This TechFile provides information about the Array Support Library (ASL) for FUJITSU ETERNUS4000/8000 Series arrays on Veritas Volume Manager 5.0 and later for AIX.

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

Package Name: Array Support Library for FUJITSU ETERNUS4000/8000 on AIX
Package Version: 5.0-rev-1
Supported versions of  Veritas Volume Manager (tm): 5.0 and later
Supported Arrays: FUJITSU ETERNUS4000 (Active/Active)
                             FUJITSU ETERNUS8000 (Active/Active)

At the bottom of this TechFile, click on Download Now to download the ASL package VRTSFJTSYe8k_v1.0_aix_50_287659.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

Note: If you have installed the previous version of the ASL for the ETERNUS4000/8000 (for example, FJTSYe8k), you should uninstall the package before installing the current version.

To install the package:

# cd /tmp
# zcat VRTSFJTSYe8k_v1.0_aix_50_287659.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
