After downloading VRTSLSIALUAasl_apm_HP11iv3_vm5.0_v3.tar_346861.gz, verify the checksum of the file # cksum VRTSLSIALUAasl_apm_HP11iv3_vm5.0_v3.tar_346861.gz 2372941335 92610 VRTSLSIALUAasl_apm_HP11iv3_vm5.0_v3.tar_346861.gz 4. Uncompress the file and extract the packages # gunzip VRTSLSIALUAasl_apm_HP11iv3_vm5.0_v3.tar_346861.gz # tar xvf VRTSLSIALUAasl_apm_HP11iv3_vm5.0_v3.tar_346861 5. Before adding any package, ensure Veritas Volume Manager is installed and enabled # vxdctl mode mode: enabled 6. Install the ASL as follows: # swinstall -s `pwd`/asl VRTSLSIALUAasl 7. Install the APM as follows: # swinstall -s `pwd`/apm VRTSLSIALUAapm 8. After the packages are installed, you must execute 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 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, SUN PID All ARRAY_TYPE ALUA-LSI ARRAY_NAME DS4800-, DS4700-, DS5100- ST6580_6780-, SUN6180- 10.
