How to Configure Sybase ASE Database Access With VERITAS Volume Manager

If you use VxVM software, perform the following steps to configure Sybase ASE database access with the VxVM software.

  1. Configure the disk devices for the VxVM software to use.

    See the Sun Cluster Software Installation Guide for Solaris OS for information on how to configure VERITAS Volume Manager.

  2. If you use raw devices to contain the databases, run the following commands on the current disk-group primary to change each device's owner, group, and mode.

    If you do not use raw devices, do not perform this step.

    1. If you create raw devices, run the following command for each raw device.

      # vxedit -g diskgroup set user=sybase group=dba mode=0600 volume
      -g resource-group

      Specifies the name of the resource group. This name can be your choice but must be unique for resource groups within the cluster.

      -h nodelist

      Specifies an optional comma-separated list of physical node names or IDs that identify potential masters. The order here determines the order in which the nodes are considered as primary during failover.

    2. Verify that the changes are effective.

      # ls -lL /dev/vx/rdsk/diskgroup/volume
    3. Reregister the disk device group with the cluster to keep the VxVM namespace consistent throughout the cluster.

      # scconf -c -D name=diskgroup
