This guide explains how to provision InfiniBox volumes and obtain their information on a HP-UX host.
This is a manual configuration step that is currently not supported in Host Power Tools.
Before you continue, make sure that there is a FC connectivity to InfiniBox.
- You should create a Host object in InfiniBox, with your host's WWN's using InfiniBox UI or Infinishell.
- You can now create volumes and map them to your host using InfiniBox UI or Infinishell.
List available InfiniBox volumes
To list InfiniBox luns, run:
For each lun, you should see a line of the following form:
Note that the state should be CLAIMED, and health should be online, and this lun is associated with disk/raw disk no. 15.
Further information can be obtained using:
You can view the paths for each disk using:
And you should get details about each disk, and it's available paths:
Where in the above example, disk 6 has 3 paths.
Updating the SCSI disk attributes for better performance
For better performance, after each mapping you should set the following attributes for your new SCSI disk device:
Where /dev/rdisk/disk15 is the device path of the disk. This device path can be retrieved using ioscan -m lun -C disk (See the above example).
If after a disk device is not visible in /dev/dsk after provisioning, try to run:
