(Doc ID 1949345.1)

Last updated on MAY 09, 2017

Applies to:

Solaris Cluster - Version 3.2 U2 and later
Oracle Solaris on SPARC (64-bit)
Oracle Solaris on x86-64 (64-bit)

Symptoms

Since Solaris Cluster 3.2 2/09 update2 its possible to configure a Zone Cluster on top of Solaris Cluster in global zone.

A zonecluster configuration where VxVM (Veritas Volume Manager from Symantec Storage Foundation) devices are mapped from the global zone via "device match" will generate inaccessible device links in that zones of the zonecluster.

Example:

In this example the zonecluster is called "sunzc" and the one of the zones is called "sun1". The VxVM diskgroup is called "sun_crs11dg".
