Installation
You and your HP service representative each play a role in installation.
Your HP service representative is responsible for installing the disk array
and formatting the disk devices. You are responsible for configuring the
host server for the new devices with assistance from your HP service
representative.
Installation
15
Features and requirements
Ask your HP service representative about the latest supported hardware and
software.
The disk array and host have the following features:
• Storage capacity. The storage capacity for each model is listed
below:
XP128: From 8 to 128 drives for up to 18 TB, 48 FC ports
XP1024: From 8 to 1024 drives for up to 149 TB, 64 FC ports
XP10000: Up to 240 drives for up to 69.2 TB, 48 FC ports
XP12000: Up to 1152 drives for up to 165 TB, 128 FC ports
• Server support. HP-UX-supported processor
• Operating system support. HP-UX, version 10.20, 11.0, or 11i v2
with the latest patches (if any)
Before installing the disk array, ensure the environment conforms to these
requirements:
• Host Bus Adapters (HBAs) Install HBAs and all utilities and
drivers. Refer to the adapter documentation for installation details.
• (Recommended) HP StorageWorks Remote Web Console XP,
Command View XP Advanced Edition or Command View XP with
LUN management feature for configuring disk array ports and
paths
• (Recommended) HP StorageWorks LUN Configuration and
Security Manager XP
16
HP StorageWorks Disk Array XP Operating System Configuration Guide: HP-UX
• (Optional) Other available XP software (some may not be
supported by your array:
HP StorageWorks Business Copy XP
HP StorageWorks Continuous Access XP
HP StorageWorks Continuous Access Extension XP
HP StorageWorks Auto LUN XP
HP StorageWorks Data Exchange XP
HP StorageWorks Resource Manager XP
HP StorageWorks RAID Manager XP
HP StorageWorks Cache LUN XP
HP StorageWorks Auto Path XP
HP StorageWorks Cluster Extension XP
HP StorageWorks Performance Advisor XP
Fibre Channel interface
The XP family of disk arrays supports these Fibre Channel elements:
• Connection speed of 1 Gbps and 2 Gbps
• Short-wave non-OFC (open fiber control) optical interface
• Multimode optical cables with SC or LC connectors
• Public or private arbitrated loop (FC-AL) or direct fabric attach
• Fibre Channel switches
Even though the interface is Fibre Channel, this guide uses the term “SCSI
disk” because disk array devices are defined to the host as SCSI disks.
Installation
17
Device emulation types
The XP family of disk arrays supports these device emulation types:
• OPEN-K/3/8/9/E devices: OPEN-x logical units represent disk
devices. Except for OPEN-V, these devices are based on fixed
sizes. OPEN-V is a user-defined size. Supported emulations
include OPEN-3, OPEN-8, OPEN-9, OPEN-E, OPEN-L, and
OPEN-V devices.
• LUSE devices (OPEN-x*n): Logical Unit Size Expansion (LUSE)
devices combine 2 to 36 OPEN-x devices to create expanded
LDEVs larger than standard OPEN-K/3/8/9/E disk devices. For
example, an OPEN-x LUSE volume created from ten OPEN-x
volumes is designated as OPEN-x*10.
• CVS devices (OPEN-x CVS): Volume Size Configuration (VSC)
defines custom volumes (CVS) that are smaller than normal
fixed-sized logical disk devices (volumes). (OPEN-V is a
CVS-based custom disk size that you determine. OPEN-L does not
support CVS.)
• LUSE (expanded) CVS devices (OPEN-x*n CVS): LUSE CVS
combines CVS devices to create an expanded device. This is done
by first creating CVS custom-sized devices and then using LUSE
to combine from 2 to 36 CVS devices. For example, if three
OPEN-9 CVS volumes are combined to create an expanded device,
this device is designated as OPEN-9*3-CVS.
Failover
The XP family of disk arrays supports many standard software products
that provide host, application, or I/O path failover and management.
The following are supported for HP-UX:
• HP Multi-Computer/ServiceGuard (MC/ServiceGuard) software for
application failover
• Alternate link for I/O path failover (included in HP-UX)
• Logical volume management (included in HP-UX)
18
HP StorageWorks Disk Array XP Operating System Configuration Guide: HP-UX
SNMP configuration
The XP family of disk arrays supports standard Simple Network
Management Protocol (SNMP) for remotely managing the disk array. The
SNMP agent on the SVP performs error-reporting operations requested by
the SNMP manager. SNMP properties are usually set from the SVP but
they can also be set remotely using Remote Web Console XP, Command
View XP, or Command View XP Advanced Edition. Refer to the
applicable user’s guide for procedures.
RAID Manager command devices
RAID Manager manages Business Copy (BC) or Continuous Access (CA)
operations from a host server. To use RAID Manager with BC or CA, you
use Remote Web Console, Command View, or Command View XP
Advanced Edition to designate at least one LDEV as a command device.
Refer to the applicable user’s guide for information about how to designate
a command device.

