28 Nov 17 An xpinfo that works in hpvm guests and on non Hitachi storage

Hitachi shops faced annoyance times two:
1. xpinfo does not work on non-Hitachi storage for example Pure storage
2. xpinfo does not work on hpvm guests depending on how the storage is passed through from the hpvm host

I now present xpinfonew which though raw and unfnished

15 Jan 16 Automated setboot check and correction

When you use drd to patch and update systems offline to reduce downtime there is an unintended impact: setboot issues.

Using HP best practices after you boot the new image the setboot -a (alternate) and -p (primary) settings are often the same.

Below is an audit and correction script that helps you track the issue and limit manual intervention and the human error it can introduce:
myserv0:root > cat 349_bootconf
#!/bin/ksh
#########################################################################
# default_umask

#HPUX_SCRIPTS=/opt/depots/scripts/system_build/HPUX
#COMMON=/opt/depots/scripts/system_build/COMMON
# Load common environment
. /var/adm/bin/.scriptenv

#
# The point here is there should be an a primary boot disk
# and an alternate boot disk and they need to be different
#
pboot=$(/usr/sbin/setboot | grep ^Primary | awk ‘{ print $NF }’ | awk -F\/ ‘{print $NF}’ |
awk -F\) ‘{print $1}’);
aboot=$(/usr/sbin/setboot | grep ^Alternate |awk ‘{ print $NF }’|awk -F\/ ‘{print $NF}’ |
awk -F\) ‘{print $1}’);

if [ “$aboot” = “$pboot” ]
then
echo “NOTICE – ${hn} The primary boot disk ${pboot} is the same as the alternate boot disk ${aboot}”
else
echo “pass – The primary boot disk ${pboot} is the different than the alternate boot disk ${aboot}”

fi

if [ “$1” = “-y” ];then
echo “This may need to be remediated manually.”

#
# attempt to figure this out in an automated fashion
#
#
# Determine what the boot dg is.
# Try to use DRD configuration to determine the alt. boot disk and set it.
> /tmp/drdstatus.tfile.txt
/opt/drd/bin/drd status -x logfile=/tmp/drdstatus.tfile.txt
CLONE_DISK=$(awk ‘/Clone Disk: /{ print $NF}’ /tmp/drdstatus.tfile.txt | awk -F\/ ‘{ print $4 }’ | awk -F\) ‘{ print $1 }’);
echo “Clone disk is ${CLONE_DISK}”
setboot -a /dev/rdisk/${CLONE_DISK}
fi

echo “#### end report $0 ${sn} ####”

There is an audit script:

myserver0:root > /var/adm/bin/audit/349_bootconf
Executing HP-UX specific environment parameters…
NOTICE – The primary boot disk disk1972 is the same as the alternate boot disk disk1972

This is wrong but is a known issue that results from my patch methodology

First step to fixing is to confirm current booted details and drd details

23 Jul 15 HP-UX patch depot tutorial

Patch Depot tutorial

So you downloaded your QPK after doing swainv analysis of what patches your HP-UX server fleet needs. You have a bundle, but you do not want the default name bundle. No problem use the create script to customize:

The following command sets the bundle name (-b ) and the tilte of the bundle ( -t )
./create_depot_hpux.11.31 -b 201510HPUXPATCHMYCOMPANY -t MYCOMPANYFALL2015
… some output

A directory depot is created
cd depot

Check the bundle list. The names should be meaningful
swlist –l bundle –s $PWD
# Initializing…
# Contacting target “myhost”…
#
# Target: myhost:/Depots/tmp/depot
#

Then a problem comes up and you need to add a new patch to your already build depot, say PHSS_44116.depot a fix to issues starting hpvm guests.
swcopy -d -s $PWD/PHSS_44116.depot \* @ /Depots/B.11.31/2015FY_second

15 Sep 14 Console information on an rx2660 (and probably others)

I found my console for an rx2660 ignite server offline. Was not able to ping it.

So I had to go a hunting on the Internet for a procedure to display the actual information from the running OS.

The IP addresses have been changed to protect the innocent.

/opt/propplus/bin/cprop -detail -c “Management Processor”

05 Jul 11 VxVM replace boot disk

Create a partition description file

(Need to update the EFI and HPSP size below according to the other root disk partition’s size)
This examples is where the new disk is disk85. Applies only to HP-UX 11.31 with VxVM as boot drive manager.

# vi /tmp/efipart

3
EFI 500MB
HPUX 100%
HPSP 400MB

Use the idisk(1M) command to partition the disk according to this file
# idisk -wf /tmp/efipart /dev/rdisk/disk85

Write EFI info to the EFI partition on the disk
# mkboot -e -l /dev/rdisk/disk85

Confirm the AUTO file entry is intact It should be  “boot vmunix”
# efi_cp -d /dev/rdisk/disk85_p1 -u /EFI/HPUX/AUTO /tmp/efi; cat /tmp/efi

If found any difference, edit /tmp/efi file  as below to update the entry “boot vmunix”
#echo “boot vmunix ” > /tmp/efi

Update auto file
#efi_cp -d /dev/rdisk/disk85_p1 /tmp/efi /EFI/HPUX/AUTO

Confirm the AUTO file entry again, It should be  “boot vmunix”
# efi_cp -d /dev/rdisk/disk85_p1 -u /EFI/HPUX/AUTO /tmp/efi; cat /tmp/efi

Initialize the disk as VXVM  boot disk

#### vxdisksetup -iB disk85_p2  ((lives in etc vx bin slashes removed due to Word Press error))

Add the disk to the existing rootdg
# vxdg -g rootdg adddisk rootdisk02=disk85_p2

Write Volume Manager volume information to the LABEL file:
# /opt/VRTS/bin/vxbootsetup rootdisk02

Display the LIF and Volume Manager label information:
# vxvmboot -v /dev/rdisk/disk85

Check the Mirror status  ( Each volume should be with two plex )
$ vxprint –htg rootdg |egrep –i “^v|^pl”

16 Mar 11 Preparation procedure for hpux boot disk (11.31)

# vi /tmp/idf
3
EFI 500MB
HPUX 100%
HPSP 400MB

Use the idisk command to initialize:

 

idisk -wf /tmp/idf /dev/rdsk/disk8

 

Replace disk with the disk you intend to use.

