ATTEN: HPUX 11.11, 11.23 upgrading EMC PowerPath to 5.1

For the folks who have these versions of HPUX and run EMC's PowerPath...please note:

If you upgrade to version 5.1 you may experience that your cdrom drive will no eject.
You can mount & umount fine, but when you attempt to eject - it will not work.

EMC is working on hotfix/patches, but until they get them done, here's a couple fixes that they shared with me:

1. Reboot your server (not an ideal fix)
2. Run: powermt config then eject cd

The second worked on all our boxes we had upgraded when we hit this problem.

Hope this helps fellow EMC storage users like myself.

Kindest regards,
Rita
