I'm using VEA to administrer a Veritas SFHA 6.2 system (LINUX, two node system), and in VEA when I look at the disks on node1, it shows the expected names e.g.: "sdx" "sdy" "sdy".
On node2, I see the enclosure names e.g.: emc_xxxx
I did run vxdmpadm getsubpaths, and they show exactly the same results set on both nodes.
Is there a way I can change those disks names so that it shows the "sd.." name instead of the enclosure ones?
From the desciption that you mentioned, disk namingscheme would be different on both nodes.You can check naming scheme on both nodes by running following command:
Eg: # vxddladm get namingscheme
NAMING_SCHEME PERSISTENCE LOWERCASE USE_AVID
Enclosure Based Yes Yes Yes
Default namingscheme is Enclosure based and is recommended as OS device names may change with device removal/addition, reboot etc. If you still wish to see device names in OS name format, you can change naming scheme by running following command:
# vxddladm set namingscheme=osn
