I have a small question, I cannot find the storage space calculator for below config, so hopefully somebody can help me out.
2x HP Letfhand P4000, 2x HP Lethand P4200:
What will happen if I add the next SAN node number 5 (HP Lethand 4300) on the same config, or what will the Utilization be?
Henry van der Leer
I have the the following setup: two HP DL360 Gen9 servers, each with two HPE 1,6TB 12G SAS Write Intensive SSD HDD. Those two disks are in RAID1, on booth servers. I use VMware ESXI 6.0 u3 , and on booth servers I install the HPE StoreVirtual VSA 2014. There is one cluster with these SSD disks, with several VM on it.
In this setup i have very small value of IOPS, and that makes me problem what I cant resolve.
Did someone had a similar problem?
I would be grateful for any recommendations, how to overcome this problem.
Thanks in advance.
Dear All ,
we lost the login password of our SAN which is HP stoargeworks P4300 G2 and I have no idea how to recover the password. Kindly help.
looking to test some Workload accelerators with StoreVirtual VSA 2-node cluster. Idea is to put in each server one accelerator card and then make network raid-1 over 10GbE links. I know they are not built for this purpose but I am interested is this supported configuration with VSA without going thru SPOCK. Anybody doing it already?
I have two systems SV3200 in stretch cluster. Since I upgrade to 13.5 version I have a problem with the iSCSI ports in one of SV3200. Continually is Resync ports:
The iSCSI port on Storage Controllers are DOWN, iSCSI communication on this storage system is down.
Any idea about our problem?.
Can I make a cluster using one SV3200 and one MSA?
Backgroud is that i have some apps that are mirroring itself so i wont need NR10 and others don´t so i´d leverage both but if NR0 means that these Volumes get stretched to both sites and every NR0 volume will be offline in case one site is failing it is useless to me.
Is it possible to have a two node HPE StoreVirtual 3200 configured in a cluster? Or is it that, each node is supposed to be configured seperately with upto 3 enclosures and I cannot have two nodes in 1 cluster?
The documentation does not state how to create a cluster for the 3200. Hence the question.
we plan to replace our old P4500 nodes with new 4530 nodes.
Our configuration is a multisite SAN with 3 nodes per site.
Now I search a best practice guide to replace the old P4500 nodes with 4530 nodes.
If possible without destroying the configured cluster.
Thank you for your support and your ideas or links.
Good day everyone,
I have a P4500G2 cluster with 8 nodes running 12.5. When we added the 8th node to the cluster it suddenly went to 100% utilization, where if you look at the used space .vs. total space we should be a little less than 50% (see attached screen shot). Because it "thinks" the cluster is at 100% we can delete volumes, shrink volumes, or any other management functions.
Any thoughts on how we might get this cluster to recalulate space?
We have 2 node p4300 G2. One of the nodes ( Node1 ) start normal,. the second node ( Node2 ) give error - Error opening a connection. We lost also FOM. Now we cant connect to ours storage. In CMC we get error - No Quorum.
What can we do to open ours storage .
Hi - I've downloaded and successfully installed (from OVF) the free StoreVirtual VSA on two ESXi 6.0 (free version) hosts, using an NFS share for quorum. It all seems to work fine. When I look at the reported info for each VSA instance, it shows the license as expiring in year 2040, and also AO is enabled. I thought limitations of the free version were 3 year expiry, and no AO??
I have a two-node cluster and a fom. When I shutdown both nodes, off course the volumes are offline.
Now, when fom remains running and I start one of the nodes, say node1, the storage comes online but in degraded state, which is normal.
But, when I do the same thing, but I start with node2 instead of node1, the storage remains unavailable until also node1 is started.
What could be the reason for this?
My customer has bougth two DL380 servers and I have installed on each the VSA software. It is working OK. However I'm puzzled by the licensing. I would like to make use of the free 1TB offer. I understand I cannot use some features like adaptive optimization, >1TB volumes, two-tiering, ...
When I go to CMC, it states that I'm still in evaluation, and that volumes which contain violations go offline in 6 days.
Should I worry?
Can anyone here please share some step by step instructions in how to provision the new LUN from the newly built or upgraded P4500 array ?
I need to commission 4x 1 TB LUN so that I can present it to my VMware ESXi server group.
Thanks in advance.
stupid thing but I`ve done it...
ESXI01 storing VSA01 500gb
ESXI02 storing VSA02 500gb
1 ESXI host storing the FOM
One management Group named VSAMG
I needed more space as per Free1Tb Storevirtual so I went and added additional hdd`s and thought to reconfigure RAID`s one by one
Moved the VM`s to ESXI02, rebooted ESXI01 - added HDD`s - reconfigured RAID (stupidly enough without removing VSA01 from the CMC) - all good - I can install VSA01_1TB fine
Stupid move #2 - I`ve added the new VSA01_1TB to the same MGMT Group - VSAMG
since ESXI02 with VSA02 was still there I had quorum and it worked to move the VM`s to the new increased 1TB storage
when I took down ESXI02 and reconfigured RAID (of course I haven`t removed VSA02 prior) all went south due to lack of quorum
Now my CMC shows 2 clusters, 1 offline with 2 nodes unreachale and 1 available with 1 host and I can`t do anything as I cannot regain quorum
I`ve tried to run recoverQuorum on my alive host VSA01_1TB - result - cliqutilityfailed
I`ve tried to set up 2 new VSA`s with same name and MAC address - I get that error in CMC telling that the VSA`s should be in MGMT Group but they thing that they don`t belong there - Managers are presented as offline - stuck
a pic attached
Q1 - coordinating manager is the alive 1tb appliance so far but I can`t manage to regain quorum due to CMC seeing 4hosts - 3 regular 1 failover hence not being able to add systems/storage/delete volumes anything
Q2 - I have no contract/subscription with HP - how am I supposed to open a SR with them - their websites are insane
Hope I can solve it with your help
Hi I have this fully functional with some spare HDD's (See attached) what the best use for this please ? I know it's old & not suported anymore.
We have a 2 node P4300 G2 cluster utilizing a FOM.
I want to re-configure nodes in RAID 10 from the current 5. I've seen people discuss evicting a node, change the RAID, add it back to the management group however it was always 3 nodes.
How can I do this with 2 nodes. When you try evict a node with a FOM it tells you to remove the FOM from the management group first. If I remove the FOM, then remove a node from the cluster I'm going to lose quorum and the cluster will go down no?
Is possible to disable Network RAID in Storevirtual 3200?. I will use Multi-site strech cluster (Synchronous Replication) with 2 nodes and I don't want use Network RAID for save storage.
Thank you in advanced.
