Re: WWID

write sys$output f$getdvi("$1$dga1","wwid")

Or upgrade to a more recent version where 'show device' will show it.

Re: WWID

f$getdvi with "WWID" ?

Re: WWID

RHSC04>wwid = f$getdvi( "SYS$SYSDEVICE","WWID" )
RHSC04>show symbol wwid
WWID = "01000010:6006-0160-0231-1900-D41B-F1F7-BA05-DD11"

Wim, from your response, it appears that for once, I knew something before you did. It made my day. (Then my boss walked into the cube with more work and it went down the toilet again...)

Re: WWID

Wow, the Clariion supports OpenVMS?

Re: WWID

(insert usual comments about upgrading to a supported version, at least V7.3-2, its so much better etc)

Re: WWID

Uwe, yes the Clariion supports OVMS if you are willing to waste a smallish volume. For some reason that my storage management team and I haven't quite resolved, you cannot have a DGA0 on a Clariion. If you try to get the console to recognize it with WWIDMGR and the appropriate commands, it looks like DGA(-1). However, DGA1 and higher are OK. So we created a tiny DGA0 and don't even bother to mount it.

Re: WWID

Well, you cannot have a "DGA0" on EVA (and maybe HSG - the CLI command uses "NOIDENTIFIER", but "IDENTIFIER=0" might work, too) either - "0" means something like: "don't present a unit identifier"

A SCSI LUN without such an identifier is indeed shown as "-1" from WWIDMGR.

Do you have to use the trick to create a 'small disk' at LUN address 0 so OpenVMS can recognize the remaining disks? (I guess you make the LUN address and IDENTIFIER number the same? although there is no need to do)

Re: WWID

Uwe, yes we had to create it. Whatever is the first drive presented by the Clariion is the troublesome drive. We created DGA0 just to absorb the troubles into a drive we weren't going to use.

Unlike its big brother, Symmetrix, a Clariion determines the presented unit number (UDID) in some oddball way. I would have to call in our top data storage engineer to tell you more than that.
