NEW SRM 5.1 with NETAPP SRA 2.0.1 getting error when enabling the paired Array.

Jump to solution

I was trying to install VMWare SRM 5.1 with netapp simulator 8.1.2 with netapp SRA 2.0.1.

I created both sites and snapmirrored Both sites and installed SRM. After that added both sites and arrays. The sra getting added successfully to both sites. But when I tried to enable the paired arrays, I am getting  error on the DR sra as follows.

SRA command 'discoverDevices' failed. SAN or NAS device not found

Ensure that the SAN device is configured and mapped to an igroup of ostype vmware and the NAS device is configured and exported with rw rules.

I check the DR sra log file, It showing following error.

HI,

You need to map replicated lun to DR site with read only mode.

Can you give below information

From Netapp array  have you mapped iscsi lun??

Are luns are mapped both the sites (means from target 1 lun to primary site, and replicated lun map to secondary site manually)?

Dear john,

The lun is mapped between the PR site netapp and PR ESX server.

In the DR site the lun is not mapped, is it need to map the lun to DR site?

i have a question , when mapping the LUN on DR site, i have to assign a new signature or existing signature for the lun?

regards,

sarma
