It will depend on the SAN storage.

 

From the server side just scan for presented LUNs and create a new VG with LVOLs on it.


Hope this helps!

Re: re : adding san storage to hp rx2660

You say there is data on the LUNs that you want to save.  Were these LUNS ever mounted to an HP-UX server in the past?  If so, were they a part of a Volume Group?

 

From the server side, use the 'ioscan -fnN' command and look for the new LUNS.  if you need to create device files, use the 'insf -H' command as appropriate.

 

Use those device files and look into using the 'vgimport' command.

Hi Vincet,

 

 

You can Post a query in HPUX  Forum also. I understand, if you have data in the disk amd an you want to migrate it , need to do some vgexport/vgimport stuff.
