I am facing an issue when tried to take VSS Snapshot using Hitachi hardware provider.
Request you to please go through the configuration and any inroads/comments to the issue please let me know.

- I have created a volume z: (on basic disk 6)  -HOST A
- Paircreate with ?noread option
- Executed the foll command  ?vshadow.exe -p -nw -t=b.xml Z:   ?    on HOST A
Getting the following error  ?[S_OK][EV_INVSTP] Invalid pair status.(3)
I have checked the status, the luns are in PAIR state. The only config difference I see is, on one host the snapshot disk label = harddisk9 and on another host the disk label is Harddisk12. Not sure if this has any significance.

Please let me know if there are any prerequisites that need to be done before taking transportable snapshot.

Here's the horcm conf details on HOST A and HOST B
