A1000: drivutil vs. raidutil - Sun Solaris

I have a system with 10 LUNs on a RAID A1000 module. I have made all the necessary changes in sd.conf, rmparams, etc. drivutil -l c2t5d0 shows me all the 10 luns but raidutil -c c2t5d0 -i shows me only the standard 8 luns. Why is this? Thanks...

    Default A1000: drivutil vs. raidutil

    I have a system with 10 LUNs on a RAID A1000 module. I have made all the

    drivutil -l c2t5d0 shows me all the 10 luns but

    raidutil -c c2t5d0 -i
    shows me only the standard 8 luns.

    Why is this?

    Well, something wrong in the configs above for example
    With no output, it's hard to guess...

    what luns are missing from one command? The higher ones? 9/10?
    That would indicate that you max lun isnt changed.
    what does format show you? Do you see all luns there or just the eight?
    have you tried a boot -r
    Do you see the luns from probe-scsi-all at the obp level?

    with no real info, its just a guessing game.

    What type of system is this A1000 connected to? What version of
    Solaris? If it's PCI did you make the correct changes to the glm.conf
    file? I know you said you made all the necessary changes but the
    glm.conf can be confussing since it is/was doented wrong in a
    couple of places...

    For Solaris 2.6 it should be:
    device-type-scsi-options-list =
    "Symbios StorEDGE A1000", "lsi-scsi-options",
    "Symbios StorEDGE A3000", "lsi-scsi-options",
    "SYMBIOS RSM Array 2000", "lsi-scsi-options";
    lsi-scsi-options = 0x107f8;

    For 2.7 and about it should be:
    device-type-scsi-options-list =
    "Symbios StorEDGE A1000", "lsi-scsi-options",
    "Symbios StorEDGE A3000", "lsi-scsi-options",
    "SYMBIOS RSM Array 2000", "lsi-scsi-options";
    lsi-scsi-options = 0x407f8;

    Notice the slight difference on the lsi-scsi-option line...

    Not sure what you mean here. I did change it in rmparams and all 10 LUNs
    are working fine, they have data on them
     

    format does show me all the 10 luns

    yes
     

    Hm. This has always puzzled me. I was never able to see anything from
    probe-scsi-all. I see the X6541 card (pci4,0/scsi1,0/...), but nothing
    connected to it. But 'healthck', lad, and all the RM commands work fine.

    So, everything is fine, its just that 'raidutil' doesnt show me more than
    the standard 8 LUNs.

    Almost seems like a limitation/bug in the raidutil command?

    Thanks

    Hmm, I have ALWAYS seen them listed under the OBP, so something is strange
    Thats the basic check as I see it while im setting things up.
     

    Yes, I saw that now that the info was supplied.
     

    Dont know of any, what does RM6 show yout 10 or 8? to everythiung it looks
    like you hit the 8 limit, but since its only one command i'm a bit lost.
    I have to look deeper to solve it, it looked like you had upgraded to the
    lastest and greates patches of rm6, glm and scsi... right?
     

    Ah well, at least it works as it seems, but it would be nice to have it
    all work, dont have a >8 lun A1000 available at the moment, so I cant even
    check the files.

    I am working on the next release of the GPL tool System Configuration
    Collector (scc). For more details of the tool look at
    www.open-challenge.nl/scc/index.html This tools collects configuration data
    in snapshots. Consecutive snapshots are compared and differences are added
    to a logbook. It is also possible to compare (parts of) the snapshots of 2
    systems.

    Because of this concept, it is important to know what configuration data is
    "fixed" and what data is "variable". I do not have access to systems
    equipped with A1000 hardware. Can someone provide me with the output of the
    commands indicated below? I will extend scc to incorporate the configuration
    of this kind of hardware.

    The 'rm6' gui shows me all 10 luns.
     

    Yes, latest version of RM, latest kernel jumbo patch for Solaris 8, which
    includes all the glm/sd/isp patches

    Great, go for it :-)
     

    All of the commands and their output is more or less stated in the docs
    which you can download from sun (pdf's) for free to my knowledge.
    The same goes for most of the hardware/software.

    A1000, and its relatives, (RSM2000 = A3000) and A3500 use basically the
    same engine.

    The system resides in /usr/lib/osa (open storage array) with links from
    /etc/raid

    The commands are under bin there and configs and logs are stored there in
    default.

    Download the RM6 package, which I'm sure can be gotten from somewhere and
    check it out, you dont need an array to install and check it, just to get
    some results :-)

    Results may vary with versions, but basically output from most are quite
    static and should only change with changes in the system.
    The log might change often, depending on if they have the automatic
    paritycheck running or not.

    If you want to check what commands are done download explorer from sun, it
    collects every aspect of data from the A and other stuff, it's mostly
    scripted commands so you should be able to see them there.

    Well, then I'm a bit lost... I havent got any larget then 8 lun A1000 to
    check with right now, but I might in a while.
