APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • The target server has no physical disks installed and is using
    multipath SAN.  OSD can see the disks in the target inventory,
    but upon deployment, the RHEL 5.6 setup installation does not
    see the multipathed SAN.  Thus it will fail without performing
    any installation.  This happens in kernel-free mode only.
    

Local fix

  • A code fix is required to utilize multipath SAN disks in a RHEL
    5.6 deployment.  In addition you must have the following set:
    - a hardware configuration rule matching the target model
    information, specifying a linux kernel option 'mpath'
    - a profile configuration change to the disks indicating
    /dev/mapper/mpath0 as the logical disk.
    

Problem summary

  • Kernel-free flow was unable to:
    i) pass parameters to linux kernel
    ii) manage installation of fallback deployment engine
    

Problem conclusion

  • A fix for this issue will be delievered in TPM f OSD 711 FP9
