read only export of LUNOpen in a New Window


I'm new with a 3PAR system. I'm just migrating from our old EMC VNX5300 to a 3PAR 8200.

We use only VMware ESX servers, but for Backup we have a Windows server. On our VNX we exported all LUNs to the backup server read/only and for the ESX servers r/w. That worked pretty fine.

How am I able to export a LUN r/o to our backup server with the 3PAR?

Regards Wolfgang

Hi, This Is Syed. I am working in BdREN.

I am facing problem during 3PAR management console installation in my PC (Windows 10, 64bit). After installation, when I've tried to open the console, it shows " Could not find valid Java virtual machine to load". I've checked the installation log, I found an error like as follows:

Though I've tried to uninstall and install Java several times. Anybody can help me to sovle the issue?


Used spaceOpen in a New Window

I have 3par 8200 where there are only thin dedup virtual volumes on cpg having the same characteristics.

I need to know the available space (not raw) which I can use for my data, regardless of raid level, and the used space (not raw) which is written on disk because so that I can know net total space too.

Thin, Dedup represent hard concepts which  complicate evaluate net used and free disk space.

VMware ESX Host PersonaOpen in a New Window

We have been running InForm OS 3.1.2 for some time, and now want to upgrade our 3PARs to 3.1.3.  We have some ESX Server Psersonas set to "6".  HPE recommends "11", but "6" is still supported (I think).  Do I have to change before I upgrade or can I wait until later; i.e. -after?

We also have some ESX Clusters where 5 of the servers have Persona 11, and 2 of the ESX Servers have Persona 6.  (Dumb of us!)  They seem to work fine now, at Inform OS 3.1.2.  Will they continue to work at InForm OS 3.1.3?




3par not connecting in SSMC after upgradeOpen in a New Window

We had a 3par upgrade done today from 3.2.2 mu3 to 3.2.2 mu3 and i've noticed in SSMC i was unable to connect o the system.

So i removed it from the console and re added, and it finds the name in dns, but i get a message of unsable to connect.

From the ssmc server i'm able to telnet the 3par on port 5783 and that works. Does anyone of any checks i can do, or any logs that might help me see why its not connecting

I'm able to ssh to the 3par.

The snapshot seems to have got mounted.

So looks like the snapshot is mounted already and we are trying to mount it again, which is leading to this error.

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?
