Re: add a second boot hdd

>> Folks i have a HP disk system 2405 running with 8 hdd and the hdd of the position 7 is bad, how do i replace it because it is mirroring with the one disk on the position 8.


Opening several threads about a single topic is always confusing.

If you are sure you already found the bad disks, follow the steps from the manual.

Since this is a direct fibre attached disk there is something special.


After you replaced the disk, the new disk is still shown as "NO_HW" in ioscan, because the driver does not allow access.

After this ioscan was run, look into the syslog.log file.

You will find the advise to run fcmsutil against nport ID 0x____ as follows (find the FC HBA device like td0 from your ioscan first:

# fcmsutil /dev/td0 replace_dsk 0x____

then run ioscan again, the disk now should be CLAIMED again.

Hope this helps!
