Host Attachments for SDD on AIX

Downloadable files


Abstract

The Host Attachments allow your AIX host to properly identify and configure ESS(2105), SVC(2145), DS6000(1750), and DS8000(2107) LUNs

Download Description

The host attachments for SDD add 2105/2145/1750/2107 device information to allow AIX to properly configure 2105/2145/1750/2107 hdisks. The 2105/2145/1750/2107 device information allows AIX to:

- Identify the hdisk(s) as a 2105/2145/1750/2107 hdisk.
- Set default hdisk attributes such as queue_depth and timeout values.
- Indicate to AIX device driver configure method to configure 2105/2145/1750/2107 hdisk as non-MPIO-capable devices



Which package to download for which storage devices?

- Download ibm2105.rte.tar for 2105 devices. Also download the SCSI (devices.scsi.disk.ibm2105.rte.tar) or FC (devices.fcp.disk.ibm2105.rte.tar) ESS NIM support addon if you are using NIM.

- Download devices.fcp.disk.ibm.rte.tar for 2145, 1750 and 2107 devices. A NIM support addon is not necessary for the SVC/DS8000/DS6000 Host Attachment.
