Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

This is a Solaris 10 T5-8 control domain with some iscsi LUNs accessed via Infiniband from a SUN-ZFS Storage 7330, all LUNs under mpxio.

There is a secondary IO domain that access the same LUNs.


The iscsi LUNs are served as vdisks by control domain and secondary domain under an mpgroup, ie:

 

Note1. The installation on the control domain and secondary domain of latest "CPU OS Patchset 2017/01 Solaris 10 SPARC" + patch 148427-05 SunOS 5.10: sdpib patch ,  did not solve the issue.

Note2. The installation of Solaris 11 (using the same iso image) on the same guest LDom "guest01" over an FC LUN from Hitachi array (instead of an iscsi LUN from ZFS Storage) was successful, no problem
