Cell status check?

Hi all
Glad to give my thread.
I have serious problem on rx8640
Problem is I have installed fc card to use san disks, but one of fc cards are not shown,
and physical memory has installed cell 1 , but
total memory was not changed, it is same size before installing physical memory,
can you tell me what is the problem.
I have tried to show the memory cell 1 but
only cell 0 is detected and shown.
how can I switch cell 0 to cell 1.
rx8640 box has led cell0,1 which is blinking.
but I think one of my cells is down, maybe cell 1
can you tell me which way total cell status are running ok?

Hi,

Well a good start would be to check that cell is part of the partition.

What's the output of:

parstatus

There are few command, we usually used.

Re: Cell status check?

Did you run parmodify with options to add the new cell to the host then shutdown -R to modify the Npar?

also, I am assuming that you have the proper drivers loaded for the FC?

Unix, the other white meat.

Re: Cell status check?

depending on the type of fc card you use, i would expect the newer card will need the fcd driver whereas the older ones are using td driver.

using parmodify -a to add all 8 cells to
partition 0 and then rebooting (shutdown -R)
