Configuring a VSM+VSM GAD Pair

For a (global-active device) GAD pair, you will create one physical array entry in Array Management for each virtual storage machine (VSM) array in the GAD pair. The procedure to configure a physical array and a VSM array is similar and you need to repeat the procedure for each physical array and for each VSM array.

Before You Begin

  • Verify that you system meets the system requirements. See System Requirements.
  • You must configure the physical arrays and the VSM arrays in the Hitachi Vantara console.

Tips

  • Write down the serial number of the physical arrays and the name of the VSM arrays:
    • For G1X00/F1X00 models, the name is prefixed by the number 3.
    • For GX00/FX00 models, the name is prefixed by the number 4.

Procedure

  1. Configure the primary physical array in Array Management. This physical array is the base array for one of the VSM arrays in the GAD pair. See Configuring Physical Arrays and VSM Arrays for GAD in Array Management.
  2. Configure the secondary physical array in Array Management. This physical array is the base array for the second VSM array in the GAD pair. See Configuring Physical Arrays and VSM Arrays for GAD in Array Management.
  3. Configure the primary VSM array in Array Management. This is one of the VSM arrays in the GAD pair. See Configuring Physical Arrays and VSM Arrays for GAD in Array Management.
  4. Configure the secondary VSM array in Array Management. This is the second VSM array in the GAD pair. See Configuring Physical Arrays and VSM Arrays for GAD in Array Management.
