Verifying storage connectivity

Before replacing bridges, you should verify bridge and storage connectivity. Familiarizing yourself with the command output enables you to subsequently confirm connectivity after making configuration changes.

About this task

You can issue these commands from the admin prompt of any of the controller modules in the MetroCluster configuration at the site undergoing maintenance.


Confirm connectivity to the disks by entering the following command on any one of the MetroCluster nodes: run local sysconfig -v
The output shows the disks attached to the initiator ports on the controller, and identifies the shelves connected to the FC-to-SAS bridges:
node_A_1> run local sysconfig -v
