We plan to use backend-multipathing on an 3020 local cluster. the cluster is active since more than a year.

Before we do that, we want to be sure, that software-ownership is on.

I look for a command to show this ?

Have anybody an idee ?

 

Thanks !

You can run this command with the following options

 

disk show [ -o <ownername> | -s <sysid> | -n | -v | -a]

    

Used to display information about the ownership  of the  disks.   Available  only on systems with software-based disk  ownership.

-o  lists  all  disks owned  by  the filer with the name <ownername>.

 

-s lists all disks owned by the filer with the  serialnumber <sysid>.

 

-n lists all unassigned disks.

 

-v lists all disks.

 

-a lists all assigned disks.

run the command "disk show -v" ... if it doesn't work then you don't have software disk ownership.  If it does work you will see output with the disk ownership.

Hi ,

The FAS 3000 series can use either hardware based or software based ownership. To determine run the storage show command , at the end of the output look

for SANOWN disabled that means system is using h\w based ownership otherwise sytem is using software based ownership.

To convert from h\w to s\w .. boot into maintenance mode & run disk upgrade_ownership

Run disk show , disk assign command to manage disks.

what if the disk commands are not working at all? How can I reload the binary file to the correct location to enable the disk show -n or other commands?
