Dear All

I have some enviornments of SFHA and VCS installed on Linux and Solaris servers.

I have output of VRTSexplorer logs for every system. As the VRTSexplorer contains almost everything collected, I wanted to know if is it possible to get the following output of these requirements

1. Which license and version and sub-version is installed on system? like for example if version 5.0 is installed which patch version is installed ?

I want something except "vxlicrep"

2. If in the case of Replication, which file will give output of Bandwidth limit if it is configured.

3. If in the case of Replication, which file will give output of packet size if it is configured.

Any suggession will be appreciated. Assume I just have VRTSexplorer and investigating logs and need to know the following.

Regards

Hi Faisal,

1. Which license and version and sub-version is installed on system? like for example if version 5.0 is installed which patch version is installed ?

I want something except "vxlicrep"

>>> For licensing, "vxlicrep -e" output gives you details of license & features installed. Patch version information will not be in vxlicrep output. For patch info of veritas products, you need to refer pkginfo_l output

2. If in the case of Replication, which file will give output of Bandwidth limit if it is configured.

>>> vradmin_repstatus command should tell you bandwidth allocated .. for e.g

vradmin -g hrdg -l repstatus hr_rvg

3. If in the case of Replication, which file will give output of packet size if it is configured.

>>> vxprint -g <diskgroup> -Pl  should have the packet size, look for similar output in vvr directory of explorer.

Dear Gaurav

Thanks for your output, but your response reflect working with the system live.

I want to grep my queries from VRTSexplorer logs, currently I do not have access to live systems.

Is there any possibility to grep from VRTSexplorer logs?

Thanks

Hi Faisal,

For point 1 & 2 above, output would be available in VRTSexplorer however I doubt about point 3. For point 2 above, have a look in VVR folder & you should have the output.

In the root directory of explorer there are pkginfo files for Solaris and rpm files for Linux - I would suggest checking VRTSvxvm package for SF version and VRTSvcs for VCS version, which should be, but do not have to be, at the same version.  

For licence information look at vxlicrep_e file in the license directory

For VVR rlink info look at vxprint_Pl file in the vxvm directory:

Example:

# awk '$1 == "Name" {pkg=$3} (pkg == "VRTSvxvm" || pkg == "VRTSvcs") && $1 == "Version" {print pkg, $3}' rpm_aqi
VRTSvxvm 5.1.00.00
VRTSvcs 5.1.00.00
 
# grep "Product Name" license/vxlicrep_e 
   Product Name                        = VERITAS Cluster Server
   Product Name                        = VERITAS File System
   Product Name                        = VERITAS Storage Foundation for Cluster File System
   Product Name                        = VERITAS Volume Manager
   Product Name                        = VERITAS File System
   Product Name                        = VERITAS Database Edition for Oracle
   Product Name                        = VERITAS SANPoint Control
   Product Name                        = VERITAS Volume Manager
   Product Name                        = VERITAS File System
   Product Name                        = VERITAS Volume Manager
   Product Name                        = VERITAS Volume Manager
   Product Name                        = VERITAS Volume Manager
   Product Name                        = VERITAS Storage Foundation Enterprise HA
 
# grep "^Rlink|bandwidth_limit|packet_size" vxvm/vxprint_Pl                 
Rlink:    to_prod
info:     timeout=500 packet_size=8400 rid=0.1119
          bandwidth_limit=none checksum=on
Rlink:    rlink2
info:     timeout=500 packet_size=8400 rid=0.2382
          bandwidth_limit=none checksum=on
Rlink:    to_site2
