    Select SAN Settings and enter the following information: Enter a name in SAN Name. You can use the default SAN Name, but HP recommends that you change it to a name that is meaningful to you. This name is used when generating reports, so it should be one that is easily recognized as being associated with the SAN on which data collection will be done.

    Click Switch Settings and enter the following information: Enter the IP Address of the primary switch for the SAN for which you want a report. Information will be collected for all devices connected to this switch. Clear Discover connected switches. This option automatically detects all switches connected to the switch identified by the IP address.

Double-click the saved file to extract the processed report. The processed report is extracted and stored at: <Install_Dir>\ExtractedProcessReports\<SAN Name>\.

  • Page 27: Selecting An Appropriate Time To Perform An Online Upgrade

    NOTE: After completing required upgrades, HP recommends that you create a new SAN Visibility report to verify that all upgrades are were successful. Selecting an appropriate time to perform an online upgrade To ensure the success of an online upgrade, selecting the appropriate time is essential. Because the online firmware upgrade is performed while host I/Os are being serviced, the I/O load can impact the upgrade process.

  • Page 28: Hp Command View Evaperf Command Options, Running Hp Command View Evaperf

    • Identify a period of time when you anticipate the I/O load on the storage system will be low. This is the window to focus on when running HP Command View EVAPerf to gather I/O data. • Run HP Command View EVAPerf to gather I/O data during the chosen window. For example, if you suspect that I/O load may be low between midnight and 2 AM on Sunday morning, run HP Command View EVAPerf during this period.

  • Page 29

    When the command has completed, open the file in an ASCII editor. Identify any instances where the IOPS and throughput limits have been exceeded. If the limits have not been exceeded, this may be a good period to perform the upgrade. For example, as a guideline, values should be less than 7000 IOPS and less than 70 MB/s.

  • Page 32: Hp-ux, Default Timeout Values, Checking Or Changing Timeouts, Ibm Aix Timeout Settings

    IMPORTANT: Depending on your operating system, changing timeout values may require a reboot of your system. To minimize disruption of normal operations, schedule reboots one node at a time. In a cluster environment, plan your reboots one node at a time and shut down the passive node to avoid unwanted automatic failover.

  • Page 33: Linux

    Linux NOTE: RHEL4/SLES9 SCSI device has a default 30 second timeout value and up to 5 retries can occur. RHEL5/SLES10 SCSI device has a default 60 second timeout and also up to 5 retries can occur. In general, these timeout periods are adequate to accommodate an EVA online firmware upgrade. The following configuration recommendations apply to both RedHat and SuSE.

  • Page 34: Microsoft Windows, Checking Timeout Values, Netware

    NOTE: • The timeout values must be increased for Emulex single path (without multipath support) and QLogic single path being used in the environment. This is not only important for online upgrades but for general data integrity. • Online controller firmware upgrades are supported with Linux boot devices. Mac OS X Online firmware upgrade is not supported for Mac OS X.

  • Page 35: Openvms, Solaris, Checking Or Changing Timeouts, Vmware

    OpenVMS The limit for LUN timeout is 120 seconds. NOTE: OpenVMS handles the controller reboot seen at the conclusion of the firmware update process. Disks on the controller display a Mount Verify status during the controller reboot but regain Mounted status and resume I/O operations upon the completion of the controller reboot.

    NOTE: For Microsoft Windows guests: set the windows SCSI timeout registry to 60secs, as follows: In the windows registry, find HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\ Services\Disk\TimeOutValue Set this value to 60 decimal (3Ch). The ESX layer (VMFS, the VMware filesystem) controls timeouts of VMFS I/O. These values may vary from ESX release to release.
