Issue Description
How can I enable UltraPath installed on the Solaris operating system?

Solution
UltraPath for Solaris developed by Huawei Symantec automatically takes effect upon an application server restart after the software installation.

For the multipathing software integrated in the Solaris operating system, perform the following operation:

1.  Run the vi /kernel/scsi_vhci.conf command to add Vendor ID and Product ID of the storage system to be managed. (You can obtain the storage system Vendor ID and Product ID by running the format command and then selecting the inquiry option.) In this example, Vendor ID is HUAWEI and Product ID is S2300.


device-type-scsi-options-list =
"HUAWEI  S2300", "symmetric-option";

symmetric-option = 0x1000000;


2.  Run the stmsboot -e command. Enter y after every query. Then the application server will reboot.

# stmsboot -e

WARNING: stmsboot operates on each supported multipath-capable controller
         detected in a host. In your system, these controllers are

/pci@1e,600000/pci@0/pci@9/pci@0,2/fibre-channel@2/fp@0,0
/pci@1e,600000/pci@0/pci@9/pci@0/scsi@1

If you do NOT wish to operate on these controllers, please quit stmsboot
and re-invoke with -D { fp | mpt | mpt_sas} to specify which controllers you wish
to modify your multipathing configuration for.

Do you wish to continue? [y/n] (default: y) y
WARNING: This operation will require a reboot.
Do you want to continue ? [y/n] (default: y) y
The changes will come into effect after rebooting the system.
Reboot the system now ? [y/n] (default: y) y
