Solaris Volume Manager command overview

Another quick reference guide. This time for Solaris Volume Manager. Please do not expect the whole command line in this one page. It should be a reminder for the most used commands for Solaris Volume Manager. I added a picture to this blog but also the pdf file is available for download.

SAS/SATA HBA 375-3487 for Sun Storage J4200/J4400

The Sun Storage Arrays J4x00 was released some days ago.

At the time the SAS/SATA HBA for J4200 and J4400 is necessary:
Option: SG-XPCIE8SAS-E-Z
Part number: 375-3487
Codename: Pandora
- Details in System Handbook
- Sun StorageTek PCI Express SAS 8-Channel Internal HBA Installation Guide

IMPORTANT: Revision -02 of Pandora HBA is a requirement.
This means 375-3487-02 for J4200/J4400 and the 375-3487-01 can only be used with ST2530.
See also Sun Storage J4200/J4400 Array Release Notes

How to identify the Revision?
1.) Hardware: Look to the part number label on the HBA itself.
2.) Solaris: Do
# prtpicl -v > /tmp/prtpicl.out
# vi /tmp/prtpicl.out
Search for
subsystem-id with 0x3150
verify
device-id is 0x58 and
vendor-id is 0x1000
revision-id of 0x2 == 375-3487-01
revision-id of 0x8 == 375-3487-02



Sample output of 375-3487-01 in X4600 with Solaris 10 5/08 x86:

I'm still mostly blogging around Solaris Cluster and support. Independently if for Sun Microsystems or Oracle. :-)
