1. Overview

This hotfix resolves the following problem:

  * Disks in IBM DS8000 arrays are disappeared after installing SFW 5.1 SP1 with DMP DSM. 

  Details: VIBMAADS DMP DSM tries to claim the array as ALUA array if VIBMAADS is detecting 
  ALUA information from the disk.  If VIBMAADS fails to claim ALUA due to DMP DSM claim routines,
  MS MPIO will not create the disk because there is no DSM claiming the disk.
  
  

2. Resolution   


   * If one of the routine to claim ALUA array is failing, DMP DSM should go back and claim the IBM
   DS8000 disks the same way that IBM DS800 has been supported in the previous release of DMP DSM.

8. If this is a clustered configuration (SFW-HA or MSCS), please perform steps 1-7 
on all additional nodes in the cluster.


To install the hotfix using the Command Line
---------------------------------------------
1. At the command prompt, run one of the following commands to extract the hotfix 
files to the default location:

C:\temp><Hotfix_BuildVersion_IncidentNumber_OS_Platform>.exe /x
C:\temp><Hotfix_BuildVersion_IncidentNumber_OS_Platform>.exe /extract

Example:
