Exclusive Opens Prevent Format From Showing All The Mapped Drives On A Server (Doc ID 2109950.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 01, 2016

Applies to:

Solaris Operating System - Version 10 3/05 to 11.3 [Release 10.0 to 11.0]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

 Format is not showing all the drives. There are some devices missing in its output.

On the example below, most of the drives mapped from storage target WWN 50060E8007E3CE22 are missing. Only LUN 0 on this target is seen when more LUNs should be listed. This issue occurred after a host reboot.

The standard troubleshooting steps have been tried without success: the configuration and permissions on the array side have been checked, a devfsadm and a reconfiguration reboot were attempted also.