Installation
23
Configuring the Fibre Channel ports
Configure the disk array Fibre Channel ports by using Remote Web
Console (shown), Command View, or Command View XP AE. Select the
settings for each port based on your storage area network topology. Use
switch zoning if you connect different types of hosts to the array through
the same switch.
Fibre Address
In fabric environments, the port addresses are assigned automatically. In
arbitrated loop environments, set the port addresses by selecting a unique
arbitrated loop physical address (AL-PA) or loop ID for each port.

Install and configure the host
This section explains how to install and configure the host and host bus
adapters (HBAs) that connect the host to the disk array.
Loading the OS and software
Follow the manufacturer’s instructions to load the operating system and
software onto the host. Load all OS patches and configuration utilities
supported by HP and the HBA manufacturer.
Installing and configuring the HBAs
Install and configure the host bus adapters using the HBA manufacturer’s
instructions.
26
HP StorageWorks Disk Array XP Operating System Configuration Guide: HP-UX
Clustering and fabric zoning
If you plan to use clustering, install and configure the clustering software
on the servers.
Clustering is the organization of multiple servers into groups. Within a
cluster, each server is a node. Multiple clusters compose a multi-cluster
environment. The following example shows a multi-cluster environment
with three clusters, each containing two nodes. The nodes share access to
the disk array.
Within the Storage Area Network (SAN), the clusters may be
homogeneous (all the same operating system) or they may be
heterogeneous (mixed operating systems). How you configure LUN
Security and fabric zoning depends on the operating system mix and the
SAN configuration.
Installation
27
Fabric zoning and LUN security for multiple operating systems
You can connect multiple clusters of various operating systems to the same
switch and fabric using appropriate zoning and LUN security as follows:
• Host zones must contain only homogeneous operating systems.
• Storage port zones may overlap if more than one operating system
needs to share an array port.
• Heterogeneous operating systems may share an XP array port if you
use Secure Manager and set the appropriate host group and mode.
All others must connect to a dedicated XP array port.
• Use Secure Manager for LUN isolation when multiple hosts connect
through a shared array port. Secure Manager provides LUN
security by allowing you to restrict which LUNs each host can
access.

HP StorageWorks Disk Array XP Operating System Configuration Guide: HP-UX
Connect the disk array
The HP service representative connects the disk array to the host by:
1. Verifying operational status of the disk array channel adapters, LDEVs,
and paths.
2. Connecting the Fibre Channel cables between the disk array and the
fabric switch or host.
3. Verifying the ready status of the disk array and peripherals.
Defining the paths
Use Remote Web Console (shown), Command View, or Command View
XP AE to define paths (LUNs) between hosts and volumes in the disk
array.
This process is also called “LUN mapping.” In Remote Web Console and
Command View, LUN mapping includes:
• Configuring ports
• Setting LUN security
• Creating host groups
• Assigning host bus adapter WWNs to host groups
• Mapping volumes to host groups (by assigning LUNs)
Installation
29
In Command View XP AE, LUN mapping includes:
• Configuring ports
• Creating storage groups
• Mapping volumes and WWN/host access permissions to the
storage groups
For details see LUN Configuration and Security Manager User’s Guide or
Command View XP Advanced Edition Device Manager Web Client User’s
Guide. Note the LUNS and their ports, WWNs, nicknames, and LDEVs for
later use in verifying host and device configuration.
30
HP StorageWorks Disk Array XP Operating System Configuration Guide: HP-UX
Verifying HBA installation
After configuring the ports on the disk array, verify that the HBAs are
installed properly.
Use the ioscan –f command, and verify that the rows shown in the example
are displayed. If these rows are not displayed, check the host adapter
installation (hardware and driver installation) or the host configuration.

