in discussion with my peers this doubt came up.
in case we lose the power of USP, and the batteries also drain out, (the system is totally cold), do we lose everything. assuming the configuration is available on the svp as well on the config fd.
q1. when we start the usp will it read the config from the fd/svp or will it start at all, or is the procedure something else.
q2. suppose we manage to read the configuration from fd and start, will the data in luns be available or is it that everything is lost for ever.
of course people investing in enterprise storage would never end up in this situation, but this was out of academic curiosty.
