Dynamic Tracking Softwware


Hi Does anybody no if there is a method of providing Dynamic Tracking of Fibre Channel Devices within HP-UX .Or do you have too unconfigure FC storage device and adapter device instances before making changes on the SAN that might result in an N_Port ID (SCSI ID) change of any remote storage ports ?

I believe that with AIX if you enable Dynamic Tracking of FC Devices , the FC adapter driver will detect when the Fibre Channel N_Port ID of a device changes and then re-route
traffic destined for that device to the new address while the devices are
still online. Examples of events that can cause an N_Port ID to change are
moving a cable between a switch and storage device from one switch port to
another, connecting two separate switches via an Inter-Switch Link (ISL),and possibly rebooting a switch.
