Sun StorEdge 3510 configuration problem

    Hi:

    I have a Sun StorEdge 3510 on a Sun Fire 440. It was working fine. I
    want to make another Sun Fire 440 to mount on the storage when the
    first one fails. I made changes to the storage and the configuration is
    now:

    I also modified /kernel/drv/scsi_vhci.conf as follows:

    #

    # entry similar to following in this file. Just replace the "SUN

    # 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;
    #
    "SUN StorEdge 3510", "symmetric-option";
    symmetric-option = 0x1000000;

    After reboot the system, I could not mount the mirror disk back. Now I
    have manged to make the first Sun Fire 440 mount the disk on
    /dev/dsk/c5t40d0s6 (do not remember how). However still cannot mount
    the mirror from the second one.

    I noticed the difference

    In the second Sun Fire 440,

    Hi:

    No one answer. The disk entry (dev/rdsk/c7t600C0FF000....) may not be
    funny to people as I saw some people also has this. What causes this?
    This is an issue to me as the mount command cannot mount this device
    with such a long name. Any help?

    Regards
    Yoong

  3. Nothing funny about cxtWWN. You can't mount /dev/rdsk anything, try
    /dev/dsk and see how that goes. Mount doesn't typically care how long
    your devicename is.

    Hi:

    Also cannot mount whether is /dev/rdsk/c7.... or /dev/dsk/c7.....
    I think STMS make it so after changing mpxio-disable="no" in the file
    /kernel/drv/scsi_vhci.conf.

  5. Hello, I am sorry but you must find someone who can help you, on site,
    as you seem to lack very basic understanding of the mount command.
    Yes STMS made it so. Yes it can be mounted.
    Your other problem i regads to a failover machine realle asks for
    a storage expert to help you on site.

    Regards