Verifying device recognition
Verify that the HP-UX system recognizes the new devices on the disk
array.
If the SCSI paths were defined after the system is powered on, you must
halt and restart the system to allow the system to recognize the new
devices.
To verify device recognition:
1. Log in to the system as root.
2. Display the device data to verify that the system recognizes the newly
installed devices on the disk array. Use the ioscan –fn command to
display the device data.
On a system with a large LUN configuration, HP-UX may not build
device files on all LUNs. Enter insf –e to build all missing device files.

3. Enter the device data for each disk array device in a table. See “Path
worksheet” on page 62.
4. Construct the device file name for each device, using the device
information, and enter the file names in your table. Use the following
formula to construct the device file name:
cxtydz
where
x = SCSI bus instance number
y = SCSI target ID
z = LUN
c stands for controller, t stands for target ID, and d stands for device.
The numbers x, y, and z are hexadecimal.

5. Verify that the SCSI TIDs correspond to the assigned port address for
all connected ports (see mapping tables on page 63 in Appendix B, for
values). If so, the logical devices are recognized properly.
If the logical devices are not recognized properly:
• Check the AL-PA for each port using the LUN Manager software.
• If the same port address is set for multiple ports on the same loop
(AL with HUB), all port addresses except one changed to another
value, and the relationship between AL-PA and TID does not
correspond to the mapping given in Appendix B (page 63), set a
Installation
33
different address for each port, reboot the server, and then verify
new device recognition again.
• If unused device information remains, the TID-to-AL-PA mapping
will not correspond to the mapping given in Appendix B (page 63).
Renew the device information, and then verify new device
recognition again.

HP StorageWorks Disk Array XP Operating System Configuration Guide: HP-UX
Configure disk array devices
Disk arrays are configured using the same procedure for configuring any
new disk on the host. This includes the following procedures:
1. Verifying the device files and drivers (see page 36)
2. Creating the device files (see page 38)
3. Creating the physical volumes (see page 41)
4. Creating new volume groups (see page 42)
5. Creating logical volumes (see page 45)
6. Creating the file systems (see page 47)
7. Setting the I/O timeout parameter (see page 49)
8. Creating the mount directories (see page 50)
9. Mounting and verifying the file systems (see page 51)
10. Setting and verifying the auto-mount parameters (see page 52)
The HP-UX system uses the Logical Volume Manager (LVM) to manage
the OPEN-x devices on the disk array. The instructions in this section do
not explicitly cover all LVM configuration issues. For further information
on LVM configuration, see the HP-UX user documentation.
HP System Administrator Manager (SAM) can be used instead of UNIX
commands to configure SCSI disk devices. See appendix C (page 73) for
further information.
Installation
35
Verifying the device files and drivers
The device files for new devices are usually created automatically during
HP-UX startup. Each device must have a block-type device file in the
/dev/dsk directory and a character-type device file in the /dev/rdsk
directory.
However, some HP-compatible systems do not create the device files
automatically. If verification shows that the device files were not created,
follow the instructions in “Creating the device files” (page 38) to create the
device files manually.
This procedure verifies both types of device files.
To verify that the device files for the disk array devices were created:
1. Display the block-type device files in the /dev/dsk directory using the
ls –l command with the output piped to more. Verify there is one
block-type device file for each disk array device.
Example
# ls –l /dev/dsk | more
Total 0
brw-r - - - - - 1 bin sys 28 0x006000 Dec 6 15:08
c6t0d0
brw-r - - - - - 1 bin sys 280 0x06100 Dec 6 15:08
c6t0d1
2. Verify that the block-type device file name for each device is correct.
3. Display the character-type device files in the /dev/rdsk directory using
the ls –l command with the output piped to more. Verify that there is
one character-type device file for each disk array device.
36
HP StorageWorks Disk Array XP Operating System Configuration Guide: HP-UX
Example
# ls –l /dev/rdsk | more
Total 0
crw-r - - - - c6t0d0
1 bin sys 177 0x006000 Dec 6 15:08
crw-r - - - - c6t0d1
1 bin sys 177 0x006100 Dec 6 15:08
4. Use the device data table you created to verify that the character-type
device file name for each device is correct.
This task can also be accomplished with the lssf command.
5. After verifying the block-type and character-type device files, verify the
HP-UX driver for the disk array using the ioscan –fn command.

