L2000 won't recognize disk

Hi,
I've got an HP L2000 in which one disk failed over.
It was a A7285A, SEAGATE ST373307LC, 73G 10RPM LVD. I replaced it by a MAP3735NC which one comes from a PROLIANT DL380 server.
The disk is not recognized in ioscan even if the front led is green.
It's the same size, same speed both LVD.... I don't anderstand why this disk is not seen in an HP server but is OK in a proliant one.
Thanks to anyone who have the solution !!!

Re: L2000 won't recognize disk

The odds are very high that this "new" disk contains no HP firmware & that's why it's not recognized.
HP disks - especially boot disks - almost always have to contain HP FW to work correctly in the HP-UX world.

Rgds,

Hi

I agree with Jeff looks like this disk is not supported because of the firmware and maybe that is the reason why it is not able to see the disk.

Re: L2000 won't recognize disk

Did you do an "ioscan -fnC" disk and see if it shows up as a device? If you know the path, do a /etc/diskinfo /dev/rdsk/cXtXdX to see if what it reports back.

Re: L2000 won't recognize disk

yes I did an ioscan but the disk is not seen and there's no device in /dev/rdsk.
But I had got the same problem with an HP disk which I try to setup in an PROLIANT3000.
I thinks it's a problem of firmware, so you can't switch Hp disks into COMPAQ.

You need to use the insf command to create the device file once it shows up in ioscan. Make sure you ioscan with "ioscan -fnC disk" and not "ioscan -funC disk" which will just read kernel memory.
