Removing All LUNs from a Storage Port Does Not Remove the Target ID/PWWN From The cfgadm -al Output (Doc ID 1668839.1)

Last updated on JUNE 10, 2018

Applies to:

Solaris Operating System - Version 9 GA and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms


Customer unmapped all Fibre Channel LUNs under a target ID from the storage device and unconfigured them from the host, but the storage port target ID/PWWN still shows up under "cfgadm -al" as "connected/unconfigured", even though all the LUNs were taken out of the storage group on the array/storage device.

Customer executed the following commands:

 

  # cfgadm -f -c unconfigure <c#::pwwn>
  # luxadm -e offline /dev/rdsk/<cxtxdxsx>
  # cfgadm -c unconfigure -o unusable_SCSI_LUN <c#::pwwn>
  # devfsadm -Cv


After the above commands were executed, the format output did not show the removed LUNs, and the cfgadm output still showed the LUNs are connected unconfigured, as follows:

 

# cfgadm -al
  Ap_Id                          Type         Receptacle   Occupant     Condition
  c8::500601633b241edc           disk         connected    unconfigured unknown
  c8::5006016b3b241edc           disk         connected    unconfigured unknown
