Subsystem Device Driver Path Control Module (SDDPCM)

Download


Abstract

Subsystem Device Driver Path Control Module (SDDPCM) installation packages for the AIX operating system.

Download Description

SDDPCM is a loadable path control module designed to support the multipath configuration environment in the IBM TotalStorage Enterprise Storage Server, the IBM System Storage SAN Volume Controller, the IBM Storwize family, the IBM Flash System V840 and V9000, the IBM TotalStorage DS family and IBM BladeCenter S SAS Raid Controller Module (RSSM).

When the supported devices are configured as MPIO-capable devices, SDDPCM is loaded and becomes part of the AIX MPIO FCP (Fibre Channel Protocol)/FCoE (Fibre Channel over Ethernet) device driver or SAS device driver. The AIX MPIO device driver or SAS device driver with the SDDPCM module enhances the data availability and I/O load balancing.

SDDPCM manages the paths to provide:
- High availability and load balancing of storage I/O
- Automatic path-failover protection
- Concurrent download of licensed internal code
- Prevention of a single-point-failure caused by host bus adapter, fibre channel cable, Ethernet cable, or host-interface adapter on supported storage

Prerequisites

Please see the Multipath Subsystem Device Driver User's Guide for any additional prerequisite information.

Note: Starting from SDDPCM 2.6.9.0, we are providing host attachment with SDDPCM driver download link only.

Installation Instructions

See the "Multipath Subsystem Device Driver User's Guide" for installation and usage information.

See the "Readme" file below for information regarding defects and fixes that are associated with this level of SDDPCM code.

See the "SDD Flash Documents" for any post-release, critical product information.

Refer to the "Support Matrix for Subsystem Device Driver (SDD), Subsystem Device Driver Path Control Module (SDDPCM), and Subsystem Device Driver Device Specific Module (SDDDSM)" and the corresponding storage interoperability matrix to determine the support level for your configuration.

Attention: If your server is booting from SAN boot disk and you are migrating AIX OS and SDDPCM, refer to the instructions in SDD User's Guide and this flash.

Attention: If you plan to migrate your VIO Server from version 1.X to version 2.X, see this whitepaper.

Note: DS4000, DS5000, DS5020 and DS3950 storage subsystems now support HACMP with SDDPCM.


Warning: If you are running SVC release which includes APAR IC55826 (SVC v4.2.1.6 and above), or SVC release prior to SVC v4.2.1.6 with an iFix on LONG BUSY, there are a list of required AIX APARs and AIX iFix for your AIX Technology Level. Refer to the latest README for detailed information.


Warning: SDDPCM 2.1.3.0 (and below) requires APARS for use with AIX 5.2 TL10 SP1 (5200-10-01) or AIX 5.3 TL6 SP1 (5300-06-01) or with VIOS V1.4 or above. See this flash for details.
