VxVM vxconfigd ERROR V-5-1-8561 ddl_fill_dmp_info:

Level 2

Hi community,

Recently there was a project to add a new EMC AX4-5 enclosure on top of the existing AX4-5 Enclosure (a new array of disks).

Current cluster is a 6 blade cluster where all blades share the same LUNs (partitions) using VCSFS and PowerPath.

After adding the new LUNs and then running on the master blade of the cluster and scanning the devices (devfsadm -Cv) then the following error was encountered:

# vxdctl enable
VxVM vxdctl ERROR V-5-1-307 vxconfigd is not running, cannot enable

# vxconfigd -k
VxVM vxconfigd ERROR V-5-1-8561 ddl_fill_dmp_info: Path 0x4080280 not found in devlist: Error 0
VxVM vxconfigd ERROR V-5-1-1589 enable failed: System error occurred in the client
    Error 0; aborting

Veritas also creates a core dump file, Here is the pstack output:

Engine log:

Any ideas ?

P.S. All logical paths are shown active by running "powermt display dev=all" towards the EMC array.

LOTS of vxconfigd fixes in SF 5.1:

just had a quick search on Symantec site, nothing found though into known panic strings...

Just looking at pstack output, it suggests that panic is happening during :dmp_getpathindex:  so the function suggests by name that DMP trying to get index of paths & dumping core ..

I would recommend to have following steps (just a try)

--Ensure the powerpath version you are running is compatible with vxvm version you are using.

-- Ensure all devices looks OK from powerpath.

Try out a device tree cleanup:


also, have a pkg consistency check...

# pkgchk VRTSvxvm
