Publication Date:  2012-07-18 Views:  224 Downloads:  0
Issue Description
The VA7110 is connected to the VIS6000 by the switch. The VIS cannot detect hard disks on the VA7110 during the disk scan.
The quantity of hard disks is incorrect and the disk capacity is displayed 0, as shown in the following:
VIS CLI:root>vxdisklist

Handling Process
Step 1  Log in as administrator to the HPUX that has HP StorageWorks Command View
SDM installed to manage the VA7100.
Step 2  Obtain the WWN of the VIS FC port that is connected to the VA7100.
Step 3  View the host port behavior list HPBset.txt of the VA7110 and the storage path of the HPBset.txt is armhost -r -f HPBset.txt Array15. Array15 is the alias of the disk array.
Step 4  Edit the HPBset.txt by using the VI. Add the mapping of the VIS port WWN and Linux. The format is as follows:

For example:

200a6b34b7894284 Linux
20a60088g132ca32 Linux
Step 5  Save the modified HPBset.txt file.
Step 6  Apply the new host port behavior list.
The storage path of the host port behavior list is armhost -w -f HPBset.txt Array15. Array15 is the alias of the disk array.
Step 7  Now, the VIS can discover the VA7110 disks during disk scan

Root Cause
HP VA7100 supports HPUX by default. Modify the VA7110 host port behavior list to enable the VA7110 to support the VIS6000 Linux.
