|Oracle Solaris 11 Release Notes Oracle Solaris 11 Information Library|
This section describes the storage issues that apply to this Oracle Solaris 11 release.
When the svc:/system/device/fc-fabric:default service is disabled, the system might not reboot properly. Many dependent services, including the single-user and multiuser milestones, might fail to run. The following error message is displayed:
root@unknown:~# svcs -x svc:/system/device/fc-fabric:default (Solaris FC fabric device configuration.) State: disabled since Wed Sep 07 01:26:25 2011 Reason: Disabled by an administrator. See: http://sun.com/msg/SMF-8000-05 See: man -M /usr/share/man -s 1M cfgadm_fp Impact: 34 dependent services are not running.
Workaround: Do not disable the fc-fabric service. If the fc-fabric service is already disabled, enable the service in single-user mode.
Some events on a Storage Area Network (SAN) might trigger a panic on hosts with iSCSI or SAS devices if they are reserved with the SCSI-2 reserve command. Only devices managed by the HBA drivers iscsi(7D), mpt(7D), or mpt_sas(7D), and used with I/O multipathing are affected. An example of such a SAN event is path offline.
The prtconf command with -vD option might be used to identify devices and drivers in the system.
Note - Systems using SVM disk sets and configured without auto-take on top of the HBA drivers internally utilize SCSI-2 reservations and are therefore affected.
Workaround: Do not use SCSI-2 reservations or SVM disk sets without auto-take with the affected configurations.
