Create a directory for ASL package # mkdir /tmp/asl # cd /tmp/asl 2. At the bottom of this TechFile, click on Download Now to download the package 3. After Downloading VRTSPILLAR-Axiom-1.0-1.0_Linux.tar_335323.gz, verify checksum of the file # cksum VRTSPILLAR-Axiom-1.0-1.0_Linux.tar_335323.gz 3477913080 25821 VRTSPILLAR-Axiom-1.0-1.0_Linux.tar_335323.gz 4. Unzip the file and extract the rpm package # gunzip VRTSPILLAR-Axiom-1.0-1.0_Linux.tar_335323.gz # tar -xvf VRTSPILLAR-Axiom-1.0-1.0_Linux.tar_335323 Note: Verify that there are five rpm packages as part of the tar ball. There is one ASL package per distribution VRTSPILLAR-Axiom-1.0-1.0_RHEL4.i686.rpm VRTSPILLAR-Axiom-1.0-1.0_RHEL5.i686.rpm VRTSPILLAR-Axiom-1.0-1.0_SLES9.i586.rpm VRTSPILLAR-Axiom-1.0-1.0_SLES10.i586.rpm VRTSPILLAR-Axiom-1.0-1.0_SLES11.x86_64.rpm Following are the installation instructions for RHEL5 distribution Similar steps can be followed for other distributions (RHEL5/ SLES9 / SLES10/ SLES11) 5. Before adding any ASL package, ensure Veritas Volume Manager is installed and enabled: # vxdctl mode mode: enabled 6. ASL Installation # rpm -ivh VRTSPILLAR-Axiom-1.0-1.0_RHEL5.i686.rpm 7. After the package is installed, you must 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 does not take effect, and the vxdctl enable command does not claim the enclosure and devices. In such cases, you can execute the vxconfigd -k command in addition to vxdctl enable 8. After executing vxdctl enable and vxconfigd -k, verify the output of the vxddladm listsupport command # vxddladm listsupport ATTR_NAME ATTR_VALUE ===================================== LIBNAME VID Pillar PID Axiom 300, Axiom 500, Axiom 600 ARRAY_TYPE A/A-A ARRAY_NAME PILLAR-AXIOM 9.
