Cannot start DBSM (Time out occurred.) || CsaStartSession failed for datalistOpen in a New Window

Cell Server OS : Linux xxx.xxxx.com 2.6.32-696.1.1.el6.x86_64 #1 SMP Tue Mar 21 12:19:18 EDT 2017 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

We are getting Cannot start DBSM (Time out occurred.) error in oracle backups.

some times backup get skipped and are not executed as per schedule, when checked in event logs we see CsaStartSession failed for datalist error.

We have this issue from DP 9.08 version and now we upgraded to 9.09 but still issue is there.

can some one suggest anything to check to fix this issue, there is no port range specified in OMNIRC file.

Any way to find whats wrong with CRS services As DBSM and BSM are owned by CRS services.

Any advice to check in OS level to see if the cause is due to OS configuration. 


Data Protector data flow and network ports usagesOpen in a New Window


I'm trying to visualize the DP traffic and the network ports that can be used in the data flow before and after DP v9.0.9 (please find attached my drawings)

I'm not sure about the direction of traffic (where is it only outgoing or incoming or both),or maybe there are a lot of mistakes. So who can help me.

Intelligent Provisioning + Insight Diagnostics Grown Defects Thresholds?Open in a New Window

Hi Everyone,

Looking for some information in regards to HP's own diagnostics software, Insight diagnostics and more recently the same software now built into Intelligent Provisioning.

With regards to HDD's,  what are the thresholds for grown defects? Also unrecoverable errors?

We also use SCSI Toolbox which gives us the options to see these tables, but HP's software doesn't give this information...It is either Pass or Fail self tests and nothing more. Any information would be brilliant.

Designing a shared storage with 1.5PB for two physical/virtual serversOpen in a New Window

Hi EveryOne,

I have a requirement of sizing a storage solution for 2 servers which are in Hyper-V. I have thought of many options like 3PAR. MSA, Even StorageOnce as NAS. But all these end up with huge cost or some other challange . Anyone has any idea to size a cheap solution for the below requirement.

I have the application server where it has to storage data of 1.5 PB. This server can be a virtual server inside Hyper-V with OS cluster or I can take out these server into 2 physical server with OS cluster. The storage requirement is to make a shared storage for my huge Data ( mainly files, video, documents etc..) which is about 1.5 PB usable( this is the data size after 5year and staring will be around 250TB). Which is the cheapest option available.

Also I need the same storage for DR and replication primary to DR. Even I can think of some double take solution if it is not available with storage

I have tried the below options,

1) 3 x MSA 2040 storage shared over SAN -> For this the price is ok but its take lots of rack space and moreover the single volume size is only 16TB.So so many volumes needs to be created.

2) 3PAR StoreServ. -> The only reason I cant choose this is because of high price.

3) This Option I thought with two or three D6020 enclosure attached to a DL 380 Server and using windows storage space feature make it as iSCSI storage and present to the Application server. -> Here the challange is , this solution is depends on the windows OS and its not meant for enterprise software defined storage.

4) The storevirtul option again need to have network RAID for high availability and one full set capacity has to dedicate only for HA.

Appreciate advice and suggestion from Experts on the above options or Even a better and cheap options .

Counterfeit ProductsOpen in a New Window

Dear users,

Recently I have seen some "Tamper Evident Seals" on the external packing (box) of HPE Hard Disk Drives. I put them here, and I want you to give your opinion about these Labels that whether they are counterfeit Labels or just new and original Labels from HPE?



And another complain of HPE, why there is not any "easy to find" section for useres in your website to show and tell the security tips about original and fake products, new version of Seurity Labels and other issues about Verfication of products, especially HDD and Memory modules.


RMC-O problem with ORACLE_HOMEOpen in a New Window



After a sucessfull RMC-O client install in the 02 RAC servers and do the register of this server in the RMC-O GUI, we are having a problem with the "+Oracle Database".

When i try to register a database putting the Oracle SID we receive the following error:

"No databases/instances found for registration".

Reading the support ticket i found on it:

2016-11-08 10:42:32.183 5547 50341360 ERROR rmoracle.rmoworker.sshclientcmdhelper [req-19762cc3-b45e-4322-848f-9f7c47d95822 bfff6028fb98408b8f190a8c915b6883 9912756452644e72840bc1db0e08a231] "rmco_client" returned error code 251 on server ""

So, the error is right because the "ORACLE_HOME" of this environment doens't "/oracle/ECP/11204", the right is "/oracle/ECP/112".

Finally, the doubt is: Where and How the RMC-O client read the informations about the Oracle ?







Support Windows Server 2016 Storage Spaces Direct?Open in a New Window


Windows Server 2016 Datacenter has introduced a new virtual storage technology for clusters called Storage Spaces Direct.

HPE is fully certified for the prececessor technology, Storage Spaces, under Windows Server 2012R2, but has been silent on Storage Spaces Direct as far as I can see.

I need to replace an old HPE cluster and it looks like Storage Spaces Direct would be a much better option than a physical shared storage array or a SAN.

Here's an article in an HPE storage blog which shows some sample configurations: /t5/Transforming-IT/Microsoft-Software-Defined-Storage-with-Storage-Spaces-Direct/ba-p/6872530#.WBpkLHkzWUk

If I order one of these configurations, will they work?  Can I build a Storage Spaces Direct cluster with HP hardware?  The Microsoft web site lists some partners that support Storage Spaces Direct but HP is a glaring omission; does this mean that HPE is pushing LeftHand solutions and won't support Storage Spaces Direct any time soon?

I'm hoping that HPE is doing testing and will announce support with a configuration white paper soon but I don't know.  I realize that HPE can't pre-announce in this forum but any statement of direction would be appreciated! PM OK...

If this is posted to the wrong forum, please move it or let me know.

Need to Update Firmware on Brocade 4/12 SAN SwitchOpen in a New Window

Hi, I need to get firmware upgraded on 4 brocade 4/12 SAN switches for HP c-Class enclosures. The firmware on it at the moment is 5.3.0D. Is there somewhere that provides upgrade paths and also a time period for each upgrade. I have read that this should not require downtime if done one switch at a time. I just want to get more information on this if someone could point me in the right direction - thanks.


unable to delete files on HP Data DriveOpen in a New Window



I've been using HP Data drive for a while now and was surprised to get a "disc full" error. It seems I have a lot of files in the recycle bin that clutter my HP Drive.



The problem is, I can't seem to delete some of the files because they are too big! Trying to empty the bin or deleting them directly in the web interface results in "Error 413: Request Entity too large". 


I have transfered everything I needed out of the drive but I haven't found a way to format or wipe the disk...


Any help is appreciated
