search all disks

Hi!
Is there any analog of search PDC command on pa-risc in itanium EFI?

The best that i've found is:
reconnect -r
from efi shell

Thanks.

Re: search all disks

Hello Victor,

reconnect -r is a good choise. On the cellbased system (rx7620,rx8620 and Superdome) the command "search all" is also available at the EFI prompt.

Re: search all disks

Thanks for your response!
May be can explain to me one more question about EFI?
In what the way the EFI hardware device path is converted to the HPUX one for rx2600. In particular:

disk 1 0/1/1/0.0.0 sdisk CLAIMED DEVICE HP 73.4GMAS3735NC
Acpi(000222F0,100)/Pci(1|0)/Scsi(Pun0,Lun0)/HD(Part1,Sig0BE1238A-3172-11D9-8002-D6217B60E588)/\EFI\HPUX\HPUX.EFI

How the string "Acpi(000222F0,100)/Pci(1|0)/Scsi(Pun0,Lun0)" is converted to this one "0/1/1/0.0.0"

Thanks.

Re: search all disks

Hello Victor,
this is not that easy, because for the first part "Acpi(000222F0,100)" you need a small table - see below. This part reflects the first two characters "0/1". All other characters are in the string.

Your Example:
Acpi(000222F0,100)/Pci(1|0)/Scsi(Pun0,Lun0)
Acpi(000222F0,100) = 0/1
PCI(1|0) = 1/0
SCSI(Pun0,Lun0) = 0.0
Summary = 0/1/1/0.0.0

Second Example:
ACPI(000222F0,200)/PCI(1|0)/SCSI(Lun5,Pun0)
ACPI(000222F0,200) = 0/2
PCI(1|0) = 1/0
SCSI(Pun5,Lun0) = 5.0
Summary = 0/2/1/0.5.0

Table:
ACPI(000222F0,0) = 0/0
ACPI(000222F0,100) = 0/1
ACPI(000222F0,200) = 0/2
ACPI(000222F0,300) = 0/3
ACPI(000222F0,400) = 0/4
ACPI(000222F0,600) = 0/5
ACPI(000222F0,700) = 0/6

Hope this helps,
Udo

Re: search all disks

This table is really great!

That is I looked for.

May be there is any white paper or document that describes stuff?

Re: search all disks

Is this an erratum ore not:
ACPI(000222F0,600) = 0/5

Re: search all disks

This is not an error, the table is correct! Don't ask me why the developers did this strange one ;-)!

Re: search all disks

Thanks a lot, Udo!

Maybe the last question?
Can this table be applied to all non cell-based rx servers or to rx2600 only?

Re: search all disks

Oh no Victor! I expected that question, but I'm sorry to say, that this table is for rx2600 only. Developers don't make things that easy as I said! :-)

Re: search all disks

Oh no...

HP does the word more and more complicated...

Thanks a lot, Udo, once again.