 

insf -e -C disk

# May need to be used in advance to insure the device is recognized.

20 May 10 clean up procedure after ignite replication of hpvm host

This errror is created by Ignite replication of an hpvm system. The following checks device integrity and cleans up errors created by Ignite replication.

hpvmcreate: ERROR (jdeautp1): Incorrect backing device type.

First check for errors with this script (I may check this in at some point)

#!/usr/bin/sh
#
# Unofficial quick and dirty passthru DSF check script
#
# It walks all /dev/pt/* files and tries to find corresponding /dev/rdisk
# or /dev/rtape files. If they are foudn their minor numbers are compared.
#
# @(#) pt_check.sh v1.1 – stanm@wtec
#

for i in $(ls /dev/pt/*)
do
# ll $i
shortname=${i##*_}
printf “checking $shortname”
minor1=$(ll $i|awk ‘{print $6}’)
# echo minor1=$minor ($i)
if [ -c /dev/rdisk/$shortname ]; then
minor2=$(ll /dev/rdisk/$shortname|awk ‘{print $6}’)
# echo minor2=$minor2 ($/dev/rdisk/$shortname)
if [[ “x$minor1” = “x$minor2″ ]]; then
printf ” – OK\n”
else
printf ” – Minor numbers are probably incorrect\n”
printf “minor1=$minor1 ($i) vs ”
printf “minor2=$minor2 (/dev/rdisk/$shortname)\n”
fi
else
# could be tape
if [ -c /dev/rtape/${shortname}_BEST ]; then
minor2=$(ll /dev/rtape/${shortname}_BEST|awk ‘{print $6}’)
if [[ “x$minor1” = “x$minor2″ ]]; then
printf ” – OK\n”
else
printf ” – Minor numbers are probably incorrect\n”
printf “minor1=$minor1 ($i) vs ”
printf “minor2=$minor2 (/dev/rtape/${shortname}_BEST)\n”
fi
else
printf ” – /dev/rdisk/$shortname or /dev/rtape/${shortname}_BEST not found – check skipped\n”
fi
fi
done

Output indicating problems:

checking disk11 – Minor numbers are probably incorrect
minor1=0x000005 (/dev/pt/pt_disk11) vs minor2=0x000008 (/dev/rdisk/disk11)
checking disk12 – Minor numbers are probably incorrect
minor1=0x000006 (/dev/pt/pt_disk12) vs minor2=0x000009 (/dev/rdisk/disk12)
checking disk13 – Minor numbers are probably incorrect
minor1=0x000007 (/dev/pt/pt_disk13) vs minor2=0x00000a (/dev/rdisk/disk13)
checking disk14 – Minor numbers are probably incorrect
minor1=0x000008 (/dev/pt/pt_disk14) vs minor2=0x00000b (/dev/rdisk/disk14)
checking disk15 – Minor numbers are probably incorrect
minor1=0x000009 (/dev/pt/pt_disk15) vs minor2=0x00000c (/dev/rdisk/disk15)
checking disk17 – OK
checking disk18 – /dev/rdisk/disk18 or /dev/rtape/disk18_BEST not found – check skipped
checking disk19 – Minor numbers are probably incorrect
minor1=0x000017 (/dev/pt/pt_disk19) vs minor2=0x000013 (/dev/rdisk/disk19)
checking disk2 – OK
checking disk22 – Minor numbers are probably incorrect
minor1=0x000018 (/dev/pt/pt_disk22) vs minor2=0x000014 (/dev/rdisk/disk22)
checking disk23 – Minor numbers are probably incorrect
minor1=0x000019 (/dev/pt/pt_disk23) vs minor2=0x000015 (/dev/rdisk/disk23)
checking disk3 – OK
checking disk5 – OK
checking disk8 – /dev/rdisk/disk8 or /dev/rtape/disk8_BEST not found – check skipped
checking disk9 – /dev/rdisk/disk9 or /dev/rtape/disk9_BEST not found – check skipped

Correction procedure:

cd /var/opt/hpvm/common/

rm -f hpvm_devinit
cd /dev/pt
ls
rm -f *
hpvmdevmgmt -I

Consider this a necessary procedure to clean up after ignite replication

26 Oct 09 HP-UX system update terminal session title bar

Nothing huge today.

I just wanted my HP-UX systems to udpate the title bar when Linux systems or Putty terminal sessions come in.

——–begin code——

NAME=”$(uname -n):${PWD}”
LEN=`echo “$NAME\c” | wc -c`
if [ “$TERM” = “xterm” ]
then
    PROMPT_COMMAND=”\033]0;${NAME}\007″
    echo $PROMPT_COMMAND
fi
——–end code———–

Tested with Putty. Will test later today with Linux.
