Support added in VERITAS Volume Manager (tm) 3.1 for Windows 2000 to allow the co-existence of Dell OpenManage Array Manager

Solution



Support has been added to Volume Manager 3.1 for Windows 2000 so that the program can be installed and function with Dell OpenManage Array Manager 3.0 or later installed. After installation, the hardware array functions will be available through Array Manager, and the volume management functions with advanced features will be available through Volume Manager 3.1. To avoid conflicts between the two programs, the volume management capability will be disabled in Array Manager.

Caution: Specific installation / uninstallation considerations are detailed below:

1. Array Manager must be installed before Volume Manager 3.1. Array Manager will not work if Volume Manager 3.1 is installed first.

2. If the two programs are set up to co-exist and Volume Manager 3.1 is then uninstalled, Array Manager remains and its volume management capability is restored. However, if Array Manager is uninstalled, Volume Manager 3.1 will need to be uninstalled and reinstalled to work properly.

3. If the two programs are set up to co-exist, the simple network management protocol (SNMP) extension that allowed alerts from Array Manager objects to be sent to a management console (such as HP OpenView) will be disabled. However, Volume Manager may be reconfigured to send SNMP alerts on Volume Manager objects.
