This is a new install of our product and then the following error gave out while executing the vxdisk scandisks.

Moreover, No disk information at output of the vxdisk list command.

libvxCLARiiON.sl:claim_device() : SKIPPED >>>
The vxcheckasl command appreard SKIPS against the EMC CLARiiON device and SCSI inquiry for a correspondent DGC device did not show a serial number.
And, we could see that the vxconfigd debug log showed we found the LUNs and due to ASL not claiming, then disconnect the array. So, No device discovered in VxVM layer.
After checking with this customer direclty, we found out that the Initiator type of the array set to HP No Auto Trespass.
Suggested Initiator type in the array set to CLARiiON Open then, rescaneed all device, eventually VxVM discovered all devices well.
Need to check whether the following 4 conditions are meet to use with the supported our product:
- Minimum firmware: FLARE 28 (CX4)
- Initiator type: CLARiiON Open
- Failover Mode: 4
- DMP Failover mode: ALUA
