Storage Issues

This section describes the storage issues that apply to this Oracle Solaris 11 release.

Disabling fc-fabric SMF Service Disrupts System Boot (6988653)

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: 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.

System Panics When Utilizing SCSI-2 reserve Command With iSCSI or SAS Devices (7075285)

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.
