ioscan -fnCdisk shows no disks

Hi

 

I have just patched an 11.31 test server to March 2012 Bundles.

 

I have just rebooted, and upon carrying out some checks, I find ioscan -fnCdisk shows nothing.

 

Full ioscan below:

Re: ioscan -fnCdisk shows no disks

Try adding N - upper-case N to the syntax and see if it shows any agile device files.

Hi Dave

 

Here it is:

Why is this the case?  How come it didn't show anything when doing ioscan -f 'lower case n' Cdisk?

Because you don't have any legacy DSF?  My system has both types.

Re: ioscan -fnCdisk shows no disks

Looks like someone ran "rmsf -L" to disable legacy DSFs on this system - you can confirm this by running "insf -Lv", and you could re-enable legacy DSFs by running "insf -L". See man pages for rmsf and insf for more details.

This did the trick.  I don't think anyone would've run the rmsf -L command, as I am the only person using this server at present.  Could it be the Mar 12 bundle patching could have done something?
