3par federationOpen in a New Window

Hi all

I'm trying to establish a federation between 3par's.  I've done the zonig part as recommended by the system but two of four peer links are down, have a look at the attached picture. The peer ports that are not working do have the "connection type" peer but "port type" free. The peer ports that are working  also have the "connection type" peer but but the "port type" is also shown as peer. I hope mye explanation makes sence for someone that can guide me in what direction I should be looking because I'm not shure where to look.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

3par port hostsOpen in a New Window

Hello There, This is more specific to HP 3par Inserver Storage product line. Just wanted to check to see if the host ports on the 3par have to be reservered for different platform OS. I mean can we mix ESX servers with other windows or linux hosts or does ESX have to be on thier own dedicated ports? If so why? Or any other OS has to be on thier own ports and cannot mix with others?

3PAR 7200c - Can a Virtual Volume be expanded non-disruptively to the host ?Open in a New Window


Can I expand a Virtual Volume non-disruptivly to the host either as a fully provisioned or thin Virtual Volume ?

I can see from the 3PAR Management Console the Virtual Volume Edit option.

So If I change the size from 2,400 GiB to 3,600 GiB there will not be any interuption to the host or data loss ?

Best Regards,

High read latency with 3PAR 8200 and Hyper-V 2012 R2 during Veeam backupsOpen in a New Window

We have an issue with high read latency when taking backups with Veeam v9. I'm having issues narrowing down what exactly is causing the problem but I know 100% that the 3PAR isn't causing the latency (HPE verified). I did think it had something to do with the queue depth on the HBA for the servers but I adjusted them from 32 (default) to 96 on each hyper-v server and rebooted.

This is my equipment:

  • 3PAR 8200 with all 12Gbps SAS SSD and 4x-Paths connects to.....
  • Two Brocade 300 fiber switches with 8Gbps transceivers connects to....
  • One HP c7000 Blade Enclosure with FlexFabric modules (two.. one port connects to one Brocade 300 and the other port connects to the other Brocade 300. 3PAR has a port from each controller connected to each Brocade 300)...
  • Six BL460 Gen8 servers and Two BL460 Gen9 servers
  • Hyper-v 2012 R2 (fully patched with HPE service pack 10 and all windows updates)

I am thinking that having only two 8Gbps paths in the FlexFabric modules are my bottle neck but unfortuanlly I don't see any FlexFabric/VC reports you can run to check the history!

Based on my design does anyone have any ideas on what I should look for?

HP 3PAR License UpgradeOpen in a New Window

We have a HPE 3PAR 8440 with total of 100 disks and bought and activated Operating System Software Suite, Replication Software Suite and Data Optimization Software Suite licenses for 100 disks on it.

Now we plan to buy and add another 50 disks to it, but we only need the Operating System Software Suite.

So could we buy the Operating System Software Suite for 50 Harddisks, and don't buy the other two licenses?

Thank you in advance for your help.

The document ID should be 4ENW-4AA5. All searches on the HPE website end in a 'document not found' like error.

I've searched support, enterprise documents, partner site and SPOCK.

Does anyone know where to find it?

Port type will not change to "new" when configuring transport layer for RCFCOpen in a New Window

Good afternoon all,

I am working in a remote lab with two 3PAR's, a 7200 and a 8200 connected through a two 3000B, one for odd ports and one for even, for training purposes.

I am trying to configure the even onboard FC ports for RCFC through the CLI. When I issue the "controlport config rcfc <n:s:p>" command it accepts it but still says "free" under type when it should say "new". showport -par shows that the connmode is changed to rcfc. However, it does not come up as an rcfc port when calling showrctransport. When i try to initialize them i get an error that there are no rcfc devices on that port.

I have them zoned correctly, port 0:1:2 from 7k sees only 0:0:2 on 8k, and same for node 1 on each.

7k 3par OS 3.2.1 MU3

8k 3par OS 3.2.2 MU2

Your help is much appreciated, thank you.
