Cause



Possible causes in EMC  environment:

  • C bit  not set
  • SPC-2 bit is not set consistently for all device ports

Additional causes are that DMP  is being suppressed for some or all devices:

# cat etc/vx/vxdmp.exclude
exclude_all 1
paths
#
controllers
#
product
#
pathgroups
#

Solution



If exclusion is the cause this can be corrected by removing exclusion statement from vxdmp.exclude and rescanning device tree:

# rm /etc/vx/vxdmp.exclude
# rm /etc/vx/array.info
# rm /etc/vx/disk.info

# vxdctl enable
