Goal

we wanted to change the paths of the vxdmp disks without reboot and outage to the existing vxfs filesystems on Solaris 10

Result

Not possible.

Reason

as long as the path is in a disk which is imported,

 cfgadm -al -o show_SCSI_LUN|grep failing 

shows the disks as failing not unusable

even though the disk is offline in format and "vxdisk path" shows the path as disabled.

What I think about this

why can't there be a command to allow us to remove the path completely in vxdmp? the issue would have been easily resolved. I can't see why this function is not provided.

We live in a time when disruption to critical IT systems can have devastating effects on the day-to-day operation of business. Whether these service interruptions come in the form of security threats, configuration errors, power outages, natural disasters, or technology upgrades, Business Continuity needs to go beyond simply protecting data or meeting Service Level Agreements (SLAs). Continuity must be maintained while embracing virtualization, cloud and other new technologies.

Tune in to the next installment of our Google+ Hangout Virtual Vision series for a more in-depth discussion from our Symantec experts, Paul Belk and Arun Balakrishnan, to learn about best practices and technologies for protecting your data wherever it resides and keeping applications highly available. You can also join in the conversation by using the hashtag #SYMChangout.

Executive Summary

Symantec conducted a survey on IT disaster recovery and high availability and customer responses revealed the following key aspects:

   - Business Continuity market opportunity exists for a distinct product that focuses on Disaster Recovery (DR) across multiple data center sites

   - Many customers have multivendor environments and there is a market need for standardized virtualization agnostic solutions (20% of respondents)

   - Per Virtual Machine and Per CPU licensing models constitute 90% of current DR product licensing schemes

 

Introduction

When a disaster, natural or otherwise impacts normal operations of a business, Disaster Recovery (DR) processes kick in to ensure that services remain available. The effectiveness of a plan is measured by how long it takes the business to recover the critical services (Recovery Time Objective or RTO) and how much data is lost in the...

By Shamalee Deshpande, Sr. Product Marketing Manager Information Availability Group, Symantec

The changing attitude toward virtualization in the data center from a recent Symantec sponsored survey, made one thing clear - data center professionals need to be able to do more with fewer resources.  This includes ensuring that applications are available and running smoothly, and keeping data protected – without cutting corners. 

To help customers accomplish their goals to do more with less, Symantec and Red Hat have worked closely over the past few years to give customers the confidence to achieve both the economics and flexibility of a Linux environment, while maintaining high service levels inside the data center.

More and more information is becoming readily available to companies and they are leveraging it to advance business and give consumers what they want. This practice known as “big data” has the potential to yield big opportunities, as well as its share of management headaches if not approached strategically. In the latest CIO Digest article “Big Data Without Big Headaches,” Symantec lays out three basic strategies that IT leaders should consider when leveraging big data. Getting the strategies right will enable companies to make effective decisions and realize the business value of big data. But get them wrong, you can end up with incomplete information and introduce a New Coke. With these data-driven strategies in place, companies like Asia Pacific Telecom, Telefonica de Espana, and Teradata have seen results in both financial and operational performance. Indeed, embracing big data doesn’t have to come with big headaches. To get more in-depth...
