IBM® Copy Services Manager delivers support for advanced copy services capabilities on IBM DS8000® systems, IBM SAN Volume Controller (SVC), IBM Spectrum® Virtualize systems, IBM FlashSystem® A9000 series, and IBM XIV® systems. These capabilities include automating administration and configuration of these services, operational control of copy services tasks (starting, suspending, and resuming), and monitoring and managing the copy services sessions.

Copy Services Manager supports Metro Mirror, FlashCopy®, Safeguarded Copy for cyber resiliency, and Global Mirror on the DS8000 and SVC hardware platforms. Advanced disaster recovery functions are also supported with failover/failback (planned and unplanned) from a primary site to a disaster recovery site. Copy Services Manager can monitor the performance of the copy services that provide a measurement of the amount of replication and the amount of time that is required to complete the replication operations. Copy Services Manager also supports multitarget with practice capability for both Metro Mirror and Global Mirror.

By using Copy Services Manager on DS8000 or IBM Spectrum Virtualize storage devices, tasks that took up to five steps can be accomplished in just one. Copy Services Manager also provides advanced features across the entire replication environment, such as the ability to schedule tasks against Copy Service Manager sessions and the ability to set up a practice session. The practice session in Copy Services Manager enables you to test your disaster recovery environment without interfering with daily operations so that you can run a practice session before you perform the actual action.

Overview

Top rule

Copy Services Manager is a replication management solution that delivers central control of your replication environment while helping to simplify and automate complex replication tasks. With Copy Services Manager, you can coordinate copy services on a variety of IBM Storage Systems, including but not limited to, DS8000, SVC, IBM Spectrum Virtualize controllers, IBM Storwize® V7000, IBM FlashSystem A9000 and A9000R, and IBM XIV. You can help prevent errors and increase system continuity using source and target volume matching, site awareness, disaster recovery testing, and standby management.

Copy Services Manager 6.3 offers the following improvements over the previous release:

  • Support for DS8000 to restore Safeguarded Copy backup to production
  • Ability to update Storage Hardware Management Console (HMC) connection user ID and password through the Copy Services Manager API
  • Device number, subchannel, and unit control block address in Copy Services Manager
  • Ability to change from multitarget to cascading mode and back with multitarget three-site session types
  • Health overview panel providing details on the number of volumes copied and capacity managed
  • A ResumeGM command on DS8000 Global Mirror sessions allowing for faster restarts after brief pauses in consistency group formation
  • Documentation for setting up an external syslog server to monitor Copy Services Manager messages files in order to send events to a centralized event handler
  • Ability to programmatically enable or disable scheduled tasks which is needed to prevent issues during cases such as provisioning automation
  • Automatic setting of the preserve mirror (-pmir) setting for a pair based off the role pair defined in the properties file after any failover for the relationship, helping to ensure that after a failover event, flashes can continue on that volume prior to restarting remote replication
  • Ability to predefine which port pairs Copy Services Manager should use when setting up control paths between a master and subordinate storage system in a Global Mirror environment
  • Ability to schedule a task to run at a future time, but only once
  • Enhancements to how Copy Services Manager handles disconnect errors from DS8000 to ensure that the reconnect is attempted on issues other than invalid username/password
  • Copy Services Manager server name will be included in the backup file name so that clients managing more than one Copy Services Manager server know which backup file goes with which server
  • Copy Services Manager has added the --saveuilogs action for collecting diagnostic information on DS8000 storage systems

Description

Top rule

Copy Services Manager reduces the number of steps required for many copy services management activities and has many added benefits over other replication methods. Commands are efficient and easy to understand. An active and a standby server can both be set up to enable server redundancy. You can define default port pairings for logical paths on DS8000 Storage systems. Progress reports of the copies within the sessions are available within reports. You can help ensure visibility by setting up RPO warnings and severe threshold alerts, and the RPO data can be exported in CSV format for easy analysis.

Safety features are built-in with Copy Services Manager. These features include prompts or warnings before an action is executed, defined user roles to help prevent unapproved actions, volume protection capability, and site awareness to help prevent incorrect hardware relationships.

Copy Services Manager is well-integrated with z Systems®, even when running on a distributed systems server. The server function runs in a z/OS® address space. You can use FICON® for FICON-attached volumes without a TCP/IP connection when the system mover is present. TCP/IP can be used for volumes without FICON attachment. Hardened freeze support ensures consistency can be maintained for a Metro Mirror session even when there is loss of access to the Copy Services Manager server. The z Systems storage administrator can monitor both mainframe (ECKD) DASD volumes and nonmainframe (FBA) disk volumes.

Copy Services Manager delivers the ability to manage basic HyperSwap®, Metro Mirror with HyperSwap, or Metro Global Mirror with HyperSwap when all primary and secondary devices are defined to z Systems with available paths. HyperSwap provides continuous availability by handling both planned and unplanned automatic swapping of I/O requests from the primary to secondary site for Metro Mirror pairs. Operator interaction is not required, making this nondisruptive to the application.

Copy Services Manager delivers support for cyber resiliency by providing the ability to manage Safeguarded Copy solutions for DS8000 systems. In today’s world where clients face the daily threat of cyberattacks, Safeguarded Copy can help ensure that they have multiple backups of their data available that they can use to recover or restore their data from. These backups are stored in storage that is not addressable, preventing the deletion of the backups from malicious intent.

Copy Services Manager Basic Edition is an entitled version of Copy Services Manager on z Systems providing continuous availability with HyperSwap, without disaster recovery capabilities. Metro Mirror with HyperSwap and Metro Global Mirror with HyperSwap support adds in disaster recovery capabilities along with the high availability of HyperSwap in solutions with two or three sites. Once Copy Services Manager loads the configuration, swap by command or event can be managed directly from z Systems. The same I/O supervisor component handles the actual swap as with IBM Geographically Dispersed Parallel Sysplex®. This HyperSwap is coordinated across the sysplex and can also be managed through Copy Services Manager from a remote server.

By using Copy Services Manager for management of your copy services, you can help reduce your workload by using less commands and improve safety through precommand execution warnings and user roles. The integration of Copy Services Manager with z Systems and support for Metro Mirror, Global Mirror, and HyperSwap helps to ensure your replication is managed in a single place and in an efficient manner.

IBM Copy Services Manager z/OS FlashCopy Manager is a tool to assist in the integration of IBM DS8000 FlashCopy Services into the z/OS batch production environment. z/OS FlashCopy Manager will deliver the tools to discover, document, and autogenerate FlashCopy configurations, and build batch invocation jobs to be included in complex job streams that include other applications of software. You will also be able to control the entire FlashCopy process using standard z/OS job scheduling facilities to accomplish the required set of business objectives.

Statement of good security practices

Top rule

IT system security involves protecting systems and information through intrusion prevention, detection, and response to improper access from within and outside your enterprise. Improper access can result in information being altered, destroyed, or misappropriated or can result in misuse of your systems to attack others. Without a comprehensive approach to security, no IT system or product should be considered completely secure and no single product or security measure can be completely effective in preventing improper access. IBM systems and products are designed to be part of a regulatory compliant, comprehensive security approach, which will necessarily involve additional operational procedures, and may require other systems, products, or services to be most effective.

Important: IBM does not warrant that any systems, products, or services are immune from, or will make your enterprise immune from, the malicious or illegal conduct of any party.
