Solaris 10 connectvity with cx-380 using mpxio

first time configuring  solaris for mpiox . need some help/verification

2 hba , 4 path , configure a test LUN , i can see 4 device path using format command.

what next

- modify fp.conf and change

mpxio-disable="no";

- i know something needs to modify to scsi_vhci.conf file also . probably something "device-type-scsi-options-list ="

any other changes , any help appreciated.

Re: Solaris 10 connectvity with cx-380 using mpxio

just an update , rebooted the system after changing the mpxio-disable="no"  and  the system came up with 2 paths now (4 before)

      4. c3t5006016139A01781d0 <drive type unknown>
          /pci@7c0/pci@0/pci@9/SUNW,qlc@0/fp@0,0/ssd@w5006016139a01781,0
       5. c3t5006016839A01781d0 <drive type unknown>
          /pci@7c0/pci@0/pci@9/SUNW,qlc@0/fp@0,0/ssd@w5006016839a01781,0

looks like something is in place , however the drive type is unknow and that needs to be fixed in scsi_vhci.conf file .

Re: Solaris 10 connectvity with cx-380 using mpxio

problem got solved by running the stmsboot -u command . i can see a master device path and format command shows it as clarrion drive . so all looks good

Re: Solaris 10 connectvity with cx-380 using mpxio

thanks . its was helpful but it didn't have much on on setting up mpxio .  i was managed to do it myself with small configuration changes on fp.conf file , stmsboot command . however still have to look around for few things

- recommended policy - is round-robin ok ?

- seeing some warnings in syslog file - offline or reservation conflict during my testing

Hello DSeth,

   The Host Connectivity Guide page 155 gives the EMC recommendations for Configuring MPxIO for Clariion Devices.

Hope this helps,
