This TechFile provides information on the Array Support Library (ASL) and Array Policy Module(APM) for IBM DS3xx, DS4xxx Series Arrays in Active-Passive Explicit Failover (A/P-F) mode on Veritas Volume Manager (tm) 5.0 MP3 and later for Solaris Opteron (x64) For general information about ASLs, see TechNote 249446 (see Related Documents section of this TechFile for the link) ASL Package Name: VRTSLSIasl ASL Package Description: LSI MultiVID Array Support Library ASL Package Version: 1.0,REV=07.24.2009.12.29 APM Package Name: VRTSLSIapm APM Package Description: LSI MultiVID Array Policy Module APM Package Version: 1.0,REV=10.15.2009.03.26 Supported versions of Veritas Volume Manager: 5.0 MP3 and later Supported Arrays: Please refer to HCL for list of supported arrays Supported Mode: Active-Passive Explicit Failover (A/P-F) mode Note: This ASL/APM requires Array to be configured in Active-Passive Explicit Failover Mode. Please refer to TechNote #283282 for Array configuration for DMP Installation Instructions: 1. Create a directory to download the ASL/APM package # mkdir /tmp/asl_apm/ # cd /tmp/asl_apm/ 2. At the bottom of this TechFile, click on Download Now to download the package in /tmp/asl_apm/ 3. After downloading VRTSLSIaslapm_Solaris_i386_vm-5.0-rev-5.tar_338589.gz, verify the checksum # cksum VRTSLSIaslapm_Solaris_i386_vm-5.0-rev-5.tar_338589.gz 3166106131 25418 VRTSLSIaslapm_Solaris_i386_vm-5.0-rev-5.tar_338589.gz 4. Uncompress the file and extract the packages # gunzip VRTSLSIaslapm_Solaris_i386_vm-5.0-rev-5.tar_338589.gz # tar -xvf VRTSLSIaslapm_Solaris_i386_vm-5.0-rev-5.tar_338589 5. Before adding any ASL/APM package, ensure Veritas Volume Manager is installed and enabled # vxdctl mode mode: enabled 6. ASL installation: # pkgadd -d . VRTSLSIasl 7. APM Installation: # pkgadd -d . VRTSLSIapm 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 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. 9. After executing vxdctl enable and vxconfigd -k, verify the output of the vxddladm listsupport command # vxddladm listsupport libname=libvxlsiall.so ATTR_NAME ATTR_VALUE ========================================= LIBNAME libvxlsiall.so 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- 10.
