ASL Package Name : VRTSibmsvc ASL Package Version : 1.0 ASL Package description: Array Support Library for IBM SANVC APM Package Name: VRTSibmsvcapm APM Package Version: 1.1 APM Package description: VERITAS Array Policy Module for IBM SANVC Supported versions of VERITAS Volume Manager: 5.0 MP3 RP2 and later Supported Arrays: IBM SANVC ( 2145, 2062 ) Supported Mode: A/A-A ( Active/Active-Asynchronous ) Installation Instructions: 1. Create a directory to store packages # mkdir /tmp/IBMSANVC_aslapm # cd /tmp/IBMSANVC_aslapm 2. At the bottom of this TechFile, click on Download Now to download the ASL/APM packages 3. After downloading VRTSibmsvc_asl_apm_vm5.0_v1.1.tar_327114.gz in /tmp/IBMSANVC_aslapm, verify the checksum # cksum VRTSibmsvc_asl_apm_vm5.0_v1.1.tar_327114.gz 3812930924 18871 VRTSibmsvc_asl_apm_vm5.0_v1.1.tar_327114.gz 4. Uncompress the file and extract the packages # gunzip VRTSibmsvc_asl_apm_vm5.0_v1.1.tar_327114.gz # tar -xvf VRTSibmsvc_asl_apm_vm5.0_v1.1.tar_327114 5. Before installing the ASL/APM packages, make sure VERITAS Volume Manager is installed and enabled # vxdctl mode mode: enabled 6. ASL Installation # installp -acgX -d VRTSibmsvc.bff VRTSibmsvc 7. APM Installation # installp -acgX -d VRTSibmsvcapm.bff VRTSibmsvcapm 8. After the packages are installed, run the vxdctl enable command to claim the disk array # vxdctl enable Note: In some cases, it has been reported that the installation of the ASL/APM does not take effect, and vxdctl enable does not claim the enclosure and devices. In such cases, you can execute the vxconfigd -k command in addition to vxdctl enable 9. After executing vxdctl enable, verify the output of the vxddladm listsupport command # vxddladm listsupport ATTR_NAME ATTR_VALUE ============================== LIBNAME VID IBM PID 2145, 2062 ARRAY_TYPE A/A-A-IBMSVC ARRAY_NAME SAN_VC 10. Verify the ASL version # vxddladm listversion has version string: vm-5.0-rev-1.VXVM version: 5.0 11. Also verify the output of vxdmpadm listapm command.
