This README File provides information on the Array Support Library (ASL) and Array Policy module (APM) for SUN LSI variant arrays (SUN6130, SUN6140,SUN6180,SUN6540,SUN2540,SUN2530,SUN2510,STK6580,STK6780 and Flexline 200/300 series) in Active-Passive Explicit Failover(A/P-F) mode on Veritas Volume Manager (tm) 5.0MP3, 5.0MP4 and later, 5.0RU1, 5.0RU3 and 5.0RU4 for Linux ASL Package Name: VRTSLSI-ALL ASL Package Description: LSI MultiVID Array Support Library ASL Package Version: 5.0-1.0 (For PPC and x86_64 architecture) and 1.0-5.0 (For i686 architecture) APM Package Name: VRTSLSIapm APM Package Description: Veritas Array Policy Module for LSI multiVID APM Package Version: 5.0-1.0 (Only for PPC architecture) and 5.0-4.0 (For x86_64 architecture) Supported versions of Veritas Volume Manager: 5.0 MP3, 5.0MP4 and later, 5.0RU1, 5.0RU3, 5.0RU4 Supported Arrays: SUN 6130, SUN6140, SUN6180, SUN6540, SUN2540, SUN2530, SUN2510, STK6580, STK6780, Flexline 200/300 series Supported Modes: A/P-F Change Log: ----------- This ASL/APM Package contains Updated RPM package for SLES10 SP3(x86_64) Note: ----- a. This ASL/APM requires Array to be configured in Active-Passive Explicit Failover (A/P-F) Mode. Installation Instructions: -------------------------- 1.Before adding any ASL package, ensure Veritas Volume Manager is installed and enabled: # vxdctl mode mode: enabled 2. After downloading VRTSLSI-MultiVID-5.0_aslapm_Linux.tar.gz, verify the checksum of the file # cksum VRTSLSI-MultiVID-5.0_aslapm_Linux.tar.gz 1907546889 4907362 VRTSLSI-MultiVID-5.0_aslapm_Linux.tar.gz 3. Uncompress the file and extract the packages: # gunzip VRTSLSI-MultiVID-5.0_aslapm_Linux.tar.gz # tar -xvf VRTSLSI-MultiVID-5.0_aslapm_Linux.tar Note: Verify that there are sixteen RPM packages as part of the tar ball. There is one ASL package per Linux distribution, one APM package for x86_64 architecture per distribution and one APM for "ppc" architecture for RHEL5, SUSE10 and SUSE11 Following are the ASL packages: ------------------------------- VRTSLSI-ALL-5.0-1.0_SLES11.x86_64.rpm VRTSLSI-ALL-5.0-1.0_SUSE11.ppc64.rpm VRTSLSI-ALL-1.0-5.0_RHEL4.i686.rpm VRTSLSI-ALL-5.0-1.0_RHEL5.ppc64.rpm VRTSLSI-ALL-1.0-5.0_RHEL5.i686.rpm VRTSLSI-ALL-1.0-5.0_SLES10.i586.rpm VRTSLSI-ALL-5.0-1.0_SUSE10.ppc64.rpm VRTSLSI-ALL-1.0-5.0_SLES9.i586.rpm Following are the APM packages: ------------------------------- VRTSLSIapm-5.0-1.0_SUSE11.ppc64.rpm VRTSLSIapm-5.0-4.0_SLES11.x86_64.rpm VRTSLSIapm-5.0-4.0_RHEL4.x86_64.rpm VRTSLSIapm-5.0-1.0_RHEL5.ppc64.rpm VRTSLSIapm-5.0-4.0_RHEL5.x86_64.rpm VRTSLSIapm-5.0-4.0_SLES10.x86_64.rpm VRTSLSIapm-5.0-1.0_SUSE10.ppc64.rpm VRTSLSIapm-5.0-4.0_SLES9.x86_64.rpm 4. Select the appropriate ASL and APM packages depending on the target machine distribution (RHEL or SLES) and architecture Following are example installation instructions for RHEL5 x86_64 distribution: ASL installation: # rpm -ivh VRTSLSI-ALL-1.0-5.0_RHEL5.i686.rpm APM Installation: # rpm -ivh VRTSLSIapm-5.0-4.0_RHEL5.x86_64.rpm 5. After the packages are installed, you must execute the vxdctl enable command to claim the disk array as an IBM DSxxxx array and then 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 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. 6. After executing vxdctl enable and vxconfigd -k, verify the output of the vxddladm listsupport command # vxddladm listsupport ATTR_NAME ATTR_VALUE ======================================================= LIBNAME VID IBM, SUN, STK SGI, LSI, ENGENIO PID All ARRAY_TYPE A/P-C, 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-, STK6580_6780- SUN6180-, STK-ARRAY, D280 D220, D240, D178 FLEXLINE, Sun 6540, LSI- TP9300-, TP9400-, TP9500- TP9700-, IS500-, IS4600- ENGENIO- 7.
