OpenVMS Host I/O Must be Stopped Before Upgrading from pre-V6.2.0.x to V6.2.0.x or Higher
OpenVMS hosts on Storwize V7000 or SAN Volume Controller clusters running V6.2.0.x or higher will experience a loss of access to Volumes, until the hosts' -type attribute has been changed to "openvms".
The V126.96.36.199 PTF and V188.8.131.52 GA release and higher re-instate support for OpenVMS hosts,by introducing a new host type, "openvms".
Customers running pre-V6.2.0.x code with OpenVMS hosts must stop all I/O from these hosts before the upgrade process is started. Once the upgrade process has completed, all OpenVMS host objects must have their -type attribute changed to "openvms", before host I/O can be restarted. This can be achieved using the following CLI command:
svctask chhost -type openvms <host name/ID>
Any OpenVMS hosts attempting to perform I/O to a Storwize V7000 or SAN Volume Controller cluster running V6.2.0.x or higher without the correct -type attribute set, will experience loss of access to any Volumes mapped to those hosts.
