ioscan shows new disks after SAN firmware upgrade

[ Edited ]

I have taken ownership of an HPUX 11.11 box. Last week the storage team upgraded the firmware on the Dell Compellent and now the HP box doesn't fully boot. This is what I've figured out so far. vg00 was actually a mixture of 2 internal disk and 2 SAN disk. The OS partially boots and I get a login prompt but I can't log in because it says it can't find path for shared library: libxti.2


If I do a vgdisplay, the disk names it shows are different then what an ioscan shows. See below

Is this fixable?

 

Thanks for any advice you may have!!!

 

BTW... I got the following info by logging into single user mode

 

 

vgdisplay output-

Re: ioscan shows new disks after SAN firmware upgrade

Hello,

 

Yes, you can fix the problem.

 

you should boot in mantainace mode:

 

boot /stan/vmux -lm

 

And then you need to export/import vg00.

 

Once you have imported vg00 with the right disks you need to fix the LABEL on the disks with lvrmboot/lvlnboot.

 

Then a final reboot and you are ready to go.

Windows?, no thanks
