1) I have a xp12000 installed and configured by someone.

Hi,
maybe the HP disk array config guide for HP-UX could help you:

Hi,
SVP is for HP but you could do it with CommandView
1 - from CV, select your array
2 - Choose Lun Management and Add path
3 - select port/scsi id /lun
4 - select the CU and the LDEV Id
5 - click set and add to confirm

for svp/remote it's quite the same, you had to go to Lun Management, next add scsi path, after that you could select port/scsi id /lun and the CU LDEV.

I agree with smatodor. The SVP (SerVice Processor) is only for use by HP service personnel. You can use the Remote Web Console (RWC) by pointing your browesr to the IP address of the SVP. Hopefully you have that IP. If not you will need to contact HP and they can help in getting it.

Otherwise, follow the procedure that smatodor had with a few other items. You'll need to be in "modify mode" by clicking on the picture of a pen in the upper right hand corner of the interface. Also if this is a new host to the XP, you'll need to create a host group with the pWWN of the host.

This procedure can be somewhat complex, and if your not sure what you're doing you may want to consider getting an XP consultant to give you some assistance.

Good luck,

Re: how to create a new LUN on xp12000 to be recognized by hpux host?

many thanks for you.

1) I will read LUN mananger of command view.
2) ports need to be changed, so some LUNs need to change their Ports?

3) how can I find the unused B4 in what manual of SVP ?
where can I bind the B4 into raid Group?

Re: how to create a new LUN on xp12000 to be recognized by hpux host?

2) ports need to be changed, so some LUNs need to change their ports? - You can use the "copy" feature by right clicking on the LUN and copying the info and then pasting it to the new port. When you are done, you can delete the old mapping (or leave it there if you need to) and the LUN will "migrate" to the new ports.

3) how can I find the unused B4 in what manual of SVP? - Not sure what you mean here. The "building blocks" of the XP are a called an Array Group (aka RAID Group, Parity Group, ECC Group). This is 4 HDDS. A grouping of Array Groups is a B4. It is determined by physical location with the array and is not changable.

Where can I bind the B4 into raid group? You can't - see above.

Hope this helps,

when you add the HP-UX host, please select the host mode option about ghost lun, otherwise there will be many LUN marked as 'disk subsystem' or something in ioscan output.
