Re: SCSI: Async Write Error

Hi Ameena,

It seems you have problem in SAN .To isolate the problem
Check for N0_HW in ioscan
check the event.log(/var/opt/resmon/log/event.log)
check the HBA status
ioscan -fnC fc
fcmsutil

Thanks!

Re: SCSI: Async Write Error

Hi Johnson


I have checked the ioscan output and also checked the HBA status. It is working fine.
Actually we have 4 fc HBA cards all are 2 GB 2 ports FC cards, But only one port is connected on each FC Card.

Re: SCSI: Async Write Error

Hi Ameena,
Is that error still comming in syslog?

You may need to identify the disk by

>>SCSI: Async write error -- dev: b 31 0x699000, errno: 13, resid: 1024,
blkno: 13406, sectno: 26812, offset: 13727744, bcount: 1024.

ls -l /dev/dsk/ |grep 0x699000



and do a pvdisplay to identify the vg
then check the pv status in the vgdisplay


If it is available check in the SAN side for the root cause

Thanks!!

Re: SCSI: Async Write Error

Hi,

For me it looks you FC connectivity problem.
All paths from one particular FC card should have failed and because of that i/o is rerouted to the other available path.

You need to check the fc cards, fc connectivity, SAN switch port to confirm both HBA is able to access the luns.
Best wishes,

Ganesh.

Re: SCSI: Async Write Error

check the output of

# fcmsutil /dev/fcd0
# fcmsutil /dev/fcd1
# fcmsutil /dev/fcd2
# fcmsutil /dev/fcd3

If there is a line like:

Driver state = AWAITING_LINK_UP

then something is wrong either with the card or with the FC switch, XP box or port...
Check the cable if there is light on both ends...

Re: SCSI: Async Write Error

You can also check with cstm if you see any problems with your FC cards:

# cstm
cstm> map all
cstm> sel dev ;info
cstm> il
