ASL Package Description: Array Support Library for HUAWEI OceanStor Series Arrays.
ASL Package Version: 1.0
APM Package Name: VRTSHUAWEIapm
APM Package Desciption: Veritas Array Policy Module for HUAWEI OceanStor Series Arrays.
APM Package Version: 1.0
Supported versions of Veritas Volume Manager: 5.0 MP1and later
Supported Arrays: Huawei OceanStor Series Arrays (S5300, S5500, S5100, S5600, S2300, S2100, V1800, V1500, VIS6000, S2300E, S2600, S6800E) in A/P-F mode

Installation Instructions:
1. Create a directory to download Huawei OceanStor ASL and APM package
# mkdir /tmp/HUAWEI_ASLAPM
# cd /tmp/HUAWEI_ASLAPM

2. At the bottom of this TechFile, click on Download Now to download the ASL and APM package

3. After downloading VRTSHUAWEIasl_apm_5.0_hpux_1123pi_v1.0.tar_324224.gz in /tmp/HUAWEI_ASLAPM/ directory, verify the cksum
# cksum VRTSHUAWEIasl_apm_5.0_hpux_1123pi_v1.0.tar_324224.gz
1010043271 73140 VRTSHUAWEIasl_apm_5.0_hpux_1123pi_v1.0.tar_324224.gz

4. Uncompress the file and extract the packages
# gunzip VRTSHUAWEIasl_apm_5.0_hpux_1123pi_v1.0.tar_324224.gz
# tar xvf VRTSHUAWEIasl_apm_5.0_hpux_1123pi_v1.0.tar_324224
There will be two directories created, 'asl' and 'apm' containing the ASL and APM packages respectively.

5. Before adding ASL/APM package, ensure Veritas Volume Manager is installed and enabled
# vxdctl mode
mode: enabled

6. Install the ASL
# cd asl
# swinstall -s `pwd` VRTSHUAWEIasl

7. Install the APM
# cd ../apm
# swinstall -s `pwd` VRTSHUAWEIapm

8. After the packages are installed, execute vxdctl enable command to claim the disk array and to 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 -m enable command in addition to vxdctl enable.

9. After executing vxdctl enable, verify the output of the vxddladm listsupport command
# vxddladm listsupport libname=libvxhuawei.sl

10. Verify the ASL version
# vxddladm listversion libname=libvxhuawei.so
libvxhuawei.so has version string: vm-5.0-rev-1. VXVM version: 5.0

11. Also verify the output of vxdmpadm listapm command. The APM should be in Active state.
# vxdmpadm listapm dmphuawei
