Script switch links for XP array on HP-UX systems using LVM. Very helpfull during a maintenance inside SAN.

The script is using xpinfo and vgdisplay to: Check if all physical devices are protected by alternate paths on the other cluster needed to do microcode updates etc. Create a file /tmp/xpdata/vgdata that give the user many details of the LVM configuration including XP specifics. Create scripts switchto_1, switchto_2 and switchto_org, that can be used at microcodeupdates, repair of hubs, HBA's or switches to switch the links nicely to cluster1, cluster2, or the original configuration without causing timeouts (waiting) for the user. When more then one XP array is connected to a system, you will be nforced to select a serial number by using a parameter in the script.
