na_acpadmin - Commands for managing Alternate Control Path Administrator


acpadmin command argument ...


The acpadmin utility commands manage the ACP administrator and ACP processors used by the storage subsystem.


acpadmin [configure | list_all]


The acpadmin configure command allows the user to configure or reconfigure the ACP. The user supplies or uses the default values for the following configurable elements of the ACP via prompts from the command line:
  -network interface: The ethernet port that will be used by the ACP
  -network domain: The IP address used by the ACP
  -netmask: The netmask used by the ACP

  The acpadmin list_all command lists all the ACP processors in view with their corresponding IP address, MAC address, protocol version, Assigner ACPA's system ID, Shelf serial number, Inband expander ID and IOM type. For all the ACPPs which are not accessible through inband there will be no "shelf S/N" and "Inband ID".

This command output contains one row for each ACPP connected to the storage controller.

The IP Address column displays the IP address assigned to the ACPP.

The MAC Address column displays the ipv4 MAC address of the ACPP.

The Reset Cnt column displays the number of times the corresponding expander has been reset through the ACPP. This count does not persist across storage controller boots.

The Last Contact column displays the number of seconds elapsed since the ACP administrator received the last bootp request from the ACPP.

The Protocol Version displays the protocol version of the ACPP.

The Assigner ACPA ID column displays the system ID of the storage controller from which the IP address of the ACPP was originally assigned.

The Shelf S/N displays the disk shelf serial number of the shelf in which ACPP is located.

The Current State gives the state code of the ACPP. More details can be displayed using the storage show acp command. Possible values are:

[0x5] active

[0x1] inactive (initializing)

[0x2] inactive (not ready)

[0x3] inactive (waiting for in-band information)

[0x4] inactive (no in-band connectivity)

[0x6] not-responding (last contact at: Sat Jan 31 21:40:58 GMT 2009")

[0x7] inactive (upgrading firmware)

[0x8] not-responding (last contact at: Sat Jan 31 21:40:58 GMT 2009") -- this non-responding state indicates that an error was encountered when attempting to connect to this module.

[0x9] inactive (need firmware update)

The Inband ID column displays the ID of the ACPP as seen by the SAS inband channel. For example, inband ID 7c.2.A means that the ACPP is connected to adapter 7c, disk shelf 2 on slot A.

The IOM Type displays IOM type of the ACPP; for example, IOM3 or IOM6.


No known bugs exist at this time.
