This document describes a possible problem in Sun Storage Common Array Manager (CAM) version 18.104.22.168 on Solaris that can prevent registration of arrays. CAM 22.214.171.124 involves the installation of CAM 6.9 and then the addition of either <Patch 147416-02> (Solaris SPARC) or <Patch 147419-02> (Solaris x86).
Array registration in CAM fails, even though the array IP addresses have been verified and out-of-band (network) communication to both controllers has been validated as per steps B and C of <Document 1008327.1> How to validate Sun Storage 6000, 2500 and Flexline Array Controller Out of Band Communication.
Registration via CLI using either the sscs add registeredarray or sscs register storage-system commands returns:
If the IP address you entered is a proxy host address, then please include -q option.
Registration via GUI returns "No items found."
The CAM fms log (/var/opt/SUNWsefms/log/fms.0, for example) includes entries such as:
WARNING: Missing string for ERROR: Device type <host|2540m2|6180|..> not supported.
