After resolving the back-end configuration errors detected by storage errors show, you must check whether the existing back-end configuration matches the configuration you intended, and fix issues arising out of any mismatch.

Steps
  1. Enter the following command: storage array config show

    The storage array config show output groups information about LUN groups, LUN counts, and paths by storage array, as the following example for an HA pair shows:

    mysystem1::> storage array config show
                 LUN   LUN
    Node         Group Count  Array Name      Array Target Port   Initiator
    ------------ ----- ----- ---------------  ------------------  ---------
    mysystem1a    0    10     DGC_RAID5_1      5005076303030124       1a
                                               5005076303088124       1b
                                               5005076303130124       1c
                                               5005076303188124       1d
    mysystem1b    0    10     DGC_RAID5_1      5005076303030124       1a
                                               5005076303088124       1b
                                               5005076303130124       1c
                                               5005076303188124       1d

  2. Check the storage array config show output for each problem statement in the following table, and refer to the appropriate information for solution.

    If you find this problem…​ See this information…​

    More array LUN groups than expected

    Fewer array LUN groups than expected

    Array LUN groups do not show the number of LUNs expected

    Fewer paths than expected
