HPVM - hpvmdevmgmt -l gdev shows DEVTYPE=FILE

Hello experts,

 

I have a previuos post but do not seem to be getting anywhere with it.

Can some one please share some hpvm knowledge disk replaced and now shows DEVTYPE_FILE instead of DISK ???

> Is this a simple fix to just change somehow?  I will try almost anything ?

below is the output:

*hn-s-c2hp1 # hpvmdevmgmt -l gdev

lan0:CONFIG=gdev,EXIST=YES,DEVTYPE=NIC,SHARE=NO::WWID_NULL

lan900:CONFIG=gdev,EXIST=YES,DEVTYPE=NIC,SHARE=NO:vswSVR:WWID_NULL

vswSVR:CONFIG=gdev,EXIST=YES,DEVTYPE=SWITCH,SHARE=YES::WWID_NULL

lan902:CONFIG=gdev,EXIST=YES,DEVTYPE=NIC,SHARE=NO::WWID_NULL

vswVM:CONFIG=gdev,EXIST=YES,DEVTYPE=SWITCH,SHARE=YES:hnssb02:WWID_NULL

lan904:CONFIG=gdev,EXIST=YES,DEVTYPE=NIC,SHARE=NO:vswVM:WWID_NULL

/dev/rdisk/disk2072:CONFIG=gdev,EXIST=YES,DEVTYPE=FILE,SHARE=NO:hnssb02:HPVM_STATID_13745_1073741827

Hi,

 

First, should this be posted in the Virtualization section and not the LVM/VxVM section?

 

Second, can you post the output from the commands:

  • hpvmstatus -P hnssb02 -V
  • cat /var/opt/hpvm/guests/hnssb02/vmm_config.current

That way I can see how the host thinks this guest storage is configured.

 

Thanks,

 

Dave

Interesting. I have seen this happen with lvols (where HPVM is coded to default to file when we fail to get wwid

of the lvol device) but never with disk.

 

The procedure which should fix it:

hpvmdevmgmt -d gdev:/dev/rdisk/diskXY:depend:<guestname>

// repeat the above for all devices belonging to one guest that have incorrect DEVTYPE.

// this should remove the entries from the database

 

hpvmmodify -P <guestname> -e <same_entitlement_which_guest_already_has>

// the no-action modify recreates the entries in the database

 

hpvmdevmgmt -l gdev:/dev/rdisk/diskXY

// verify DEVTYPE=LV
