Adding a disk

Hi,

I would like some information on adding an additional disk to a 937 LX. The part number is C5257UM Single Ended disk. The disk will reside with 2 others in a HP6000 SCSI SE external disk unit. I already have 3 disks:

io> ld
LDEV: 1 DEVNAME: OUTDEV: 0 MODE:
ID: HPC3010M1 RSIZE: 128 DEVTYPE: DISC
PATH: 52.6.0 MPETYPE: 4 MPESUBTYPE: 2
CLASS: DISC SPOOL

LDEV: 2 DEVNAME: OUTDEV: 0 MODE:
ID: HPC3010M1 RSIZE: 128 DEVTYPE: DISC
PATH: 52.5.0 MPETYPE: 4 MPESUBTYPE: 2
CLASS: DISC SPOOL

LDEV: 3 DEVNAME: OUTDEV: 0 MODE:
ID: ST32550N RSIZE: 128 DEVTYPE: DISC
PATH: 52.4.0 MPETYPE: 4 MPESUBTYPE: 2
CLASS: DISC SPOOL
Can I set the path to 52.7.0 and use ldev 4 (not currently used). How do I find the product ID number?

I have one volume set with 3 members:

io> lv
VOLUME NAME LDEV TRAN PERM VOLUME CLASS
---------------- ---- ---- ---- -----------------------------

MEMBER1 1 100% 100% DISC

How do I add a new member to the volume set? Below is the current config of the 3 disks:

MPEXL_SYSTEM_VOLUME_SET:MEMBER1 (ldev 1)
MPEXL_SYSTEM_VOLUME_SET:MEMBER2 (ldev 2)
MPEXL_SYSTEM_VOLUME_SET:MEMBER (ldev 3)


I would really appreciate any help on this.

Regards,

Mickey.

Re: Adding a disk

52.7 is the address of the SCSI controller. If you set the drive address to 7 then the whole system will crash and become unbootable.

Set the SCSI address to 3. This wway you will have 6, 5, 4, and now 3.

You may use ldev 4, no problem.

The C5257U is a 2 gigabyte drive and is as old as the hills. BTW, C5257UM *IS* the product number, it is just that the drive is so old that it is no longer even listed by HP, I went to my secret stash of old dosuments and looked it up. In the file that describes discs and other devices that can be easily sysgen'ed into the HP3000 IODFAULT.PUB.SYS there are listings for both 3.5" & 5.25" Single Ended 2 gigabyte drives. If you look carefully, they are all the same and use the same settings.

To sysgen the drive into the system follow these instructions:

1. Set the SCSI address on the drive to three by either setting the address on the tower itself or putting jumpers on the drive.
2. Type SYSGEN and press return
3. Type IO and press return
4. Type

AD 4 52.3 HPC3010M1

press return

5. Type HOLD and press return
6. Type exit and press return
7. Type KEEP and press return
8. Type EXIT and press return.
9. Reboot your system

After rebooting your system do the following:

1. Type DSTAT ALL and press return
Your new drive should be visible
2. Type VOLUTIL and press return
3. Type SCRATCHVOL 4 and press return
This initializes the drive to the scratch state
4. Type

NEWVOL MPEXL_SYSTEM_VOLUME_SET:MEMBER4 4 100 100

and press return

5. Do another :DSTAT ALL and check your work
6. Type exit and press return.

You're done!

Questions? Post 'em here, I'll turn notify on.

Re: Adding a disk

Thanks for the advice on 52.7 Paul!!
I'll give this a go next week - just got my hands on a C5257UM. I tried to respond earlier but could not get through to the server.

Regards,

Mickey
