Problem

Panics encountered when deporting diskgroups on systems running Storage Foundation 6.2.1 or InfoScale 7.4 on rhel6 (2.6.32-754.6.3 kernel)

Error Message

 

Cause

The panic is due to a known Redhat issue  (1624747 bugzilla).

Solution

Veritas has spoken to Redhat about the panics and Redhat has a private fix and this private fix has been confirmed to fix the panics. This fix will be included in the next Redhat kernel version.

If planning to use the rhel6 (2.6.32-754.6.3 ) kernel with SF 6.2.1 and/or the InfoScale 7.x releases, then it would be recommended that Redhat's private fix is installed. Alternatively once the next Redhat kernel is available, then it can be used.
