FC disk system 2405 (A6250A)

Hi,

I have attached an fiber disk array 2405 to an Nclass running 11.23 HPUX. When I do an ioscan I can see all of my disk. 3 disk have 512 sectors and the rest have 520 sectors. How can I format the rest of the disk to have 512 sectors? I have loaded commandview but I am haveing trouble running it to see if I can do it that way.

Thank you
Jon

You need to use mediainit command.

Hi Jon,

the DS2405 was either used standalone or as an extension of the VA7xx0 virtual array.

When used with a VA, all the disk were formatted with 520 blocks - not usable in stand alone.


A good option is to install command view SDM (the VA7xx0 management software; available at hp.com/go/bsc ) and use the format option in "cvui" to format the disks back to 512 blocks.

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.
