Hello to everybody this is the case!
I made two luns on a NetApp 3020 and want to map it to a solaris 8 host, anyone knows the procedure for viewing on the server with solaris 8. Both belong to the same igroup and where host initiator is .
You can install NetApp host Untility Kit (HUK, downloadable from NOW site) for solaris.
On Solaris 10, you can use cfgadm to scan/discover new LUNs, please refer to man pages.
Once the LUN is being detected by OS, sanlun commands (from HUK)from the host utilities can be used to query/display NetApp LUN information.
Eg #sanlun lun show -p
The command cfgadm works on Solaris 8 as well, only the format is little different. Can you try the following:
cfgadm -al -o show_FCP_dev
Host Utilities Kit ( also called Host Utilities) for Solaris will work on Solaris 8 just as good as on Solaris 10. I didn't see any Solaris version in the setup requirements section. So I assume it should work with all versions.
download it from here:
Well for Solaris 8, adding storage can be a hit and miss affair. I would try (please check parameters for the commands before running them):
2. Update sd.conf and run update_drv
4. Reconfiguration reboot
I used to insist on downtime and doing reconfiguration reboot because that was the only sure thing.
