This TechFile provides information about the Array Support Library (ASL) for IBM DS4xxx Series Arrays in Active-Passive (A/P) mode on Veritas Volume Manager (tm) 5.0 and later for HP-UX 11iv2 (11.23) operating system. For general information about ASLs, see TechNote 249446 (link in the Related section of this TechFile) ASL Package Name: VRTSLSIasl ASL Package Description: Array Support Library for LSI Arrays. ASL Package version: 1.0 Supported versions of Veritas Volume Manager: 5.0 and later Supported Arrays: IBM DS4xxx series of Arrays (DS4100, DS4200, DS4300, DS4400, DS4500, DS4700 and DS4800) Supported Mode: A/P Note: Please refer to TechNote 283282 (link provided in the Related Documents section below) for guidelines on array configuration supported with DMP. Installation Instructions: 1. Before adding any ASL package, ensure Veritas Volume Manager is installed and enabled: # vxdctl mode mode: enabled 2. At the bottom of this TechFile, click on Download Now to download the ASL tar package into /tmp/asl # mkdir /tmp/asl # cd /tmp/asl 3. After downloading VRTSLSI_HPUX11.23_5.0_1.0.tar_337622.gz, verify the cksum of the file # cksum VRTSLSI_HPUX11.23_5.0_1.0.tar_337622.gz 4141197167 98561 VRTSLSI_HPUX11.23_5.0_1.0.tar_337622.gz 4. Uncompress the file and extract the packages # gunzip VRTSLSI_HPUX11.23_5.0_1.0.tar_337622.gz # tar xvf VRTSLSI_HPUX11.23_5.0_1.0.tar_337622 5. Install the ASL using 'swinstall' command # swinstall -s `pwd` VRTSLSIasl 6. After the packages are installed, execute the vxdctl enable command to claim the disk array(s) # vxdctl enable Note: In some cases, it has been reported that the installation of the ASL 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 7. After executing vxdctl enable and/or vxconfigd -k, verify the output of the vxddladm listsupport and vxddladm listversion commands as follows: # vxddladm listsupport ATTR_NAME ATTR_VALUE ======================================================================= LIBNAME VID IBM, SUN, STK SGI, LSI, ENGENIO ARRAY_TYPE A/P, A/PF-LSI ARRAY_NAME DS4300-, DS4100-, FAStT500- FAStT200, DS4500-, DS4400 IBM-FAStT, DS4800-, DS4700- DS5100, DS3400, DS3200 DS3300, SUN6130-, SUN6140- SUN6540-, ST2540-, SUN2510- SUN2530-, SUN2530-, ST6580_6780- SUN6180-, STK-ARRAY, D280 D220, D240, D178 FLEXLINE, Sun 6540, LSI- TP9300-, TP9400-, TP9500- TP9700-, IS500-, IS4600- ENGENIO- # vxddladm listversion has version string: vm-5.0-rev-1.
