27 Oct 14 EFI boot configuration rx7640 san boot vpmon example

EFI boot configuration

 

This example uses AUTO file to boot vpmon. This example happens to use HP-UX B.11.23 but the procedure is the same for B.11.31 though the disk paths will look different.

AUTO

boot /stand/vpmon

map –r

The bootable disks show Part1 on the disk list (highlighted). Local disks (which should not be used are SCSI, SAN disks show a WWN(also bold) output is truncated.

To set a boot disk you need to fs#:

Then cd /EFI/HPUX and run the bcfg command

In this example, the boot disks for the vpar are fs7: and fsB:

 

fs7:

cd EFI

cd HPUX

fs7: \EFI\HPUX> bcfg boot add 1 hpux.efi “HPUX primary vpar boot”

fsB: \EFI\HPUX>  bcfg boot add 2 hpux.efi “HPUX alternate vpar boot”

 

Boot menu should look like this:

 

HPUX primary vpar boot

HPUX alternate vpar boot

Recommendation: test both your options.

 

AUTO file was edited on the OS as follows:

 efi_cp -d /dev/rdsk/c18t0d0s1 -u /EFI/HPUX/AUTO AUTO
<edit with vi>
 efi_cp -d /dev/rdsk/c18t0d0s1 AUTO /EFI/HPUX/AUTO

Repeat for both boot disks.

The issue is that two different technologies, alternate link and native multipathing are in use in the same volume group.

The volume group was working but might have maintenance issues down the road. Plus I personally found it darn confusing.

We check the return code to make sure the operation was a success. Repeat for each legacy device.
No downtime though for prodcution systems I recommend working with a change request under your organizations policy.

06 Nov 13 Getting EMC disk ID’s.

We want storage to check performance on three possibly problematic LUNS.

Need to get the 4 character LUN ID’s on three disks:

disk82 disk83 and disk123

/usr/bin/inq -nodots -sym_wwn | egrep “disk82|disk83|disk123″| awk ‘{print $3}’ |awk ‘{ print substr( $0, length($0) – 3, length($0) ) }’

Output:

5423

HP-UX 11.31 September 2011 OE.

A good day is an awkful day.

21 Jun 12 When swinstall will not install: What to check

I’ve just been through another frustrating battle with swinstall and wanted a complete what to check list in the event that it won’t install software:

  1. Check that system ip address (ifconfig lan#) is the same as defined in /etc/hosts . If this is not consistent, swinstall will not work and the error message is far from meaningful.
  2. Check that /etc/nsswitch.conf exists. After a clean install it does not exist and needs to be put in place.
  3. Check that nfs is working correctly for nfs based install. Bounce nfs.client,nfs.server,nfs.core in that order to stop reverse order to start ex /sbin/init.d/nfs.core <start/stop>
  4. Use showmount -e <remotehost> to insure connectivity to remote depots.
  5. swlist -l depot -s <remote host depot>
  6. swreg -d depot $PWD on remote host after cd to depot. Remember in many scenarios remote depots in tape format will not install.
  7. /usr/sbin/swagentd -r (Should be taken after any of the above corrective steps).

07 Jun 12 awk trick of the day(month?) parsing bdf output. awk with if else logic

Ever try and do system reporting based on bdf?

Annoying as all heck that sometimes the output is two line and sometimes one? I was forced to solve that problem today.

 

if [ “$OS” = “HP-UX” ]
then
   dcmd=bdf
fi

arraypointer=0

exec $dcmd | egrep -v “%used|/dev/deviceFileSystem” | awk ‘{lvn=$1;v=$2;if (v==””) {getline;cap=$1;ucap=$2;acap=$3;puse=$4;mp=$5;printf “%s %s %s %s %s %s\n”, lvn,cap,ucap,acap,puse,mp} else {printf “%s %s %s %s %s %s\n”, $1,$2,$3,$4,$5,$6} }’ | while read -r  p1 p2 p3 p4 p5 p6
do

   #### calculations

done

Typical bdf output:

/dev/vg00/lvol9    4096000 3140019  896285   78% /var/adm/crash
/dev/vg_stgb1/lvol1
1572765696 1382813225 178080447   89% /steven05stgb

16 Feb 12 Enabling a falsely disabled OnlineJFS license

Older versions of HP-UX 11.11,11.23 and 11.31 do suffer from the OnlineJFS license disabling itself. This was due to a product defect from Symanntec which HP let into a depot a few years ago.

System had this license information:

vxlicrep[/root] # vxlicrep

Symantec License Manager vxlicrep utility version 3.02.19.0
Copyright (C) 1996-2006 Symantec Corporation. All rights reserved.

Creating a report on all VERITAS products installed on this system

—————–***********************—————–

License Key = 3JZU-WDP6-PP6C-P4O4-HS38-NPPO-P
Product Name = VERITAS File System
Serial Number = 1
License Type = PERMANENT
OEM ID = 4095

Features :=
HP_OnlineJFS = Enabled

CPU Count = Not Restricted
Platform = HP-UX
Version = 4.1
File Change Log = Enabled
Maximum number of file systems = Not Restricted

Command and response.
fsadm: /etc/default/fs is used for determining the file system type
vxfs fsadm: V-3-25255: fsadm: You don’t have a license to run this program

[/root] # vxenablef -a

After the vxenablef -a statement the fsadm command starts to work. This will is not a license bypass. If the system is not actually licensed it won’t work.

fsadm command works after this correction.

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

# vi /tmp/idf

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

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
