Hello,

I've got 2 HP-branded SCSI-320 10K hot-pluggable disks and am trying to use them in my rx1620. Technical specification of rx1620 states that only 15K drives are supported. Does that mean that 10K drives generally won't work?

I upgraded to the lastest EFI and MP firmware. EFI doesn't show me any SCSI devices. Am I missing something here?

Any clues?

Thank you very much in advance!

Best regards
Bert

P.S.: The disks were taken out from a HP 9000 storage array.
ODI doesn't show the disks either. Both channels of the internal SCSI controller are working.

That's a rather strange issue, I must say. Are the part numbers of the HDDs identical to what HP offers for the Integrity and Disk System/Storage Array line of systems?

Anyway, all [U320] SCSI HDDs, unless with physical defects (needless to say, of course), have so far worked for me in my rx2600s. Those have even included non-HP/Compaq HDDs, both 10K and 15K RPM models, thus without HP/Compaq or Integrity-specific firmware. (Or perhaps this is something specific to the rx1600/rx1620? Although that would be awkward.)

As for the EFI issue. Do other HDDs, that used to work before(?), not work anymore either? Have you tried checking the SCSI cabling? Maybe the SCSI backplane is faulty?

If firmware might really do the trick, check out the HP Services Tools CD. I recall it has all sorts of HDD firmware stored on it. Maybe reflashing will do the trick.

Eisner was upgraded to the current Multinet Release. As part of that a new host key was generated. The old key was incompatible with newer Linux.

ssh to eisner is now giving (on linux) "WARNING: REMOTE HOST IDENTIFICATION HAS CHANGED!" , Has the server key in fact changed ?

HPE only makes the most current version of OpenVMS Alpha / IA64 /VAX available to hobbyists. When I had access to the Alliance 1 program it was the same. No public downloads are allowed by HPE.
