Shared RTD Vary Path Command takes RTD Offline (Doc ID 1623273.1)

Last updated on FEBRUARY 11, 2014

Applies to:

Sun StorageTek VSM System - Version 4 to 5C [Release 4.0 to 5.0]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

 When a vary path command, introduced in ELS7.1, is issued to a shared RTD the consequence can be that the entire RTD (not just a path) can be taken offline from all attached VTSS units.

 The shared RTD can go offline in response to the vary path command even when in use by another VTSS and this can in turn result in job abends associated to the other VTSS.

Changes

 Possible recent upgrade to ELS7.1 which introduces the vary path command for shared RTDs.
