SSSU_WIN32 Script and RSS DISK STATE=NONE

I have EVA6000. RSS DISK STATE is pointing to none after the drive was replaced.

It was replaced with the same drive but newer firmware version.

How do you find that disk.

Also How do you create a script file with SSSU_W32.

Re: SSSU_WIN32 Script and RSS DISK STATE=NONE

Looks like the EVA has screwed up its RSSes during the ungroup/re-group :-(

You need to find out which disk pair (adjacent even and odd RSSindex) is located in the same disk drive enclosure. I can do it easily if you get the output of the command:
SSSU> ls disk full XML
and attach it as a .TXT file.

> How do you create a script file with SSSU_W32.

Not sure what you are after...

- if you want to do a capture to create a script for recovery:
-- SSSU> capture configuration FILE.txt

- if you want to automate tasks - use a text editor to create a script, then feed it into SSSU like this:
C:\SSSU> sssu.exe < script.txt > script.log

-- sorry, if that sounds dumb/arrogant, but SSSU does not have a built-in editor and you question is a bit ambiguous to me

Re: SSSU_WIN32 Script and RSS DISK STATE=NONE

One more silly question.

How do you capture the response to a file?

Re: SSSU_WIN32 Script and RSS DISK STATE=NONE

Not a silly question at all.


SSSU> capture configuration FILE.txt

This creates one or more files that begin with "FILE" - I usually use the EVA's name, e.g.
SSSU> capture configuration EVA01P-config.txt

On a 'simple' EVA, this creates a file named "EVA01P-config_Step1A.txt".


C:\SSSU> sssu.exe < script.txt > script.log

Here, I am using the redirection feature of Window's CMD.EXE - the output is written to "script.log".

Sorry, I was talking about how to capture a input from SSSU> ls disk full XML

I have the configuration file that captured.

Re: SSSU_WIN32 Script and RSS DISK STATE=NONE

In that case it makes sense to run everything through one script:

- create a file similar to this, let its name be "LS_DISK.txt":
+------------------------------
|select manager SMGT username=administrator password=pwd
|select cell EVA
|ls disk full XML
|exit
+------------------------------

- run it:

SSSU.EXE < LS_DISK.txt > LS_DISK_out.txt

- the desired output is in the file "LS_DISK_out.txt"

Thanks for you help.

I got it. I am sending you the file

Re: SSSU_WIN32 Script and RSS DISK STATE=NONE

Very good. You have two disk pairs that prevent a mirrored state. Most easy thing is if you could move disk 06:13 to 07:14 and then 07:13 to 06:13 or so.

Re: SSSU_WIN32 Script and RSS DISK STATE=NONE

How did you check this?

Is there a utility i can use to figure this out?

Re: SSSU_WIN32 Script and RSS DISK STATE=NONE

It's a rather complex set of object definitions and API calls, not an easy-to-run utility. I can't share it, sorry.

Re: SSSU_WIN32 Script and RSS DISK STATE=NONE

I do not see 07:14. Is that a mistake?

----------------------------------------

the following RSS configurations prevent a 'mirror' state

RSSID=007 : 04 05
Encl:Bay 07:13 07:10
RSSID=009 : 00 01
Encl:Bay 06:13 06:10

(2 pairs reported)

Re: SSSU_WIN32 Script and RSS DISK STATE=NONE

Sorry if that was confusing - what I suggested was:

move the disk drive at position Enclosure=06:Bay=13 to the currently free bay at position Enclosure=07:Bay=14.

That fixes the first problem.

Then move the disk drive at position Enclosure=07:Bay=13 to the now-free bay at position Enclosure=06:Bay=13.
