Re: CX4 and Solaris11

As far as I know, the Host Agent particularly for Solaris11 is not available yet. However, .pkg for Solaris10 has worked on Solaris11. Either you may try installing Host Agent for Solaris 10 or you may register the initiators manually.

Re: CX4 and Solaris11

Apologies for delayed response!

You might want to read: Unisphere Host Software/CLI and Utilities for VNX OE for Block Release Notes Version 1.2.1.1.0017

From a quick reading/glance I was able to understand Unisphere Agent Version: 1.2.0.1 might work with FLARE30 on CX4.

Table on Page 6 lists all the software requirement.

Moreover, while researching I did find KB Article emc254967 (

Where do I find information about Navisphere/Unisphere Host Agent?  ) informative which can be bookmarked for future references.

I do not see Solaris 11 SPARC listed anywhere but Would you be able to give it a try for Solaris 11 x86 also, re-install Unisphere Host Agent on SPARC (uninstall - reboot the host - install) let us know if it works out?

Re: CX4 and Solaris11

EMC Unisphere Host Agent is supported with Oracle Solaris 11. I have tested it in virtual environment.

Paths to download Unisphere/Navisphere Host Agent from Powerlink


For Unisphere host agent:

Home > Support > Software Downloads and Licensing > Downloads T-Z > Unisphere Server Software

For Navisphere host agent:

Installing Unisphere/Navisphere Host Agent for Solaris:

Installation of Unisphere Host Agent and Navisphere Host Agent on Solaris 11 is same.

Following is the procedure to install Unisphere Host Agent on Solaris 11. It is implemented on Oracle Solaris 11.1 X86 - Virtual Machine.

Virtual Machine Operating System details: Oracle Solaris 11.1 X86

Steps to install:

1) Make sure that each storage system is connected to Solaris server where you are installing Unisphere Host Agent.

2) If your server is behind a firewall, open TCP/IP port 6389. (This port is used by the host agent. If this port is not opened, the host agent will not function properly.)

3) At the Solaris server, log in as superuser (root).

4) If any previous revision of Host Agent is installed on the server, remove it before continuing; otherwise continue to the next step.

Note: In this scenario, Unisphere Host Agent package HostAgent-Solaris-32-x64-en_US-1.0.55.1.0044-1.pkg is placed under /software directory on Solaris 11 virtual machine.

5) In a shell, enter the following commands:

=============================================================

root@solaris:~# cd /software  (To change the current working directory to /software as I have placed the host agent package under this directory).

root@solaris:/software# ls -ltr (To list the contents of /software directory).

total 45093

-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 22982656 Dec 1 08:41 HostAgent-Solaris-32-x64-en_US-1.0.55.1.0044-1.pkg

(Below command is the main command which will install Host Agent on the Solaris 11 host)

root@solaris:/software# pkgadd -d ./HostAgent-Solaris-32-x64-en_US-1.0.55.1.0044-1.pkg

The following packages are available:

root@solaris:/software# pkginfo -l HOSTAGENT

7) Below are the commands to start/stop the Unisphere Host Agent on Solaris 11.

To stop Unisphere Host Agent Service

root@solaris:/software# /etc/init.d/agent stop

Shutting down Unisphere Agent

root@solaris:/software#

To start Unisphere Host Agent Service

root@solaris:/software# /etc/init.d/agent start

Starting Unisphere Agent

root@solaris:/software#

***************************************************************************************************************************

Note: Please make sure that there is correct entry of your Server's hostname and IP address in hosts file. Also add CLARiiON SP's IP address entries in hosts file.

Example:

Suppose your server's hostname is Solaris11 and IP address is 192.168.10.15.

IP addresses of SP-A and SP-B are 192.168.10.17 and 192.168.10.18 respectively.

Hostnames of SP-A and SP-B are CLARiiON_SP-A and CLARiiON_SP-B respectively.

Then the hosts file entry should look like:

--------------------------------------------------

192.168.10.15   Solaris11

192.168.10.17   CLARiiON_SP-A

192.168.10.18   CLARiiON_SP-B

--------------------------------------------------
