Re: MSL Tape drive issue

What OS version is running on the server?

Did you reboot the OS after replacing the tape drive?


Hope this helps!

Re: MSL Tape drive issue

OS version is 11.3. As these are production server hence not reboot yet but planning for the same.

Re: MSL Tape drive issue

No need for reboot now.

 

Try this:

 

# ioscan -m lun | grep tape

 

Post the result!

 

Any "NO_HW" entry?

 

 

 

The new device will get a new device file, so you need to adjust the device files again - both, legacy and agile.


Hope this helps!

Torsten.

Re: MSL Tape drive issue

On UWRA1:

 

this is the old device file

 

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

 

and this the new:

 

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

 

Now try

 

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

 

and do the check again.


Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Re: MSL Tape drive issue

Did you run any device file related command before (after the drive replacement)?

Re: MSL Tape drive issue

Yes I have run the following command

UWRA1 root(/)>ioscan -m dsf |grep -i /dev/rmt/c53t0d1BESTn

/dev/rtape/tape10_BESTn   /dev/rmt/c53t0d1BESTn

/dev/rtape/tape10_BESTnb   /dev/rmt/c53t0d1BESTnb

UWRA1 root(/)>scsimgr replace_wwid -D /dev/rtape/tape10_BESTnb

scsimgr:WARNING: Performing replace_wwid on the resource may have some impact on

Do you really want to replace? (y/[n])? y

scsimgr: Successfully validated binding of LUN paths with new LUN.

 

Original issue was tape drive showing no_hw state, upon all log checks HP backend team suggest tape drive need to replace. After replacing tape drive as per suggestion by HP engineer I ran the above mention commands.

 

Query: If I run ioscan -fn command after removing of old drive & before insatlling new drive does it make any difference?

In this case I ran it after replacement.

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!

Re: MSL Tape drive issue

I would try

and check with

 

# ioscan –m lun | grep tape


Hope this helps!

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!
