Solution



This TechFile provides information about the Array Support Library (ASL) for Fujitsu ETERNUS3000 and ETERNUS4000 Model 80/100 arrays on Solaris.

For general information about ASLs, see TechNote 249446 (link in the Related Documents section of this TechFile)

This package supersedes package version 1.0 and 1.0.1. Support for Veritas Database Edition/Advanced Cluster (tm) 3.5 Maintenance Pack 2 (MP2)  9i RAC was added with package 1.0.2.

Package name: Array Support Library for FUJITSU E3000/E400A
Package version: 1.0.2, Revision: 08.10.2006.06.04
Supported versions of Veritas Volume Manager (tm): 3.2 to 4.1
Supported version of Veritas SANPoint Foundation Suite-High Availability, and Database Edition/Advanced Cluster 9i RAC: 3.5 MP2 and later
Supported arrays: Fujitsu ETERNUS3000 (Active/Passive-Group (A/P-G))
                            Fujitsu ETERNUS4000 Model 80/100 (Active/Passive-Group (A/P-G))

Note: The ETERNUS3000 and ETERNUS4000 Model 80/100 array must be configured to exhibit A/P-G characteristics and must support SCSI-III PGR. A firmware upgrade may be required for SCSI-III PGR support. For additional details on array configuration, contact Fujitsu Technical Support.


At the bottom of this TechFile, click on Download Now to download the ASL package VRTSFJTSYe3k4ka_v1.0.2_SunOSSparc_3.2_284717.tar.Z. Before adding any ASL package, ensure Veritas Volume Manager is installed and enabled:

# vxdctl mode
mode: enabled

Note: If installing on Solaris 9, then set LD_LIBRARY_PATH to /usr/lib. See TechNote 251706 for complete information (link in the Related Documents section of this TechFile)

After downloading VRTSFJTSYe3k4ka_v1.0.2_SunOSSparc_3.2_284717.tar.Z, uncompress and extract the package:

# zcat VRTSFJTSYe3k4ka_v1.0.2_SunOSSparc_3.2_284717.tar.Z | tar xvf -

Note: If you have installed the previous version of the ASL for the ETERNUS3000 (for example, FJSVasl), you must stop all I/O to volumes or file systems and uninstall the package before installing the current version ASL.

To install the package:

# pkgadd -d . VRTSFJTSYe3k4ka

After the package is installed, you must run the vxdctl enable command to claim the disk array as a FUJITSU array:

# vxdctl enable

After running vxdctl enable, you should see libvxFJTSYe3k4ka.so in the output of vxddladm listsupport:

# vxddladm listsupport | grep libvxFJTSYe3k4ka.so
libvxFJTSYe3k4ka.so              A/PG         FUJITSU      E3000
libvxFJTSYe3k4ka.so              A/PG         FUJITSU      E400A
