Thread: Resequence of device names and assoc dmp

  1. Resequence of device names and assoc dmp


    Does anyone know how to force a resequencing of the device names and associated
    dmp names. During an LUN import from a Hitachi AMS500, for a single LUN
    out of several, only one side was imported, hence the device names and assoc
    dmp names were off by one. Is there a way for re-import and have them resequence
    properly?

    Once remedied and the LUN was imported properly, the problem didn't self
    correct after several reboots or after vxdctl enable.

    Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Volume Manager gets a list fo devices from the kernel device tree and
    not from /dev (in order)

    For the purpose of "persistent" naming across reboots, there is the
    /etc/vx/disk.info file.

    So, this file remembers the "old" name. Remove the file (or edit it)
