Disabling mpxio in Solaris 10

Posted on September 16th, 2011

When using Vertias DMP you should disable MPxIO in /kernel/drv/fp.conf:

mpxio-disable="yes";

And reboot.

Otherwise you will get single path on all of your disks over scsi_vhci
and only one controller visible for VxDMP

root@rtx1 # vxdmpadm getctlr all
  LNAME     PNAME          VENDOR          CTLR-ID               ======================================
c10       /scsi_vhci              -                    -

Posted on September 15th, 2011

For example you’ve got VPS server with limited disk space and you need to install something from ports collection but your do not want to hold all FreeBSD ports tree on disk. If so, you use porteasy to install only port you need.

# pkg_add -r porteasy
# export  CVSROOT=:pserver:anoncvs@anoncvs.fr.FreeBSD.org:/home/ncvs
# cvs login
# porteasy -uv security/cyrus-sasl2-saslauthd
