Re: how to check the I/o slot path

If you need to see what slot a card is in, you can use the 'olrad -q' command.  For example:

 

# olrad -q
                                                         Driver(s)
                                                         Capable
Slot     Path            Bus    Max  Spd  Pwr  Occu Susp OLAR  OLD  Max   Mode
                         Num    Spd                                 Mode
0-0-1-1  1/0/8/0         320    66   66   Off  No   N/A  N/A   N/A  PCI   PCI
0-0-1-2  1/0/10/0        336    66   66   Off  No   N/A  N/A   N/A  PCI   PCI
0-0-1-3  1/0/12/0        352    66   33   On   Yes  No   Yes   Yes  PCI   PCI
0-0-1-4  1/0/14/0        368    66   33   On   Yes  No   Yes   Yes  PCI   PCI
0-0-1-5  1/0/6/0         304    66   66   On   Yes  No   Yes   Yes  PCI   PCI
0-0-1-6  1/0/4/0         288    66   66   On   Yes  No   Yes   Yes  PCI   PCI
0-0-1-7  1/0/2/0         272    66   66   On   Yes  No   Yes   Yes  PCI   PCI
0-0-1-8  1/0/1/0         264    66   66   On   Yes  No   Yes   Yes  PCI   PCI

In the SLOT column above the numbers are:

Cabinet#-Bay#-Chassis#-Slot#

So the last card in my list is in Cabinet #0, Bay #0, Chassis #1, Slot #8 (the Cabinet# and Bay# are not relevant on this particular server).

 

As to your second question -- I'm not sure what you mean by dynamic root mirroring.  Do you mean Dynamic Root Disk (DRD)?

Re: how to check the I/o slot path

olrad is not working for blades, because you cannot online replace or add an I/O card in a blade.

 

What do you really want to know?

 

I cannot find the question in 1)

 

With DRD (dynamic root disk) you can create a clone of the OS, patch or upgrade the clone and finally activate the clone.


Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Re: how to check the I/o slot path

1) please provide

 

# model

# ioscan -fn

 

2) see http://www.hp.com/go/drd

 

 

 

I can't remember any server with a path like 33/0/... even superdome dealing with large numbers starts I/O with 40/... in IOX, but no 33/...


Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.
