Let me go to DC and open server, will try to figure it
-------------------------------------------------------------------
Removing card and messing with connections and MB was not agreed with management and they said to go with RAID 1 for rpool and RAID 5 for application/db filesystems.
Do we have any tools/utility, which can be managed from OS level and we can check status/configuration from there ?
All I can see is below, but it is not giving much details :-

Code:
root@predb-dev2:~# raidctl
Controller: 3
root@predb-dev2:~# raidctl -l 3
Controller      Type            Version
----------------------------------------------------------------
c3              LSI_1068E       1.22.00.00
root@predb-dev2:~#

Search for "sun storagetek common array manager" (for Solaris).

sent from my HTC smartphone

---------- Post updated at 10:36 AM ---------- Previous update was at 09:08 AM ----------

Okay, I'm now on my workstation so here's the detail..........

The raidctl command shows that you have an integrated LSI 1068E raid controller on your motherboard. That is what you would connect to if you pull out the Storagetek. The LSI supports RAID0, RAID1, and RAID1E. So it can't do RAID5.

Sun (Oracle) OEM'd the LSI 1068E chipset and the Storagetek RAID add-in card and you have BOTH of them.

The LSI is configured and controlled with the 'raidctl' command from Solaris but, again, you would need to configure any raid array to be used for the root filesystem by booting from DVD into single user. Then, the 'disk' is visible from the OS install routine.

For the Storagetek you need the package I told you to search for above which doesn't use raidctl (that's for the LSI) so don't get confused.

The Storagetek package you need to manage from Solaris may well also be on the CD that DN2 told you to download and burn. I'm not sure.

Hope that helps.

Very helpful information for me. I was able to download and install "Sun Storage Common Array Manager". But still I am little far from final results.

Code:
root@predb-dev2:/# /opt/SUNWstkcam/bin/sscs

So for clarification can you confirm that you:

Used the STK CD to boot from and (as a minimum) created an array for the root filesystem (probably a 2 x 146GB drive RAID1) and initialised it?

Installed Solaris from conventional DVD media onto this array (which was visible from the install routine).

Now you are attempting to install "Sun Storagetek Common Array Manager" package to monitor the Storagetek RAID from Solaris.

You are getting the errors that you posted????

YES to all questions.
Sun Storagetek Common Array Manager is downloaded (from Installing the Typical Full Management Software ) and installed, which was installed successfully. But when I am issuing /opt/SUNWstkcam/bin/sscs, I am seeing these errors.

The first thing that hits me is that the package you've installed is "Sun storage common array manager" which doesn't mention "Storagetek" which is the RAID controller manufacturer.

I was expecting "Sun Storagetek Common Array Manager" and I wonder whether they are the same thing.

I need to go and check that out.

---------- Post updated at 09:28 PM ---------- Previous update was at 09:20 PM ----------

I also note that you are installing Solaris 11. We need to confirm that the Storagetek monitoring suite is supported under Solaris 11.

---------- Post updated at 09:48 PM ---------- Previous update was at 09:28 PM ----------

Looks like "Sun storage common array manager" is indeed the Storagetek product.

I can't find anywhere that says it doesn't work on Solaris 11.

The CAM software is needed to administrate external storage arrays like the StorageTek 6140 and others... But not to manage the internal HBA card.
