    VCENTER 6.5 and IBM V5000 SRA ERROR

    lawrencemagama Novice

      Hi guys

      in desperate need of some help here.

      i am running VCenter 6.5 and SRM 6.5. I am using IBM storewise v5030 Storage.

      i am in the process of completing the installation of SRM but i am stuck on creating and pairing my Array Managers.

      Site Pairing- good

      SRA Status- good

      im using IBMSVCSRA 3.3.1 from the vmware site and configured as described in the documentation and different forums. (Yes, including the tricky test MDisk Group ID).

      The next step is to Add Array Manager. This is where I cannot get past. I select the option to “Add a pair of array managers”. When I reach the Configure Array Manager portion of the wizard. For the CIM Address of Primary SVC. I fill in the necessary and get the below error:

      "Unable to add array manager.

        SRA command 'discoverArrays' failed. Invalid Array ID.

      Refer to IBM SAN Volume Controller troubleshooting.”
