P9000Info Release Notes
P9000Info Release Notes

Version: 21.00.00

..Description

P9000Info is a command-line utility provided with the HP StorageWorks P9000 Performance Advisor Software and Array Manager Software. It is used to obtain the configuration information of the logical unit numbers (LUNs) exposed to the XP or the P9000 disk arrays.

This document describes the P9000Info 21.00.00 enhancements, fixes, limitations, and other additional information.

IMPORTANT: P9000Info was called XPInfo in versions earlier to v5.0. Note that only the product title has changed from XPInfo to P9000Info. The existing binary, commands, and the product functionality still remains the same.

..Supported platforms

P9000Info supports all the operating platforms that are currently supported by the P9000 Performance Advisor Windows and non-Windows host agents. For more information, see the HP StorageWorks P9000 Performance Advisor Software OS Support Matrix. You can download this document from the HP Manuals site for P9000 Performance Advisor, following is the URL:

Multipathing Input/Output (MPIO) platforms

P9000Info also supports the following MPIO platforms:

  • IBM AIX: HDLM 5.7 or later

  • Windows: HP DSM v2.00.02

  • HP-UX

    • HP-UX 11i v3: Native multipathing

    • Earlier versions of HP-UX: Secure Path 3.0F.02F.02F.patch

  • Linux: HDLM 5.9.3.01 and VERITAS Storage Foundation 5.0

Vmware ESX

P9000Info also supports the following VMWare ESX platforms:

  • ESX 3.5 (x64)

  • ESX 3.5 (x64) (Service Pack U2)

  • ESX 3.5 (x64) (Service Pack U3)

  • ESX 3.5 (x64) (Service Pack U4)

  • ESX 4.0 (x64)

..Enhancements

None.

..Fixes

P9000Info 21.00.00 includes fixes for the following:

  • P9000Info does not work for a P9500 Disk Array that is configured with RAID groups greater than 18-1.

  • P9000Info gives incorrect array serial number, if the serial number of P9500 Disk Array is greater than 65535.

..Notes

If you are using P9000 Performance Advisor Solaris, AIX or HP-UX host agent, view the SLPR and CLPR information for your XP disk arrays through P9000 Performance Advisor, as P9000Info for these host agents displays random CLPR and SLPR values (example of random values are 256, 122, or zero).

To view the SLPR and CLPR values through P9000 Performance Advisor:

  1. On the P9000 Performance Advisor Home page, click Array View in the left pane.

  2. Click the + sign for Arrays.

  3. From the list of XP and P9000 disk arrays that are monitored by P9000 Perf Advisor, click the + sign for the XP and the P9000 disk array, for which you want to view the related SLPR and CLPR data.

  4. Select LDEV from the list displayed.

  5. On the Array View LDEV screen, select the Column Settings check box.

  6. In the LDEV Column Settings list, select the check box forSLPR and CLPR.

  7. In the LDEV table, click the LDEV ID column heading and provide the cu:ldev ID for which you want to view the SLPR and CLPR data.

  8. Click OK.

The corresponding SLPR and CLPR data for the cu:ldev ID is displayed under the respective column headings (SLPR and CLPR) in the LDEV table.

NOTE: For P9000 disk array, the SLPR value is displayed as "--".

..Additional information

P9000Info will display all the fields correctly if RMLIB is installed.

NOTE: If RMLIB is not installed, the RAID type information, RAID level, and disk mechanics information will be either incorrectly displayed or will not be displayed on the screen.
