Issue



 The "bind" option for VCS Mount resource is not available from drop down menu in VOM or hagui in any 5.x or 6.0GA version


Environment



 SLES or Red Hat (both linux versions that Symantec supports).


Cause



 The bind option is missing from the /opt/VRTSvcs/bin/Mount/Mount.xml file:

<FSType type="str" dimension="Scalar" editable="True"
important="True" mustconfigure="True" unique="False" persistent="True"
range="" default="" displayname="FSType">
<attr_description>Type of file system.</attr_description>
<possiblevalues>
<value>vxfs</value>
<value>ext2</value>
<value>ext3</value>
<value>ext4</value>
<value>nfs</value>
<value>nfs4</value>
<value>reiserfs</value>
<value>xfs</value>
</possiblevalues>
</FSType>

Although the Bundled Agents guide shows Symantec supports bind as an FSType:

https://d1mj3xqaoh14j0.cloudfront.net/public/documents/sfha/5.1sp1/linux/productguides/pdf/vcs_bundled_agents_51sp1_lin.pdf

 

Type of file system.

Supports vxfs, bind, ext2, ext3, nfs, or reiserfs.

 


Solution



 The fix has been put into 6.0SP1, where the bind FSType has been added to the Mount.xml file.

If an upgrade is not possible, as a workaround this value could be added into the file /opt/VRTSvcs/bin/Mount/Mount.xml  manually, an example is provided below.

          <value>reiserfs</value>
          <value>xfs</value>
          <value>bind</value>  <-- Added Value
            </possiblevalues>
