Does Powerpath coexists or work with Veritas DMP

Jump to solution

Hi Team,

We have LINUX Host (SLES [x86_64] 11 SP3). Having below software.

Veritas File System: VRTSvxfs-6.1.1.000-SLES11

Veritas Volume Manager: VxVM 6.1.1

Veritas Volume Manager DMP module: vxdmp is loaded

Veritas Cluster Server: Cluster Server (VCS) 6.1.1

Now, we are planning to migrate these hosts from 3PAR to Unity using PPME.

can Powerpath coexist with Veritas Volume Manager?

Thank you

Lakshman Rao

Lakshman,

Check out the document at https://support.emc.com/docu87288_PowerPath-Family-for-Linux-6.3-and-Minor-Releases-Release-Notes.pd... - "Support summary" beginning on page 13.

Veritas DMP and PowerPath cannot manage the same devices. This document, https://support.emc.com/docu87287_PowerPath-for-Linux-6.3-and-Minor-Releases-Installation-and-Admini... explains how to exclude EMC arrays from DMP path management.
