Here is a troubleshooting scenario that we thought would be useful to share.

If you try to deport dg , and meet the following error:

VXVM vxdg ERROR V-5-1-584 Disk Group XXX: Some volumes in the  disk group are in use.

First, confirm that the application has stopped.
But ps -ef  can see  many application process.
Manually kill all  application processes, deport  dg , error still.
df  -k  can  see io error entry:
df:/mountpoint :There is an input or output error.

then  umount  /mountpoint

deport  dg  again,  problem  solved.

Remove the Rust: Unlock DAS and go SAN-free white paper explains how Symantec and Intel can bring high availability to an all-DAS environment through intelligent software and hardware.

The attached deployment guide explains step by step how to easily achieve that implementation using Symantec Storage Foundation 6.1. This guide covers all the details needed, from configuring Infiniband and RDMA, deploying and configuring Flexible Storage Sharing, tune the Intel SSDs, configure File Systems and setup Fast Failover for Oracle.

With the release of Symantec Storage Foundation 6.1, Symantec Cluster File System HA enables customers to take internal storage and "share" that storage across any node in the cluster with the Flexible Storage Sharing (FSS) feature. FSS drastically reduces the OPEX associated with setting up a multi-node environment while providing the same storage management and high availability functionality assocated with SFCFS, but across all-DAS infrastructures.

The advanced FSS technology when coupled with high peformance Solid-State Drives from Intel® combine to provide:

• 4X performance @ ~80% reduction in the cost of SAN

• 90%+ Oracle® Log Writer transactions at under 1 ms

• Full availability and redundancy of internal solid-state drives

See the attached whitepaper for more details on how Symantec and Intel can bring high performance and high availibility to an all-DAS environment through...
