How to tell if you have SAS disk?

Hello All,

I ws rading some documentation on creating vpars on npar, and noticed the reference of "SAS drives". How do you determine if you have SAS drives? Will the diskinfo tell me?

Shalom,

I look up the system at http://docs.hp.com

ITs not really possible to tell other than cross referencing the ioscan output with the documentation.

Re: How to tell if you have SAS disk?

Hi Jerry,

can try one of teh following things

#ioscan -fnC ext_bus

and see if you can find the devices using the SAS interface or the devices using /dev/sasd0 or /dev/sasd1 etc.


then you can do

#sasmgr get_info -D /dev/sasd0
#sasmgr get_info -D /dev/sasd1

#sasmgr get_info -D /dev/sasd0 -q vpd
#sasmgr get_info -D /dev/sasd0 -q raid

compare with the ioscan -fnCdisk O/P.

This shall help you getting some idea if the system has SAS Disks.

Regards
Sujit
