Hi Gurus,

Can anyone tell me the Hardware RAID configuration in HP Unix rp3440 model server containing HP UX B.11.11 OS version.

Thanks in Advance.

BR,

I dont know what you are talking of since an RP3440 is a small rack server, the hardware depends on what options you ordered: in standard it has a Dual channel Ultra160 SCSI controller and can hold 3 internal disks so it limits RAID choices dont you think?
Usually you would have 2 internal disks each on a separate channel for system purpose in mirror (RAID 1) and SAN Fiber channel HBAs for the rest...

Addendum...
You could use this command to see: Here its my RP5450...

do an

ioscan -fnC Disk

Generally the 2 internal drives are mirrored for the OS installation,

We have had a couple different configurations of RAID drives for data, on an N74xx we had a SCSI RAID array using a 4SI RAID card, when the RAID reached ESOL, we migrated to HBA Cards and mounted disks from our SAN.

I would determine what cards you are using, the 3440 is a newer box, generally you would likely mount to a SAN, But have your internals for OS.

11.11 is an older release, I believe the RP is a PA/RISC, you might consider upgrading OS to 11.20 at some point.

It the 3440 is Itanium HP recommends 11.31

Personally I use the ITRC forums a lot when it comes to HP products, if you have specific questions, you should address them there.
