scsimgr replace_wwid messages

Hi,
I am getting multiple 'csimgr replace_wwid' messages in our Unix servers which have external storage assgined. There are many class : lunpath, instance ids.
Is there any way I can get rid of these instance IDs in one shot or do I have run the 'csimgr replace_wwid' commands for each of the Lun instances.

Re: scsimgr replace_wwid messages

The dmesg messages that I am recieving are

class : lunpath, instance 1794
Evpd inquiry page 83h/80h failed or the current page 83h/80h data do not match the previous known page 83h/80h data on LUN id 0x0 probed beneath
the target path (class = tgtpath, instance = 56) The lun path is (class = lunpath, instance 1794).Run 'scsimgr replace_wwid' command to validat
e the change

Due to this the server is not ablet to detect the newly assigned LUN.
There are hundreads of such messages. Is there any way I can successfully bind all the Lun Instances using the scsimgr replace_wwid command or do I have to run the command individualy for each lun instance ids

Re: scsimgr replace_wwid messages

AFAIK there is no 'one shot' command, you have to do this for each instance with 'scsi_mgr replace_wwid'.

mjos,

Please check out this doc :
To validate replaement of lunpath and to bind lunpath:

Re: scsimgr replace_wwid messages

mjos,

During lun assignment , zoning , mappng you may may see the error messages in syslog or dmesg,
You can check the status if they arestill disabled or ok with :# scsimgr -D get_info /dev/rdisk/diskxxx

if disabled you can try enabling it with enable command or binding the lunpath.

Re: scsimgr replace_wwid messages

The white paper that Raj D pointed you at has the info, and yes there is a "one shot" method to do this, as you can apply the replace_wwid to a complete target path... this is described in the WP starting at the bottom of p29 in the section entitled "Validating disk replacement for all lunpaths under a target path".

You can easily identify what target path instances your LUNs are associated with by running "ioscan -fN" and you will see what lunpaths are under which target path instance numbers (to just see the target path instances try "ioscan -fNC tgtpath")

Re: scsimgr replace_wwid messages

I validated the replacedment for the lunpath for the disk3546 using the scsimgr command
#scsimgr -f replace_wwid -D /dev/rdisk/disk3546
scsimgr: Successfully validated binding of LUN paths with new LUN.

But again in ioscan output the disks shows up as no_hw. Once the validation is done, shouldnt this no_hw disappear from the ioscan output.
#ioscan -N -n -f |grep -i no_hw |grep disk3546

Re: scsimgr replace_wwid messages

Your LUN is working and servicing IOs though isn't it?

Generally NO_HW entries in ioscan don't go away until the next time you reboot... shouldn't be a problem though.
