      arrayinfo - describe general characteristics of a disk array

      arrayinfo [-j |-m |-s |-ar |-dr] device_file

      arrayinfo displays summarized information for the SCSI disk array
      associated with the character device file device_file.

      By default arrayinfo returns the following information:

      +	 array vendor ID
      +	 array product ID
      +	 number of attached disk mechanisms
      +	 vendor/product type of attached disk mechanisms.  (Assumes all are
	 the same type)

      NOTE:  The array vendor ID, and product ID information are constant,
      regardless of the type and quantity of disks attached.

      arrayinfo recognizes the following options:

	 -j  Displays the current setting of certain jumper switches on each
	     disk mechanism, including:

	     Automatic Spin Up			  ( 0 Disable / 1 Enable  )
	     Parity Error Detect		  ( 0 Disable / 1 Enable  )
	     Unit Attention			  ( 0 Enable  / 1 Disable )
	     Initiate Synchronous Data Transfer	  ( 0 Disable / 1 Enable  )
	     SCSI target address of the mechanism

	 -m  Displays array mapping information, including:

	     +	The disk vendor, and model type of each disk in the array
	     +	The current status of each disk in the array, as determined
		by the array controller.
	     +	The array sub-channel, and sub-channel addresses for each
		disk in the array.

	 -s  Displays serial numbers.  This option displays serial number
	     information for the disk array controller, and all attached
	     disk mechanisms.

	 -ar Displays array revision information.  This option displays
	     revision information for the hardware, firmware, and software
	     of the array controller.

	 -dr Display disk revisions.  This option displays revision
	     information for the hardware, and firmware of each disk in the

      arrayinfo returns the following values:

	  0 Successful completion
	 -1 Command failed (an error occurred).

      This utility is only compatible with HP C2430 disk arrays.

    Series 700
      arrayinfo must be used with a device file mapped to a unit address
      that is not in use by the array controller (unconfigured).  By
      convention unit addresses 6 and 7 should not be configured.  Array
      information should be accessible by addressing either of these unit

    Series 800
      Any device file (LU) that is mapped to the disk array can be used to
      access the array information.

      arrayinfo was developed by Hewlett-Packard.
