Description

This article describes the setting required for multipath to work on a Solaris host.

This is a manual configuration step that is currently not supported in Host Power Tools.

Manual configuration guide

Recommended settings

To see the current configuration, type:

grep "^mpxio-disable" /kernel/drv/fp.conf
grep "^mpxio-disable" /kernel/drv/mpt.conf
grep "^load-balance" /kernel/drv/scsi_vhci.conf

And expect the following output:

mpxio-disable="no";
mpxio-disable="no";
load-balance="round-robin";

Manual fix

To enable multipath on the machine, you should use the stmsboot utility.

The utility change the relevant values in the configuration and update the device naming (vfstab).

stmsboot -e -D fp
stmsboot -e -D mpt

A reboot is required after changing any of the above settings.
