Re: Mount the filesystem

How is the MSA30 connected to the box running Tru64 Unix - that is through which adapter? What gets returned when you use the scu INQUIRY command against the MSA30 devices? The reason I ask is that I've heard of the MSA1000 and MSA1500 but not the MSA30 in terms of qualification with the Tru64 operating system.

Re: Mount the filesystem

I've been informed that the MSA30 is a parallel scsi shelf/box that goes behind the MSA1500 controller. So the question is how to mount a disk exported by an MSA1500 controller. Have you set up the storage in the MSA1500 and has a hwmgr -scan been run on Tru64 box? Were the new disks found?

Re: Mount the filesystem

Hi

Thanks for the reply...I have thsi after I entered hwmgr -view devices :


3: /dev/dmapi/dmapi 4: scp (unknown) (unknown)
5: /dev/kevm
45: /dev/disk/floppy0c 3.5in floppy fdi0-unit-0
62: /dev/disk/dsk0c i2o_bs iop-0-dev-0
63: /dev/disk/dsk1c i2o_bs iop-0-dev-1
64: /dev/disk/cdrom0c COMPAQ CD-224E bus-1-targ-0-lun-0
65: /dev/ntape/tape0

How do I know which disk is the MSA30 and how do I create/mount the NFS if my disk is /dev/disk/dsk0c...

Thanks in advance

Re: Mount the filesystem

The i2o driver is for the KZPCC backplane raid controller. See http://h18002.www1.hp.com/alphaserver/products/storage/kzpcc_ac.html for more information. Although the MSA30 shelf is listed as a supported enclosure for the KZPEA, the KZPCC adapter does not list the MSA30 shelf as a supported enclosure. On the face of it, it doesn't appear to be a valid hardware configuration.

Re: Mount the filesystem

After you confirm the device name, for example /dev/disk/dsk1c, you have to:

1- Initialize the label:

disklabel -rw dsk1

2- Create a domain:

mkfdmn /dev/disk/dsk1c disk1_domain

3- Create a fileset

mkfset disk1_domain disk1

4- Mount the fileset

mount disk1_domain#disk1 /disk1

5- Edit fstab and add the FS to be mounted at boot time.
