Symantec Enabled Arrays - Array Support Library (ASL) and Array Policy Module for Network Appliance Block Filer Storage Arrays (Active/Active, Active/Passive, Active/Passive- Concurrent) on Veritas Volume Manager (TM) 5.0 for RHEL4(x86_64).
This TechFile provides information about the Array Support Library (ASL) and Array Policy Module (APM) for Network Appliance Block Filer Storage Arrays (Active/Active, Active/Passive, Active/Passive-Concurrent) on Veritas Volume Manager (TM) 5.0 for RHEL4(x86_64).
For general information about ASLs, see TechNote 249446 (link in the Related Documents section of this TechFile)
ASL Package Name: VRTSNTAPasl
ASL Package Version: 1.0
APM Package Name: VRTSNTAPapm
APM Package Version: 1.0
Supported versions of Veritas Volume Manager: 5.0
Supported Arrays: Network Appliance Block Filers (A/A , A/P, or A/P-C), and IBM System Storage N3000, N5000 and N7000 Series.
If the Volume Manager version is 5.0MP3 and later, please ignore this note. If not, this ASL and APM requires the hotfix 5.0MP1RP1a_linux_vm_hotfix or 5.0MP1RP1b_linux_vm_hotfix (which replaces 5.0MP1RP1b_linux_vm_hotfix and the link to this is available in related documents section). Install this hotfix before installing the ASL and APM.
1.Create a directory to store package:
# mkdir tmp
# cd tmp
2.At the bottom of this TechFile, click on Download Now to download the ASL and APM packages
After downloading VRTSNTAPasl_apm_5.0-1.0_RHEL4.x86_64_293229.tar.Z, uncompress the file:
# gunzip < VRTSNTAPasl_apm_5.0-1.0_RHEL4.x86_64_293229.tar.Z |tar xvf -
Before adding any ASL package, ensure Veritas Volume Manager is installed and enabled:
# vxdctl mode
Install the asl by executing the following command.
# rpm -ihv VRTSNTAPasl-5.0-1.0_RHEL4.i686.rpm
Install the apm by executing the following command.
# rpm -ihv VRTSNTAPapm-5.0-1.0_RHEL4.x86_64.rpm
After the packages are installed, you must execute the vxdctl enable command to claim the disk array as an NetApp array and then load the new APM:
# vxdctl enable
Note: In some cases, it has been reported that the installation of the ASL and/or APM does not take effect and vxdctl enable does not claim the enclosure and devices. In such cases, you can execute the vxconfigd -k command in addition to vxdctl enable.
After executing vxdctl enable, verify the output of the vxddladm listsupport command:
# vxddladm listsupport libname=libvxnetapp.so
