I'm trying to test my DR plan using TimeFinder/snap. When I'm trying the test I get a few errors. We have 2 Symmtrix and the replicated LUNS are snapshoted to be able to test the DR Plan. This error refers to the EmcSrdfSraOptions.xml. I can't find any info on Powerlink related to these errors. Did anyone encountered this kind of problem?
I have attached a copy of the xml options file.
Some update it appears some errors comme because of permission on the symetrix. The domain user logged in SRM need to be StorageAdmin in the Symmetrix so the SRDFSra can connect (incredible but true as since it was added to the symmtrix I could move forward)....But one step further in the log we can see that the vcenter\SYSTEM (where SRM and all the EMC soft are) need the Monitor permission on the Symmetrix...now I'm a bit confused as this kind of configureation is not documented in any EMC document... I suspect the service Emcstorsrvd running under the system account need somehow Monitor permission on the Symmetrix. Did someone already face this kind of things?
PS: The SRM is installed on both vCenter server. Both vCenter are VM and have a RDM mapped to their own Symmetrix (for the gatekeeper) and can see the Symmetrix. Solution enabler is installed locally on each Vcenter and the tab EMC storage and EMC SRDF SRA looks fine. Configuration is correctly display etc
I have received this exact error with malformed XML. The XML must be perfect and at first glance yours appears to be good. It does not appear as though you are using GoldCopyInfo on this configuration, remove that section from ;. I have always remove this when not using it.
Now the permission problem is fixed we had to configure the SRM service and the EMC storsrvd service to run under an account that have monitor privileges on the symmetrix...now we can move one step further....and we en again with anfew errors....apparently we have a licence and a feature problem...strange as we have the solution enabler 7.1 (listed as tjhe suported one in the documentation) and we have license as well....
