VVols and Priority OptimizationOpen in a New Window

Is someone using VVols with Priority Optimization? According to the white paper "Implementing VMware Virtual Volumes on HPE 3PAR StoreServ" there should be a way to implement QoS for VVols at VM level. In SSMC you can only enable it per VVSET, or SYSTEM (which includes all volumes)? Is there a document which provides more details?

SAN Replication Configuration Help for Oracle Database (11gR2)Open in a New Window

Hi Experts, 


We are using HP 3PAR storage for Oracle RAC database and HP remote copy for replicating data to DR. Our storage is capacity is full. We have another 3PAR box and presented LUNs from that box to database server.

Question: Can I add all LUNs from Box-1 and Box-2 under same Remote Copy Group. 

Requirement is, If Box-2 link failed, Box-1 should stop replicating and vice versa, otherwise there will be difference between Box-1 and Box-2 LUNs. Oracle requires all LUNs should stop replication at same time.  

Would anyone please advise me a solution. 

Thanks in advance.

Starting synchronous remote copy with low priorityOpen in a New Window


We have to stop RC groups one by one for some maintenance operations. Starting groups again will cause a large impact to all hosts: 30 - 40 ms delays before the sync is ready. Starting only one group with 2 TB of volumes inside takes 20 minutes before the sync state is green and the whole time it causes delays.

Is there an option to start remote copy sync again with lower priority?

I'm not sure how to do the servicemag when two disks have failed in one magazine. Thanks for the help.


Can I do the "servicemag start -log -pdid 60 62", then replace two physical disks, and do the "servicemag resume 1 7"?

I'm not sure whether 3par can connect the third-party storage? The third-party storage works in backend, and provide the PD to 3par?

3PAR Space Reclamation - ESX UNMAP and zero detectOpen in a New Window

Morning Peers - we are going through an exercise to UNMAP (write zero) to unused datastore blocks within our Vcentre. From the 3PAR end, I can see the used storage reducing, but the reserved space does not decrease and when viewing the free space on the array I do not see this increase. Is there another housekeeping task, other than compactcpg,  that I need to run to reduce the reserved space ?

How do I remove volumes from a peer persistence configurationOpen in a New Window

We have a Peer Persistence (PP) configuration here at Arconic.  Our user wants to remove several of the volumes in the PP configuration.  I can't figure out how to remove them, and i can't find a Peer Persistence manual.  

When I try to remove the volume from RCIP it says I can't, because it will cause a failover, which i don't want.  When I try to remove the volumes from the RCP Virtual Volume Set, it says I can't, because, blah, blah, blah.

So, what steps do I need to follow to remove volumes from the peer persistence configuration?  

Where can I find a Peer Persistence manual?

Hi All,

I need setup 3PAR with SafeNe, refer link https://www.hpe.com/h20195/V2/GetPDF.as ... 605ENW.pdf page 14 Commands added for the use of ESKM (no GUI support), include below

- importcert ekm-client –ca <certfilename.pem>—will import the certificate of the Certificate of Authority (CA) that signed the server certificate the EKM presents

- importcert ekm-server –ca <certfilename.pem>—will import the certificate of the CA that signed the array's client certificate

- importcert ekm-client certfilename.pem—will import the signed certificate from the CA

If the SafeNet crate Local CA and singed by itself and it could sign request from 3PAR storage, what are below and how can I obtain?

ekm-client –ca <certfilename.pem>

ekm-server –ca <certfilename.pem>

ekm-client certfilename.pem
