hpacucli physical disk syntax

hi. i hope this is the correct place to ask this question.

hpacucli physical disk targets claim that it is possible to specify individual disks.

# hpacucli help
...
controller slot=5 physicaldrive 1:5
...

unfortunately, i can't get that to work :

# hpacucli controller slot=0 physicaldrive all show status
...
physicaldrive 1:0 (port 1:id 0, 36.4 GB): OK
...

# hpacucli controller slot=0 physicaldrive 1:1 show status

Error: The specified controller does not have any physical drives identified by '1:1'

so how do i specify an individual physical disk ? additional documentation conviniently leaves out any examples in this area.

i've tried the following hpacucli versions for sles 10 : 7.61-2, 7.70-12, 7.85-18.

Hi Rihards,

I am seeing similar results are you are, but think this may be an error in the way the drives are reported back.

I am using version 7.85-18.0 running under Windows Server 2003.

The command controller all show config returns:
=> controller all show config

Smart Array 5i in Slot 0 ()

array A (Parallel SCSI, Unused Space: 0 MB)

logicaldrive 1 (67.8 GB, RAID 1+0, OK)

physicaldrive 2:0 (port 2:id 0 , Parallel SCSI, 72.8 GB, OK)
physicaldrive 2:1 (port 2:id 1 , Parallel SCSI, 72.8 GB, OK)

If I enter "controller slot=0 pd all show status", I get:
physicaldrive 1:0 (port 1:id 0, 72.8 GB): OK
physicaldrive 1:1 (port 1:id 1, 72.8 GB): OK

I then enter the same command as you have, getting the same error as you.

=> controller slot=0 pd 1:0 show detail

Error: The specified controller does not have any physical drives identified by
'1:0'

If I change to: "controller slot=0 pd 2:1 show detail", I get the following information.

Smart Array 5i in Slot 0

array A

physicaldrive 2:1
SCSI Bus: 2
SCSI ID: 1
Status: OK
Drive Type: Data Drive
Interface Type: Parallel SCSI
Transfer Mode: Ultra 3 Wide
Size: 72.8 GB
Transfer Speed: 160 MB/Sec
Rotational Speed: 10000
Firmware Revision: HPB6
Serial Number: UPA1P34013U40314
Model: COMPAQ BD07286224

Change your command "hpacucli controller slot=0 physicaldrive 1:1 show status" to "hpacucli controller slot=0 physicaldrive 2:1 show status"

Hope this helps,
