Re: HSZ70 solutions software kit Part No. for TRU64 UNIX V5.1B

From the 5.1B documentation:
The HSZ70 is supported with Version 5.1B. The controller driver software is included on the kit, and the Version 5.1B documentation includes troubleshooting information for the HSZ70.

you need HSOF V7.7a:
the platform kit part number is QB-5SBAC-SA

Re: HSZ70 solutions software kit Part No. for TRU64 UNIX V5.1B

I'm really confused, I have just read the 5.1B Release notes prior to reading this forum and page 2-5 section 2.3.1.2 states "support for the HSZ70 storage array controller is retired in this release of the operating system"!
So, is it in or out?

No this statement is incorrect, there is an update information regarding the hsz70. The hsz70 is still supported with Tru64 5.1B but with some restrictions (in case of replacing an adaptor there are some hints).

Re: HSZ70 solutions software kit Part No. for TRU64 UNIX V5.1B

HI all,
just connected the stotage with the AS4100.i want to create mirrorsets of the disks installed in this storage.if i add single disk as unit in the storage,the disk is shown on the SRM prompt of the AS4100.but if i create mirrorsets the mirrorsets are not shown on the SRM prompt.The controller (HSZ70)firmware is V73Z-0.as mentioned in your early replies you asked to update firmware version to 7.7a.could this be reason due to which mirrorsets are not shown even on the SRM prompt or is there any other reason.if this is firmware version then where can i find the HSZ70 version7.7a.
i ahve used the following command procedure to create mirrorset.

add mirrorset m1 disk10000 disk20000
init m1.

i have also tried to add by using the cfmenu console but the result is same.
Any suggestion.

Maybe you forget to define a unit?

> ADD MIRRORSET MIRR1 DISK100 DISK210 DISK320
> INITIALIZE MIRR1
> ADD UNIT D305 MIRR1
