Pinned topic SVC IP replication

‏2013-12-24T13:25:46Z |

I'm trying to setup IP replication between SVC en V7000 (both systems are running 7.2.0.0).
V7000 was in beginning backend storage behind SVC.
Changed the V7000 layer from storage to replication. Removed all zoning between SVC and V7000. lsfabric does not show any records of each other.
Configured the ports with cfgportip command.

Now I want to define a ippartnership with mkippartershipcommand.

Command returns with message:
CMMVC8359E Partner already exists in candidate list. Cannot create partnership.

When I issue the command lspartnershipcandidate, nothing returns
With lspartnership only the local partner appears..

Any ideas?

    For those who are interested:

    After trying a lot of things, we did create a FC Partnership again (after adding zones between SVC and V7k). Then we deleted the FC partnership again and removed the zones out of config.

    After this we were able to create an IP Partnership!?

    So it looks like that in the first attempt, the FC partnership was kept in memory\files\buffer somewhere (although the lspartnershipcandidate did not show anything).

    We are using 1 1Gb connection.. first thing we noticed was a SVC\V7000 CPU load of 21% with setting of 1000Mb. With 100Mb "only" 8% CPU load. (no difference with 1 or more rcrelationships.

    I assume you were using management ports - right ? How did you set up ? Management port 1 for console management and port 2 for IP replication ?

    Thank You !

    On the SVC I'm using 2 ports per Node. Port 1 for management and port 2 for IP replication and iSCSI.

    On the V7K just 1 port. Management and IP Replication on the same port.

    i have de same problem, between a v3000 and a v5000, the v3000 was virtualized under the v5000, now they are in diferents san, i alredy delete all zones created, Can you recommend me something else?

    Diego,

    After reconfigure\delete the zoning again (as described in post of january), I was able to create the IP relationship. You can try to do the same. Did no further investigation.

    Hi all,

    I passed this trouble but now, i have other issue. After has did partnership between V7000 and V3700, and started relationship from volumes, I have constantly lost of connectivity " Connection to a configured remote cluster has been lost " every time in intervals 5mins 8mins 13 mins but our link respond at 1ms (in 65000000 packages 99.% success).

    What is the issue here?
