Yes, older versions of GPFS don't recognize /dev/nvme*.  So you would
need /var/mmfs/etc/nsddevices user exit.  On newer GPFS versions, the nvme
devices are also generic.  So, it is good that you are using the same NSD
sub-type.

Cheers,
Tru.

Correct. The FAQ should be updated shortly.

Spectrum Scale 4.2.3.9 does support RHEL 7.5.

Thanks Simon. Do you mean you pinned the minor release to 7.X but yum
upgraded you to 7.Y? This has just happened to me:

[root@ ~]# subscription-manager release
Release: 7.4
[root@ ~]# cat /etc/redhat-release
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 7.5 (Maipo)

Granted I didn?t issue a yum clean all after changing the release however
I?ve never seen this happen before.

Anyway, I need to either downgrade back to 7.4 or upgrade GPFS, whichever
will be the best supported. I need to learn to pay attention to what kernel
version I?m being updated to in future!

Cheers
Richard

Has anyone ever used subscription-manager to set a release to 7.4 only for
the system to upgrade to 7.5 anyway?

Also is 7.5 now supported with the 4.2.3.9 PTF or should I concentrate on
downgrading back to 7.4?

Yes, I recently had this happen.

It was determined that the caches had been updated to the 7.5 packages,
before I set the release to 7.4/   Since I didn't clear and delete the
cache it used what it had and did the update to 7.5.

So always clear and remove the cache before an update.

Subject: [gpfsug-discuss] Lroc on NVME
Message-ID:

Content-Type: text/plain; charset="utf-8"

We have a new computer, which has an nvme drive that is appearing as
/dev/nvme0 and we'd like to put lroc on /dev/nvme0p1p1. which is a
partition on the drive.

After doing the standard mmcrnsd to set it up Spectrum Scale fails to
see it.

I've added a script /var/mmfs/etc/nsddevices so that gpfs scans them,
and it does work now. What "type" should I set the nvme drives too?
I've currently set it to "generic"

I want to do some tidying of my script, but has anyone else tried to
get lroc running on nvme and how well does it work.

We're running CentOs 7.4 and Spectrum Scale 4.2.3-8 currently.

Thanks in advance.
