Multipathing Software
This section provides a summary of the data host requirements for the Sun Storage
6580 and 6780 Arrays. It lists the current multipathing software and supported host
bus adapters (HBAs) by operating system.
You must install multipathing software on each data host that communicates with
Sun Storage 6580 and 6780 Arrays.
For Solaris™ Operating System (OS) 9 data hosts, the multipathing software is part
of the Sun StorageTek SAN Foundation software. Solaris OS 10 includes the
multipathing software. For data hosts running supported versions of Solaris prior to
Solaris OS 10, follow the instructions in the Hardware Installation Guide for Sun Storage
6580 and 6780 Arrays to download and install the software from the Sun Download
Center.

Release Notes for Sun Storage 6580 and 6780 Arrays • March 2010
Installation and Hardware Related Issues
This section describes known issues and bugs related to installing and initially
configuring Sun Storage 6580 and 6780 Arrays.
Single Path Data Connections
In a single path data connection, a group of heterogeneous servers is connected to an
array through a single connection. Although this connection is technically possible,
there is no redundancy, and a connection failure will result in loss of access to the
array.
Caution – Because of the single point of failure, single path data connections are not
recommended.
Setting the Tray Link Rate
When setting the tray link rate for an expansion tray, all expansion trays connected
to the same drive channel must be set to operate at the same data transfer rate
(speed).
For details about how to set the tray link rate, see “Setting the Tray Link Rate” in the
Hardware Installation Guide for Sun Storage 6580 and 6780 Arrays.
Upgrading the Sun StorageTek 6540 Array
Bug CR 6783749 – When upgrading a Sun StorageTek 6540 array to a Sun Storage
6580 or 6780 Array, you cannot change the tray ID 85 to tray ID 99 using CAM.
Workaround – You can use controller tray ID 85 for array configurations up to a
maximum of 256 drives.

Hardware Issues
This section describes general issues related to Sun Storage 6580 and 6780 Arrays
hardware and firmware.
Replacing CRUs/FRUs in Less Than 15 Minutes
Caution – Without adequate ventilation and air circulation, the controller tray will
overheat resulting in potential damage to all customer-replaceable units (CRUs) or
field-replaceable units (FRUs). Do not allow any CRU/FRU slot to remain empty for
an extended time. Replace the failed CRU/FRU within 15 minutes.
System Cabinet Doors Must Be Closed
Caution – The front and back doors of the system cabinet must be closed for
compliance to domestic and international EMI regulations as well as proper
equipment cooling. Do not block or cover the openings of the system cabinet. Cabinet
airflow is from front to back. Allow at least 30 inches (76.2 cm) in front of the cabinet,
and at least 24 (60.96 cm) inches behind the cabinet, for service clearance, proper
ventilation, and heat dissipation.
Intermittent Power Supply Failure Notification
Bug 6760395 – CAM logEvent messages intermittently reports power supply failures
and 12 seconds later changes to optimal. This is caused by devices not responding to
polling.
Workaround – No workaround required. You can ignore the failure messages.
The cfgadm -c unconfigure Command Unconfigures UTM LUNs
Only and Not Other Data LUNs (Solaris 10)
Bug 6362850 – The cfgadm -c unconfigure command unconfigures Universal
Transport Mechanism (UTM) LUNs only and not other data LUNs. When this
happens, you will not be able to unconfigure LUNs.
Workaround – Obtain Solaris 10 patch 118833-20 (SPARC) or patch 118855-16 (x86)
to fix this issue.

Tray ID Diagnostic Codes
See Appendix C, Troubleshooting and Operational Procedures, in the Hardware
Installation Guide for Sun Storage 6580 and 6780 Arrays for a description of the
controller tray and expansion tray diagnostic codes.
Documentation Issues
This section describes issues related to Sun Storage 6580 and 6780 Arrays
documentation.
Upgrade Guide Does Not Include Instructions for Battery Age Reset
Bug CR 6887119 – When upgrading a Sun StorageTek 6540 array to a Sun Storage
6580 or 6780 array, the Sun Storage 6000 Series Hardware Upgrade Guide does not
include the step to reset the battery age after the upgrade. Not resetting the battery
age could prompt premature battery replacement due to misreported age
information.
Workaround – Use the Service Advisor battery replacement procedure to reset the
battery age after the upgrade.
Total Cache Size Specification for Sun Storage 6780 Array
In Table 1-1 of the Hardware Installation Guide for Sun Storage 6580 and 6780 Arrays
(820-5773-11), the value for “Total cache size” is reported as “16 Gbytes or 32
Gbytes.” As of the CAM 6.6 release, the revised value is “8, 16, 32, or 64 Gbytes.” The
revised value is documented in TABLE 1 of this release note document.
