This TechFile provides information about Array Support Library and Array Policy Module for IBM SAN Volume Controller (A/A-A) on Veritas Volume Manager (tm) 5.0 and 5.0.1 for HPUX 11iv3 (11.31) For general information about ASLs, refer to TechNote 249446 (link in the Related Documents section of this TechFile) ASL Package Name: VRTSibmsvc ASL Package Version: 1.0 ASL Package Description: Array Support Library for IBM SANVC APM Package Name: VRTSibmsvcapm APM Package Version: 1.3 APM Package Description: Veritas Array Policy Module for IBM SVC Supported Versions of Veritas Volume Manager: 5.0 and 5.0.1 Supported Arrays: IBM SAN Volume Controller 2145 (A/A-A) Installation Instructions: 1. Create a directory to download the ASL and APM package # mkdir /tmp/asl_apm # cd /tmp/asl_apm 2. At the bottom of this TechFile, click on Download Now to download the ASL/APM package 3. After downloading VRTSibmsvc5.0_HP-UX_11.31_v5.tar_329485.gz, verify the checksum of the file # cksum VRTSibmsvc5.0_HP-UX_11.31_v5.tar_329485.gz 2285718175 70016 VRTSibmsvc5.0_HP-UX_11.31_v5.tar_329485.gz 4. Uncompress the file and extract the ASL and APM packages. # gunzip VRTSibmsvc5.0_HP-UX_11.31_v5.tar_329485.gz # tar -xvf VRTSibmsvc5.0_HP-UX_11.31_v5.tar_329485 5. Before adding the ASL package, ensure Veritas Volume Manager is installed and enabled # vxdctl mode mode: enabled 6. Install the ASL package. # cd /tmp/asl_apm/asl # swinstall -s `pwd` VRTSibmsvc 7. Install the APM package. # cd /tmp/asl_apm/apm # swinstall -s `pwd` VRTSibmsvcapm 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 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 -m enable command in addition to vxdctl enable. 9. After executing the vxdctl enable, verify the output of the vxddladm listsupport, vxddladm listversion and vxdmpadm listapm commands. # vxddladm listsupport ATTR_NAME ATTR_VALUE ======================================================================= LIBNAME VID IBM PID 2145, 2062 ARRAY_TYPE A/A-A-IBMSVC ARRAY_NAME SAN_VC # vxddladm listversion has version string: vm-5.0-rev-1.
