To explicitly enable multipathing on this HBA port, but disable on the rest of the HBA ports, add the following: MODIFICAR /kernel/drv/scsi_vhci.conf # For enabling MPxIO support for 3rd party symmetric device need an # entry similar to following in this file. Just replace the "SUN SENA" # part with the Vendor ID/Product ID for the device, exactly as reported by # Inquiry cmd. # # device-type-scsi-options-list = # "SUN SENA", "symmetric-option"; # # symmetric-option = 0x1000000; device-type-scsi-options-list = "HP OPEN-V*4", "symmetric-option"; <== iostat -En Add the vendor ID and product ID entries. symmetric-option = 0x1000000; MODIFICAR /kernel/drv/fp.conf # You can also enable or disable MPxIO on a per port basis. # Per port settings override the global setting for the specified ports. # To disable MPxIO on port 0 whose parent is /pci@8,600000/SUNW,qlc@4 set: # name="fp" parent="/pci@8,600000/SUNW,qlc@4" port=0 mpxio-disable="yes"; # name="fp" parent="/pci@300/pci@1/pci@0/pci@4/SUNW,emlxs@0" port=0 mpxio-disable="no"; <== luxadm -e port To enable multipathing on a HBA port, add name="fp" parent="/pci@300/pci@1/pci@0/pci@5/SUNW,emlxs@0" port=0 mpxio-disable="no"; <== luxadm -e port To enable multipathing on a HBA port, add # NOTE: If you just want to enable or disable MPxIO on all fp ports, it is # better to use stmsboot(1M) as it also updates /etc/vfstab. # mpxio-disable="yes"; <== set yes To disable multipathing globally, change to: # reboot -- -r The vendor ID and product ID are the vendor and product indentification strings that the device returns in SCSI INQUIRY data. The vendor ID must be eight characters long. You must specify all eight characters (even if the trailing characters are spaces). The product ID can be up to 16 characters long.
Removing "Drive Not Available" from Solaris
These are steps I followed to remove the LUNS which were unmasked from the system.
Removing the Unused/Unmasked LUNS from Solaris.
1. First Step is identifying the
2. Remove them from Volume Manager. In my case, they are veritas. so I used vxdisk rm
3. look at the cfgadm -al o/p to find the disks which are failing. they are failing because they are unmasked from this system and still OS sees them.
c3::50060482d53135b8,84 disk connected configured failing
c3::50060482d53135b8,86 disk connected configured failing
c3::50060482d53135b8,87 disk connected configured failing
3. luxadm -e offline /dev/rdsk/
4. cfgadm -o unusable_FCP_dev -c unconfigure c3::50060482d53135b8
# This will remove all unusable LUNS from system for particular controller and target id. don't worry there might be some working devices on that target. This command won't affect them. they'll be in working state only.
5. clean the device files using devfsadm -Cv
6. You should be clear now in both format and cfgadm -al.
