============================================================================ This README provides information about Array Support Library and Array Policy Module for IBM SAN Volume Controller Arrays (Active/Active-Asymmetric) using DMP with Veritas Volume Manager 5.0 and later on Linux ============================================================================ ASL Package Name: VRTSibmsvc ASL Package Description: Veritas Array Support Library for IBM SANVC Array APM Package Name: VRTSibmsvcapm APM Package Description: Veritas Array Policy Module for IBM SANVC Array Supported versions of VERITAS Volume Manager(tm): 5.0, 5.0 MP1, 5.0 MP3, 5.0RU1 and 5.0RU4 Supported Arrays: IBM SAN Volume Controller (2145, 2062) Supported Mode: A/A-A (Active/Active-Asymmetric) ============================================================================ Installation Instructions: -------------------------- 1. Create a directory to store ASL/APM packages # mkdir /tmp/asl_apm # cd /tmp/asl_apm 2. Download the VRTSIBMSANVCaslapm_vm-5.0_Linux.tar.gz and verify checksum of the file # cksum VRTSIBMSANVCaslapm_vm-5.0_Linux.tar.gz 1774882524 4678491 VRTSIBMSANVCaslapm_vm-5.0_Linux.tar.gz 3. Unzip the file and extract the rpm packages # gunzip VRTSIBMSANVCaslapm_vm-5.0_Linux.tar.gz # tar xvf VRTSIBMSANVCaslapm_vm-5.0_Linux.tar Note: There is one ASL package for each distribution There is one APM package for every architecture of each distribution RHEL4/VRTSIBMsvc-5.0-2.0_RHEL4.i686.rpm RHEL4/VRTSibmsvcapm-5.0-1.1_RHEL4.i686.rpm RHEL4/VRTSibmsvcapm-5.0-1.1_RHEL4.ia64.rpm RHEL4/VRTSibmsvcapm-5.0-1.1_RHEL4.x86_64.rpm RHEL5/VRTSIBMsvc-5.0-2.0_RHEL5.i686.rpm RHEL5/VRTSibmsvcapm-5.0-1.2_RHEL5.i686.rpm RHEL5/VRTSibmsvcapm-5.0-1.2_RHEL5.ia64.rpm RHEL5/VRTSibmsvcapm-5.0-1.2_RHEL5.x86_64.rpm RHEL5/VRTSsvcapm-5.0-1.0_RHEL5.ppc64.rpm RHEL5/VRTSibmsvc-5.0-1.0_RHEL5.ppc64.rpm SLES9/VRTSIBMsvc-5.0-2.0_SLES9.i586.rpm SLES9/VRTSibmsvcapm-5.0-1.1_SLES9.i586.rpm SLES9/VRTSibmsvcapm-5.0-1.1_SLES9.ia64.rpm SLES9/VRTSibmsvcapm-5.0-1.2_SLES9.x86_64.rpm SLES10/VRTSIBMsvc-5.0-2.0_SLES10.i586.rpm SLES10/VRTSibmsvcapm-5.0-1.2_SLES10.i586.rpm SLES10/VRTSibmsvcapm-5.0-1.2_SLES10.ia64.rpm SLES10/VRTSibmsvcapm-5.0-1.2_SLES10.x86_64.rpm SLES10/VRTSsvcapm-5.0-1.0_SUSE10.ppc64.rpm SLES10/VRTSibmsvc-5.0-1.0_SUSE10.ppc64.rpm SLES11/VRTSIBMsvc-5.0-2.0_SLES11.x86_64.rpm SLES11/VRTSibmsvcapm-5.0-1.0_SLES11.x86_64.rpm SLES11/VRTSsvcapm-5.0-1.0_SUSE11.ppc64.rpm SLES11/VRTSibmsvc-5.0-1.0_SUSE11.ppc64.rpm Following are installation instructions on RHEL4 system (similar instructions can be used on other platforms) 4. Before adding any ASL package, ensure Veritas Volume Manager is installed and enabled # vxdctl mode mode: enabled 5. ASL Installation # rpm -ivh VRTSIBMsvc-5.0-2.0_RHEL4.i686.rpm 6. APM Installation # rpm -ivh VRTSibmsvcapm-5.0-1.1_RHEL4.x86_64.rpm 7. After the package is 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 and/or APM 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" 8. Verify the output of the "vxddladm listsupport" command # vxddladm listsupport ATTR_NAME ATTR_VALUE ======================================================= LIBNAME VID IBM PID 2145, 2062 ARRAY_TYPE A/A-A-IBMSVC ARRAY_NAME SAN_VC 9. Verify the ASL library version # vxddladm listversion has version string: vm-5.0-rev-2. VXVM version: 5.0 10. Verify that APM is in Active state # vxdmpadm listapm dmpsvc.ko Filename: dmpsvc.ko APM name: dmpsvc APM version: 1 Feature: VxVM VxVM version: 50 Array Types Supported: A/A-A-IBMSVC Depending Array Types: A/A-A State: Active
