Loading The Library

7. After the package is installed, you must run the vxdctl enable command to claim the disk array as an Fujitsu array
# vxdctl enable

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

8. After running vxdctl enable, run the vxddladm listsupport and vxddladm listversion command and verify the output as follows:
# vxddladm listsupport libname=libvxfjtsye8k.so
