AIX 5.3 Snapdrive 4.2 not working

We recently purchased and setup a FAS3240 running 8.0.1P5 and I'm having trouble with Snapdrive on our AIX host.

After installing Snapdrive 4.2 I can run some commands, but can't create a snapshot.

The LUNs mounted on the host via FC were created on the filer not w/ Snapdrive but the snapdrive command doesn't associate them with the hosts.

We can lists the LUNs (see below). Notice we see the LUNs with the "sanlun" command.

We made just a couple changes to the snapdrive.conf file:

  autosupport-enabled=on  # Enable autosupport flag

  default-transport="FCP"  # Transport type to use for storage provisioning, when a decision is needed

  multipathing-type="NativeMPIO"  # Multipathing software to use when more than one multipathing solution is available. Possible values are 'DMP', 'NativeMPIO' or 'none'

We use AIX LVM and JFS2 which are defaults.

Re: AIX 5.3 Snapdrive 4.2 not working

Are WWPW of local adapters correctly found? What is result of

sanlun fcp show adapter -v

sanlun fcp show adapter -c

And on filer

igroup show -v <the name of your AIX igroup

Our VAR and then we checked that our hardware/software is supported in the Support Matrix. But when I run the sdconfcheck the last line doesn't look right (i'm going to post this as separate question just so more people may see it).

Re: AIX 5.3 Snapdrive 4.2 not working

For some reasons it finds old version of host utilities. It could be the cause of your problem.
