Hi Storage Exterts,

We migrated one VA7410 from one server to another. The new server loaded with latest commandView SDM. But unable to sense in armdsp. However i am able to use the LUNs preconfigured in the old server.The commandView SDM vesion as below.

:; swlist |grep -i Storage
B6960MA A.05.10 HP OpenView Storage Data Protector
CMDVIEWSDM 1.09.01.%0184 HP StorageWorks Command View VA
HPvmsa B.03.20.1 HP VERITAS Volume Manager Storage Administrator
: root@ahsvrf02 [ ta] /var/opt/scripts/VA_CV_SDM ;


; uname -a
HP-UX ahsvrf02 B.11.11 U 9000/800 2184406575 unlimited-user license
: root@ahsvrf02 [ ta] /var/opt/scripts/VA_CV_SDM ;


Can anyone please guide me how to proceed.

Thanks in advance

Re: VA7410 not visible in armdsp

What about

armdiscover -h ahsvrf02

I had several problems with commandview, it was mostly solved by reinstalling (remove / install) commandview. I know this is a strange solution

Re: VA7410 not visible in armdsp

Please check your swinstall logfile for errors and warnings.
I solved the issue once by increasing the kernel parameter "max_thread_proc" from 64 to 256 like indicated in the warning message.

Hope this helps!

Re: VA7410 not visible in armdsp

Check the value of the given kernel parameter and check the file

/etc/opt/sanmgr/hostagent/config/commIpAddr.txt

for the IP-address.

Hope this helps!

Torsten.

Re: VA7410 not visible in armdsp

Hi Manoj,
Check whether the new server is able to sense LUN0 of VA in ioscan. This is must for finding array with armdiscover command.

Re: VA7410 not visible in armdsp

Hi,

The LUNs are showing in ioscan since it was already configured with old server. Also the filesystems are mounted.

The kernal parametre is already 256

the /etc/opt/sanmgr/hostagent/config/commIpAddr.txt is with some other IP. I just added my IP and done a dial stop and start then armdiscover. but the error is same.
