================================================================================ This README provides information about the Array Support Library (ASL) for HP StorageWorks MSA2300 Series Arrays, MSA 2012sa and HP P2000 Series Arrays on Veritas Volume Manager (tm) 5.0 and 5.0MPx for Linux (RHEL and SLES) ================================================================================ Package Name : VRTSHPMSA Package Description : Array Support Library for HP MSA Series and HP P2000 Series Arrays Package Version : 1.5 Supported versions of Veritas Volume Manager : 5.0 and 5.0MPx Supported Arrays : HP MSA Series Arrays (MSA2312fc, MSA2324fc, MSA2012sa, MSA2312sa, MSA2324sa, MSA2312i, MSA2324i) and HP P2000 Series Arrays (P2000 G3 FC, P2000G3 FC/iSCSI, P2000 G3 SAS, P2000 G3 iSCSI) Supported Modes : A/A-A-HP (Pre 5.0MP3) and ALUA (5.0MP3 and later) ================================================================================ NOTE: Before installing this ASL package, please remove any external ASL packages that are installed on this system for HP MSA2312/2324/2012sa or HP MSA2312/2324fc series. Please refer to the following example to remove VRTSmsa2kfc and VRTSHP-MSA2000sa packages # rpm -qa | egrep "VRTSmsa2kfc|VRTSHP-MSA2000sa|VRTSHPMSA" | awk '{ print $2 }' Then use "rpm -e" to remove the above packages. ================================================================================ Installation Instructions: -------------------------- 1. Create a directory to download the ASL package # mkdir HPMSA_ASL # cd HPMSA_ASL 2. After downloading, verify the checksum of the file: # cksum VRTSHPMSA-5.0-1.5_Linux.tar.gz 2225056775 31493 VRTSHPMSA-5.0-1.5_Linux.tar.gz 3. Uncompress the file and extract the rpm packages: # gunzip VRTSHPMSA-5.0-1.5_Linux.tar.gz # tar -xvf VRTSHPMSA-5.0-1.5_Linux.tar There are a total of five ASL packages present in VRTSHPMSA-5.0-1.5_Linux.tar.gz, as follows: ------------------------------------------- VRTSHPMSA-5.0-1.5_RHEL4.i686.rpm VRTSHPMSA-5.0-1.5_RHEL5.i686.rpm VRTSHPMSA-5.0-1.5_SLES9.i586.rpm VRTSHPMSA-5.0-1.5_SLES10.i586.rpm VRTSHPMSA-5.0-1.5_SLES11.x86_64.rpm The same ASL package is intended to work on different architectures (ia32/ia64/x86_64) on RHEL4/5 & SLES9/10/11 4. Before adding any ASL package, ensure Veritas Volume Manager is installed and enabled # vxdctl mode mode: enabled 5. Select the appropriate ASL package depending on the target machine distribution (RHEL or SLES) and OS version. Following is an example installation instruction for RHEL5 distribution: # rpm -ivh VRTSHPMSA-5.0-1.5_RHEL5.i686.rpm 6. After the package is installed, 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 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" 7. After running "vxdctl enable", verify the output of the "vxddladm listsupport" command. On VxVM 5.0MP3 and later releases the ARRAY_TYPE supported is ALUA and on previous releases it is A/A-A-HP Output for 5.0MP3 and later: ---------------------------- # vxddladm listsupport ATTR_NAME ATTR_VALUE =================================================== LIBNAME libvxmsa2kfc_sa.so VID HP PID MSA2312fc, MSA2324fc, MSA2012sa MSA2312sa, MSA2324sa, MSA2312i MSA2324i, P2000 G3 FC, P2000G3 FC/iSCSI P2000 G3 SAS, P2000 G3 iSCSI ARRAY_TYPE ALUA ARRAY_NAME MSA2312fc, MSA2324fc, MSA2012sa MSA2312sa, MSA2324sa, MSA2312i MSA2324i, P2000G3_FC, P2000G3_FCiSCSI P2000G3_SAS, P2000G3_iSCSI 8. Verify the ASL library version # vxddladm listversion libname=libvxmsa2kfc_sa.so libvxmsa2kfc_sa.so has version string: vm-5.0-rev-1.5.
