Solution



This TechFile provides information about the Array Support Library (ASL) for Hitachi AMS/WMS arrays on Veritas Volume Manager 4.x for Solaris.
For general information about ASLs, see TechNote 249446 (link in the Related Documents section of this TechFile)
Package Name: VRTSHTC-AMSWMS (Array Support Library for Hitachi AMS_WMS)
Package Version: 1.0, REV=07.08.2005.11.58
Supported Arrays: Hitachi AMS/WMS Series (A/P-G)
Supported versions of Veritas Volume Manager: 4.0, 4.0 MP1, 4.1

At the bottom of this TechFile, click on Download Now to download the ASL package VRTSHTC-AMSWMS_solvm40_278145.tar.Z
After downloading the package, extract the file:
# zcat VRTSHTC-AMSWMS_solvm40_278145.tar.Z | tar xvf -
Before adding any ASL package, ensure Veritas Volume Manager 4.0 or later is installed and enabled:
# vxdctl mode
mode: enabled
To install the package:
# pkgadd -d . VRTSHTC-AMSWMS
After the package is installed, you must execute the vxdctl enable command to claim the disk array as a Hitachi array:
# vxdctl enable
Note: In some cases, it has been reported that the installation of the ASL does not take effect and the enclosure or devices is not claimed by vxdctl enable. In such cases, execute the vxconfigd -k command in addition to vxdctl enable.
After executing vxdctl enable, verify that libhtcamswms.so is the output of the vxddladm listsupport command:
# vxddladm listsupport libname=libhtcamswms.so
To ensure that the AMS/WMS arrays work correctly with Volume Manager, verify both the simple and detailed settings for each array port (controller)
Simple Settings:
1. Platform: Solaris
2. Alternate Path: Veritas Volume Manager
3. Failover: Veritas Cluster Server
Detailed Settings:
1. Standard (Default): Enabled
2. Unique Reserve Mode 1: Enabled
3. ASL Report Mode (Active/Active): Enabled
Note: For additional details regarding array settings, contact Hitachi Technical Support
