while creating 6th pair iam getting the error and i tried by spliting the first one of this task , then i am able to do pair for 6th.

Error recvd :

(1) Check if the 'HORC or HOMRCF function' is installed in the RAID.
(2) Check if the RCP and LCP are installed in the RAID.
(3) Check if the path between the RAID CUs is established by using the SVP.
(4) Check if the pair target volume is an appropriate status.



commands used to create pair.
$paircreate -g oraprd01dg -d oraprd01disk63 -vl
$paircreate -g oraprd01dg -d oraprd01disk64 -vl
$paircreate -g oraprd01dg -d oraprd01disk65 -vl
$paircreate -g oraprd01dg -d oraprd01disk66 -vl
$paircreate -g oraprd01dg -d oraprd01disk67 -vl
$paircreate -g oraprd01dg -d oraprd01disk68 -vl

All the five pairs went smooth only the issue with 6th pair,after doing split (SIMPLEX) for the first pair listed here. I am able to do pair for 6th but not the first one.

is it due to license issues ?
