drd status option doesn't exist

Hi,
Hi Have a rx2660 server with HP-UX version B.11.23.
The optin "status" of command DRD doesnt exist on my system:

# /opt/drd/bin/drd status
ERROR: Invalid command line:
- Major mode "status" not recognized. Use "drd -?" to list valid
major modes.
#
# drd -?
Usage:



drd [[-] -?]
drd clone [options]
drd mount [options]
drd umount [options]
drd runcmd [options]
drd activate [options]
drd deactivate [options]



Use "drd -?" to see which options apply to a specific



Use "drd - -?" (e.g. "drd -x -?") to get a
description of options that have arguments

How is this possible? How do I solve this problems?

Thanks,
Gonçalo

Re: drd status option doesn't exist

What is the version of DRD?
You probably need to download the latest version from software.hp.com

Re: drd status option doesn't exist

Hi Goncalo,

Have you created a drd clone already ? Coz drd status command works only if you have created a drd clone of your disk.

You can create a drd clone of your disk with the following command.

#drd clone -t /dev/dsk/cxtxdx

Here cxtxdx will be the target disk which will be your clone disk.

Once this is done you may run the drd status command and check...

Re: drd status option doesn't exist

Hi melvyn ,

Don't know what's the version of my DRD. However, I tryed to update and it failed, because it already had the latest updates.

But the file unsafe_patch_list, was necessary update. After that, the optios "status" appeared in drd -?.

Re: drd status option doesn't exist

check......
#/opt/drd/bin/drd status

#/opt/drd/bin/drd mount


download latest drd_unsafe_patch_list file from itrc.com and update it to clone disk /etc/opt/drd/drd_unsafe_patch_list.


than check
whether it will work or not?
