Question: How to add LUNs to a Solaris host running Sun Leadville firmware and drivers
Environment: Product: CLARiiON
Environment: Product: Symmetrix
Environment: EMC SW: PowerPath
Environment: Host adapter: Sun Leadville
Environment: OS: Solaris
Problem: Unable to see new devices from format command.
Problem: Unable to see new devices from INQ.
Problem: Unable to see new devices in PowerPath.
Problem: devfsadm -C fails to present new LUNs to Solaris OS.
Change: Trying to dynamically present new LUNs to Solaris host with Leadville drivers and firmware. These drivers allow the LUNs to be presented without any modification to the sd.conf file.
Fix: First you must find the controller numbers that the OS recognizes the HBAs with. Use the following command and look for the fc-fabric information:
cX fc-fabric connected configured unknown
cX::5006016010602145 disk connected configured unknown
cX::5006016910602145 disk connected configured unknown
cY fc-fabric connected configured unknown
cY::5006016110602145 disk connected configured unknown
cY::5006016810602145 disk connected configured unknown
Then run the following command set from the host:
If you are using PowerPath, continue with the following command set:
command and INQ should now display both the native and PowerPath pseudo
Notes: LUNs have been added to Storage Group on the CLARiiON array.
Notes: LUNs have been successfully mapped and masked on the Symmetrix storage system.
