Configuring Solaris 10 x86 for multiple drive paths

To use multiple paths to the same tape drive, NetBackup requires that Solaris Multiplexed I/O (MPxIO) be disabled. MPxIO is enabled by default on Solaris 10 x86 systems.

Use the following procedure to disable MPxIO.

To disable MPxIO

  1. Use a text editor to open the following file:

    /kernel/drv/fp.conf

  2. Change the mpxio-disable value from no to yes. After the change, the line in the file should appear as follows:

    mpxio-disable="yes"

  3. Save the changes and exit from the text editor.
