This document describes the steps needed to be taken for preparing a HP-UX host for volume provisioning. Host Power Tools currently doesn't run on HP-UX, therefore these steps are manual.
We currently support only HP-UX 11i v3 (11.31) hosts.
A HP-UX host is basically ready for volume provisioning without any further configurations. The following steps make sure the HBA/Multipath drivers are configured correctly, and explain how to provision volumes and list the available luns/paths/disks on a host :
- Checking software dependencies.
- Setting HBA driver's attributes and global settings for best practices.
- Setting up Multipathing.
- Checking FC connectivity.
- Provisioning InfiniBox Volumes.
