Adding new disk, I can see using the CTD format but not on presistent

Hi All, 

I am using HPUX v.11.31 . Tried to add 3 new disks, the first 2 disks didn't have problem, but the third disk has problem.

The disks:

# ioscan -m dsf | grep disk41
/dev/rdisk/disk411       /dev/rdsk/c27t8d6
/dev/rdisk/disk412       /dev/rdsk/c27t8d7
/dev/rdisk/disk413       /dev/rdsk/c27t9d0

first 2 disks are ok, but not the 3rd disk (disk413).

# diskinfo /dev/rdsk/c27t9d0
SCSI describe of /dev/rdsk/c27t9d0:
             vendor: HITACHI
         product id: OPEN-V
               type: direct access
               size: 104857920 Kbytes
   bytes per sector: 512
# diskinfo /dev/rdisk/disk413
diskinfo: can't SIOC_INQUIRY /dev/rdisk/disk413: I/O error

Why using the peristent name failed? 

Thank you. 

Regards, 

Iwan Tamimi

Hi - have you tried using rmsf -H "hardware addresses to disk path" and then insf -eC disk ?

check diskinfo afterwards !

Hi Masghar, 

Thank you for the quick reply, but it is still failed to see. 

This is what I did: 

 ioscan -fnC disk
...
disk    410  0/6/1/0/4/1.235.0.128.0.9.0  sdisk   CLAIMED     DEVICE       HITACHI OPEN-V
                         /dev/dsk/c27t9d0   /dev/rdsk/c27t9d0
# rmsf -H 0/6/1/0/4/1.235.0.128.0.9.0
# ioscan -fnC disk
# insf -eC disk
# diskinfo /dev/rdsk/c27t9d0
SCSI describe of /dev/rdsk/c27t9d0:
             vendor: HITACHI
         product id: OPEN-V

# diskinfo /dev/rdisk/disk413
diskinfo: can't SIOC_INQUIRY /dev/rdisk/disk413: I/O error

Hi All, 

For the update, I log the case to HPE support.

 

They asked me whether I have powermt (from EMC) on my server. I checked, happened yes I had, but we don't use it anymore. He asked to remove it. 

I did this:

# powermt check
Warning: CLARiiON device path c27t9d0 is currently dead.
Do you want to remove it (y/n/a/q)? y

I deleted all the device. after that all my commands are OK. 

Thank you.
