we have a junior AIX admin who was successful into installing RamSan  behind an IBM SVC..
but when he tried to install it without the SVC (directly attached to frame)..he found it coming as 112 disks!!
what could be the issue here?

It is an IBM FlashSystem 820 running  firmware 6.3.1.
 
All four HBAs are used for redundant access to the dual san.

It is a rebranded Texas Memory Systems device.

I assume with "directly attached to frame" you mean "directly attached to an AIX system or VIOS" ?

If so, your problem cannot be a multipathing issue, even if you don't have the SDDPCM 2.6.3 drivers installed - native MPIO is supported by all 9831 models.

The basic question is: What did the SVC "see" on its backend side? Could it be that you actually created 112 LUNs on the Flash System and pooled them in the SVC so that they were just hidden behind it?

You could use the Flash System's CLI to run the command "lu" or use the GUI (click the Logical Units node in the system tree on the left) to check how many LUNs are present.

this is what i got from our SAN admin
==========================================================================
it is on the aix side.

I think we had the same issue when they tried to have aix talk to the 8100 and a fatT at the same time.

8100 needed SDD and FastT needed MPIO.

they had to have separate adapters as the drivers interfered
==========================================================================

what do you think?

SDD and MPIO do not interfere (in fact SDD rely on MPIO), but SDD/MPIO and RDAC cannot coexist on the same adapter.

Do you have RDAC (FastT drivers) on AIX along with SDD? In this case, if you didn't separate the backends thouroughly (SAN zonng) you'll indeed run into problems.

SDD and RDAC cannot manage the same HBA!

How can we check that?

Seems so.

Run

lsdev -p fcsx

against each of your fibre channel adapters (fcs0, fcs1, fcs2, ...)

If besides "fscsix" there are child devices "dacx" then this HBA might be used to serve RDAC devices.

Run fget_config -Av

and check which dacx controllers have hdisks below them.

Check with

lsparent fscsix

for other non-RDAC hdisks.

fget_config does not require root privileges. You don't have any RDAC controlled devices, as it seems.

I assume you didn't find any dacx devices with lsdev!

But I saw that the Flash 820 disks show up as "Other FC SCSI Disk Drive"!

Which is your AIX version, TL and SP? Older versions have a problem with the 9831 and MPIO.

Maybe you'll have to upgrade your AIX.


AIX 6.1 TL 7 needs APAR IV38996
AIX 6.1 TL 8 needs APAR IV38225

AIX 7.1 TL 1 needs APAR  IV41458
AIX 7.1 TL 2 needs APAR IV38226

There are fixes for AIX 5.3 WPARs on Power7 as well.

AIX 6.1 TL 9 and AIX 7.1 TL 3 should have incorporated the fixes (maybe not the WPAR fixes).

instfix -i | grep  IV41458
instfix -i | grep  IV38226

I'm sure you won't find the fixes for those APARs, because IBM Flash system is not supported on AIX 7.1 TL 0.

Check the requirements here:
http://www-03.ibm.com/systems/support/storage/ssic/interoperability.wss

You must upgrade to TL1 and apply IV41458 or TL2 and apply IV38226 (both will bring your system to TL2 SP1) or, preferrably, upgrade to TL 3.