Creating the device files
If the device files were not created automatically when the system was
restarted, use the insf –e command in the /dev directory to create the device
files. After this command is executed, repeat the procedures in the previous
section (page 36) to verify new device recognition and the device files and
driver.
Example
# insf -e
insf: Installing special files for mux2 instance 0
address 8/0/0
:
:
:
:
:
:
:
:
#
Failure of the insf –e command indicates a SAN problem.
If the device files for the new disk array devices cannot be created
automatically, you must create the device files manually using the mknod
command as follows:
1. Retrieve the device information you recorded earlier.
2. Construct the device file name for each device, using the device
information, and enter the file names in your table. Use the following
formula to construct the device file name:
cxtydz
where
x = SCSI bus instance number
y = SCSI target ID
z = LUN
c stands for controller, t stands for target ID, and d stands for device.
The numbers x, y, and z are hexadecimal.
38
HP StorageWorks Disk Array XP Operating System Configuration Guide: HP-UX
3. Construct the minor number for each device, using the device
information, and enter the file names in your table. Use the following
formula to construct the minor number:
0xxxyz00
where
xx = SCSI bus instance number
y = SCSI target ID
z = LUN
4. Display the driver information for the system using the lsdev command.
Example
# lsdev
Character
Block
:
:
188
31
Driver
Class
:
sdisk
:

#
5. Enter the major numbers for the device drivers into the table. You should
now have all required device and driver information in the table.
6. Create the device files for all disk array devices (SCSI disk and
multiplatform devices) using the mknod command. Create the
block-type device files in the /dev/dsk directory and the character-type
device files in the /dev/rdsk directory.
Example
# cd /dev/dskGo to /dev/dsk directory.
# mknod /dev/dsk/c2t6d0 b 31 0x026000
Create block-type file.
File name, b=block-type, 31=major #, 0x026000= minor
#
# cd /dev/rdskGo to /dev/rdsk directory.
# mknod /dev/rdsk/c2t6d0 c 188 0x026000
Installation
39
Create character-type file.
File name, c=character-type, 177=major #,
0x026000=minor #
:
#
The character-type device file is required for volumes used as raw
devices (for example, 3390-3A/B/C). The block-type device file is not
required for volumes used as raw devices.
If you need to delete a device file, use the rm –i command.

