Re: StorageWorks VA 7410

Hi halili,

do the following

#armdsp -i

this will give you the serial number of the array

after this do

#armdsp -a

this will give you all the information including capacity used.

Method 2:-
=================

on the HP-CDE issue the command

#launcher

this will enable the gui based interface for VA.ie; command view SDM.

Go to status then go to capacity. You will get a pie chart showing the capacity llocation

Re: StorageWorks VA 7410

Hi,
You can install Storage Device Manager (SDM) and launch this through SAM. You be able to monitor the status of VA7410 and its functionality as well as performance.

For monitoring usage you can simply use "bdf" command.
# bdf

EMS also a best montioring tool. You can view the EMS logs for details.

Hope that helps,
Regards,

You need to know a lot to actually know how little you know

WARNINGS

None
==================
All space in "Unallocated (Available for LUNs)" are free. You can create LUN on it.


another things you should consider:
LUN is term of VA. On OS it is pv. Before creating new LUN. check how much PE free on vg that contains LUN. If possible let create lv on that vg.

Re: StorageWorks VA 7410

Hi f. halili

OK, the most popular is by using Command View SDM because it is visible and you can see it in graphic mode (Of course you must run it in Xwindows). Just run command:
#export DISPLAY=:0.0
#launcher &

Or you can use CLI to view the VA's information.

For more detail, you can type #armdsp -?
Anyway, you can check all of the capacities usage with armdsp -a -r
Then search for this key word: CAPACITY USAGE
To check alias name, you can use armdsp -i to discover and Display the product number, serial number, alias name, unique name, World Wide Name, and device path of all disk arrays connected to the specified host

Hope this helps
