Hi All,

Fairly new to 3par so please forgive me if my issue is an easy one.

I have been asked to look at an old F400 (Sadly no Vendor support) that was having issues after a recent power failure. The array came back up, however shortly afterwards 14 vvols appeared in the failed state (preserved).

i logged on and noticed a few issues, not least were 4 failed disks and 3 in degraded, expired power supply batteries on all 4 nodes and a cache dimm reporting errors.

The failed disks, the batteries and the DIMM all errored before the power loss.

The 3 disks that are in a degraded state errored after the power failure

The 4 failed disks have been replaced with no issues.

The 3 degraded ones we tried to remove gracefully using the servicemag start -pdid however all 3 failed.

One of the failures was due to a chunklet mapped to a failed LD. Check the LD was not mapped to a VV (which it wasn't thankfully), deleted the LD and reran the servicemag operation. This time it worked for that one disk.

The failed disk was replaced and the disk rebuild started. After a couple of hours it failed again with chunklet move errors and said invalid device?

it was then left at this point to discuss options with the customer. However, in the meantime, 5 more volumes went into a failed state.

I have scoured google etc trying to look for similar issues but cant find any, so thought someone may know on here.

below are a few outputs

I'm taking a stab that the 3 degraded drives all contained data for one or more LD which were a part of the VVs that are failed. The VVs go into preserved mode to protect the remaining data in case you can "unfail" the drive, you simply lost a lot of drive due to cage failure or something and get them back up or accept the data loss and zero out the missing data on the volume.

I'm guessing most of this is RAID5, so once you lose 2 drives on the same LD you're out of luck.

The failed drives shouldn't be an issue as those drives have most likely copied there data to spare chunklets or rebuilt to spare chunklets a long time ago. The degraded are your problem... If my memory serves me right they say degraded until it is safe to replace them even if the disk is dead.

For the servicemags that are failing I would try and move those chunklets manually.... for the rest.... this is where I pay the vendor the big bucks.

Hi, thanks for the reply.

Yeh, 2 of the disks that failed in servicemag have 7 chunklets remaining on each that are in preserved LD's that are mapped to those vols.

As for Vendor support, exactly, always a must

Hi njdgomez23,

Did you solve the situation, i get the same scenario and a lot of data are inaccessible! , i get one disk on degraded state and the other is normal, but for those chunklets i get move_error.

Thanks in advance!!
