How to Configure Sybase ASE Database Access With Solstice DiskSuite/Solaris Volume Manager

If you use the Solstice DiskSuite/Solaris Volume Manager, perform the following steps to configure Sybase ASE database access with the Solstice DiskSuite/Solaris Volume Manager.

  1. Configure the disk devices for the Solstice DiskSuite/Solaris Volume Manager software to use.

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

  2. If you use raw devices to contain the databases, run the following commands to change each raw-mirrored metadevice'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 commands for each device on each node that can master the Sybase ASE resource group.

      # chown sybase /dev/md/metaset/rdsk/dn
      # chgrp dba /dev/md/metaset/rdsk/dn
      # chmod 600 /dev/md/metaset/rdsk/dn

      Specifies the name of the diskset.


      Specifies the name of the raw disk device within the metaset diskset.

    2. Verify that the changes are effective.

      # ls -lL /dev/md/metaset/rdsk/dn
