Installation Instructions:
1. Create a directory to store ASL package:
# mkdir /tmp/asl
# cd /tmp/asl

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

3. After downloading VRTSibmxiv-5.0-HP_UX_11.31-v3.tar_338442.gz in /tmp/asl/ directory, Verify the checksum.
# cksum VRTSibmxiv-5.0-HP_UX_11.31-v3.tar_338442.gz

4. Uncompress and untar the package
# gunzip VRTSibmxiv-5.0-HP_UX_11.31-v3.tar_338442.gz
# tar -xf VRTSibmxiv-5.0-HP_UX_11.31-v3.tar_338442

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

6. Install the ASL
# swinstall -s 'pwd' VRTSibmxiv

7. After the packages are installed, execute the vxdctl enable command to claim the disk array:
# 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.
 

8. After executing vxdctl enable, verify the output of the "vxddladm listsupport" and vxddladm listversion commands
# vxddladm listsupport libname=libvxxiv.sl
