  1. Can't import diskgroup after deport


    We are configuring a new server where EMC CX500 shared disks were assigned.
    Since we are using EMC poweroath so DMP is not working. So, multipath also
    not suppressed. Now once we create a disk group and after that if we deport
    the same we can't import the same back.

    Error messages are as following.
    root@skyhawk1: vxdg list

    We are running HP-UX 11.11 with VxVM 3.5 Update 3.

    We have already downloaded and installed VRTScx600_v2_266678 patch but still
    it is detecting all the disks as OTHER_DISKS.

    Any idea how we can solve this problem.



  2. Re: Can't import diskgroup after deport

    OK, they are called ASL (Array Support Libraries). Download the one for
    your Array. (see the support site and search for ASL and CX500)

    NOw, next question is why not import the DG with the name ?

    #vxdg import cmydg

    if that fails

    #vxdg -C import cmydg


    if that fails

    #vxdg -Cf import cmydg
