Can you show me your output for "./sdconfcheck check" (AIX preferred)

peterkain42

I've installed SnapDrive for UNIX 4.2 on an AIX 5.3 TL 12 system and have run into some problems.

Both myself and the VAR confirmed our software on the Matrix but when I run the ".sdconfcheck check" the last line bothers me but I have nothing to compare it with. If someone can post their output it would help. Any feed back is appreciated. 

bash-2.05b# ./sdconfcheck check

No, I do not have UNIX, but example of sdcheck output can be found in SD documentation.

May be you have some old version setting on your hard drive somewhere? Does sdconfcheck has some logs where it looks for things? As a last resort, UNIX often has utilities to trace process execution (which files are opened and commands started). It is usually called truss on “classical” UNIX and strace on Linux. Does AIX have something similar?

You seem to have old host utilities version. According to IMT SDU 4.2 for AIX requires at least HU 4.2.

Nice, thank you.

Given that we have installed Host Utilities 5.1 this is odd.

Any suggestions?

If you have a UNIX system could you post your output, I'd like to see what a supported configuration displays?

Thanks, I found the example in the documentation, on page 53 of the Snapdrive 4.2 for UNIX Installation and Administration Guide for IBM AIX.

For the moment we're going to turn the problem back to the VAR and NetAPP.  I've got a level 2 case open but NetAPP support seems rather less than interested in fixing the problem. You've been more helpful then support.  If they come up w/ a reason/solution as to why the command

sanlun check  ... displays the incorrect version of  "FCP Support Kit 4.1" this should be 5.1

I'll make sure to post it.
