the vm server has srm and horcm installed. I've seen some references about mapping a command device to the vm via rdm. This is for sure a vmware task but does anybody have some more information I can share with our vmware team?
Yes, this is possible and we have done it on a couple VMs. It's pretty straight forward, but here are a couple tips. I assume this is on Windows.
Hope that helps.
Just make sure you set the CMD Dev attribute on the LDEV before you map it to the ESX Host(s) otherwise ESX will cache the LDEV attributes and it wont be 'Seen' as a CMD Dev until you remove the mapping and the ESX host is rebooted. You can then add it in again.
thanks! our vm guys were able to set this up very quickly with this info
