List of commands to check WWN of online FC in the HPUX server. The article also includes a small script that can do this task in seconds!
For FC connectivity to storage on the HPUX server, we must share the WWN of the online FC. Getting WWN is a three-step process :
Identify FC devices under
# ioscan -fnCfc Class I H/W Path Driver S/W State H/W Type Description ================================================================== fc 0 2/0/10/1/0 fcd CLAIMED INTERFACE HP AB379-60101 4Gb Dual Port PCI/PCI-X Fibre Channel Adapter (FC Port 1) /dev/fcd0 fc 1 2/0/10/1/1 fcd CLAIMED INTERFACE HP AB379-60101 4Gb Dual Port PCI/PCI-X Fibre Channel Adapter (FC Port 2) /dev/fcd1 fc 2 2/0/12/1/0 fcd CLAIMED INTERFACE HP AB379-60101 4Gb Dual Port PCI/PCI-X Fibre Channel Adapter (FC Port 1) /dev/fcd2 fc 3 2/0/12/1/1 fcd CLAIMED INTERFACE HP AB379-60101 4Gb Dual Port PCI/PCI-X Fibre Channel Adapter (FC Port 2) /dev/fcd3
In above output, you can see
/dev/fcd0 to 3 are FC devices.
Check which FCs are online i.e. have cable connectivity with
# fcmsutil /dev/fcd0 Vendor ID is = 0x1077 Device ID is = 0x2422 PCI Sub-system Vendor ID is = 0x103C PCI Sub-system ID is = 0x12D7 PCI Mode = PCI-X 133 MHz ISP Code version = 5.4.0 ISP Chip version = 3 Topology = PTTOPT_FABRIC Link Speed = 4Gb Local N_Port_id is = 0x010300 Previous N_Port_id is = None N_Port Node World Wide Name = 0x50060b00006975ed N_Port Port World Wide Name = 0x50060b00006975ec Switch Port World Wide Name = 0x200300051e046c0f Switch Node World Wide Name = 0x100000051e046c0f N_Port Symbolic Port Name = server1_fcd0 N_Port Symbolic Node Name = server1_HP-UX_B.11.31 Driver state = ONLINE Hardware Path is = 2/0/10/1/0 Maximum Frame Size = 2048 Driver-Firmware Dump Available = NO Driver-Firmware Dump Timestamp = N/A TYPE = PFC NPIV Supported = YES Driver Version = @(#) fcd B.11.31.1103 Dec 6 2010
Check the driver state in the above output (highlighted). If it’s
ONLINE that means this FC has cable connectivity. If its
Awaiting Link UP then it does not have cable connectivity.
If it’s online check its WWN by checking
N_Port Port World Wide Name value! That’s it. So WWN of above FC is
I have compiled all the above steps in a single script that you can run and get the WWN of online FC in seconds.
First test script in test server. Run it on your own risk.
Sample output :
# sh test.sh FC : /dev/fcd0 0x50060b00006975ec FC : /dev/fcd2 0x50060b00006973c8
