STK2540 cannot mapped LUN to specific port HBA

Hello,

Two of our M5000 is running solaris 10 with two hba port. each of M5000 has two domain; domain 0 (using internal disk) and domain 1 (using external disk accross STK2540).

When i tried to configure and create LUN then mapped it to each host (domain 1), nothing LUN come up. i have probe-scsi-all at OK prompt.

otherway, i unmapped the LUNs and re-mapped using "Default Domain", i found the LUNs. but because of our system requirement need 1 LUN for each domain, it isn't right solution.

I think it like license issue of the storage.

Then I tried to check "administration menu" on CAM, i found "Default Domain" with "licence quantity" is 2.

Please advice me

    Could you further explain your configuration? It sounds like you have 4 domains total. 2 on each M5000. Is this correct?

    On the M5000s you mention you have 2 HBA's each. Iis each HBA both connected one domain on the M5000 and then to a single port on the STK 2540 shared between both domains on the M5000s?

    Is there a FC Switch in the configuration?

    Below is a potential configuration.
    M5000a
    domain a1________
    domain a2_|.........|
    ..............|.........|
    ................STK2540
    ..............|.........|
    domain b1_|.........|
    domain b2________|
    M5000b

    Is the above correct?

    4 port HBAs on each server, 2 HBAs port each domain.
    I tried to map the LUN to two port HBAs on domain1, but nothing LUN come up. then i tried to other port on domain 0, its same.

    But when i mappped using "default domain", the LUNs come up
