Solaris and Netbackup, Issues with the bpcd process Very often I run into the issue that the bpcd process is getting hung or having similar issues. Errors might be like: # netstat -a |grep -i bpcd reports CLOSE_WAIT bpcd is not responding One Solution is to restart the process: Solaris up to 9: restart by using # /etc/init.d/inetsvc stop; /etc/init.d/inetsvc start to restart the full inetd process make sure you use the full line else you might drop the network. Solaris 10: # svcs -a |grep bpcd to see the process and state. # svcadm restart svc:/network/inetd:default           to restart the demon # svcadm restart svc:/network/bpcd/tcp:default  to restart the demon if its in maintence mode after those commands: # svcs |grep bpcd maintenance    10:28:52 svc:/network/bpcd/tcp:default Then use # svcadm clear svc:/network/bpcd/tcp:default # svcs |grep bpcd       shall report online          9:25:05 svc:/network/bpcd/tcp:default reference:    http://seer.entsupport.symantec.com/docs/256685.htm Sometimes it happens that bpcd appears to be ‘listening’ […]

SUN Operating System Disk Replacement Procedure Even though it seems to be a easy task to replace the OS Disk there are often issues on the correct replacement. Follow this rough guideline for Disk replacement. This procedure assumes that the main disk (c1t0d0) has failed and the mirror disk (c1t1d0) is working properly.   1. Log into the server console as root. 2. Check the current metadevices configuration metastat -t metastat -p >> /etc/lvm/md.tab metadb -i 3. Detach the failed disk from the mirror. On this case all metadevices pointing to c1t0d0 disk. metadetach -f d1 d10 metadetach -f d2 d20 metadetach -f d3 d30 metadetach -f d4 d40 metadetach -f d5 d50 metadetach -f d6 d60 4. Clear the metadevices of the failed disk metaclear d10 metaclear d20 metaclear d30 metaclear d40 metaclear d50 metaclear d60 5. Remove the replicas from the bad disk metadb -d /dev/dsk/c1t0d0s3 6. Unconfigure […]

Procedure to Re-layout the Solaris OS Disk Note: Before proceeding with this procedure is very IMPORTANT that you follow the following pre-requisites. a) Capture the current partition table layout of the OS prior to the re-layout Part  Tag         Flag  Cylinders   Size        Blocks 0     root        wm    0 –  2177   3.00GB      (2178/0/0) 6292242 1     swap        wu    2178 – 3629 2.00GB      (1452/0/0) 4194828 2     backup      wu    0 – 24619   33.92GB     (24620/0/0) 71127180 3     unassigned  wm    3630 – 3644 21.16MB     (15/0/0)    43335 4     unassigned  wm    3645 – 3659 21.16MB     (15/0/0)    43335 5     unassigned  wm    3660 – 5837 3.00GB      (2178/0/0)  6292242 6     unassigned  wm    5838 – 6563 1.00GB      (726/0/0)   2097414 7     unassigned  wm    6564 – 2461924.87GB     (18056/0/0) 52163784 b) What is the NEW layout we want to have? Part        Tag         Size 0         root        8.00GB 1         swap        8.00GB 2         backup      33.92GB     <– This is the size of the disk 3         unassigned  21.16MB     <– Metareplicas […]
