Have I got space for a SCSI adaptor card ??

I'm looking at arranging the installation of an Ultrium 460 tape device into a RP7410 server running HPUX 11i.

My supplier has asked if I have space for the SCSI adaptor card (PCI Ultra 160 SCSI adaptor A6828A). This server is situated on the other side of the country. How can I tell if there is a spare slot available for this card ??

All help rewarded as usual.

Many Thanks
Simon

Hi
can you post ioscan -fn output?

Simon,
the rp7410 has 15 PCI hot-plug I/O card slots.

you can check if you are using all these slots.

Not very pretty I'm afraid !

Re: Have I got space for a SCSI adaptor card ??

Yes, you have several free PCI slots you can install an A6828A into. You can ID by;

ba 16 1/0/8 lba CLAIMED BUS_NEXUS Local PCI Bus Adapter (782)
ba 17 1/0/10 lba CLAIMED BUS_NEXUS Local PCI Bus Adapter (782)
ba 1 0/0/1 lba CLAIMED BUS_NEXUS Local PCI Bus Adapter (782)
ba 2 0/0/2 lba CLAIMED BUS_NEXUS Local PCI Bus Adapter (782)
ba 3 0/0/4 lba CLAIMED BUS_NEXUS Local PCI Bus Adapter (782)
ba 4 0/0/6 lba CLAIMED BUS_NEXUS Local PCI Bus Adapter (782)
And there is nothing on these paths, showing these slots are free.

Simon,

you have more than enough free slots:

ba 1 0/0/1 lba CLAIMED BUS_NEXUS Local PCI Bus Adapter (782)
ba 2 0/0/2 lba CLAIMED BUS_NEXUS Local PCI Bus Adapter (782)
ba 3 0/0/4 lba CLAIMED BUS_NEXUS Local PCI Bus Adapter (782)
ba 4 0/0/6 lba CLAIMED BUS_NEXUS Local PCI Bus Adapter (782)

also

1/0/8 or 1/0/10 could be used.

Re: Have I got space for a SCSI adaptor card ??

Simon,

On 11i systems you can use "rad -q" as it does not only present you with H/W paths but PHYSICAL PCI slots as well.

Nothing wrong with the other suggestions but this is a quick way to find out if you've got available PCI slots.
