Installation Instructions:
 
1. Create a directory to store the 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 VRTSFJTSYe8k_5.0_3.0_SunOS.tar_338240.gz, verify checksum of the file as follows:
 
# cksum VRTSFJTSYe8k_5.0_3.0_SunOS.tar_338240.gz
 
1004058739 7831 VRTSFJTSYe8k_5.0_3.0_SunOS.tar_338240.gz
 

 
4. Uncompress the file and extract the package:
 
# gunzip VRTSFJTSYe8k_5.0_3.0_SunOS.tar_338240.gz
 
# tar xvf VRTSFJTSYe8k_5.0_3.0_SunOS.tar_338240
 

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

 
6. ASL Installation:
 
# pkgadd -d . VRTSFJTSYe8k
 

 
7. After the package is installed, run the vxdctl enable command to claim the disk array as a Fujitsu 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
 

 
8. After running vxdctl enable, run the vxddladm listsupport and vxddladm listversion command and verify the output:
 
# vxddladm listsupport libname=libvxFJTSYe8k.so
