Jump to solution

Hi All,

I am facing a powerpath issue with one of the host.Power path showing only one path to GK devices.I checked the SCSI settings for the FA port

C:\Program Files (x86)\EMC\SYMCLI\bin>symcfg -sid 427 -dir 10f -v list

SCSI Flags

   {

     Negotiate_Reset(N)           : Disabled

     Soft_Reset(S)                : Disabled

     Environ_Set(E)               : Disabled

     HP3000_Mode(B)               : Disabled

     Common_Serial_Number(C)      : Enabled

     Disable_Q_Reset_on_UA(D)     : Disabled

     Sunapee(SCL)                 : Disabled

     Siemens(S)                   : Disabled

     Sequent(SEQ)                 : Disabled

     Avoid_Reset_Broadcast(ARB)   : Disabled

     Server_On_AS400(A4S)         : Disabled

     SCSI_3(SC3)                  : Enabled

     SPC2_Protocol_Version(SPC2)  : Enabled

     SCSI_Support1(OS2007)        : Enabled

   }

C:\Program Files (x86)\EMC\SYMCLI\bin>symaccess -sid 427 -type init show USATLKIFSEC12_IG -detail

No. the concept at initiator level come to picture when the same FS is shared by multiple OS and they need separate director bits. So what you see in dir level is what is needed for the OS in question then no need to set at HBA level again. I would sat director level is gloabal, HBA level is used to override that.

here "port Flag Overrides: No" that mean that nothing is set  at HBA/initiator level. So all u have is what you posted from director level itself
