FAQ / What do the mapmgr events mean?

STMF_API_IMPORT_LU_FAIL

ARGS: zvol= stmfResult=0x<code_in_hex> stmfResultConverted=

This event signals that the stmf API call stmfImportLu has failed for the LU corresponding to .  The hex value <code_in_hex> or the human readable string may help determine why this call has failed.  <code_in_hex> is the actual exit code of the API call and will either contain documentation on this exit code or just the stmf API macro label for the exit code.

MAPMGR_RESTORING_GROUP(S)

ARGS: zvol=

This means mapmgr is going to try and restore some groups as explained in the “group awareness” section of the advanced section of the “What does mapmgr (V3.4.0) do and how do I use it?” FAQ.  So one or more groups referenced by the views of the logical unit corresponding to have been lost.  To find out more detailed information on MAPMGR_RESTORING_GROUP(S) events consult the mapmgr logs when they occur.

STMF_API_ADD_VIEW_STILL_FAILING

ARGS: zvol=

This means that in spite of the above or below event, mapmgr still cannot add a view (see above/below event). To find out more detailed information on STMF_API_ADD_VIEW_STILL_FAILING events consult the mapmgr logs when they occur.

MAPMGR_SETTING_TG_TO_ALL

ARGS: zvol=

This means mapmgr is going to set a target group to ALL because a STMF_API_ADD_VIEW_STILL_FAILING event has occured after a MAPMGR_RESTORING_GROUP(S) event AND we are in comstar HA max mode*.  So one or more groups referenced by the views of the logical unit corresponding to have been lost, cannot be restored and we are in comstar HA max mode.  To find out more detailed information on MAPMGR_SETTING_TG_TO_ALL events consult the mapmgr logs when they occur.

*Comstar HA max mode is a mode that when enabled means mapmgr will set target groups to ALL when they have been lost and cannot be restored.  To enable/disable comstar HA max mode create/delete the file /opt/HAC/RSF-1/etc/.comstarHAMaxMode
