Install Solaris Host Utilities 6.2
The Solaris Unified Host Utilities assists you in managing NetApp ONTAP storage attached to a Solaris host.
The Solaris Host Utilities 6.2 supports several Solaris environments and multiple protocols. The primary host utilities environments are:
Native OS with MPxIO with either the Fibre Channel (FC) or iSCSI protocol on a system using either a SPARC processor or an x86/64 processor.
Veritas Dynamic Multipathing (DMP) with either the FC or iSCSI protocol on a system using a SPARC processor, or the iSCSI protocol on a system using an x86/64 processor.
The Solaris Unified Host Utilities 6.2 continues to support the following versions of Solaris:
Solaris 11.x series
Solaris 10.x series
For reliable operation, verify that your entire iSCSI,FC or FCoE configuration is supported.
You can use the NetApp Interoperability Matrix Tool to verify your configuration.
|The NetApp Solaris Host Utilities software package is available on the NetApp Support Site in a compressed file format for your processor. You can download the Host Utilities software package for your environment from the Support site.|
Login to your host as root.
Download a copy of the compressed file containing the Host Utilities from the NetApp Support Site to a directory on your host.
At the time this documentation was prepared, the compressed files were called:
Go to the directory containing the download.
Unzip the file using the
# gunzip netapp_solaris_host_utilities_6_2_sparc.tar.gz
Unzip the file. You can use the
tar xvfcommand to do this.
# tar xvf netapp_solaris_host_utilities_6_2_sparc.tar
Add the packages that you extracted from tar file to your host. You can use the
pkgaddcommand to do this.
The packages are added to the
/opt/NTAP/SANToolkit/bindirectory. The following example uses the
pkgaddcommand to install the Solaris installation package:
# pkgadd -d ./NTAPSANTool.pkg
Confirm that the toolkit was successfully installed by using the
pkginfocommand or the
ls - alcommand.

After you finish, configure the host parameters for your environment using the
Verify the installation:
Solaris Host Utilities is a NetApp host software that provides a command line toolkit on your Oracle Solaris host. The toolkit is installed when you install the NetApp Host Utilities package. This kit provides the
sanlun utility which helps you manage LUNs and host bus adapters (HBAs). The
sanlun command returns information about the LUNs mapped to your host, multipathing, and information necessary to create initiator groups.
In the following example, the
sanlun lun show command returns the LUN information.
#sanlun lun show all controller(7mode)/ device host lun vserver(Cmode) lun-pathname filename adapter protocol size mode ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- data_vserver /vol/vol1/lun1 /dev/rdsk/c0t600A098038304437522B4E694E49792Dd0s2 qlc3 FCP 10g cDOT data_vserver /vol/vol0/lun2 /dev/rdsk/c0t600A098038304437522B4E694E497938d0s2 qlc3 FCP 10g cDOT data_vserver /vol/vol2/lun3 /dev/rdsk/c0t600A098038304437522B4E694E497939d0s2 qlc3 FCP 10g cDOT data_vserver /vol/vol3/lun4 /dev/rdsk/c0t600A098038304437522B4E694E497941d0s2 qlc3 FCP 10g cDOT
