sasmgr output

Hello Experts,

 

Can some one please explain the below output of raid from SAS? All I know is,  disk_15 is primary root disk which is Hardware mirrored(RAID 1) as it says. But as you can see in output there are 5 persistant paths (disk15, disk16, disk17, disk18, disk 19). What is mirrored to what? Which is primary? And what is logic drive? In, actual how many drives are being utilized? (pheeww...) I appreciate if someone can help.

bash-4.2# sasmgr get_info -N -D /dev/sasd2 -q raid

Re: sasmgr output

A logical drive is basically what HP-UX sees when you set up a RAID set in your RAID card.

 

You have 2 l ogical drives configured via your RAID card.

 

You have Logical drive 1, which is seen in HP-UX as /dev/rdisk/disk16.  This logical drive is comprised of 2 actual drives, located in bays 4 & 5, and is a RAID 1 set.

 

You also have logical drive 3, which is seen in HP-UX as /dev/rdisk/disk15.  This logical drive is comprised of 2 actual drives, located in bays 1 & 2, and is a RAID 1 set.

 

There are also 3 drives that are not part of a RAID set.  These physical drives are /dev/rdisk/disk17, disk18 and disk19.  There is no redundency from the RAID card itself for these drives.

 

You also have 1 more drive, in bay 3, that is a hot spare.  This can be used if any drive in a RAID set fails.

Re: sasmgr output

I apologize Torston for that odd output, I should have checked preview before updating.

 

 

Thanks Patrick!  I was thinking that only under LVM HPUX understands Logical concepts. I was not aware that it is now at controller level as well.

 

Can I remove the raid or build the raild online on the drives that are not in use? Or Can I use it even without raid.  I am looking for a suitable drive for a DRD clone. Can I create it on any of the disks 17,18 or 19 which has no redundncy?

Re: sasmgr output

You are using the integrated LSI SAS chip. This controller can manage 2 mirrored pairs and a hot spare. The remaining disks are just disks without any hardware raid. So you can use them for DRD.


Hope this helps!
