All commands are hanging like which vim , whereis vim , which ll , glance .

whereas when we run the same thing from EVA storage any other mountpoint its absolutely fine .

P.S. This thread has been moved from Storage Area Networks (SAN) (Enterprise) to HP 3PAR StoreServ Storage. - HP Forum Moderator





Re: 3PAR snapshot mountpoint issue

* I am not sure what is vim, but the remaining commands you ran, suppossed to search on OS disk. shouldn't deal with the snapshot luns. Does this server is san boot one ?
* what is the model of 3par storage & which os version ?
* are you mounting the snap shot on same server, where the parent VV is presented and used ?
* how you are creating  snaps shot & how it has been presented?

We have p10400 with hpux11.31 with snap shots , running  perfect from last one year.   here with atatched the script which we used to create snap shot & mount it on  backup server.
Hope this can help you.

vim is an improved vi, possibly on /usr/local/bin/.

If any of these filesystems are in the user's PATH, then it may hang.
