Pinned topic V7000 replication

‏2013-07-12T12:30:38Z |

Hi,

 

Presently, I have two V7000's situated at two sites (Prod & DR) and replication is working fine. We are about to add another V7000 to each site (total 2 per site) clustered together. Replication zoning at the moment consists of the following:-

A_Fabric

Zone containing DR_V7000_node1_2, DR_V7000_node2_2, Prod_V7000_node1_2, Prod_V7000_node2_2

B_Fabric

Zone containing DR_V7000_node1_1, DR_V7000_node2_1, Prod_V7000_node1_1, Prod_V7000_node2_1

 

Do I need to add the new V7000's into the replication Zone?

 

Regards

Steve

    Sorry, forgot something..

    Should I add the new V7000 IOGROUP ports into the same replication zone or create an new one for its P1 & P2 ports?

    It's probably simplest to add them into the same zone, so you have one zone per fabric providing the inter-cluster connectivity.  That should hopefully make future administration easier.

    If you're adding the new V7000's as additional control enclosures for the existing systems (i.e. extra I/O groups) then yes, you'll want to include them in your existing zoning.

    If the new control enclosures are to be used as entirely new systems then the choice is yours.  If you don't intended/expect for the new systems to interact with the existing ones then they can be kept separate.  However, if you intend to replicate different volumes to different systems then you'll want to include them all together in the same zone(s) for convenience.
