How To Find Fiber Host Bus Adapter (Fiber HBA) WWN On HP-UX UNIX

Here are some useful commands for the most popular Linux/Unix operating systems to find your HBA WWN. For brevity sake I am dividing this into a number of posts. Previously covered: Linux and Solaris. Here now: HP-UX!

Useful stuff I hope, at least to me, because while we all love fiber storage, before it can even get presented to your server your Storage Admin needs to know your server’s HBA’s WWN (whether you are using a fiber switch or plugging directly). So here we go!

Oh, and because of strange google search results, you might have come here looking to find info on getting HBA WWN info on a different OS than what is featured here. So a quick run down of what I have available:

HP-UX: Finding Fiber HBA WWN

Use the commands

ioscan -fnC fc to get the HBA path
fcmsutil [HBA path] to get the full info

Sample output below..and guess what? I have two HBAs installed

If you’re here, you may also like the “extended” version

HP-UX Useful Fiber Channel and Multipath Commands modeled after a few hours of my work on a storage problem with my HP-UX server.

I had initially thought it blog-worthy since it took me a few hours to research, but questioned its blog-worthiness since..well, who the heck still used HP-UX? Being a sysadmin for close to 20 years now, I haven’t seen any HP-UX out there since my first job at a chip design company.

Sufficed to say, the blog post got quite a lot of hits and searches … so yeah, there ya go :) Hope you HP-UX guys find this useful too and take pride in your dinosaur-ness!

THAT’S ALL FOLKS!!! CHOW! ..and..RAWWRRRRR!
