Snapclone and Linux Redhat V3

Our SAN configruration is based on EVA5000 and we have HP DL380 server with Linux RedHat V4 and we present a SAN vdisk for it. We are creating a snapclone and snapshot for the original vdisk. When we present the last 2 vdisks to HP DL380 with Linux RedHat V3 , the server accepts to mount only the snapshot vdisk. Can anyone know the solution for this problem.

Shalom Ashraf,

Many Unix/Linux servers do not fully recognize presented SAN disks without a full reboot.

Is it possible to reboot the server and see if the server then see's both vdisk's?

Salam Steven, ( If you really believes in Peace with us)

I am always rebooting the server to mount any new disk and after that, I run:

1- hp_rescan -a (Just to be sure that the FC is connected)
2- df -k (to check the mounted disks and always founding the local disks only)
3- mount -t ext3 /dev/sd? /disk-name (accept only the original san vdisk or Snapclone)


Thanks.

Re: Snapclone and Linux Redhat V3

What is the error that you get? Do you see the devices using fdisk -l? Are the devices correctly presented?
