[Orca-users] Orca problems on Solaris 8 with SAN support

I think the problem that you are having is caused by the orcallator.se RAW_DISK code. I think it is unnecessary complex and inefficient (where it loops through the disk information array created in diskinfo.se instead of using the search function supplied in diskinfo.se). Also, diskinfo.se has its own bugs :-(. Try commenting out USE_RAWDISK as Blair suggested.

I'm currently working on a few improvements to the orcallator.se and RAW_DISK is one of the things that I'm looking at. I will post my code to Orca-dev forum after I'm done with testing.


  Good luck,

We're trying to use Orca 0.27, with orcallator.se v1.37 on Solaris 8, using SE Toolkit 3.3.

We have it running on about 100 servers right now, no problem, except for one server we have now built with Sun's SAN Foundation Kit installed. 


Orcallator will not start - it segmentation faults.  Running SE Toolkit with th "-d" option shows this:


if (j<75> > <0>)
if (strncmp(first_name<ssd9>, short_name<md100>, first_len<4>) == <0>)
if (strcmp(RAW_disk[0].short_name[0]<s>, short_name<md100>) == <0>)
strcpy(short_name<md100>, GLOBAL_disk_info[76].short_name<(nil)>)
Segmentation Fault


The disks uses the SAN stuff look very different than they used to (world-wide names), which may be the problem.

Here is "format" output:


root at pf5d9:/usr/local/orca/bin <mailto:root at pf5d9:/usr/local/orca/bin> > format
Searching for disks...done

Can you help me figure this out?  I'm not sure what to do.
