EVA+Secure path on solaris 8+sun cluster3.1

servers: 2 SUN FIRE280
OS: SunOS 5.8
HBA: QLOGIC2310F
Sun cluster:3.1
Storage: HP EVA3000 2 lun configured and presented to both servers
Securepath 3.0CSP1
Problem: secure path installed successfully. 2 devices created by Securepath: c5t0d2,c5t0d3. testing on these 2 disks have been performed by creating/mounting file system. it seems ok.
but after sun cluster software installed, "scdidadm -l" reported c5t0d2 and c5t0d3 have the same DID, in other words, sc will treat these 2 disks as 1 disk.

Re: EVA+Secure path on solaris 8+sun cluster3.1

Are you sure this configuration is supported? I seem to recall that only Solaris 9 was supported with Sun CLuster 3.1 and EVA3000/SecurePath, and even then only with more than 3 nodes...

Re: EVA+Secure path on solaris 8+sun cluster3.1

Thank you Duncan

from the solaris 8 stream, I can find that solaris 8 is supported.
http://spock.corp.hp.com/DBDoc/Active/EVA_V3_Solaris_8_FC_stream_2005_01_14.pdf

but from the quick connect guide, just as you mentioned, only solaris 9 and 3-node cluster is supported.

I believe stream is the only official place HP engineer should count on. so i am really confused...
