Currently i am trying to setup a “SRM in a Box” configuration.However it is not working right now.
This is what i use:
1 hp proliant dl 110 g5 with 6 gb ram and a 500 gb hd with Vista buisiness installed.
On this server i’ve installed workstation 6.5.
In Workstation i created 2 folders names site 1 and site 2. In this folders i created 3 vm’s each.
in site 1:
1 vm with windows 2003 as a domain controller and Virtual center server with 768 mb ram
1 vm with Ubuntu desktop with the Netapp simulator serving 20 gb of iscsi storage with 512 mb ram
1 vm with a working ESX 3.5 update 2 with 1024 mb ram
in site 2:
1 vm with windows 2003 as a second domain controller and Virtal center server with 768 mb ram
1 vm with Ubuntu desktop with the Netapp simulator serving 20 gb of mirrored storage with 512 mb ram
1 vm with a working ESX 3.5 update 2 install with 1024 mb ram
At this time i have managed to setup SRM to see both storage sites, but i was unable to see a mirrord lun in the SRM storage configuration. Even if i do a rescan in the SRM dialog box it won’t display a mirrord lun. I am sure that i setup the snapmirror in a good condition.
Maybe the unsupported update 2 configuration is messing up things, or the simulator is failing on this one. Soon i wil post a detailed step by step guide if i manage to setup a complete working configuration.
