Symantec Enabled Arrays - Array Support Library for IBM XIV and XIV Nextra Arrays (Active/Active) on Veritas Volume Manager (tm) 5.0 and later for HP-UX 11.31

Solution



This TechFile provides information on the Array Support Library (ASL) for IBM XIV and XIV Nextra Arrays (Active/Active) on Veritas Volume Manager (tm) 5.0 and later for HP-UX 11.31.

For general information about ASLs, see TechNote <http://support.veritas.com/docs/249446>


ASL Package Name: VRTSibmxiv
ASL Package Version: 5.0
Supported versions of Veritas Volume Manager: 5.0 and later
Supported Arrays: IBM XIV and XIV Nextra (A/A)


Installation Instructions:
1. Create a directory to store ASL package:
# mkdir /tmp/asl
# cd /tmp/asl

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

3. After downloading VRTSibmxiv-5.0-HP_UX_11.31-v1_308285.tar.Z in /tmp/asl/ directory, Verify the checksum.
# cksum VRTSibmxiv-5.0-HP_UX_11.31-v1_308285.tar.Z
4063712290 51335 VRTSibmxiv-5.0-HP_UX_11.31-v1_308285.tar.Z

4. Uncompress and untar the package
# zcat VRTSibmxiv-5.0-HP_UX_11.31-v1_308285.tar.Z | tar xvf -

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

6. Install the ASL
# swinstall -s 'pwd' VRTSibmxiv

7. After the packages are installed, execute the vxdctl enable command to claim the disk array:
# vxdctl enable

Note: In some cases, it has been reported that the installation of the ASL and/or APM does not take effect, and vxdctl enable does not claim the enclosure and devices. In such cases, you can execute the vxconfigd -k -m enable command in addition to vxdctl enable.

8. After executing vxdctl enable, verify the output of the "vxddladm listsupport" command:
# vxddladm listsupport libname=libvxxiv.sl
