Make the luns visible to the server as disk devices.

The steps for this are:

  • Determine what the server sees now - the "before" picture"
    • ioscan -fnkC disk 
  • Scan for new disk devices - this should be the luns allocated from the san (the will be just a hardware path and will not have a device file yet)
    • ioscan -fnC disk
  • Create the device files
    • insf
  • Check to make sure the the luns now have device files associated with them
    • ioscan -fnC disk
  • Use the xpinfo command from HP to list the device to lun association (available with the HP "XP" series of sans).
    • xpinfo -il
