Solution



THIS FILE HAS BEEN UPDATED, please refer to the following article for the most recent version:  http://www.symantec.com/business/support/index?page=content&id=TECH77808
 
This TechFile provides information on the Array Support Library (ASL) and Array Policy Module (APM) for the Network Appliance Block Filer Storage Arrays  (Active/Active, Active/Passive, Active/Passive- Concurrent) on Veritas Volume Manager (tm) 5.0 and later for Solaris Sparc.
 
For general information about ASLs, see TechNote 249446 <http://support.veritas.com/docs/249446>
 

 
ASL Package name:  VRTSNTAPasl
 
ASL Package version:  5.0,REV=11.19.2007.14.03
 
APM Package name: VRTSNTAPapm
 
APM Package version: 5.0,REV=09.12.2007.16.16
 
Supported versions of Veritas Volume Manager: 5.0 and later
 
Supported Arrays: Network Appliance Block Filers (A/A , A/P, or A/P-C), and IBM System Storage N3000, N5000 and N7000 Series.
 
Notes:
 
1. This array must be appropriately configured for dynamic multipathing (DMP) to be claimed correctly by the ASL. See the array vendor's documentation for more information
 
Installation Instructions:
 
1. Create a directory to store ASL package:
 
# mkdir /tmp/asl
 
2. At the bottom of this TechFile, click on Download Now to download the package
 
3. Download the file VRTSNTAPasl_apm_v5.0-0.0_SunOS_5.0_292417.tar.Z  into /tmp/asl directory
 
4. Before adding any ASL package, ensure Veritas Volume Manager is installed and enabled:
 
# vxdctl mode
 
mode: enabled
 
5. To install the package:
 
# cd /tmp/asl
 
# gunzip < VRTSNTAPasl_apm_v5.0-0.0_SunOS_5.0_292417.tar.Z | tar xvf -
 
# pkgadd -d . VRTSNTAPasl
 
# pkgadd -d . VRTSNTAPapm
 

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

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

 
# vxddladm listsupport libname=libvxnetapp.so
