NwArrayConfig.py script errors on Series 5 Gear (older script versions)

I'm sure most of you are now starting to regularly deploy the new Series 5 Hardware. Many of us have used the NwArrayConfig script (2.1 / 2.2) versions in the past, but you may encounter issues when running these older scripts on Series 5 Gear with "Multiple DACs on Concentrators specifically" It has been suggested to me to use the new script located in "/opt/rsa/saTools". You can also acquire this also by downloading the following rpm;

 

rsa-sa-tools-10.6.1.1-118.4.eb0e5a2.el6.noarch.rpm

 

DO NOT use the NwArrayCfg script in the opt/rsa/saTools directory from any release earlier than the release listed above. It will incorrectly configure the first two drives in each Packet Decoder DAC into a RAID 0 Configuration.

Hello Everyone,

 

This Article contains the error(s) and the workaround for this particular issue.

 

I encountered the issue below while deploying some S5 gear for a customer. The deployment consisted of (2) S5 Decoders with (5) DACs each, and (2) S5 Concentrators with (4) DACs each. The gear was re-imaged/down-revved to 10.4.0.2.J because the customer was running at version 10.4.1.4 at the time of the installation. After the gear was spun up and IP’d the ArrayCfg script was ran (2.2) version on each of the Decoders, and all (5) DACs on each initialized without issue, it was only the S5 Concentrators that had this issue.

 

I was able to successfully run the script the first time with the “- - action init “ option, which configured the first DAC correctly. When attempting to run the script a second time with the “ - -action add” option it failed and I got the following error message;

 

Failed!: The number of disk group sizes (3) is not valid for configuring a NextGen device. Please verify there are only 1 or 2 disk group sizes being presented to the appliance and rerun this script.

 

I ran the nwraidutil.pl script to check the status and saw the following; See in ORANGE that it appeared to have configured the second DAC, but when doing a df –Ph I could see that it indeed did not. Also toward the end of the nwraidutil.pl output it showed that I had physical disk issues. Also see in ORANGE.

At this point I attempted to “MANUALLY tear down the DAC with the by doing the following;

 

Stopped nwappliance and nwconcentrator service(s)

Un-mounted the /var/netwitness/concentrator filesystems

Ran the lvscan, vgscan, and pvscan commands and ran the appropriate lvremove, vgremove, and pvremove commands.

Edited the /etc/fstab to comment out entries that the script has made for the DAC.

 

***Be sure to comment out any entries made in /etc/fstab for the DAC. If you do not, and run he below command and reboot before re-running the script your system will not boot! ***

 

Lastly I ran the following command to remove all the drives for the 830 adapter.  

 

#/opt/MegaRAID/MegaCli/MegaCli64 -CfgLdDel –Lall –a(x)

 

 

It was at this it was discovered that the script was failing because of a conflict associated with the < /dev/sdb > physical volume. We came up with the following workaround to “trick” the script into running properly. See in RED below…

 

 --------------------------------------------------------------------

 

 

root@sanitizedhostname arrayCfg]# fdisk -l /dev/sdb

 

Disk /dev/sdb: 1999.8 GB, 1999844147200 bytes

255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 243133 cylinders

Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 4096 bytes

[root@sanitizedhostname arrayCfg]# pvcreate /dev/sdb

[root@sanitizedhostname arrayCfg]# vgcreate dummy /dev/sdb

  Volume group "dummy" successfully created

[root@root@sanitizedhostname arrayCfg]# lvcreate -l +100%FREE dummy -n dummy

  Logical volume "dummy" created

 

[root@sanitizedhostname arrayCfg]# pvscan

  PV /dev/sdb    VG dummy          lvm2 [1.82 TiB / 0    free]

  PV /dev/sda2   VG VolGroup00     lvm2 [255.97 GiB / 87.97 GiB free]

  Total: 4 [28.44 TiB] / in use: 4 [28.44 TiB] / in no VG: 0 [0   ]

 

 

 --------------------------------------------------------------------

 

 

At this point we were able to start over “SUCESSFULLY” running the 2.2 script with first the “- - action init” and then the “- - action add” options.

After this we cleaned up the /dev/sdb entries were made…

 

[root@sanitizedhostname arrayCfg]# lvchange -an dummy

[root@sanitizedhostname arrayCfg]# lvremove dummy

  Logical volume "dummy" successfully removed

[root@sanitizedhostname arrayCfg]# vgremove dummy

  Volume group "dummy" successfully removed

[root@sanitizedhostname arrayCfg]# pvremove /dev/sdb

  Labels on physical volume "/dev/sdb" successfully wiped

 

 

RE-Start nwappliance and nwconcentrator service(s)
