      • 15. Re: Zpool create throws Segmentaion Fault (Core dumped ) on Solaris 10 Galaxy
        Cindys-Oracle
        Basant,

        In case we're in different time zones...

        If the zpool create operation still core dumps even if creating a UFS is successful (might rule out that the device is fine), and there are no existing ZFS pools on this system, is it possible that the zpool binary is corrupt since zpool create core dumps on a file as well. If so, can you reinstall it?

        The pkgchk command will tell you if the ZFS pkgs have problems:

        # pkgchk -l SUNWzfsr
        # pkgchk -l SUNWzfsu

        Thanks, Cindy

          Hi Cindy,

          Thanks for prompt reply .

          I have tried UFS procedure and it was successful, inspite of zpool throws core dump.

          For pkgchk of ZFS , I can provide this result.


          Thanks,
          Basant

            Hi Cindy,

            Below is result of pkgchk command, please have a look and suggest.
            As I could not find any curruption in zpool binay.

                Hi Basant,

                Your pkgchk output is clean so we're stumped. Do you have another Galaxy system running Solaris 10 that you could retry the zpool create operation? If it succeeds then we know that there is something on the other system that is causing this failure.

                The revert to EFI sounds so familiar. You could try disabling the device-in-use checking as a last ditch workaround and I'm aware that this is a production server. This is relatively safe if you are sure that the disk that you are using with zpool create is not in use and that no one else on the system would be changing devices without your knowledge.

                Thanks, Cindy

                  Hi Cindy,

                  I have another solaris 10 server. On which zpool creation has no problem.
                  But since it is running and active mode currently. So we could not try anything on this.

                  And for the device-in-use check, can we revert back this ?

                  means if do noinuse_check=1; and export noinuse_check; then after can we revert this ?

                  And will it not do any impact on internal disks ??


                  Thanks,

                    One thought comes to me: it sure would be nice to know what properties are being processed when it SEGVs. There's probably something dtrace could help with there.

                    There are few other things you can do:

                    1. Run the zpool create under truss:
                    truss -f -a -e -vall -l -d -o /some/output/file/name zpool create ...
                    Run that on the SEGV-generating machine, and run it on another machine where zpool create works. Then try to see what's different in the output. Also look for any open() calls that open files/devices for reading. Perhaps some sort of data store for ZFS properties has been corrupted or deleted?

                    2. What's the output of "crle" and "crle -64"? The list of shared objects you posted from the "pldd core" command is a lot longer than the list of shared objects I get from running "ldd /usr/sbin/zpool" on a Solaris 10 system.

                    3. What's the output from "ulimit -a"?

                    And since it appears that the zpool command uses libumem, see the man page for "umem_debug". Maybe setting something like "UMEM_DEBUG=default,verbose" might provide additional information.

                      Good to know that this problem is isolated to a single system.

                      I wonder what is different about these two systems... Do you know?

                      Yes, you can revert the in-use checking after you try the zpool create operation.
                      It will not harm your internal disks unless someone tries to change them.

                      Thanks, Cindy

                        Hi Cindy,

                        These is no any differences in both system. both are galaxy, solaris 10 and ldd zpool is same also.
                        If you want to ask any other difference then tell me command I will let you know the result .


                        Yes, you can revert the in-use checking after you try the zpool create operation.

                        ->> How can I revert ?? Tell me command please ?

                            from format output, we have 8 disks in total.

                            -------------------------

                            In the c4t0d0 disk, we have "/" and "/export/home/" directory etc.

                            So if I use NOINUSE_CHECK=1; then it will be applicable for all the directories right ?

                            or can we apply this check for separate disk as well ?

                            If it will be applicable for all the disks, in that case there would not be any issue with c4t0d0 disk right ?

                              This setting applies only to the 8 devices on the system, not the file systems or directories. This feature determines that if someone attempts to use or change a device that is already in use, they will receive an error. If this setting is disabled, then you won't get that device error. See the steps below to disable and enable this feature.

                              I think we have ruled out everything except that this system has some difference that causes zpool create to core dump and we don't know what it is. I'm not even sure that disabling device in-use checking will resolve it. Probably not since it also core dumps when used with a file.

                              You could consider filing a MOS support request to investigate this problem or figure out what is different between your system where this operation fails and the system where this operation succeeds (when you have the same hardware and same release).

                              Thanks, Cindy

                              I had to log out and back in as root after I re-enabled this setting.

                              My disk c1t2d0 is in use a root pool disk:
