VxVM 3.2 does not multipath internal FCAL disks on E3500/V880 by default
Check out Sun Bugid 4626381
But the workaround that is provided is just
for an initial install before you have used vxinstall. If the machine is
running veritas already and you want to connect the second path you will
have to connect the second path online when the machine is running.
steps are below.
You should be all set after this. This is just a one time job that you
need to do. You do not have to do this across reboots.
- Make sure /reconfigure doesn't exist
- Disconnect internal fibre cable from the new HBA
- boot system
- connect the fibre cable to the new HBA and the disks
- devfsadm -Cv
- vxdctl initdmp
- vxdctl enable