Creating the physical volumes
A physical volume must be created for each new SCSI disk device.
To create the physical volumes:
1. Use the pvcreate command to create the physical volumes with the
character-type device file as the argument. Specify the /dev/rdsk
directory.
Example
# pvcreate /dev/rdsk/c6t0d0
Physical volume "/dev/rdsk/c6t0d0" has been
successfully created.
:
# pvcreate /dev/rdsk/c6t0d1
Physical volume "/dev/rdsk/c6t0d1" has been
successfully created.
Do not use the –f option with the pvcreate command. This option
creates a new physical volume forcibly and overwrites the existing
volume. If you accidentally enter the character-type device file for an
existing volume, you will lose the data on that volume.
2. Repeat step 1 for each OPEN-x device on the disk array.
Installation
41
Creating new volume groups
You must create new volume groups for the new physical volumes. If
desired, you can also add any of the volumes on the disk array to existing
volume groups using the vgextend command. The physical volumes that
make up one volume group can be located either in the same disk array or
in other disk arrays.
To allow more volume groups to be created, use SAM to modify the
HP-UX system kernel configuration. See appendix C (page 73) for details.
To create volume groups:
1. Use the vgdisplay command to display the existing volume groups.
2. Choose a unique name for the new volume group (for example: vg06).
3. Create the directory for the new volume group.
Example
# mkdir /dev/vg06
4. Use the ls –l command (with the output piped to grep to display only
the files containing “group”) to display the minor numbers for the
existing group files.
Example
# ls –1 /dev/vg* | grep group
crw-rw-rw 1 root root 64
group
0x0000000
Nov7 08:13
:
5. Choose a unique minor number for the new group file in sequential order
(for example, when existing volume groups are vg00-vg05 and the next
group name is vg06, use minor number 06 for the vg06 group file).
The minor numbers are hexadecimal (for example, the 10th minor
number is 0x0a0000).
6. Use mknod to create the group file for the new directory. Specify the
volume group name, major number, and minor number. The major
number for all group files is 64.
42
HP StorageWorks Disk Array XP Operating System Configuration Guide: HP-UX
Example
In this example: group name = vg06, major number of group file = 64,
minor number of existing group file = 06 (which must be unique for
each volume group), and c = character.
# mknod /dev/vg06/group c 64 0x060000
:
7. Create the volume group.
To allocate more than one physical volume to the new volume group,
add the other physical volumes, separated by a space.
Example
# vgcreate /dev/vg06 /dev/dsk/c6t0d0
Volume group "/dev/vg06" has been successfully
created.
Volume group configuration for /dev/vg06 has been
saved in /etc/1vmconf/vg06.conf.
For Logical Unit Size Expansion (LUSE) volumes that contain more
than 17 OPEN-8/9 LDEVs or more than 7043 MB
(OPEN-8/9*n-CVS), use the –s and –e physical extent (PE)
parameters of the vgcreate command. See “LUSE device parameters”
(page 68).
If you need to delete a volume group, use the vgremove command (for
example, vgremove /dev/vgnn). If the vgremove command does not
work because the volume group is not active, use the vgexport
command (for example, vgexport /dev/vgnn).
8. Use the vgdisplay command to verify that the new directory was
created.
9. Use vgdisplay –v to verify that the volume group was created correctly.
The –v option displays the detailed volume group information.

Creating logical volumes
Use these commands for logical volume configuration:
lvremove
Deletes a logical volume.
Any file system attached to the logical volume must be
unmounted before executing the lvremove command.
Example: lvremove /dev/vgnn/lvolx
lvextend
Increases the size of an existing logical volume.
Example: lvextend –L size /dev/vgnn/lvolx
lvreduce
Decreases the size of an existing logical volume.
Any file system attached to the logical volume must be
unmounted before executing the lvreduce command.
Example: lvreduce –L size /dev/vgnn/lvolx
Caution
Data within the file system can be lost after execution of lvreduce.
Create logical volumes after you create volume groups. A logical volume
must be created for each new SCSI disk device
To create logical volumes:
1. Use the lvcreate –L command to create a logical volume.
Specify the volume size (in megabytes) and the volume group for the
new logical volume. HP-UX assigns the logical volume numbers
automatically (lvol1, lvol2, lvol3). Use the following capacity values
for the size parameter:
OPEN-K = 1740
OPEN-3 = 2344
OPEN-8 = 7004
OPEN-9 = 7004
OPEN-E = 13888
Installation
45
OPEN-L = 34756
OPEN-V = 61432
To calculate S1 for CVS, LUSE, and CVS LUSE volumes, first use
the vgdisplay command to display the physical extent size (PE Size)
and usable number of physical extents (Free PE) for the volume.
Calculate the maximum size value (in MB) as follows:
S1 = (PE Size) × (Free PE)
Logical volumes can span multiple physical volumes. Use the
diskinfo command for extended LUNs.
Example
Create an OPEN-3 logical volume the size of the physical volume,
using 2344 for the size parameter. An OPEN-9 volume uses 7040 for
the size parameter to create a logical volume the size of the physical
volume.
# lvcreate –L 2344 /dev/vg06
Logical volume "/dev/vg06/lvol1" has been
successfully created with character device
"/dev/vg06/rlvol1".
Logical volume "/dev/vg06/lvol1" has been
successfully extended.
Volume Group configuration for /dev/vg06 has been
saved in /etc/1vmconf/vg06.cof.
2. Use the lvdisplay command to verify that the logical volume was
created correctly.

