When we first launched Symantec Data Insight, it was to help customers answer the question “Whose Data Is It Anyway?”. Establishing data ownership is very difficult for unstructured data but critical for effective information governance. Our customers know from experience that data owners (and neither IT nor Risk & Compliance) are best suited to make decisions about the data since they best understand its business value and relevance.

Yet, as customers started taking advantage of the analytics in Data Insight to identify data owners, they encountered a process challenge – how to engage and empower the data owners.

It was during this year VISION conference in Las Vegas when I got a very interesting question from Mike. He was running my Flexible Storage Sharing (FSS) lab and he asked me: “So Carlos, with FSS I can use internal HDDs and provide a highly available service, commoditizing the HW and avoiding any SAN need”. Then I started talking about the work I have being doing in the lab for the last months. And it was when I realized I had to start writing and publishing about that work, so here we go.

During FSS deployment we all were very excited about the capabilities to bring any application working close to the CPU, especially when using internal SSDs. We worked very closely with Intel and we published the white paper Remove the Rust: Unlock DAS and go SAN-Free. This white paper described how I could increase by four times the performance of a database. But what happens if I do not...

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.
