Storagetek's Navi-whatsit

A few useful things to know:

There's a command line interface that provides a certain amount of information
about the raid towers.

In either /usr/Navisphere/bin or /opt/Navisphere/bin there should be at least
these files.

-rw-r--r-- 1 root sys 2622 Mar 3 1999 agent.config

config file that tells the agent what to talk to, and who can talk
to what.

-r-xr-xr-x 1 root sys 3804580 Mar 27 1998 naviagent*

agent running on the box to allow query to the attached devices, is
started and stopped via /etc/init.d/agent

-r-xr-xr-x 1 root sys 1367 Jan 5 1998 naviagent.postinstall*
-r-xr-xr-x 1 root sys 3884396 Mar 27 1998 navicli*

command line interface which queries the attached device


Use 'format' to find out what scsi id the raid is attached as: [109]$ format
Searching for disks...done

0. c0t0d0
1. c1t14d0
2. c1t15d0

In this case, the raid device is c0t0d0.

To get information about that device, use:

./navicli -d c0t0d0s2

If you run navicli by itself, it will give you a (not very helpful) list of
commands. The most useful to me, thus far, has been 'getdisk'.

This produces output likes this (truncated):

If you get a 'cannot connect to device' error, there's likely a problem in
the config file. The agent.config file should have device entries like:

device c0t0d0s2 NAVISPHERE-1 "NAVISPHERE-1"

where the device name is the same as the one that you discovered through
