Issue

From the NetApp storage system console, the lun show –v command reports the LUN to be misaligned:

netappstorage> lun show -v

/vol/orabackup_precg1asdl01/orabackup/orabackup_precg1asdl01_new.lun

/vol/orabackup_precg1asdl01/orabackup/orabackup_precg1asdl01_new

LUN created with the correct OS type setting (Linux) uses the fdisk -u –l /dev/sdxx command from the UNIX host to get this information.

Example output:

Disk /dev/sdbh: 429.5 GB, 429523992576 bytes
