site consistent feature with Mirroring

Created: 17 Nov 2013 • Updated: 25 Nov 2013 | 2 comments
This issue has been solved. See solution.

I have a setup with storage at different sites. I am using VxVM mirroring (RAID1).

I am also using site consistent feature in my environment.

I have Storage Foundation 6.0.1 installed. 

I have a query on documentaion. In 5.0 Admin Guide http://sfdoccentral.symantec.com/sf/5.0/linux/pdf/vxvm_admin.pdf

I can find all the related commands and description in Chapter 14 "Administering sites and remote mirrors"

I am not finding similar information in 6.0 Admin, http://sort-cdn.symantec.com/public/documents/sfha/6.0/linux/productguides/pdf/sf_admin_60_lin.pdf, I am not finding the section.

I assume that it is supported configuration even on 6.0.1

It would be helpful if someone can guide to the SF 6.0.1 documentation on Administration of sites.

Regards,

Hari.

This is still supported as the 6.0.1 guide says:

siteread
Reads preferentially from plexes at the locally defined site.
This method is the default policy for volumes in disk groups
where site consistency has been enabled.
 
But I don't know which guide "Administering sites and remote mirrors"  chapter has moved to.
I was also looking for where "Agents for Storage Foundation Cluster File System" section which was in SFCFS admin guide in 5.1 has moved to in 6.0
 
Stuff is moved about a lot between "install", "admin" and "advanced" and some is joined like VxVM + vxfs which was in separate guides, now goes into the same guide, but this was gradual so that in 5.1, there were separate admin guides, but a combined "SF" release notes.
 
A matrix would be good to know where we could find stuff.

Hi,

Starting in release 6.0, the sites and remote mirrors chapter is in the Veritas Storage Foundation™ Cluster File System High Availability Administrator's Guide". The chapter is called "Administering sites and remote mirrors." For 6.0.1 on Linux, the link is here:

http://www.symantec.com/business/support/resources/sites/BUSINESS/content/live/DOCUMENTATION/5000/DOC5870/en_US/sfcfs_admin_601_lin.pdf

We restructured some of the documents in the 6.0 release, including consolidating the  Veritas Volume Manager and Veritas File System Admin Guides into the product-level Admnistrator's Guides. Some of the chapters were included only in the SFCFS Admin Guides.

The high-level changes are described in the Release Notes for the 6.0 release, in the section  "Changes related to product documentation". This section mentions the documents that were removed and where the information was moved.

http://www.symantec.com/business/support/resources/sites/BUSINESS/content/live/DOCUMENTATION/5000/DOC5260/en_US/sf_notes_60_lin.pdf

Whenever there are documentation changes to a release, the release notes for that release will describe the change.
