Using Agile View in ioscan

With HP-UX 11.31 comes “agile” disk naming. Tips for using agile view in ioscan:

The -N flag turns on agile view

Before:

# ioscan -fnC disk | head -n 15
Class     I  H/W Path     Driver S/W State   H/W Type     Description
=====================================================================
disk      1  0/1/1/0.0.0.0.0                     sdisk   CLAIMED     DEVICE       HP      EH0146FARWD
                         /dev/dsk/c3t0d0     /dev/dsk/c3t0d0s2   /dev/rdsk/c3t0d0    /dev/rdsk/c3t0d0s2

                         /dev/dsk/c3t1d0     /dev/dsk/c3t1d0s2   /dev/rdsk/c3t1d0    /dev/rdsk/c3t1d0s2
                         /dev/dsk/c3t1d0s1   /dev/dsk/c3t1d0s3   /dev/rdsk/c3t1d0s1  /dev/rdsk/c3t1d0s3
disk      3  0/1/1/0.0.0.2.0                     sdisk   CLAIMED     DEVICE       HP      EH0146FARWD

disk     10  0/2/0/0/0/0/4/0/0/0.4.41.0.0.0.0    sdisk   CLAIMED     DEVICE       HP      OPEN-V
                         /dev/dsk/c6t0d0   /dev/rdsk/c6t0d0
disk     11  0/2/0/0/0/0/4/0/0/0.4.41.0.0.0.1    sdisk   CLAIMED     DEVICE       HP      OPEN-V
                         /dev/dsk/c6t0d1   /dev/rdsk/c6t0d1

After:

# ioscan -fnNC disk | head -n 15
Class     I  H/W Path  Driver S/W State   H/W Type     Description
===================================================================
disk      5  64000/0xfa00/0x0   esdisk   CLAIMED     DEVICE       HP      EH0146FARWD

                      /dev/disk/disk5_p1   /dev/disk/disk5_p3   /dev/rdisk/disk5_p1  /dev/rdisk/disk5_p3
disk      6  64000/0xfa00/0x1   esdisk   CLAIMED     DEVICE       HP      EH0146FARWD

                      /dev/disk/disk6_p1   /dev/disk/disk6_p3   /dev/rdisk/disk6_p1  /dev/rdisk/disk6_p3
disk      7  64000/0xfa00/0x2   esdisk   CLAIMED     DEVICE       HP      EH0146FARWD

                      /dev/disk/disk7_p1   /dev/disk/disk7_p3   /dev/rdisk/disk7_p1  /dev/rdisk/disk7_p3
disk      9  64000/0xfa00/0x4   esdisk   CLAIMED     DEVICE       Optiarc DVD RW AD-5590A
                      /dev/disk/disk9   /dev/rdisk/disk9
disk     68  64000/0xfa00/0xe   esdisk   CLAIMED     DEVICE       HP      OPEN-V
                      /dev/disk/disk68   /dev/rdisk/disk68

Use -m dsf to translate between old-school and agile device special files

Old to new:

# ioscan -m dsf /dev/dsk/c6t0d1
Persistent DSF           Legacy DSF(s)
========================================
/dev/disk/disk69         /dev/dsk/c6t0d1

New to old (a great way to list multiple paths!):

# ioscan -m dsf /dev/disk/disk69
Persistent DSF           Legacy DSF(s)
========================================
/dev/disk/disk69         /dev/dsk/c6t0d1
                         /dev/dsk/c10t0d1
