Publication Date:  2014-09-17 Views:  207 Downloads:  0
Issue Description
The customer does not use Utrapath in  his SAN and he receive alerts about this.
When he clear manualy this alert,  the alert re-appears.
He doesnt want to receive this alarm from his SAN
Alarm Information
On the SAN's GUI there is an option to disable the alert but the customer wanted  to run a command in CLI.

Handling Process
If we want to disable the alarm for multipathing please followe the below steps:

run this command in cli:

chghpalmsw -sw switch

Enables or disables the host path alarm function.
The value can be on or off, where:
• on indicates that you want to enable the host path alarm function.
• off indicates that you want to disable the host path alarm function.

After you run this command to disable the host path alarm function, the existing alarms about host paths cannot be automatically moved to the historic alarm list. The involved alarms include "The UltraPath is not installed on the host or the installed UltraPath is of an early version", "The UltraPath on the host is incompatible with the storage array software", "The LUN cannot be accessed through a redundant path", "The link from the host to the storage array is faulty", and "The link between the host and the storage array is unstable". You have to manually move those alarms.

Example:

Enable the host path alarm function.

admin:/>chghpalmsw -sw on

• command operates successfully.

Disable the host path alarm function.

admin:/>chghpalmsw -sw off

• command operates successfully.



System Response:

Run the showhpalmsw command to view the switch status of the host path alarm function.

admin:/>showhpalmsw
