    SRM 6.0 with RDM

    Kanstantsin Novice

      Hi all,

      My enviromen:

      vCenter 6.0

      SRM 6.0

      IBM Storewize v7000

      When I config SRM I did not config LUN for snapshot.

      I have VM with RDM disk. I configured protection group and Recovery plan. When I  start "test recovery plan" I get this

      System logs on SRM server:

      The VMware vCenter Site Recovery Manager Server service terminated unexpectedly.  It has done this 7 time(s).

      SRM logs:

      --> Sun Jul 26 17:55:47.713:[Error][ TestFailoverStart ]Need to find 2 flash copies, but only 0 found, please check your configuration.

      -->

      As a result service SRM on recovery site was stopped.

       

      If I use VM without RDM I just get error that SRM can not create snapshot.

       

      1)What you think about it?

      2)Is it necessary config volume for snapshot on arrays and start test recovery plan before planned migration or it optional.

      3)Do you recommend me config snapshot volumes and use test recovery plan after creation recovery plan?

       

      Thanks in advance.

          Let me know additional details about your configuration. First, you're using the non-preconfigured or preconfigured SRA settings ? And you're using the option to protect Target and/or Source volumes ? The RDM LUNs are replicated ?
