HP-UX 11.31 and MSA2312fc LUN mapping

HI!

I have an unusual problem. i have a MSA2312fc and a BL860c with HP-UX 11.31
On the MSA i've created 12 volumens (LUNs), under a single vdisk in RAID5. i created the zones on the san switch.

On the side of the HP-UX, i can view the correct paths of hardware if i do an ioscan -fn
so that leaves behind that it can be an issue on the san switch

ok, so the problem is that i can only see 8 LUNs on the HP-UX!!! Every LUN matches the right size assigned on the MSA.

I tried not mapping and mapping the LUNs to the host and seems fine... I re-created the vdisk and the volumes too

I don't know what it can be

Thanks in advance
Cheers

Try command
ioscan -m dsf

to find the all available path of the LUNs

i already done that

iosccan -fn
insf -e
ioscan -m dsf

the paths are OK, i can't see the 12 disks, only 8

You need to present LUNs in HP-UX mode (not windows or anything else). Otherwise you cannot see more than 8 LUNs usually. Only the G2 of this MSA supports hp-ux.

Hope this helps!

Well, the term "present" doesn't come from de EVAs? That's why I put "mapping"...

Anyway, thanks for your reply, can you help telling me how to do the presentation?

Thanks
Torsten.

I never worked with this array so far, but it is all the same for all arrays - host mode must be hp-ux for hp-ux servers.

According to the manual there is a Server OS Type to be selected.

Found this in "HP StorageWorks Simple SAN Connection Manager user guide"

Hope this helps!

Torsten.

Bonjour Oscar,

recently worked with this kind of storage area and hp-ux 11.31. To modify Os type, expand folder "Hosts" in the "Configuration view" panel, select the host, then "Provisionning --> Rename Host". You will find a "Profile" box in which you must select "HP-UX"
