At the bottom of this TechFile, click on Download Now to download the ASL package VRTSFJTSYe8k_v1.0_aix_40mp3_285827.tar.Z into the /tmp directory

Note: If you are downloading the file on a Windows based system, an automatic file extension name change occurs for the ASL package. Therefore, you must execute the download as follows:

1. When presented with the option to save the file, save it as file type "All files"

2. In the file naming box, ensure that the file name exactly matches the file name as shown in this TechFile

3. Select OK

Before adding any ASL package, ensure Veritas Volume Manager  is installed and enabled:

# vxdctl mode
mode: enabled

To install the package:

# cd /tmp
# zcat VRTSFJTSYe8k_v1.0_aix_4.0mp3_285827.tar.Z | tar xvf -
# installp -acX -d ./VRTSFJTSYe8k.bff VRTSFJTSYe8k

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 libFJTSYe8k.so in the output of the vxddladm listsupport command:

# vxddladm listsupport libname=libvxFJTSYe8k.so
