Why there is difference between instance no in o/p of of two commands(mark in red)

Re: MSL Tape drive issue

My command:

 

# scsimgr -f replace_wwid -D  /dev/rtape/tape10_BEST dsf

 

your command:

 

>scsimgr replace_wwid -D /dev/rtape/tape10_BESTnb

 

 

So you missed the "dsf", this is the reason.

 

 

So you redirected the agile device, but not the legacy. A "io_redirect_dsf" could help now, but if you use the agile device (recommended) it should be good anyway.


Hope this helps!

Torsten.

Re: MSL Tape drive issue

So in my case

 

UWRA1 root(/)>ioscan -m lun |grep tape
tape 5 64000/0xfa00/0x19 estape CLAIMED DEVICE online HP C5683A
/dev/rtape/tape5_BEST /dev/rtape/tape5_BESTb /dev/rtape/tape5_BESTn /dev/rtape/tape5_BESTnb
tape 7 64000/0xfa00/0x21 estape CLAIMED DEVICE online HP Ultrium 4-SCSI
/dev/rtape/tape7_BEST /dev/rtape/tape7_BESTb /dev/rtape/tape7_BESTn /dev/rtape/tape7_BESTnb
tape 10 64000/0xfa00/0x2e estape NO_HW DEVICE offline HP Ultrium 4-SCSI
/dev/rtape/tape10_BEST /dev/rtape/tape10_BESTb /dev/rtape/tape10_BESTn /dev/rtape/tape10_BESTnb
tape 12 64000/0xfa00/0x37 estape CLAIMED DEVICE online HP Ultrium 4-SCSI
/dev/rtape/tape12_BEST /dev/rtape/tape12_BESTb /dev/rtape/tape12_BESTn /dev/rtape/tape12_BESTnb

 

io_redirect_dsf -H 64000/0xfa00/0x2e -N 64000/0xfa00/0x37 will this work?

Re: MSL Tape drive issue

I would try

 

# io_redirect_dsf -d  /dev/rtape/tape10_BEST -n /dev/rtape/tape12_BEST

 

and check with

 

# ioscan –m lun | grep tape


Hope this helps!

Torsten.

But o/p of  ioscan -fnC tape is still not showing all device file of drive 1 (mark in red)

Re: MSL Tape drive issue

You should not use them anyway, better use the agile device files.

 

However, you may try to rmsf the related device files and re-create them.


Hope this helps!
