Veritas Enterprise Administrator - Disks Names are different

Hi All,

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?

thanks!

Re: Veritas Enterprise Administrator - Disks Names are different

try this on the node that you want to change the disk names from enclosure based to std format

run this command

#vxddladm set namingscheme=osn

then

#vxdisk list
