ioscan description for XP24000 is XP12000

On hp-ux 11.31 Superdome connected to XP24000 only, the command

ioscan -fknNC ctl

returns the wrong description (partial)

Class I H/W Path Driver S/W State H/W Type Description

ctl 46 64000/0xfa00/0x7e esctl CLAIMED DEVICE HP OPEN-XP12000

xpinfo seems to know it's and XP24000

Device File : /dev/rdisk/disk450 Model : XP24000

Anyone seen this before, or know of a fix?

I've seen the same behavior from MSA-1000 disks showing up in an MSA-1500 unit as MSA-1000 disks.

It is fairly typical, the XP2400 and XP1200 share a lot of technology.

Hi, hope you're doing well.

I though perhaps the array itself had it's description correct because of xpinfo, but

scsimgr inquiry -D /dev/pt/pt46

So perhaps this just for compatibility as you suggest.
