Publication Date:  2012-10-09 Views:  39 Downloads:  0
Issue Description
The VA7100 is connected with VIS6000 by switch. Scanning in VIS, the VA7110 disk cannot be identified correctly. The number of disk is not correct and the size is 0.
VIS CLI:root>vxdisklist
This command may take a long time. Please wait...

Alarm Information
Handling Process
1. Logon the HPUX which establishes HP StorageWorks Command View SDM as Administrator.
2. Obtain the WWN which is connected with VA7100 FC port in VIS.
3. Check VA7110 current host port behavior table HPBset.txt, and we can know the directory of HPBset.txt.
4. Edit HPBset.txt file by VI and add the relationship between VIS port WWN and Linux. The format is shown below:
<node_WWN> <host_port_behavior>
For example:
200a6b34b7894284 Linux
20a60088g132ca32 Linux
5. Save HPBset.txt file.
6. Apply this new host port behavior table.
7. Rescanning the disk and we can find them normally.
Root Cause
By default HP VA7100 supports HPUX. If making it support VIS6000, we should modify host port behavior table in VA7110.
