Bus Instance number 303 exceeded the maximum allowed (255)

hi all,

anyone know about these error?

Re: Bus Instance number 303 exceeded the maximum allowed (255)

I found this by searching google:

http://docs.hp.com/en/diag/ems/dm_ql_adapter.htm
*********
Event 47

* Severity: SERIOUS
* Description: Bus Instance number ! exceeded the maximum allowed instance number.
* Cause: Fibre Channel driver received bus instance number greater than 255, the maximum allowed instance number.
* Action: Cleanup of the ioconfig file might help. Please Report the problem to Hewlett Packard.

Also a couple of threads from the ITRC:

If you have support, you may need to place a call with the response center.

Re: Bus Instance number 303 exceeded the maximum allowed (255)

yes, i have read that forum related to my case.
to reconfigure ioconfig, just reboot the server or anything else to do before reboot the server?
1. cp -rp /etc/ioconfig /etc/ioconfig.ori
2. cp -rp /stand/ioconfig /stand/ioconfig.ori
3. shutdown -ry now

Hi,

These are the general steps to clean up the IO tree:

Re: Bus Instance number 303 exceeded the maximum allowed (255)

thx Viktor,

1. Make a system recovery tape
2. Collect IO trees from all nodes concerned
3. Decide on the format of the standardized IO tree
4. Document the current device file â HW path mapping
5. Establish which system and user applications use current device files
6. Create an ASCII file representing the new IO tree
7. Shut down the system(s) to single user mode
8. Apply the new IO tree configuration with the ioinit command
9. Reboot the system to single user mode
10. Check that all new device files are created correctly
11. Rework any user or system applications affected by the change in the device file names
12. Remove all old device files

which command must be used in each steps?

Solution

Re: Bus Instance number 303 exceeded the maximum allowed (255)

Hi,

Here are the commands. Don't ask for the exact command parameters, it's up to your configuration.

1. Make a system recovery tape -> make_net_recovery or make_tape_recovery
2. Collect IO trees from all nodes concerned -> ioscan -fnkC ext_bus
3. Decide on the format of the standardized IO tree - it is only applicable if you have two nodes and you want to have the same device files on both nodes. In this case you should decide which layout you want to use.
4. Document the current device file â  HW path mapping -> ioscan -fn >ioscan.bkup; cp /etc/ioconfig /etc/ioconfig.bkup; cp /stand/ioconfig /stand/ioconfig.bkup
5. Establish which system and user applications use current device files -> the best would be to temporarily vgexport/vgimport the volume groups which don't belong to the system (you should only keep vg00 and vg01)
6. Create an ASCII file representing the new IO tree --> format: hw path, class, instance number

# ioscan -fk | tail +3 | awk '{print $3"\t"$1"\t"$2}' > iotree

after that you should delete the lines corresponding to the unwanted device files, or change the device id, etc... remember, after instance 255 everything will be ignored/unusable!

7. Shut down the system(s) to single user mode -> shutdown, hpux -is

8. Apply the new IO tree configuration with the ioinit command -> ioinit -f /path/to/your/new_edited_iotree

9. Reboot the system to single user mode -> shutdown, hpux -is

10. Check that all new device files are created correctly -> ioscan

11. Rework any user or system applications affected by the change in the device file names -> vgimport

12. Remove all old device files -> rmsf

Hope this helps,
Viktor

still failed, there are ext_bus with have number more than 255.

Re: Bus Instance number 303 exceeded the maximum allowed (255)

i just edit /tmp/iotree:

bash-3.00# more /tmp/iotree
0/0/2/0.0 ext_bus 0
0/0/2/0.1 ext_bus 1
0/1/1/0 ext_bus 2
0/1/1/1 ext_bus 3
0/0/2/0.0.0.0 disk 0
0/1/1/0.0.0 disk 1
0/1/1/0.1.0 disk 2
0/1/2/0 lan /0
0/4/1/0 lan 1
0/4/1/1 lan 2
bash-3.00# ioinit -f /tmp/iotree -r

server rebooted but the ext_bus with have number more than 255 still exists.
how about these guys?

Re: Bus Instance number 303 exceeded the maximum allowed (255)

Hi,
open a call and ask for a tool called "ioconfig_dump" from wtec.

It is able to create an ascii file which can be edited from your current binary ioconfig as well as offering an automatic cleanup mode for your problem.

This will reduce all the above steps to

- run ioconfig_dump
- save current ioconfig
- move new ioconfig in place
- reboot

Yuhuu

solved and done! thx for all!
1. mv /etc/ioconfig /etc/ioconfig.ori
2. mv /stand/ioconfig /stand/ioconfig.ori
3. reboot server "shutdown -r 0"
4. server will stop booting up at ioinitrc message

(in ioinitrc)# /sbin/ioinit -c
(in ioinitrc)# ls -ld /etc/ioconfig
/sbin/sh: ls: not found
(in ioinitrc)# /sbin/ioinit -c
(in ioinitrc)# /sbin/ioinit -f /iotree â r

5. server will reboot again
6. solved.
