VxVM vxdmp V-5-3-1700 dmpnode 5/0x0 has migrated from enclosure FAKE ENCLR SNO to enclosure DISKS
This article explains what the VxVM vxdmp V-5-3-1700 notice means during system startup.
Early during HP-UX booting process of a system using VxVM 4.1 or 5.0.1, the following message is displayed:
Starting vxconfigd in boot mode (pre_init_rc). NOTICE: VxVM vxdmp V-5-0-34 added disk array DISKS, datype = Disk NOTICE: VxVM vxdmp V-5-3-1700 dmpnode 5/0x0 has migrated from enclosure FAKE_ENCLR_SNO to enclosure DISKS
This is a normal notification.
According to the VxVM 4.1 Release Notes and still valid for VxVM 5.0.1 (VERITAS Storage Foundation™ 4.1 - Release Notes - Solaris - Maintenance Pack 1, page 42):
- Initially, the boot disk is marked as FAKE array type. If the boot disk was not excluded from VxVM then the boot disk will migrate to the correct enclosure type depending on discovery and the FAKE array type is deleted from it. In the case where boot disk is excluded from VxVM, the disk does not migrate. The FAKE array still has a disk, it can not be deleted and so the FAKE_ARRAY enclosure type status is still visible to the user.
- This is by design.
The notification explains a normal transition that is done from the FAKE_ARRAY enclosure types, that is assumed by default for the boot disk to the standard enclosure type DISKS used when no DDL matches the enclosure type of the dmpnode.
NOTICE: VxVM vxdmp V-5-3-1700 dmpnode 3/0xfe0 has migrated from enclosure DISKS to enclosure 071D8
This notification will repeat for each LUN (dmpnode) of the type that is transitioned.
After the system completed the startup process, the available enclosure type(s) can be verified using the vxdmpadm command.
