How to Handle Storage Reconfiguration During an Update

Any changes to the storage topology, including running Oracle Solaris Cluster commands, should be completed before you update the Oracle Solaris software. If, however, changes were made to the storage topology during the update, perform the following procedure. This procedure ensures that the new storage configuration is correct and that existing storage that was not reconfigured is not mistakenly altered.

Before You Begin

Ensure that the storage topology is correct. Check whether the devices that were flagged as possibly being replaced map to devices that actually were replaced. If the devices were not replaced, check for and correct possible accidental configuration changes, such as incorrect cabling.

  1. On a node that is attached to the unverified device, assume the root role.
  2. Manually update the unverified device for the node list.
    phys-schost# cldevice repair -n node[,…] device

    See the cldevice(8CL) man page for more information.

  3. Update the DID driver for the node list.
    phys-schost# cldevice refresh -n node[,…]
  4. Repeat Step 2 through Step 3 on all other nodes that are attached to the unverified device.
