I am trying to configure SRM with Hitachi SRA. The replication has be setup and is working fine. I have also created Datastore on the PVOL and a VM on it. When I try to configure Array Manager (RMSRA), it is able to detect the array pairs, but fails to find reploicated Datastores.
The HORCM is running as a service on the Windows host where only the Command Device is shown.
Here is what the log says:
COMMAND ERROR : EUserId for HORC : SYSTEM (0) Mon Nov 08 17:09:15 2010
Now I am facing the following questions that may be related to my original problem:
1. I think that my horcm configuration as a Windows service is fine. Then why is the SRA not able to contact HORC manager sometimes?
2. Why is pairdisplay -fw showing some arbitrary storage port WWN (50060e80004a45e3) whereas the array port that is masked to the host is really (fc.200000e08b9cf9a7:210000e08b9cf9a7-fc.50060e800043b6e3:50060e800043b6e3-naa.60060e800043b6e03532313400000097).
I checked the commands that the SRA is firing by monitoring the Task Manager.
raidqry shows the following o/p:
C:\HORCM\etc>"c:\HORCM\etc\raidqry.exe" -IH -l
No Group Hostname HORCM_ver Uid Serial# Micro_ver Cache(MB)
1 --- vcslx087vm1 01-23-03/07 0 5214 06-5F-00/00 2048
3. Why is the SRA starting a new instance (5 in this case) when my service is running instance 4?
