HP-UX 11.31 ioscan not showing disks from MSA storage

Hello all,

 

I have a problem with an itanium rx2660 running hpux 11.31. This server is connected to a storage, on which I've cut 16 disks of 200Gb each. These disks where shown as block devices in /dev/disk folder. I can also see them when when I'm executing ioscan -m lun, but they are not shown when I'm executing ioscan -fnC disk. I cannot understand why this is happening and if this is an expected behavior.

 

I also want to use these 200Gb disks to pvcreate and vgcreate them in order to use them in a volume group. Can I use them with the current situation?

 

Thanks a lot in advance for any response

Vasilis

connect to the P2000 via ssh (manage/!manage) and do

# show hosts

What is listed in the profile column for your host?

Must be "HP-UX", "standard" is wrong!

 

Example:

 

# show hosts
Host ID           Name         Discovered Mapped Profile Host Type
-------------------------------------------------------------------
50014312345678  Server1_HBA1a  No         Yes    HP-UX   FC 

 

# show volume-maps
...

Mapping:
   Ports        LUN   Access       Host-Port-Identifier Nickname     Profile  
   ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
   A1,A2,B1,B2  0     read-write   50014312345678  Server1_HBA1a  HP-UX           


Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Hello Torsten,

 

    The profile is actually standard but I do not know how to change it. Can you please advise?

 

Thanks a lot

From P2000 CLI do:

 

# set host-name id <WWN_of_HBA> profile hp-ux <host-alias>

 

This can be only made from CLI, not from web frontend.


Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Worked fine, I did it from the web interface though.  Thanks a lot for your support.
