives a list of commands like....

 

sidSet       set shelf ID 0-99

 

The problem is that no combination of this command seems to work. (sidSet 0, sid Set=0 etc.) I always get an invalid argument error. Could someone tell me the correct syntax?

Re: EVA8400 sidSet command syntax

OK I found it myself... it's sidSet 0 0 (or sidSet 3 0)

 

I guess I have to type the number twice because there are 2 displays....? No just kidding but if someone could explain me what the second number means. I tried different combinations:

 

0 0 = ID 0

0 1 = ID 0

2 2 = ID 2

2 0 = ID 2

88 99 = ID 88

 

So the first number sets the ID and the second number seems not to have any influence.

Re: EVA8400 sidSet command syntax

Thanks for the update PDP... Mine also has no data and is uninitialized. This will just make life easier as currently the ID's are all over the place.
