This TechFile provides information on the Array Support Library (ASL) and Array Policy module (APM) for IBM DS4xxx Series Arrays and IBM DS5100 in Active-Passive Concurrent (A/P-C) and Active-Passive Explicit Failover (A/P-F) mode on Veritas Volume Manager (tm) 5.0MP3 and later for Solaris Sparc. For general information about ASLs, see TechNote ASL Package Name: VRTSLSIasl ASL Package Description: LSI MultiVID Array Support Library ASL Package Version: 2.0,REV=01.18.2010.13.27 APM Package Name: VRTSLSIapm APM Package Description: LSI MultiVID Array Policy Module APM Package Version: 1.4,REV=01.07.2010.05.24 Supported versions of Veritas Volume Manager: 5.0MP3 and later Supported Arrays: Please refer HCL for list of supported arrays Supported Mode: A/P-C and A/P-F Note: 1. Please refer to TechNote 283282 (link provided in the Related Documents section below) for guidelines on array configuration supported with DMP. 2. Before installing this ASL package, please remove any external ASL packages that are installed on this system for SUN 2540, SUN 6540, STK 6540 and Flexline 200/300 series. Please refer to following example to remove VRTSSTK2540, VRTSSTKasl and VRTSLSIasl # pkginfo -l | egrep "VRTSST2540|VRTSSTKasl|VRTSLSIasl" Then use "pkgrm" to remove the above packages. 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 and APM tar package into /tmp/asl_apm # mkdir /tmp/asl_apm # cd /tmp/asl_apm 3. After downloading VRTSLSIaslapm_Sol_sparc_5.0_7.0.tar_340469.gz, verify the cksum of the file # cksum VRTSLSIaslapm_Sol_sparc_5.0_7.0.tar_340469.gz 2560659785 37846 VRTSLSIaslapm_Sol_sparc_5.0_7.0.tar_340469.gz 4. Uncompress the file and extract the packages # gunzip VRTSLSIaslapm_Sol_sparc_5.0_7.0.tar_340469.gz # tar xvf VRTSLSIaslapm_Sol_sparc_5.0_7.0.tar_340469 5. Install the ASL and APM using pkgadd command # pkgadd -d . VRTSLSIasl # pkgadd -d . VRTSLSIapm 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 PID All ARRAY_TYPE A/P-C, A/PF-LSI, A/A 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-5. VXVM version: 5.0 8. Verify that APM is in Active state if the array is configured in A/P-F mode (Refer to H/W technote: for details regarding array configuration). Note: The APM is used only when the array is configured in A/P-F mode. The APM will report as "not Active" if the array is configured in A/P-C mode ( please see below screenshot). Note: Non-Disruptive Firmware Upgrades are not supported when using the array in A/P-C mode. # vxdmpadm listapm dmpEngenio Filename: dmpEngenio APM name: dmpEngenio APM version: 1 Feature: VxVM VxVM version: 50 Array Types Supported: A/PF-LSI Depending Array Types: A/P State: Active << State when array is in A/PF mode Package Information: Note: The pkgchk command will report errors for missing files with ".2" extension. This is a known ASL and APM packaging limitation, which does not effect the functionality, and can be safely ignored.
