ioscan -fn -> try with full scan
insf -e -> install special (device) files

ioscan -fnC disk
Problems are common to all, but attitude makes the difference

ioscan -f
insf -e

check in /dev/dsk if new devices have been created by
ls -lrt (last created)

If still its not recognised and these are SAN disk check zoning/masking,
if local disk or other reinsert the disk.

Hi All,
it is not indentified these disks via ioscan even though using comnmand insf -e,
but strangely, these disks can be seen in EFI with "map",thanks!

Are you suing the default SAS controller or a P400 Smart array?

Hope this helps!

So you *cannot* see them in ioscan!

Disks are under p400 control only.

Get the device file (e.g. ciss2) and do

# saconfig /dev/ciss2

# sautil /dev/ciss2

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Hi Torsten,
where should it use command as below, OS or EFI?
# saconfig /dev/ciss2

# sautil /dev/ciss2

From the OS, but use the right /dev/ciss_ file!


Once you have seen the disks, create some logical drives and you will see these LUNs from OS in ioscan.

Hope this helps!

Torsten.

BTW, I doubt if you can see them in EFI's map command ... ;-)

Hope this helps!

Hi Torsten,
Thanks for your reply,
-where to get right /dev/ciss_ file ?
-if it uses P400 card, it means if I add new disk, that will be under in p400 ?

Hi Torsten,
I only do one remote assistant diagnose with it, but it can not go to internet, so no ioscan is provided! Thanks!
