APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • If an SVC LUN that is in use is unmapped, the AIX SCSI disk
    driver may take a long time (several minutes) for I/O to fail.
    This could lead to issues with applications or with shared
    storage pools, if they are expecting failures to happen more
    quickly.

Problem summary

  • If an SVC LUN that is in use is unmapped, the AIX SCSI disk
    driver may take a long time (several minutes) for I/O to fail.
    This could lead to issues with applications or with shared
    storage pools, if they are expecting failures to happen more
    quickly.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Modified the PCM and SCSI disk driver to change the way that
    they handle the particular SCSI status that the SVC device
    returns when a LUN is unmapped on the SVC.
