vxdmpinq utility

Posted in Veritas at 4:39 pm by alessiodini

Under VxVM i can use vxdmpinq utility for check if one disk is shared between multiple hosts:

root@system02 # cd /etc/vx/diag.d
root@system02 # vxdmpinq EMC1_22

Inquiry for /dev/vx/rdmp/EMC1_22, evpd 0x0, page code 0x0
Vendor id : EMC
Product id : SYMMETRIX
Revision : 5771
Serial Number : 12!!m000U

I can run the same command from another node and if the serial number match , the disk EMC1_22 is
shared between two systems
