Release: 5.1SP1

To resolve the problem, do the following:

  1. Check if the disk supports SCSI-3 operations. Enter:

    # symdev -sid 1383 show device_name

    For example, the following command checks whether disk 1747 supports SCSI-3 operations or not. The output shows this disk does not support SCSI-3 operations:

    #   symdev -sid 1383 show 1747
    Device Configuration: RAID-5
    Device is WORM Enabled   : No
    Device is WORM Protected : No
    SCSI-3 Persistent Reserve: Disabled
    Dynamic Spare Invoked : No

  2. Configure disks to support SCSI-3 operation. Enter:

    #   symconfigure –cmd “set device device_name attribute=SCSI3_persist_reserv;” preview –nop
    #   symconfigure –cmd “set device device_name attribute=SCSI3_persist_reserv;” commit –nop

    For example, the following commands configure disk 1747 to support SCSI-3 operations.

    #   symconfigure –cmd “set device 1747 attribute=SCSI3_persist_reserv;” preview –nop
    #   symconfigure –cmd “set device 1747 attribute=SCSI3_persist_reserv;” commit –nop
