Pinned topic HP-UX Handing IBM XIV Module Failure

‏2013-09-30T17:45:06Z | hpux xiv

We have a HPUX 11.31 w/ALUA attached to our IBM XIV.  We had a module fail and the host took roughly 45 minutes to mark the paths (2 redundant fabrics) as down and stop trying send I/O.

Has anyone else experienced something like this?  Our HP-UX 11.11 system saw some R/W errors, and just dropped the path and moved to next one in the PVLINK list, which is what I would expect it to do.

Anyone care to share experiences with me?
