Hello This can be for a number of reasons.  One being the watchdog on the VSP. If it finds the SVP services becomes unresponsive it will force reboot it as well. You might have to ask the support team to pull the logs from the array to confirm. Might be for instance that one of those monitored services ...

Hello Could it be that the SFP is faulty or the cable needs to be swapped around. If you did an FCping it should rule it out. Could you see the WWN logged in on the storage ports? Did you check that all the switch ports are licensed? Sometimes if you disable the port, do a rescan and then enable a ...

Could you ping the 2 end points using fcping on the command line? What administration utility are you using? If you're using an up to date administrator you can see in the WWNN List if the host ports can be seen on the storage ports. ------------------------------ William Jansen van Nieuwenhuizen ...

Hello Edward Did you enable LUN Security on the port where the host groups were created?  Can you do an fcping from the switch and confirm you can see both ends?

Hello All vendors have this issue, it's not an issue with the vendor, it's to do with how the SCSI protocol works.  The Initiator, needs to relog to discover the new paths. What you can try and do if you have multipathing properly configured is to offline a single port from the switch, online it again, ...

Hello Make sure the user you're using for your ISM has the 'System Option' privileges'.  Maybe try setting the correct mode yourself, I believe it's mode 1198, according to this article: https://knowledge.hitachivantara.com/Documents/Management_Software/SVOS/9.5/Global-Active_Device/10_Maintenance ...

Hello I'm not sure what you're expecting. But the volume filling up as things gets written to it sounds like the right behavior. As for block zeroing and VAAI support, those features are enabled on the array via the 'host mode options' you specify on your host groups. Below is a link to some of the popular ...

Hello We created one of these for a demo purpose, it leverages Ops Center Protector to split the pair but does the volume resizing via CMRest if I'm not mistaken.  Best Regards William ------------------------------ William Jansen van Nieuwenhuizen Hitachi Vantara ------------------------------

Rephrased answer below: Hello Typically you'll use something like UVM(Universal Volume Manager) Migration.

Yes, like I said, mixed ports.  Always best to work via a proper support case if you're having technical issues. But as far as I remember on the modular systems, you don't need to change the ports in order to use the functionality. ------------------------------ William Jansen van Nieuwenhuizen Hitachi ...
