For UFS or Linux based operating systems, EIS recommends that you create H/W RAID 1 volumes, presenting a single redundant LUN to the operating system. The Fcode utility is accessible through the OpenBootPROM (OBP) environment. This utility consists of a set of special commands to display targets and manage logical volumes. Refer to the Section Configuring Hardware RAID in the SPARC T7 Series Servers Administration Guide . USING THE FCODE FACILITY (FROM OBP) Bring the host to the OBP prompt. Either already there or have to shut down Solaris. List the device paths on the server: ok show-devs There will be a lot of output. Look for lines ending [email protected] Example: /[email protected]/[email protected]/[email protected] Select each controller in turn and (examples path from above): {0} ok select /[email protected]/[email protected]/[email protected] {0} ok show-volumes No volumes to show In the above example there are no volumes – which is correct for Solaris installation using ZFS. You can go to pages 16 or 16 as appropriate. If volumes are present then can be removed by selecting the appropriate controller and using delete-volume If you wish to create a RAID volume to mirror the boot disks use the show-children command to list the physical drives on the selected controller: {0} ok show-children FCode Version 1.00.64, MPT Version 2.05, Firmware Version 5.05.00.00 Target 9 Unit 0 Disk HGST H101812SFSUN1.2T A770 2344225968 Blocks, 1200 GB SASDeviceName 5000cca02d022004 SASAddress 5000cca02d022005 PhyNum 0 Target a Unit 0 Disk HGST H101812SFSUN1.2T A770 2344225968 Blocks, 1200 GB SASDeviceName 5000cca02d021f40 SASAddress 5000cca02d021f41 PhyNum 1 Target b Unit 0 Disk HGST HSCAC2DA4SUN400G A122 781422768 Blocks, 400 GB SASDeviceName 5000cca04e09b2f0 SASAddress 5000cca04e09b2f1 PhyNum 6 Target c Unit 0 Disk HGST HSCAC2DA4SUN400G A122 781422768 Blocks, 400 GB SASDeviceName 5000cca04e0873d0 SASAddress 5000cca04e0873d1 PhyNum 7 {0} ok Create a RAID 1 volume with (for example) targets 9 & a: {0} ok 9 a create-raid1-volume Verify creation of the volume: {0} ok show volumes Oracle Internal and Approved Partners Only Page 14 of 25 Vn 1.9f Created: 3 May 2018