3. Repeat steps 1 and 2 for each logical volume to be created.
You can create only one logical volume at a time. However, you can
verify multiple logical volumes at a time.
Creating the file systems
Create the file system for each new logical volume on the disk array. The
default file system types are:
• HP-UX OS version 10.20 = hfs or vxfs, depending on entry in the
/etc/defaults/fs file
• HP-UX OS version 11.0 = vxfs
• HP-UX OS version 11.i = vxfs
To create file systems:
1. Use the newfs command to create the file system using the logical
volume as the argument.
Installation
47
Example
# newfs /dev/vg06/rlvol1
newfs: /etc/default/fs is used for determining the
file system type
mkfs (hfs): Warning -272 sectors in the last

Setting the I/O timeout parameter
Set the I/O timeout value for each disk device to 30 seconds.
To change the I/O timeout parameter:
1. Verify the current I/O timeout value using the pvdisplay command:
Example
# pvdisplay /dev/dsk/c0t6d0

Example
# pvchange -t 30 /dev/dsk/c0t6d0
This result is displayed:
Physical volume "/dev/dsk/c0t6d0" has been
successfully changed.
Volume Group configuration for /dev/vg06 has been
saved in /etc/lvmconf/vg06.cof
3. Verify that the new I/O timeout value is 30 seconds using the pvdisplay
command:
Example
# pvdisplay /dev/dsk/c0t6d0
Current values are now displayed, confirming that the new I/O timeout

4. Repeat the above steps for each new disk that is connected to the system.
Creating the mount directories
Create a mount directory for each logical volume. Choose a unique name
for each mount directory that identifies the logical volume.
Example
The following example shows the root directory as the location for the
mount directories.
To create a mount directory for each logical volume:
1. Use mkdir with the new mount directory name as the argument to create
the mount directory.
# mkdir /AHPMD-LU00
2. Use the ls –x command to verify the new mount directory.
# ls -x
AHPMD-LU00
floppy
bin
home
dev
hstsboof
device
kadb
etc
export
kernel
lib
3. Repeat steps 1 and 2 for each logical volume on the disk array.
50
HP StorageWorks Disk Array XP Operating System Configuration Guide: HP-UX
Mounting and verifying the file systems
After the mount directories have been created, mount and verify the file
system for each logical volume.
To mount and verify the file systems:
1. Use mount to mount the file system for the volume.
Example
# mount /dev/vg06/lvol1
/AHPMD-LU00
2. Repeat step 1 for each logical volume on the disk array.
If you need to unmount a file system, use the unmount command.
3. Use the bdf command to verify that the file systems are correct. The
capacity is listed under Kbytes.
Example
# bdf
Filesystem
Kbytes used avail %used Mounted on
/ldev/vg00/lvol1 59797 59364
0 100% /
:
/ldev/vg06/lvol1 2348177
9 2113350
0% /AHPMD-LU00
4. As a final verification, perform some basic UNIX operations (for
example file creation, copying, and deletion) on each logical device to
make sure that the devices on the disk array are fully operational.
Example
#cd /AHPMD-LU00
#cp /bin/vi /AHPMD-LU00/vi.back1

Setting and verifying the auto-mount parameters
Set up and verify the auto-mount parameters for each new volume. The
/etc/checklist file (which can also be called the /etc/fstab file) contains the
auto-mount parameters for the logical volumes.
To set up and verify the auto-mount parameters:
1. Edit the /etc/checklist (/etc/fstab) file to add a line for each
OPEN-x device on the disk array. This example and the following table
show the auto-mount parameters.

