Hello @Hector1988,

Please check you have network connectivity between the 3PAR and SSMC host (VM). Make sure there is physical network connectivity, management ports are intact and IPs of the management port and SSMC host are able to communicate.

Then try:

• In SSMC login screen, Select the Administrator Console check box.
• Enter the SSMC administrator username and password and login
(This is different than SSMC main console credentials)
• Select the system you want to connect.
• Go to the Actions menu and select ‘Connect’.

Hello @Hector1988,

What is the version of SSMC? What is the current 3PAR OS version and patches installed in the 3PAR system?

Hello @sbhat09

i have another 3PAR with same version and connect to same SSMC without problem.

could you please give ullistration for the follwoing errors:

showsys: Error: Could not find request handler: EAIPC_NOPHANDLE       --no phandle is available or found

What does this mean?

Thanks.

Re: 3par error from SSH in response to any command

Hello @Hector1988,

Thanks for the details.

Root cause for the issue is at OS processes level. As per one of the instances I came across, the 'cachesvr' process is stuck in an infinite loop. The procedure to terminate the process is a critical operation. It is not advisable to perform over the instructions here without complete diagnosis. So, I recommend you to contact HPE support.

In another instance of this error, it fixed with OS upgrade (For 3PAR 7000 - 3.2.2MU6 with P119, for 3PAR 8000 - 3.3.1).

So, check if you want to go for OS upgrade or report it to HPE support.

Re: 3par error from SSH in response to any command

Hello @Hector1988,

If it is fine for your 3PAR array to go offline for sometime, you can try the system reboot. Both the nodes will go offline and reboot together. If there are no connected hosts and no data that shouldn't be a problem.

The command is 'shutdownsys reboot'. Then 'yes' in the next prompt.

Re: 3par error from SSH in response to any command

Hello @sbhat09 

thanks for your helpful support,

i tried "shutdownsys reboot" command, but like other commands, the 3par reject this command too with same error.

Could not find request handler: EAIPC_NOPHANDLE       --no phandle is available or found

do you have any suggestion to kill 'cachesvr' process directly?

many Thanks.
