Check the LUNs how?

# ioscan -kfnC disk

will show all "disk" devices, which a LUN is, on your system.

What else do you want to check?

Re: how to check lun status in hpux

there are plenty of commands you can but it would be easier if you told us what specific disk info you are looking for

Re: how to check lun status in hpux

It depends on what kind of storage you are using. There are vendor specific tools for each box, like evainfo, xpinfo from HP or symcli from EMC. These are not part of the operating system and have to be installed separately. They provide detailed information about LUNs visible to the host they are installed on.

Shalom,

If it has a filesystem on it, bdf is usually enough for me.

ioscan -fnC disk

My command of voice.

Re: how to check lun status in hpux



dear avizen

it depends on storage
for example if u present the disk from xp
then xpinfo -i

ioscan -func | grep -i lunnumber
will give u the disk name.

first use xpinfo -i to determine the lun number if it is xp storage then
if it is eva the evainfo
once u found the lun then u can use ioscan -funC | grep -i lun number then u will get the disk name also

What exactly do you want to check?

On 11,31 try

$ ioscan -fkm lun
$ ioscan -P health -C disk

Hope this helps!
