At the bottom of this TechFile, click on Download Now to download the ASL package
After downloading VRTSHP-EVALE_SunOSsparc_vm5.0_asl_v1.0_300657.tar.Z, uncompress the file:
# mkdir /tmp/EVALE_ASL

Before adding ASL package, ensure VERITAS Volume Manager is installed and enabled:
# vxdctl mode

ASL Installation
Install the ASL by executing the pkgadd command:
# pkgadd -d . VRTSHP-EVALE
After the ASL is installed, you must execute the vxdctl enable command to claim the disk array as an HP EVA LE array.
# vxdctl enable
Note: In some cases, it has been reported that the installation of the ASL does not take effect, and vxdctl enable does not claim the enclosure and devices. In such cases, you can execute the vxconfigd -k command in addition to vxdctl enable.
After executing vxdctl enable, verify the output of the vxddladm listsupport command:
# vxddladm listsupport libname=libvxhpevale.so
