DS2405 and HP-UX 11.31

Hi,
Is it possible to use an old DS2405 with a rx1600 and HP-UX 11.31. I can see it but I can't connect to the disk.

Thanks
Juergen

ioscan:
Class I H/W Path Driver S/W State H/W Type Description

# pvcreate /dev/rdsk/c5t0d0

Hi Jürgen,

isn't this the LUN 0 of a VA7410?

LUN 0 is usually never used for data!

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Shalom,

LUN0 is often if there is no disk presented mis-detected as a disk. It is not really a disk in this case it is the disk array itself, or the controller.

Hi,

Yes and no. DS2405 was part of the VA but also usable as JBOD. The device was running on the same machine same configuration without a problem. Now I updated to 11.31 and itâ s no longer working. Any idea?

Re: DS2405 and HP-UX 11.31

Your ioscan looks to me like a VA as mentioned before.

The LUN 0 is normally a very small LUN (~ 10 .. 20 MB) and not used. Do you have secure manager in use?

An ioscan for a "pure" DS2405 would look different:

ctl 0 1/0/9/0/0.8.0.255.0.15.0 sctl CLAIMED DEVICE HP
A6255A
/dev/rscsi/c0t15d0


This is the controller device, disks are shown as disks only:

disk 3 1/0/9/0/0.8.0.255.0.3.0 sdisk CLAIMED DEVICE HP
36.4GST336607FC
/dev/dsk/c0t3d0 /dev/rdsk/c0t3d0



You should install commandview sdm version 1.09.03 to get more information.

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Re: DS2405 and HP-UX 11.31

Hi, I don't use Secure Manager. I tried to format the device with JBODfmt -f
Result: com.hp.HpPanDev.SanDevice.DeviceException: Failed to open device:null

Re: DS2405 and HP-UX 11.31

If this is a VA (I think it is) the jbodfmt is the wrong command. Do you get some results from

# armdsp -i
# armdiscover
# armdsp -a

Hope this helps!

Torsten.

Re: DS2405 and HP-UX 11.31

Hi,
I followed the procedure you sent me. But still the same issue.
# armdiscover
Failed to obtain remote database interface to host: localhost
# armdsp -i
Error logging in: TIMEOUT EXPIRED
Maybe a network issue.
