Re: HP-UX EMS Disk Event critical warning

First check the status of the controller, using for example:

# sasmgr get_info -D /dev/sasd0
# sasmgr get_info -D /dev/sasd0 -q lun=all
# sasmgr get_info -D /dev/sasd0 -q raid
# sasmgr get_info -D /dev/sasd0 -q phy=all


Check itrc.com for driver updates if needed.

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Re: HP-UX EMS Disk Event critical warning

I am seeing the same error on an rx3600, patches were done about 2 months ago. I have sasd driver version B.11.23.04

I'll check for an update, but I'm skeptical...

All HW and RAID check out OK.
I learn something new everyday. (usually because I break something new everyday)

Re: HP-UX EMS Disk Event critical warning

There are many items involved:

- controller firmware
- driver
- diagnostics

and between the internal controller and a smartarray (P400) the firmware and driver is even different.

On almost every item each update brings fixes, enhancements ...

example:
http://docs.hp.com/en/5992-0676/ar01s02.html

I would check this and ask HP support.

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Re: HP-UX EMS Disk Event critical warning

I had a similar EMS message using 11.31 on an rx3600.

Try upgrading to the latest Support Tools and the messages should go away.

Re: HP-UX EMS Disk Event critical warning

Hi Alexander,
I can confirm that this is a known problem, and upgrading to the current (D.02.00) version of the OnlineDiags will fix it.

From http://www.docs.hp.com/en/11827/emr_0709_1131.htm :
============
Disk Monitor (disk_em)

* JAGag28657
On the rx3600 and rx6600 systems, the disk_em monitor monitors the Logical Unit Numbers (LUNs) configured on the internal Serial-Attached SCSI (SAS) controller, although the device is not supported. This problem is fixed. The disk_em monitor does not monitor the LUNs configured on the internal SAS controller.
============

Although it only mentions rx3600 and rx6600, the same problem applies to rx2660, and the same fix applies.

If you get the same problem after upgrading, please report the problem to HP support.

Re: HP-UX EMS Disk Event critical warning

Andrew, the controller is monitored by dm_sas_adapter, right?

Hope this helps!

Torsten.

Torsten,
Yes, that's correct, though not directly related to this problem.
