Re: rx3600 sas1068e remove RAID 1

This is insufficient information. Please provide the output of the following commands by running SAS$UTIL.

MC SAS$UTIL
SHOW DISKS
SHOW UNITS

To answer your second question, you can re-configure RAID1 unit, only if that unit is unused or if you dont care about the data in that unit. This can be done by using SAS$UTIL

>- way I can see only 3 disk ?

That's likely the result of the current RAID controller configuration, most likely. Various of these boxes arrived with a P-series RAID controller, and that required configuration from the console or via SAS$UTIL.

Or post the details that are available via running the SYS$SYSTEM:SAS$UTIL.EXE tool, as previously mentioned.


- If RAID 1 how to remove it form unused DKA2? to get 2 disk?

Via the RAID controller configuration tool. (As a prerequisite for RAID-level changes, having a full disk backup can be a good idea. An error at the RAID setup can cause data loss.)

- how to add the rooted logical names to be used with all users at login?

By editing and inserting the definitions into SYLOGICALS.COM and SYSTARTUP_VMS.COM, and (more importantly) by reading the system manager's essentials guide as that provides the necessary foundation for managing an OpenVMS box.

http://www.hp.com/go/openvms/doc

Also have a read of the "HP Integrity rx3600 User Service Guide / User Service Guide" document at:

http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bc/docs/support/SupportManual/c01290179/c01290179.pdf

That document in particular provides an overview of what looks to be the 8-port SAS RAID controller in this box; this is probably an integrated RAID controller.

I've attached a PDF conversion of the Microsoft Office Word document for those of us that aren't using Microsoft Windows and Microsoft Office; what was included there is a console-level screenshot of the EFI environment.

Re: rx3600 sas1068e remove RAID 1

Here is the SAS$UTIL documentation:

http://h71000.www7.hp.com/doc/83final/6048/6048pro_061.html

Here is the general sequence and some general commands...

$ run sys$system:sas$util
SAS> HELP
...
SAS> SHOW CONTROLLER
SAS> SET CONTROLLER device-name
SAS> SET DISK sas-unit /LED=ON
SAS> SET DISK sas-unit /LED=OFF
SAS> SHOW DISK
SAS> SHOW UNIT
SAS>

Caution is warranted here. Command-level errors in SAS$UTIL can lead to configuration changes and to data loss. Please read the manual before proceeding here. And please ensure you have a good backup of your data.
