Cannot use cio mount option

I am trying to use the CIO option.

I get a error message that I do not have a license for it.

I loaded 0909 DCOE which includes OnlineJFS
and it did not work and
I loaded 1002 DCOE which includes OnlineJFS
to try to get this function

Points will be applied and any guidance is appreciated. The CIO option should be included with ONlineJFS 5.0 according to the manual. IT is mentioned in the man page on the system.

Re: Cannot use cio mount option

Hello Emil,

To the best of my knowledge, HP brought CIO
in VxFS 5.0.1. Standard OnlineJFS 5.0.1
license is sufficient to enable CIO.

Cheers,

Re: Cannot use cio mount option

Emil,

As VK2COT indicated, the cio mount options are in OnlineJFS 5.0.1. The 0909 DCOE ships with v5.0.0, so won't have it.

The other DCOE you mentioned... did you mean 1003 (March 2010) - there isn't to my knowledge a 1002 (and actually I wasn't even sure that 1003 was publicly available yet!)

Anyway, if you are licensed and supported to use DCOE, and have the Support Agreement IDs linked to your ITRC profile, you should be able to download OnlineJFS 5.0.1 from SUM (Software Update Manager).

Re: Cannot use cio mount option

Per the release notes of OnlineJFS 5.0
"Concurrent I/O is not included in Base-VxFS or OnlineJFS. Additional licenses are required."

These additional licenses are basically of SG-CFS which is part of SG-SMS bundle. Symantec integrated/licensed CIO feature in SF-CFS 5.0 which HP adopted in SG-CFS/SG-SMS bundle.

You may find the reference of CIO in the page with a mention of additional license requirement. This license is not of OnlineJFS but as mentioned above of SG-CFS/SG-SMS bundle.

Per release notes of OnlineJFS 5.0.1

"The concurrent I/O database acceleration feature was previously available with the SG-SMS license. Starting with the VxFS 5.0.1 release, this feature is also available with the HP OnlineJFS license and will continue to be available with the SG-SMS license."

Re: Cannot use cio mount option

Hi:

There is an additional DVD that shipped with the 0909 11.31. release if OnlineJFS was licensed. In my case this came with the VSOE set as an Extension Release (Management Suite) dated November 2009. A codeword is required to unlock the OnlineJFS 5.0.1 product therein.

Regards!
