While cloud is all the rage, without effectively managed storage, most applications will experience capacity shortfall and/or performance issues. A recent survey* of IT administrators revealed that seventy percent of storage goes unused, creating an extra financial burden on users.

In this webinar you will learn about:

  • The state of the storage market
  • Storage analytics
  • Finding and reclaiming lost storage
  • The additional complexity of virtualized environments

We will also give a demonstration of Storage Analytics.

Storage Controller testingOpen in a New Window


  I need some details to perform some testing. I have been asked to configure the storage system for our e-commerse software for RAID1 and ensure the storage controller works as expected.


I have gone through hpssacli & hpssascripting. I have cook book PDF. I understand the concept to configure RAID1. Now i want to test whenther storage controller is working as expected. RAID 1 means 2 identical data copied in 2 hard drives.

I want to test following scenarios;


a) Write some data on RAID1 configuration.  Make one of the hard drive to fail and ensure the controller will get the data from the different drive.


b) Configure the cache and ensure the cache is having some write data. Force the cache volume to fail and check the data will not be lost.


How can i test above scenarios. I am sitting in a remote location and i don't have any physical access to the storage system. Keeping this thing in mind how can i test above scenarios?


I am new to the storage domain, execuse me if i am asking silly questions. But i badly need support on it.


Thanks in advance.

CommandView Management GroupsOpen in a New Window

I'm about to split the management of our Local and Remote EVA 6500's between 2 commandview 10.x servers and setup Vmware SRM over the top. Currently both Systems are managed by the local commandview instance.


If I setup a common management group as per

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=893asYSAGDk  then I take it I can follow best practice and have the DR EVA managed by the DR Commandview server, and still have the ability to setup replication and manage both SANs from either commandview instance.


So my question is - will existing SSSU scripts need to be modified once the Management Group is used and the EVAs are split to the local/remote commandview instances?  


We have existing SSSU scripts to automate snapshots and backups of certain database volumes on both SANs.

Possible values for 'operationalstate' of cache battery module of HSV300 ?Open in a New Window

I am writing one script which uses value of 'operationalstate' of a cache battery module.
Currently I can see two possible values for 'operationalstate' biz-  'normal' and 'unknown'.

My script need to take care of all possible values for this property.


Can someone please let me know  what all different possible values for 'operationalstate'  of a cache battery module of HASHES controller ?


Getting 'statedetails' of Cachebattery module in HSV300Open in a New Window



I am looking for a SSSU command to get 'statedetails' of a Cachebattery module in HSV300.
In HSV200 we can use SSSU command 'ls controller full' to get the statedetail.

    operationalstate ...................: good
    chargeropstate .....................: unknown
    currentbatterycapacity .............: 252
    maximumbatterycapacity .............: 244
    minimumbatterycapacity .............: 96
        name ...........................: batterymodule0
        operationalstate ...............: good
        statedetails ...................: holding_charge



For HSV300, we have a command 'ls controller_enclosure full' to get cache battery information, however it does not give the value for 'statedetails' of a battery module.


        name ...........................: battery1
        operationalstate ...............: normal
        batterycapacity ................: 186
          serialnumber .................:  64671F2BLVU0Z
          assemblypartnumber ...........:
          hardwarerevision .............: 000*
          firmwarerevision .............: 0050
          sparepartnumber ..............: 460581-001
          modelnumber ..................: HSV300
          vendorid .....................: HP


Is there any SSSU command which gives the 'statedetails' value of Cachebattery module for controller model HSV300 ?


SSSU for linux and alternate CV PortOpen in a New Window

Hello All,


I am fairly new to SSSU and I am wondering if I am missing some thins to have sssu for linux working with an alternate port .


Here is how I try to connect:


$ ./sssu "FILE sssu.cfg.txt"

SSSU for HP StorageWorks Command View EVA
Version: 6.0.2
Build: 5
NoSystemSelected> FILE sssu.cfg.txt
NoSystemSelected> SET OPTIONS CV_PORT = 2374
Error: Syntax error at or near here

Press return to exit

Here is the sssu.cfg.txt file I am using :


$ cat sssu.cfg.txt
SELECT MANAGER <my-ip-address> USERNAME = <my-user> PASSWORD = <my-password>

According to the SSSU reference guide, if I am not using the default port 2372 I should use the CV_PORT option .

And from the above output this specific option is not recognized .


Am I missing something or doing something wrong ?
