Can you invoke commands on the 3PAR?

 

showhost

showvlun -a -host a-host-from-showhost

This command is currently only available on Linux or Windows (also GUI) or over ssh to the array.

(As of 3.1.2, you can install the remote CLI client on HP-UX.)

 

See SSH on p 53 of HP 3PAR InForm OS 3.1.1 CLI Administrator's Manual:

Hi,

 

Currently no similar tool exists for 3PAR like xpinfo (local query disk).  I've been told by our HP support team that this should be released in the future, but I didn't get any verification on this matter.

 

The only way, like mentionned before, is to ssh into the box and query the disks for your defined host.

 

I think it should be possible to script this, and crossreference diskinfo and sorts with the disks'WWPN's.

(e.g. showvv -d | awk '{print $2 "\"$10}' )

 

:edit: just noticed that 'showvv -showcols Name,VV_WWN' does the same as above command without awk ;-)

 

g'luck,

Nic
