The AIX UltraPath provides two types of installation packages. The following table shows the mapping relationship between installation packages and their drive letters.
In this case, the multipathing software package is UltraPath-x.xx.xxx.AIXy.y.ppc_64.bff
, which generates a drive letter updisk
. This drive letter is named by Huawei customized method and differs from the traditional naming method (hdisk
) of the AIX operating system. As a result, the virtual disk updiskX
cannot be identified or accepted by some application programs.
NOTE: Since VxVM or Oracle ASM cannot identify a disk with the drive letter updisk
, the installation package with Vxvm
characters converts the drive letter updisk
of a virtual disk into hdisk
, enabling the disk to be identified by VxVM or Oracle ASM.
