FAQ-Failure to Mount the IPSAN Device to the RH2285 Server in Batches

Publication Date:  2015-06-08 Views:  211 Downloads:  0
Issue Description
The eSpace IVS platform uses the RH2285 server as the application server and the S2600T disk array for storing recording files. You fail to mount the disks to the application server in batches using iDeploy, and the system displays the following error message:

ERROR: The mount point was invalid, please input valid mount point.
Step 1 Log in to iDeploy and choose Task Management > Unifinished Tasks.

Step 2 Click the task name. On the task details page that is displayed, roll back the disk mounting.

Step 3 After a successful rollback, choose Task Management > Create Install Task.

            The Create Task >> Input Task Basic Information page is displayed.

Step 4 Set the Task name, Package name, and Site name parameters, as shown in Figure 1-1. Then click Next.

Step 5 Select a host name and set NE type, as shown in Figure 1-2. Then click Next.

Step 1 Set the disk array parameters following the onscreen instructions, as shown in Figure 1-3.

As the disk array contains a large number of disks, it is recommended that you mount the disks in batches.

Ensure that the assign_pv_batch and mount_point_batch parameters are correctly set. The number of nodes specified in mount_point_batch must be the same as that of the physical disks.

Step 7 Click Next. A disk mounting task is successfully created.

Step 8 Execute the task and check whether the fault is rectified.

If the fault is rectified, no further action is required. If the fault persists, contact Huawei technical support engineers.

When the task is complete, log in to the application server as the root user and run the mount command to check whether the disks are successfully mounted. If the following information is displayed, the disks are successfully mounted:
/dev/sdb on /mrumnt/RecordFile type xfs (rw)
