How to mount new Storage to a HP-UX 11.0 cluster

Hi all,

we´ve got a new storage, an Infortend S24F.
It can be seen with "fcsmutil",
but is not identified as "disk" with ioscan
-------------------------------
root:/> fcmsutil /dev/td0 get remote all

Target N_Port_id is = 0x060d00
Target state = DVS_UNOPENED
Symbolic Name = IFT S24F-R1840-4 373R
Port Type = N_PORT
Target Port World Wide Name =0x220000d02307f4fa
Target Node World Wide Name =0x200000d02307f4fa

Common Service parameters (all values shown in hex):

-------------------------------------------------------------

root>ioscan -fn

ext_bus 9 0/1/0/0.6.13.255.0 fcpdev CLAIMED INTERFACE FCP Device Interface


In comparison to that, our "old" SUN-Storage is displayed:
root>ioscan -fn

ext_bus 8 0/1/0/0.6.4.255.0 fcpdev CLAIMED INTERFACE FCP Device Interface
target 7 0/1/0/0.6.4.255.0.0 tgt CLAIMED DEVICE

What do I have to do?

Re: How to mount new Storage to a HP-UX 11.0 cluster

hi,

did you add a new fc card and reboot the system? or just re-use a card installed?

if you havent rebooted the system to pick up the new storage did you do a insf command?

#insf -e
or
#insf -H (hardware paths)

and on the storage update the wwid numbers accordingly

Re: How to mount new Storage to a HP-UX 11.0 cluster

Hi Andy,

we used the old fc card and only replaced the storage. We also rebooted the system. I can see the path to the Infortrend, but I could not use it as a disk. The main problem is, that my Infortrend storage cannot see the wwn of my fc card. I think it is a configuration issue of my Infortrend storage and the old UNIX based HP-UX. But I have no clue where to start.

Bye,

Michael

Re: How to mount new Storage to a HP-UX 11.0 cluster

hi,

I do not know much about the infotend arrays, but is it actually supported on hpux 11.00

It might help you to go through this doc, if you havent seen it yet.

http://www.infortrend.com/doc/appNote/App%20Note_EonStor%20in%20HP-UX.pdf

you may also get more help from the HPUX sys admin forum

Hi Andy,
thank you for the manual - I didn`t know it.
Unfortunately it doesn't help me much, because we don't have Veritas.

Can you detect the Storage Array within HP-UX?

If yes, then the FC is talking to it properly and the issues is more likely configuration on the array.