representative for assistance. See “Calling the HP support center” on
page 59.
Troubleshooting
55
Error conditions
Depending on your system configuration, you may be able to view error
messages as follows:
• In Remote Web Console (Status tab)
• In Command View Advanced Edition (“Alerts” panel).
• In Command View (Event History or Event Notification panels).
Error Condition
Recommended Action
The logical devices are not
recognized by the host.
Verify that the READY indicator lights on the disk array are ON.
Verify that fiber cables are correctly installed and firmly connected.
Verify that the target IDs are properly configured. The LUNs for each
TID must start at 0 and continue sequentially without skipping any
numbers.
Verify that the TIDs/WWNs on each bus are unique. Do not install two
devices with the same ID on the same bus.
Recheck the buses for new devices.
Verify that LUSE devices are not intermixed with normal LUNs on the
same port.
Verify that the maximum number of LUSE devices per port has not
been exceeded.
Verify that the disk array host mode is set correctly.
The host does not reboot
If you power off the host without executing the shutdown process, wait
properly after hard shutdown. three minutes to allow the disk array’s internal timeout process to
purge queued commands. If the host restarts while the disk array is
processing queued commands, the host may not reboot successfully.

Note 1:
The availability of a disk type depends on the disk array.
Note 2:
The devices are defined to the host as SCSI disk devices, even though the
interface is Fibre Channel.
Note 3:
The device capacity can sometimes be changed by the BIOS or host adapter
board. This may make actual capacity different from that listed in the table.
Note 4:
The number of blocks for a CVS volume is calculated as follows:
# of blocks = (# of cylinders) × (# of heads) × (# of sectors per track)
Example 1: For an OPEN-3 CVS volume with capacity = 37 MB:
# of blocks = (53 cylinders–see Note 5) × (15 heads) × (96 sectors per
track) = 76320
Example 2: For an OPEN-V CVS volume with capacity = 49 MB:
# of blocks = (53 cylinders–see Note 5) × (15 heads) × (128 sectors per
track) = 101760
Note 5:
The number of cylinders for a CVS volume is calculated as follows (↑…↑
means that the value should be rounded up to the next integer):
OPEN-3/8/9/E: The number of cylinders for a CVS volume =
# of cylinders = ↑ (capacity (MB) specified by user) × 1024/720 ↑
Example: For an OPEN-3 CVS volume with capacity = 37 MB:
# of cylinders = ↑37 × 1024/720↑ = ↑52.62↑ (rounded up to next integer) =
53 cylinders
OPEN-V: The number of cylinders for a CVS volume =
# of cylinders = ↑ (capacity (MB) specified by user) × 16/15 ↑
Example: For an OPEN-V CVS volume with capacity = 49 MB:
# of cylinders = ↑49 × 16/15↑ = ↑52.26↑ (rounded up to next integer) = 53
cylinders
OPEN-3/8/9/E: The number of cylinders for a CVS LUSE volume =
# of cylinders = ↑ (capacity (MB) specified by user) × 1024/720 ↑ × n
66
HP StorageWorks Disk Array XP Operating System Configuration Guide: HP-UX
Example: For a CVS LUSE volume with capacity = 37 MB and n = 4
# of cylinders = ↑37 × 1024/720↑ × 4 = ↑52.62↑× 4 = 53 × 4 = 212
OPEN-V: The number of cylinders for a CVS LUSE volume =
# of cylinders = ↑ (capacity (MB) specified by user) × 16/15 ↑ × n
Example: For an OPEN-V CVS LUSE volume with capacity = 49 MB and
n=4
# of cylinders = ↑49 × 16/15↑ × 4 = ↑52.26↑× 4 = 53 × 4 = 212
Note 6:

The capacity of an OPEN-3/8/9/E CVS volume is specified in MB, not
number of cylinders. The capacity of an OPEN-V CVS volume can be
specified in MB or number of cylinders. You set the volume size using the

