Detailed Supportability Notes
  • Note 1:  Array requirements to support Active/Active DMP DSM in a cluster (VCS/MSCS/WSFC)
  •       You must enable SCSI-3 reservation before using the Active/Active DMP setting for MPIO DSMs in Clustering (VCS/MSCS/WSFC) environments (SCSI-3 reservation is disabled by default on Windows Server 2003). You can do this by following steps below
  •       (1) Move any Cluster dgs to another cluster node or deport the Cluster dg.
  •       (2) Select SCSI-3 support on the SCSI Support Tab of VEA (Symantec Enterprise Administrator)This setting affect for all arrays on the system. If you have both SCSI-3 Persistent Reservation capable/incapable arrays on the system, and if you would like to use Active/Active DMP setting for SCSI-3 Persistent Reservation capable arrays, then you should select SCSI-2 support and then run command in next step (3) for each array.
  •       (3) vxdmpadm [-g] setdsmscsi3
  •       (4) Optional: After setting "SCSI3 support" with DMP DSMs, restart the service by running the following CLI commands:
  •       net stop vxvm
  •       net start vxvm
  •       Please refer Symantec Storage Foundation Administrator's Guide for more details.
  •  
  • Note 2:  
  •       - SUN 2500 series include SUN 2510, SUN 2530 and SUN 2540.
  •  
  • Note 3:  
  •       - IMPORTANT: These arrays require additional configuration steps in order to work properly with Symantec Storage Foundation for Windows. Before attempting to use any of these arrays with Symantec Storage Foundation for Windows DMP software, please contact the array hardware manufacturer for additional configuration instructions and updates. Several special settings must be enabled on these arrays to allow compatibility with DMP, including Auto Volume Transfer (AVT), also referred to as Auto Logical Drive Transfer (ADT). Specific firmware levels from the manufacturer for these arrays may also be required.
  •       - DMP DSM support for the StorageTek Flexline 300 Series Storage Systems includes the FLX380 array only.
  •  
  • Note 4:  
  •       - The Sun StorEdge 6130 array requires additional configuration steps in order to work properly with Symantec Storage Foundation for Windows. Before attempting to use the Sun StorEdge 6130 array with Symantec Storage Foundation for Windows DMP software, please contact the array hardware manufacturer for additional configuration instructions and updates. Several special settings must be enabled on these arrays to allow compatibility with DMP. Specific firmware levels from the manufacturer for these arrays may also be required.
  •  
  • Note 5:  
  •       - IBM SDD Version 2.4.2.0-1 is not supported, there are known issues of Blue screen (BSOD) during use of this version of the driver.
