vxddladm show DMP state as not active
I have issue that I can't seem to solve and I'm dire need of assistance.
I have veritas cluster 5.1 running on solaris 10 connected to an 6180 storage array. The array is directly connected to 2 hotsts. (no switch!).
Controller port 1A is connected to host A
controller port 1B is connected to host A
controller port 2A is connected to host B
controller port 2B is connected to host B.
DMP is taking care of the multipathing bit and looks ok, however I see that the state is set to not active:
Output fromt the vxddladm listsupport libname=libvxlsiall.so :
LIB_NAME ASL_VERSION Min. VXVM version
Libvxlsiall.so vm-5.1.100-rev-1 5.1
The output of the vxdmpadm list dmpEngenio :
APM name: dmpEngenio
APM version: 1
Feature : VxVM
VxVM version 51
Array Types Supporred: A/PF-LSI
Depending Array Types A/P
State : Not-Ative
Output from vxdctl mode:
mode : enabled.
Both hosts show the same result state : Not-Active
So my question is : How do I set the state to Active. Bare in mind that this is a full production system so I have make sure that any commands given will not disrupt production. I will schedule downtime in that case.
Can someone assist me?
