If your SPARC T3-1 server requires disk zoning, but does not have the required minimum system firmware level and/or the LSI firmware on the backplane does not have patch 147034-01, you must perform the following step for the controllers to function properly.
Caution - Be certain to back up any data stored on the disks before you install this patch. You can restore the files after the patch is installed.
This patch causes the backplane to be partitioned into the two eight-disk zones described in Disk Zones for SPARC T3-1 Servers With Sixteen-Disk Backplanes.
Tip - When zoning is enabled, devalias for slots 8-15 will be incorrect unless the system firmware is updated to either 8.0.5.b (or a higher 8.0 level) or to 8.1.0 (or higher). See Minimum System Firmware for Valid devalias in Upper Disk Locations for more information.
