This document describes the steps needed to be taken for preparing a Solaris host for volume provisioning. Host Power Tools currently doesn't run on Solaris, therefore these steps are manual.

We currently support Solaris 10 and Solaris 11 hosts.


Step-by-step guide

A Solaris host is basically ready for volume provisioning without any further configurations. The following steps make sure the HBA/Multipath drivers are configured correctly, and explain how to provision volumes and list the available luns/paths/disks on a host :

  1. Checking software dependencies.
  2. Setting HBA driver's attributes and global settings for best practices.
  3. Setting up Multipathing.
  4. Checking FC connectivity.
  5. Provisioning InfiniBox Volumes.
