Problem whit disk /HBA

Good morning

I wanted to share with you this question:

In the server HP-UX 11.31 ia64, assign 10 disk via SYMMETRIX (SAM)

The run command ioscan -fnC see 40 disk via SYMETRIX.

The personal EMC assign only 10 disk:
Device Cap(MB) Attr Dir:P
------ ------- ---- ----
205F 153601 (M) 8B:1, 9B:1
2065 153601 (M) 8B:1, 9B:1
206B 153601 (M) 8B:1, 9B:1
2071 153601 (M) 8B:1, 9B:1
2077 153601 (M) 8B:1, 9B:1
207D 153601 (M) 8B:1, 9B:1
2083 153601 (M) 8B:1, 9B:1
2089 153601 (M) 8B:1, 9B:1
2810 153601 (M) 8B:1, 9B:1
2863 153601 (M) 8B:1, 9B:1

The server is installed 4 HBA
sinfra905:/>ioscan -fnCfc

=====================================================================

/dev/fcd3

The question is:
how to distinguish or view only the 10 disk??

Because there are more than 10 disk in the server??

Re: Problem whit disk /HBA

Use

# ioscan -m dsf

or

# ioscan -fN

Hope this helps!

Re: Problem whit disk /HBA

You're not using PowerPath right?

Symmetrix should be supported in 11.31's mass storage stack/native multipathing. Are you familiar with persistent dsf or agile device naming?

ioscan -m dsf

will show the agile (multipathed) /dev/rdisk/diskNNN and the legacy device paths /dev/rdsk/cXtYdZ (aka subpaths).

If you have the SCSI Inquire EMC tool it will also help.

Re: Problem whit disk /HBA

No, the version Power path have conflict whit HP-UX 11.31.
The load balancing should used for Operation System. 11.31 have Multipathing.

I need view the disk real.

how can view only 10 disk???

Re: Problem whit disk /HBA

Hi,

Please find the commands below to find out the disks.

# ioscan -m dsf
# ioscan -fN

#powermt display dev=all

#/usr/local/bin/inq -clariion

You can run scsimgr to verify the

[root@totoro] / # scsimgr get_attr -D /dev/rdisk/disk30 -a serial_number

SCSI ATTRIBUTES FOR LUN : /dev/rdisk/disk30

name = serial_number
current = "100123CED000"
default =
saved =

"100123CED000" -Last three digits are the LUN ID included in the serial number.

This will help you to cross verify the the information on two disks.As this might be a bug if you have not mapped more than 10 disks to the server.

The output given by you show disks far more than 10 disks.

Thanks

Re: Problem whit disk /HBA

What kind of EMC Symmterix is this?

Your ioscan -m dsf output does not seem to show that your agile/dsf devices are multipathed at all.


Do you Have EMC's SCSI inquire utility sir?

The binary is usually called inq or inquire

Re: Problem whit disk /HBA

Isn't the EMC Symmetrix 5000 Series a VERY OLD array? And from the looks of the support matrix here http://www.hp.com/products1/serverconnectivity/mass_storage_devices.html#EMCiSCSI - it does not seem 11.31 supports it.


That is whty your info on the disk in scsimgr does not show multipaths sir...

Now I don't know if you can still safely use the legacy devices and just use PVLINKs. It may work -- but likely unsupported.

Re: Problem whit disk /HBA

You should only use the native multipathing, no powerpath. IMHO this is the reason for trouble here.

Hope this helps!

Re: Problem whit disk /HBA

Hi torsten, exactly

i need used ative multipathing, but I think so no compatiblity the EMC Symetrix whit Opeartion System.

I dont can install powerpath. HP-UX 11.31 and version power path have problem, the server crash constantly.

Re: Problem whit disk /HBA

See my last 2 posts.

Your EMC does not appear to be recognised, multipathed by 11.31's mass storage stack. Yor disk info shows it clearly... if it did - it should show 4 paths. And it is not

Bottom line.. you likely HAVE an old Symmetrix 5000 series that IS not supported by 11.31's multipathing routines....

Ask your EMC person. Is the array an old 5000 Series!

If it is -- then it is likely UNSUPPORTED in 11.31


You can still however try using it - via PVLINKS but DO test if PVLINKS work.

Re: Problem whit disk /HBA

Not asking the flavour of your HP-UX Operation Environment 11.31 sir.

Ask your EMC/SAN person:

Is the array an old 5000 Series!

Coz if IT IS -- then it is NOT FULLY supported under HP-UX 11.31

You are able to find out what are the cXtYdZ for each of the EMC LUN right?

Then do legacy devices in LVM sir.
