This is a series of 9 posts (including this one) regarding some basic iprutils commands to be used from the GNU/Linux command line. Note that the series will not cover package installation, just utilization.
IBM Power Raid Utilities (iprutils)
No mistery here. All this commands are well described in the iprconfig man pages. All I did was sorting the most likely used and show some examples.
1) “iprconfig -c show-config” – Displaying Information.
2) “iprconfig -c show-alt-config” – Displaying Alternate Information
3) “iprconfig -c format-for-jbod [sdN | sgX]…” – Formatting disks for JBOD.
4) “iprconfig -c format-for-raid [sgX…] ” – Formatting disks for raid
5) “iprconfig -c raid-create -r <N> [sdN | sgX]……” – Creating RAIDs from AFD disks
6) “iprconfig -c show-details [sdN | sgX]…” – Showing specific disk information
7) “iprconfig -c raid-create -r <N> [sdN | sgX] -l <mylabel>” – Creating RAIDs with a label associated
8) “iprconfig -c query-array-label <mylabel>” – Verifying what is the raid for your label
