Replace HBA card using sam remove/add option

Has anyone tried replacing a bad HBA fiber card using sam remove/add option?  HP-UX 11.11

OLRAD is on 11.23 and 11.31. But is it available for 11.11?

  1. on 11.31 it works like this:


    notice to WWPN (world wide port numbers) that will be changes after the change of the hba:

    find out slot_ID of HBA-Card to change usinf cstm.


    Prepare to replace the HBA:

    # /usr/bin/olrad -r slot_ID      

    The above command performs a Critical Resource Analysis (CRA).

  2. Replace the HBA with a new compatible HBA of similar type in the same slot.

  3. Bring the replaced HBA back into the configuration. Enter the following:

    # /usr/bin/olrad -q
  4. Enter the following command after you replace the HBA:

    # /usr/bin/olrad -R slot_ID 
  5. Verify the success of the operation. The slot power should be ON, driver is OLAR capable, and so on.

    # /usr/bin/olrad -q slot_ID
  6. Perform an operating system device scan to re-discover the LUNs. Enter the following:


    # ioscan -fn


    Lookup new WWPNs using fclputil or fcdutil; then update zoning to use new WWPN.
