Re: rescan for new LUNs from EVA with Solaris

The normal procedure is to run cfgadm -al and devfsadm -c disk. Do you have any output on /var/adm/messages?

¿Is there a LUN already presented from this storage to this host?

Update sd.conf vi /kernel/drv/sd.conf

Add new LUN IDs created on Hitachi. (This step is not required after Solaris 9).

Instruct Solaris to re-read sd.conf

update_drv -f sd 9 and 10 can do this. 8 will failed.

Scan SCSI BUS, so Solaris can see the new luns

#devfsadm

Find new LUNs
#cfgadm -al -o show_SCSI_LUN (The added LUNS will be seen here as "unconfigured" when available)

If LUNs do not appear, server reboot will be needed.
#reboot -r ############################
