This TechFile provides information on the Array Support Library (ASL) and the Array Policy Module (APM) for Huawei OceanStor / HuaSy Oceanspace Series Arrays (A/P-F) on Veritas Volume Manager (tm) 5.0 MP3 RP1 and later for AIX For general information about ASLs, see TechNote 249446 (link in the Related Documents section of this TechFile) ASL Package Name: VRTSHUAWEIasl ASL Package Description: VERITAS Array Support Library for Huawei OceanStor / HuaSy Oceanspace Series Arrays APM Package Name: VRTSHUAWEIapm APM Package Description: Array Policy Module for HUAWEI OceanStor / HuaSy Oceanspace Series Arrays Package Version: 1.2 Supported versions of Veritas Volume Manager: 5.0MP3 RP1 and later Supported Arrays: Huawei OceanStor / HuaSy Oceanspace Series Arrays ( S5300, S5500, S5600, S6800E, S2300, S2300E, S2600F, S2600C, VIS6300, VIS6600 ) in A/P-F mode NOTE: 1. VxVM 5.0MP3 RP1 is the minimum Veritas Volume Manager version that is required for the ASL and APM to function correctly. 2. All the arrays are supported in Fibre Channel (FC) mode only Installation Instructions: 1. Create a directory to store Huawei OceanStor / HuaSy Oceanspace ASL and APM package # mkdir /tmp/HUAWEI_ASLAPM # cd /tmp/HUAWEI_ASLAPM 2. At the bottom of this TechFile, click on Download Now to download the ASL and APM package 3. After downloading VRTSHUAWEIasl_apm_AIX_vm5.0MP3RP1_v2.0.tar_336602.gz in /tmp/HUAWEI_ASLAPM/ directory, verify the cksum # cksum VRTSHUAWEIasl_apm_AIX_vm5.0MP3RP1_v2.0.tar_336602.gz 1228508756 20792 VRTSHUAWEIasl_apm_AIX_vm5.0MP3RP1_v2.0.tar_336602.gz 4. Uncompress the file and extract the packages # gunzip VRTSHUAWEIasl_apm_AIX_vm5.0MP3RP1_v2.0.tar_336602.gz # tar xvf VRTSHUAWEIasl_apm_AIX_vm5.0MP3RP1_v2.0.tar_336602 5. Before adding ASL/APM package, ensure Veritas Volume Manager is installed and enabled # vxdctl mode mode: enabled 6. Install the ASL as follows: # installp -acgX -d VRTSHUAWEIasl.bff VRTSHUAWEIasl 7. Install the APM as follows: # installp -acgX -d VRTSHUAWEIapm.bff VRTSHUAWEIapm 8. After the packages are installed, execute vxdctl enable command to claim the disk array and to load the new APM # vxdctl enable Note: In some cases, it has been reported that the installation of the ASL and/or APM does not take effect, and vxdctl enable does not claim the enclosure and devices. In such cases, you can execute the vxconfigd -k -m enable command in addition to vxdctl enable. 9. After executing vxdctl enable, verify the output of the vxddladm listsupport command # vxddladm listsupport libname=libvxhuawei.so ATTR_NAME ATTR_VALUE ================================================================================================= LIBNAME libvxhuawei.so VID HUAWEI, HuaSy PID S5300, S5500, S5600 S2300, S2100, V1800 V1500, VIS6000, S2300E S2600, S6800E ARRAY_TYPE A/P-C, A/PF-HUAWEI ARRAY_NAME HUAWEI-S5300-, HUAWEI-S5500-, HUAWEI-S5600- HUAWEI-S2300-, HUAWEI-S2100-, HUAWEI-V1800- HUAWEI-V1500-, HUAWEI-VIS6000-, HUAWEI-S2300E- HUAWEI-S2600-, HUAWEI-S6800E-, HuaSy-S5300- HuaSy-S5500-, HuaSy-S5600-, HuaSy-S2300- HuaSy-S2100-, HuaSy-V1800-, HuaSy-V1500-, HuaSy-VIS6000- HuaSy-S2300E-, HuaSy-S2600-, HuaSy-S6800E- 10. Verify the ASL version # vxddladm listversion libname=libvxhuawei.so libvxhuawei.so has version string: vm-5.0-rev-2. VXVM version: 5.0 11. Also verify the output of vxdmpadm listapm command. The APM should be in Active state. # vxdmpadm listapm dmphuawei Filename: dmphuawei APM name: dmphuawei APM version: 1 Feature: VxVM VxVM version: 50 Array Types Supported: A/PF-HUAWEI Depending Array Types: A/P State: Active ASL Package Information: # lslpp -l VRTSHUAWEIasl Fileset Level State Description ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Path: /usr/lib/objrepos VRTSHUAWEIasl 1.2.0.0 COMMITTED VERITAS Array Support Library for Huawei OceanStor / HuaSy Oceanspace Series Arrays Path: /etc/objrepos VRTSHUAWEIasl 1.2.0.0 COMMITTED VERITAS Array Support Library for Huawei OceanStor / HuaSy Oceanspace Series Arrays APM Package Information: # lslpp -l VRTSHUAWEIapm Fileset Level State Description ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Path: /usr/lib/objrepos VRTSHUAWEIapm 1.2.0.0 COMMITTED Array Policy Module for HUAWEI OceanStor / HuaSy Oceanspace Series Arrays Path: /etc/objrepos VRTSHUAWEIapm 1.2.0.0 COMMITTED Array Policy Module for HUAWEI OceanStor / HuaSy Oceanspace Series Arrays
