MSL 6030 and Network Storage Router e1200-160

hi, all
I`ve some problem with msl6030… on this library customer has one drive, router (p/n 320101-001) , controller (p/n 231671-001)

Problem was that, msl don`t see drive, I replaced the router, but it didn`t see the any connections by scsi, and when i tried press discovery, router didn`t answered me(no ping, no reactions, i needed reboot the msl or router for working with this router)… so then I replaced the controller

I upgraded the firmware on the controller… but the router didn`t see any scsi connections

Then connected by next scheme: drive -> router -> controller, and I put terminator on the drive.

And yep, it`s working, router see the drive and controller, hp-ux don`t see this msl…
I didn`t find any documentations about the configuration the controller, only replacement the controller

I so stupid, that cann`t close this subcase the 3rd day!!!!

Thank for any advise (but not like “put your hands in your pockets, and do one step away” or “ just say that: i cann`t do this work, that mission impossible for me”

Hi,
maybe you could check the FC to SCSI drive mapping and if needed edit the port 0 map according to your needs - ( e.g. assign the HP-UX port wwns to the drives)
the pain is one part of the reality

I don't know how it was before, but the SCSI connection should be

NSR -> lib ctrl -> drive -> terminator

Now do the mapping on the NSR - should be "indexed".

If you use zoning in your SAN (you should!) - check this too.

If you are now on hp-ux, inspect the "ioscan -fn" output for any UNKNOWN devices - maybe you need to install the "stape" and "schgr" drivers.


Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Hi,
for mapping you can have a look in the user guide:

Re: MSL 6030 and Network Storage Router e1200-160

can someone advice to me...
switch doesn`t have any zone configuration (no zoning)... switch see the hp-ux server, EVA 4000 and msl...
MSL can see only EVA 4000, and hp-ux server can see only EVA...
what i need to do , that hp-ux will see msl, and msl will see hp-ux???

Re: MSL 6030 and Network Storage Router e1200-160

Hi,
in my opinion it is much better to do the zonning:
a) if you have the storage, then the HPUX host separately with the storage
b) and then the HPUX host separately with the library

This will isolate the host/tape and host/san drive communication and everything will be in its right place

Re: MSL 6030 and Network Storage Router e1200-160

Let's check your mapping first.

Telnet to the NSR and log on (root/password).

Then do

1) Perform Configuration

5) Device Mapping

2) Display Current Map

and post the output.


Also attach the output of

# ioscan -fn

from your hp-ux server.

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Re: MSL 6030 and Network Storage Router e1200-160

I am having a similar problem. Replaced the router in the library. got a refurbished one from ebay. My switch zoning "sees" the wwn from the router, and the zoning seems to be working, but my windows server still dont see the library. Any ideas?

Hi, Miguel
first thing that you should do is create new LUN`s for your M$ Win server.
