Re: configure SAN Storage in HP-UX Server

For the server the LUN is just like any other disk - the important steps of configuration are done on the array side.

Hope this helps!

Re: configure SAN Storage in HP-UX Server

Depending upon the storage, create the LUN's and present to the HP-UX host from the array side.

After the LUN presentation, from HP-UX run the below commands to detect the new LUN's.

# ioscan -fnC disk

# insf -e
