DrD version B.1123.A.3.3.221 not compatible with IBM's sdd multipath

Last weak when triying to clone a system with Drd I encounterd and error, if you have ran into the same error, check this put:

Runing the clone command i got these errors:

#drd clone -t /dev/dsk/c16t0d6 -x overwrite=true

- Parsing the system configuration information fails with the following error(s):
"W:"/var/opt/drd/tmp/drdUgNO4Zky3/sconf3yotV5HaC", line 198: Ignoring reference to non-existent disk.
E:"/var/opt/drd/tmp/drdUgNO4Zky3/sconf3yotV5HaC", line 213: invalid disk specified - not found on system.

With the debug command I had a look in the tmp directory of drd and found it couldn't read the IDM sdd multipath devices like /dev/dsk/vpath9, I did a #vp2hd to convert all vpaths into normal devices, and it worked fine.

How to debug DrD:

export SMDDEBUG_SMDinit=9
drd clone -t -x overwrite=true

Look through files in /var/opt/drd/tmp/
