Maximum of /dev/dsk/cXtXdX reached? HP-UX 11.31

Hi,

I presented 28 LUNs and now the command insf don't add new /dev/dsk/cxtxdx devices, because the maximum c9 is reached. Does a kernel parameter exist for this maximum?

Thanks

Andre

hi,

my opinion is to reboot the server if its possible, and check if all special files was created during the boot.

Ok, it was my mistake. It had nothing to do with the described problem.

Andre,
In 11.31 /dev/dsk/ limitations and problems has been resolved with /dev/disk/ format, why not to use agile addressing.


How # ioscan -fnNC disk looks like
Also # ioscan -m dsf

Try to Provide more details .

Raj,
the Problem was the following. I presented 2 new LUNs from the EVA4400. HP-UX placed the two LUNs (4 Paths per LUN) in one of the permanent /dev/disk/diskXXX special devices and mean /dev/disk/diskXXX has eight paths for whatever reason.

After a reboot the problem was solved. The second /dev/disk/diskXXX was created. It's seems to be a bug in HP-UX 11.31.

Thanks for all the posts.

Bug or not, it always creates problems if you present EVA LUNs in any other than hp-ux mode.

Check this again.

Hope this helps!

Torsten.

All hosts are in the HP-UX mode on the EVA.

Its not a bug. It is what happens if a lun with wwid X first gets assigned to lun id Y, then the lun with wwid X gets deleted and a lun with wwid Z, gets assigned to the same lun id Y.