HP StorageWorks Disk Array XP Operating System Configuration Guide: HP-UX
SCSI TID map for Fibre Channel adapters
When an arbitrated loop (AL) is established or reestablished, the port
addresses are assigned automatically to prevent duplicate TIDs. With the
SCSI over Fibre Channel protocol (FCP), there is no longer a need for
target IDs in the traditional sense.
SCSI is a bus-oriented protocol requiring each device to have a unique
address since all commands go to all devices. For Fibre Channel, the
AL-PA is used instead of the TID to direct packets to the desired
destination.
Unlike traditional SCSI, when control of the loop is acquired, a
point-to-point connection is established from initiator to target. To enable
transparent use of FCP, the operating system maps a TID to each AL-PA.
The host maps SCSI protocol to Fibre Channel protocol and detects and
accesses Fibre Channel-connected devices using device files
(/dev/dsk/c*t*d* and /dev/rdsk/c*t*d*) in the same way as for
SCSI-connected devices. The device files for Fibre Channel-connected
devices are configured in a different way from SCSI-connected devices,
because Fibre Channel supports 126 addresses per path while SCSI
supports 16 TIDs per path.
The following table identifies the fixed mappings between the TID (drive)
values assigned by the operating system and the Fibre Channel native
addresses (AL_PA/SEL_ID) for Fibre Channel adapters. The controller
number (the dks value in /dev/dsk/dks*d*l*s*) depends on the server
configuration, and a different value is assigned per each column.
Disk array device emulations
71
The mapping cannot be done when these conditions exist:
• disk array devices and other types of devices are connected in the
same loop
• information for unused devices remains in the server system
• multiple ports participate in the same arbitrated loop

Reference information for SAM
The HP System Administrator Manager (SAM) is used to perform HP-UX
system administration functions, including:
• setting up users and groups
• configuring the disks and file systems
• performing auditing and security activities
• editing the system kernel configuration
This appendix provides instructions for:
• using SAM to configure the disk devices
• using SAM to set the maximum number of volume groups
Reference information for SAM
73
Configuring the devices using SAM
The SAM Areas window displays the system administration functions and
allows you to select the desired function. The Disks and File Systems
function allows you to configure new disk devices for LVM operations.
To configure the newly installed SCSI disk devices:
1. Select Disks and File Systems, then select Disk Devices.
74
HP StorageWorks Disk Array XP Operating System Configuration Guide: HP-UX
2. Verify that the new disk array devices are displayed in the Disk Devices
window.
3. Select the device to configure, select the Actions menu, select Add, and
then select Using the Logical Volume Manager.
4. In the Add a Disk Using LVM window, select Create... or Extend a

8. Repeat steps 3 through 7 for each new disk device on the disk array.
Reference information for SAM
75
Setting the maximum number of volume groups
using SAM
The HP-UX kernel specifies the maximum number of volume groups that
can be created. The default is 10. You may need to change this number to
accommodate new devices on the disk array. To change this number, use
the Kernel Configuration function.
To change the maximum number of volume groups:
1. Select the Kernel Configuration function, then select Configurable
Parameters.
2. In the Configurable Parameters window, select the maxvgs
parameter, select the Actions menu, and then select Modify
Configurable Parameter.
3. In the Modify Configurable Parameter window, enter the desired
maximum number of volume groups in the Formula/Value field, and
then click OK.
4. In the Configurable Parameters window, make sure that none of the
parameters are selected. Then select the Actions menu, and select
Create New Kernel.
5. When the configuration window opens, click Yes to create the new
kernel (or click No to return to the Configurable Parameters window.)
6. When the Reboot the System window opens, click OK to move the
new kernel into place and reboot the system.

LDEV
Logical device. An LDEV is created when a RAID group is carved into pieces
according to the selected host emulation mode (that is, OPEN-3, OPEN-8,
OPEN-L). The number of resulting LDEVs depends on the selected
emulation mode. The term LDEV is often used synonymously with the term
volume.
LUN
Logical unit number. A LUN results from mapping a SCSI logical unit
number, port ID, and LDEV ID to a RAID group. The size of the LUN is
determined by the emulation mode of the LDEV and the number of LDEVs
associated with the LUN. For example, a LUN associated with two OPEN3 LDEVs has a size of 4,693 MB.
LUSE
A LUN is normally associated with only a single LDEV. The LUSE feature
allows a LUN to be associated with 1 to 36 LDEVs. Essentially, LUSE makes
it possible for applications to access a single large pool of storage. The LUSE
feature is available when the HP StorageWorks LUN Configuration Manager
product is installed.
