How to locate IO Cards Slot on rp8400

Hi, we have to identify certain lan interface cards on the back of some rp8400 servers, each configured with 3 nPars on 3 cells (2 cabinets, one for IO extension).

Once I got the hardware path of the interface I'm interested in, how do I get the physical slot on the IO chassis?

I've used parstatus and CM section of MP without succes. Thank you for your help, regards.

# olrad -q

Hope this helps!

Hi Tiziano,

Besides
rad -q
olrad -q
you can go into the partition manager & there's a button/tab there that will light up an LED to specifically donote the card.
Export your display & run
/opt/parmgr/bin/parmgr &
Then pick your partition & drill down into the cell & IO chassis to find it.

HTH,
Jeff

Hi,

u pls issue the rad -q which will give the physical slot number

slot path
0-1-3-3 2/0/3/0 24 33 On Yes No Yes


From number below the path u can find

Cell - 2
SBA - 0
LBA - 3
Deivce - 0

Behind the iochassis u will find the sticker pasted LBA/SBA on the slot from there u can point out the Devices

Re: How to locate IO Cards Slot on rp8400

Might be easier to use the first value - 0-1-3-3 - which points to
0 cabinet
1 cell
3 chassis
3 slot

Re: How to locate IO Cards Slot on rp8400

Thank you, you was spot on. I had only this issue:

olrad -q
olrad:ERROR:Command only for internal use

But "rad" worked fine.

Re: How to locate IO Cards Slot on rp8400

"olrad" was the command name on 11.11. "rad" was introduced with superior functionality in 11.23.

You did not mention your HP-UX version, so Jeff gave you both forms.

Re: How to locate IO Cards Slot on rp8400

I am in a 11.11 environment so "olrad" is already not working.
I was referring to Torsten post having him written only the olrad option.
Thank you again, problem addressed!
Regards.
