Changing device naming for TPD-controlled enclosures

See Third-party driver coexistence

By default, TPD-controlled enclosures use pseudo device names based on the TPD-assigned node names. If you change the device naming to native, the devices are named in the same format as other DMP devices. The devices use either operating system names (OSN) or enclosure-based names (EBN), depending on which naming scheme is set.

To change device naming for TPD-controlled enclosures

  • For disk enclosures that are controlled by third-party drivers (TPD) whose coexistence is supported by an appropriate ASL, the default behavior is to assign device names that are based on the TPD-assigned node names. You can use the vxdmpadm command to switch between these names and the device names that are known to the operating system:

    # vxdmpadm setattr enclosure enclosure_name tpdmode=native|pseudo

    The argument to the tpdmode attribute selects names that are based on those used by the operating system (native), or TPD-assigned node names (pseudo).

    If tpdmode is set to native, the path with the smallest device number is displayed.
