HP 3PAR StorServ 7000/10000 and VxDMP 3.5 / 4

This issue has been solved. See solution.

I was wondering if anyone has experience using HP 3PAR StorServ 7000 / 10000 (V Class) with VxDMP 3.5, or 4.  It seems that these arrays are supported out of the box with 5 and 6.  In previous versions, the libvx3par ASL is available or embedded, but only supports E/F/S/T class 3PAR arrays.  

Although I chose Solaris for the OS, this is not an OS specific question.

Does anyone know of updated support information or have experiences with these integrations?  

 

Thank you!

Hi Graham,

HP 3PAR StorServ 7000 / 10000 (V Class) is released far after VxDMP 3.5, or 4. So I don't think VxDMP3.5 or 4 would support it. 

ASL is a support lib package to enable disk array with their compitable code. So you must apply a supported ASL for the disk array you used. If not so, the function would not be support officially and not guarrantee data consistency.

So you'd better upgrade VxVM/VxDMP to 5 or 6, but pls be informed VxVM 5.0 on Solaris will be end of support at Aug. 6, 2013

Hi,Graham

 

3.5/4.0 is very old version, I didn't find asl/apm for that version, but you can get some document about that version from sort:

Thank you, I know this is a far out pairing of old and new, so I was not expecting supported.  I was wondering if anyone had done it.  I know it's tough, so thank you for responding, all.
