Lighting up a faulty drive on a A3312 array

I was wondering if there was a command I could run to light up a faulty drive before I pull it out the array. The OS is HP-UX 11.00 i think. I was told there is but I can not find it anywhere.

Thanks for the help

Re: Lighting up a faulty drive on a A3312 array

this should work for your needs:

dd if=/dev/rdsk/cXtYdZ of=/dev/null bs=1024

start the dd command on a disk and then go and see which LED is lit.... you should be able to ID the disk you want this way. Since it is JBOD, I don't think anything else will work (like amutil or amdsp)

Re: Lighting up a faulty drive on a A3312 array

Hello Ryan,
as Ted replied Jamaica is a JBOD (Just a Bunch of Disks) and not 'intelligent' array so there are no special commands developed for it (like array* for AutoRAID, am* for FC60 or arm* for VA). To indicate/operate disk led you can use only built-in disk capabilities. If you are able to access disk from OS, use command Ted mentioned. If not, disassemble disk hardware path (to SCSI Id and HBA location) and inspect SCSI Ids at the rear of Jamaica
