Unable to detect LUNS in solaris 9.

Hi all,

We added HBA card to one of the Solaris 9 server (Sun Fire V240). Configured zoning and presented the LUNs to the server from EVA6100. But LUNs are not visible in OS side. Verified the link, zone config and the Storage config. All looks fine.

Applied all required packages and patches from server level.
Storage Details:
Storage Model: EVA 6100

Server Details:
OS Version: Sun Solaris 9
HBA Model: SG-XPCI2FC-EM4-Z - Sun StorageTek PCI-X Enterprise 4Gb Dual Channel FC Emulex Host Bus Adapter, includes standard and low profile brackets. RoHS 6 compliant

luns are visible in OK prompt but not in OS.

if there are additional parameters i need to know

Regards,

    Hi.

    So You can look LUN at OK level, so zonning and connection is OK.

    You should check that FC hba detected by OS.

    Can you show results for some commands:

    For check that FC-controllers detected:
    grep "/fp" /etc/path_to_inst

    For check status connections:
    luxadm -e port

    For check detected devices:
    cfgadm -al
    cfgadm -al -o show_FCP_dev

    Hi.


    Hmm you read my previos post ?

    Wheree is output for
    cgadm -al
    cfgadm -al -o show_FCP_dev

    ?

    From output of "cfgadm -al" get FC controllers number and try configure it.


    cfgadm -c configure <controller>

    Hmm... Strange.

    What we can see:

    1. Luns available for host ( From POST tests)
    2. Some FC drivers installed. ( FC card detected in /etc/path_to_inst)
    3. At Solaris level - FC communicatation also look like OK ( port status - Connected, We can see dump_map )

    But:
    At Solaris 9 when you use switched fabric you must cfgadm -c configure .... for required FC-device.
    cfgadm don't show any fc controllers

    Do you install SFK ( SAN Foundation Kit) and patch it ?

    What exacly mean "*Applied all required packages and patches from server level.*" ?

    Regards.

    hi

    we are still unable to detect luns in OS.

    We have installed the recommended packages/patches from Oracle mentioned below, but still the LUN is not visible. Kindly check and let us know if any other parameters to be configured in Solaris side.
