Solaris Cluster How to Verify and Troubleshoot Physical Device Paths, when "DID" Device Path is in Status "Fail" (Doc ID 1019917.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 20, 2019

Applies to:

Solaris Cluster Geographic Edition - Version 3.0x to 4.3 [Release 3.0 to 4.3]
Solaris Cluster - Version 3.0 to 4.3 [Release 3.0 to 4.3]

This document explains how to determine if physical device paths to the storage are valid on Solaris Cluster node/system/server. It also troubleshoots the Solaris Cluster DID device layer when "cldev status" or "scdpm -p all" shows physical device paths to the storage path in Status "Fail"

This document shows example using Solaris Cluster 3.2 on new command line. Refer to <Document 1541888.1> for corresponding Solaris Cluster 3.0/3.1 command
