Re: auto path commands

Actually the "product name" is Secure Path, regardless of whether it is for a/a or a/p arrays - when you install Secure Path for a/a arrays, the command you get to manage the systems is called "autopath", and the product was called AutoPath many many years ago.

Secure Path is _not_ bundled with _any_ release of HP-UX and never has been - it is an entirely seperately licensed product. Your confusion might be because with HP-UX 11iv3 we have a new native MPIO stack which does away with the requirement for SecurePath for a/a disk arrays. HP-UX 11iv3 does not support a/p disk arrays at all.

As for seeing whether the products are installed, they show up in an swlist output... you will see:

CPQswsp - for Secure Path for A/P disk arrays
HPswsp - for Secure Path for A/A disk arrays

Re: auto path commands

Oh and manual for Secure Path is here:

http://bizsupport1.austin.hp.com/bc/docs/support/SupportManual/c01683918/c01683918.pdf

for A/P Secure Path the command is usually "spmgr" as in:

spmgr display

for A/A Secure Path the command is usually "autopath" as in:

autopath display
