Re: How to install SCSI Ultra320 A6961-60011 on rp4440 to increase volume space.

I assume you have mirrored internal disks for vg00 (each is 300GB).


This should be MORE than enough for vg00!!!


Now you have a new SCSI controller installed.


Now what? You need some external disks to store your data!

Create another volume group on them!!!

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Re: How to install SCSI Ultra320 A6961-60011 on rp4440 to increase volume space.

What kind of disks did you connect? What chassis model?

Can you see them in ioscan?

Hope this helps!

Torsten.

Re: How to install SCSI Ultra320 A6961-60011 on rp4440 to increase volume space.

No disks visible.

>> in a COMPAQ StorageWorks

What model???

Like MSA30 or whatever.

Hope this helps!

Re: How to install SCSI Ultra320 A6961-60011 on rp4440 to increase volume space.

It looks almost like a MSA30, but I'm sure this is not supported with hp-ux.

Hope this helps!

Torsten.

Re: How to install SCSI Ultra320 A6961-60011 on rp4440 to increase volume space.

Interesting (but still unsupported).

How about

# mptconfig /dev/mpt3



I also wonder why the internal controller has ID 3 - I would adjust this back to ID 7!

Hope this helps!

Torsten.
