zpool status shows non-multipathed devices even though Solaris multipathing has been enabled (Doc ID 1363311.1)

Last updated on MARCH 15, 2021

Applies to:

Solaris Operating System - Version 10 3/05 to 11.1 [Release 10.0 to 11.0]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Solaris traffic manager has been enabled on disks which are used by a ZFS pool.

format output shows the correct disk devices, however as below we see a mix of non-multipathed and multipathed devices:


Solaris Traffic manager (multipathing) has been enabled, the system rebooted and based on format output the disks in the zpool should all be prefixed with "c4" (controller 4).



 The change which triggers this issue is enabling of multipathing or changing of physical device paths.
