Re: Connecting to HSZ80/HSG80 controller from terminal

If you have the unsupported then
SET HOST/SCSI works

See

Re: Connecting to HSZ80/HSG80 controller from terminal

$ SET HOST /DUP is for HSC type arrays, not SCSI.

Have you considered hooking up a terminal line? Connect that to a real terminal, Windows Hyperterm, or a recent PuTTY with serial line support.
For and OpenVMS box you can connect that terminal line to its serial lines and use something like:

$ set term tta0:/spee=19200/perm
$ set host /dte tta0:


Now you can also come in over the fibre channel. On OpenVMS you would look for GG devices, and run MSA_UTIL (MSA$UTIL)
That could look like:

$ show dev gg/ful
Device $1$GGA101:, device type HP MSA CONTROLLER, is online, shareable.
:


MSA> set controller $1$GGA101:
MSA> show this


You may want to check out your devices with something like
$ mcr sysman io auto/log

You may want to be more specific about Platform, OS version, Configuration. HSZ or HSG, and so on for better help.

Hope this helps some,
Hein.

Open VMS 8.2, Alpha Es40, Connected through fibre HBS --> Fibre switch to HSZ80

Re: Connecting to HSZ80/HSG80 controller from terminal

8.2 ... yuck. Why would anyone run 8.2 on an Alpha?

>> Fibre switch to HSZ80

Either an innocent typo, or a miracle.

HSZ's are connected with classinc SCSI cables with the 68 pin connectors, not fibre.

What does SHOW DEV GG and/or show dev DG show?

Re: Connecting to HSZ80/HSG80 controller from terminal

There is no SET HOST/HSG type program.

You can use MSA_UTIL (MSA$UTIL) or you need to use the serial connection on the HSG80. If you connect a serial cable from that port to a serial port on your Alpha or to a DECserver serial port, you could use SET HOST/DTE or SET HOST/LAT from a DECterm on your alpha to access the HSG80 serial console.

Re: Connecting to HSZ80/HSG80 controller from terminal

The MSA utility can be found in SYS$ETC
This is documented in the somewhat dated

Installation Guide - hp StorageWorks
Modular Smart Array 1000 (MSA1000)
Fifth Edition (September 2003)
Part Number: 254092-005

ftp://ftp.compaq.com/pub/products/storageworks/techdoc/msa1000/254092-005.pdf

check out:

Chapter 5 : Configuration Procedures for OpenVMS Environments


So did you run autoconfigure?
Can you see GG and DG devices to go with the MSA?
Has this ever worked, or is it a new configuration?
Why do you want to access it from OpenVMS?

Cheers,
Hein

Re: Connecting to HSZ80/HSG80 controller from terminal

As Ian points out, "SET HOST/SCSI" can be used if you're willing to be responsible for coordinating between different users.

Another option is to set up a terminal server and use the network protocol of your choice, TCP/IP or LAT for remote connections. This also lets you touch your storage with the system down.
If you don't have time to do it right, when will you have time to do it over? Reach me at first_name + "." + last_name at sysmanager net

Not yet discovered, Require some connectivity program to connect HSG controller from Terminal on server session.

"Not yet discovered" = "I know how to ask question, but I do not know what to do with the answers?"

Good luck!
