For some time I was the only raidcom user at my site so I have no conflicts with others. I developed a set of common scripts that would login, set a lock if update was needed, then logout. This worked fine until another raidcom user started using the same basic process on the same Linux server with a different VSP user account.
What we have found is, that a logout, is a logout for everyone (at least everyone on the same server). So I'm logged in as bruce, someone is logged in as sally, bruce logs off, sally is off as well!. Even if we use different HORCM instances with different command devices.
So my question is, why logout? If Instead I just set locks when I need to update and release the lock like a good citizen when I'm done updating, I should be good? Right?
Is there a down side to leaving login session open?
Any advice would be very welcome.
