Does Sbadmin support EMC powerpath devices?
Sbadmin does not currently support recovery to emc powerpath devices. Data on the devices may be backed up by editing the device_info file. However, the emcpower disks will not appear when booting the Storix boot media at the time of recovery.
The following warnings may occur during backup.
WARNING: Volume Group datavg will be ignored because it contains physical
volume emcpowerb2, which is not a supported device type.
WARNING: Volume Group datavg2 will be ignored because it contains physical
volume emcpowera2, which is not a supported device type.
To enable Sbadmin to create a backup of the disks. Make the following changes on the client that is being backed up.
1) Make a copy from the /opt/storix/config/device_info file to /storix/config/device_info. (Where /storix is the install directory)
2) Edit /storix/config/device info as follows.
#disk:emcpower:a-z::1-15:EMC PowerPath device
disk:emcpower:a-z::1-15:EMC PowerPath device
3) Re-run the backup.
