Solaris: Software dependencies

Follow

Description

This configuration step is required to make sure a Solaris host has all the required software for provisioning InfiniBox volumes.

Manual configuration guide

Recommended settings

There are different settings recommended depending on the connectivity between the host and the InfiniBox systems. Fibre channel connectivity requires one set of installed packages and iSCSI connectivity requires a different set of installed packages.

Fibre Channel connectivity

To verify the host is ready to work with InfiniBox systems using fibre channel connectivity, run the following commands:

export PACKAGE_REQUIREMENTS="SUNWluxop SUNWfcprt SUNWmpathadm"
pkginfo -i `echo $PACKAGE_REQUIREMENTS`

and expect the following output:

system      SUNWfcprt    Fibre Channel HBA Port utility
system      SUNWluxop    Sun Enterprise Network Array firmware and utilities
system      SUNWmpathadm Solaris Multipathing CLI

iSCSI connectivity

To verify the host is ready to work with InfiniBox systems using iSCSI connectivity, run the following commands:

export PACKAGE_REQUIREMENTS="SUNWmpathadm SUNWiscsir SUNWiscsiu"
pkginfo -i `echo $PACKAGE_REQUIREMENTS`

and expect the following output:

system      SUNWiscsir   Sun iSCSI Device Driver (root)
system      SUNWiscsiu   Sun iSCSI Management Utilities (usr)
system      SUNWmpathadm Solaris Multipathing CLI

 

Manual fix

 

If the one or more packages are missing, install them with pkgadd command.
