Part 2: Zoning the RPAs in an MDS Series SAN


Step Action Before we can replicate volumes using RecoverPoint, we must first expose RPAs HBAs to host HBAs, as well as to storage ports involved in replication at each site. This means a lot of zoning. At the end of this exercise, in the zones database of every switch there should be several zones representing every component involved in the replication scenario, for example: a) b) c) d) e) f) g) RPAs to first Windows host RPAs to second Windows host RPAs to AIX RPAs to ESX RPAs to CLARiiON SPA port RPAs to CLARiiON SPB port RPAs to Symmetrix port

Each group will work in a different environment with different switches, hosts and storage ports so there should not be conflicts between groups. Refer to the lab environment reference document for your specific components. Note: This lab exercise shows the steps to create zones using command line. If you feel more comfortable working with the GUI, verify with your instructor if there is a host where Fabric Manager is installed. If so, feel free to use it. Just make sure you create all required zones as showed here.

Step 1

Action Telnet as admin on your first switch at local site. Verify which RPA ports are logged into this switch by viewing the flogi database. If you have two RPAs per site and two fabrics at each site, each fabric will have four RPA ports. RPAs WWN start with 50:01:24:82:xx:xx:xx:xx. Write down the RPA WWNs connected to this switch (port name column). Command Syntax: show flogi database vsan <vsan#> Command Example: mds# show flogi database vsan 20 Command Output: show flogi database without vsan #

Note that the VSAN number may be different in your assigned switches. List the existent VSANs by running show vsan. Also, there should only be one production VSAN with operational state up and an active zoneset (which will be the VSAN to use). Verify that by running show zoneset active. Important: Configuration changes on the switch should only be performed by one user at a time. Each workgroup should coordinate switch configurations to ensure only one user is changing a configuration. If for some reason RPA ports are in a different VSAN than hosts and storage ports, go ahead and move them to the same VSAN.

Step 2 Enter the configuration terminal. Command Example: mds# conf t 3

Action

TARGET Zones. Create a new zone. As per EMC Best Practices, you will add only two members to this zone. The first one is an RPA port connected to this fabric and the second one the host HBA. Command Syntax: zone name <name> vsan <VSAN#> Command Example: mds#(config) zone name rpa5_p0_win3a vsan 20

Add the pwwn of the first RPA port that is logged into this switch as member of the new zone. Use one of the WWNs saved on step 1. Command Syntax: member pwwn <RPA PWWN> Command Example: mds(config-zone)# member pwwn 50:01:24:82:00:10:42:a5

Add the pwwn of the host HBA as a member of the new zone. Command Syntax: member pwwn <HBA PWWN> Command Example: mds(config-zone)# member pwwn 10:00:00:00:c9:69:e1:34 There are many ways to find out the host HBA WWN. Choose the one you are more comfortable with. Hint, hosts already have zones created to the storage ports, looking at an existing zone may be the easiest way to discover that. Run show zoneset active to list the active zones in the database. But you can cross check that by looking direct at the host operating system.

You have created the first zone for your first host with one of the RPAs ports connected to this fabric. Exit the config-zone mode. This will return you to the config prompt. Command Example: mds(config-zone)# exit Now create additional zones using the same host HBA with all the other RPA ports in this

Step

Action fabric. At the end, there should be four similar zones (you have created the first), with two members each, being one RPA port and the host HBA. Please repeat steps 3 through 6. Give different names to the new zones. Use the WWNs saved on step 1.

INITIATOR Zones. Create another new zone. As per EMC Best Practices, you will add only two members to this zone. The first one is an RPA port connected to this fabric and the second one the storage port. Command Syntax: zone name <name> vsan <VSAN#> Command Example: mds#(config) zone name rpa5_p0_symm_fa4ba vsan 20

Add the pwwn of the first RPA port that is logged into this switch as member of the new zone. Use one of the WWNs saved on step 1. Command Syntax: member pwwn <RPA PWWN> Command Example: mds(config-zone)# member pwwn 50:01:24:82:00:10:42:a5

Add the pwwn of the storage port as a member of the new zone. Command Syntax: member pwwn <Storage Port PWWN> Command Example: mds(config-zone)# member pwwn 50:06:04:8a:cc:d2:53:81 Verify which storage port to use in the lab environment reference document. If you are working in a CLARiiON environment zone all CLARiiON SP ports with all RPA ports in one single zone. There are many ways to find out the storage port WWN. Choose the one you are more comfortable with. Hint, storage ports already have zones created on this switch (zoned with hosts), looking at an existing zone may be the easiest way to discover that. Run show zoneset active to list the active zones in the database.

Step the required zone.

Action

Exit the config-zone mode. This will return you to the config prompt Command Example: mds(config-zone)# exit Now create additional zones using the same storage port with all the other RPA ports in this fabric. At the end, there should be four (one if CLARiiON in place) similar zones (you have created the first), with two members each, being one RPA port and the storage port. Please repeat steps 7 through 10. Give different names to the new zones. Use the WWNs saved on step 1. 11 Display the name of the active zoneset for your VSAN. You will need this name to add the new zones to the zoneset and activate the zoning changes in the next several steps. Add do in front of the command if you are in the config prompt level. Command Syntax: do show zoneset active vsan <VSAN#> Command Example: mds(config)# do show zoneset active vsan 20 Output: show zoneset active s1-mdsa-14-80# show zoneset active zoneset name bos1_rpa_BE_zoneset vsan 10 zone name s1_sun1_hba1_dmx155_fa16cA vsan 10 pwwn 10:00:00:00:c9:5e:af:d1 pwwn 50:06:04:8a:d5:f0:f8:cf zone name s1_rpa_all_dmx155_fa16cA vsan 10 pwwn 50:06:04:8a:d5:f0:f8:cf pwwn 50:01:24:82:01:30:a7:a4 pwwn 50:01:24:82:00:10:25:a5 pwwn 50:01:24:82:00:10:aa:a4 pwwn 50:01:24:82:01:30:63:a0

Note that this lab exercise only showed the steps to create zones from the RPAs to a host and zones from the RPAs to the storage port. You might need to create additional zones for the other hosts and storage ports. Refer to the lab environment reference document. 13 Exit the config-zoneset mode. This will return you to the config prompt. Command Example: mds(config-zoneset)# exit 14 Activate the zoneset. Command Syntax: zoneset activate name <Zoneset Name> vsan <VSAN#> Command Example: mds(config)# zoneset activate name prod1_H2S_fabA vsan 20

15

Exit the config mode. This will return you to the switch prompt. Command Example: mds(config)# exit

16

Display the modified active zoneset for your VSAN. You should see your new zones there. Command Syntax:

Step

Action show zoneset active vsan <VSAN#> Command Example: mds# show zoneset active vsan 20

17

Copy the running configuration to the startup configuration so changes are persistent across reboots. Command Syntax: mds# copy running-config startup-config Command Example: mds# copy run start

You have now taken care of zoning on the first fabric at local site. Telnet into your second switch at local site and do the same thing (steps 1 to 17) obviously the zone names and the zoneset name may be different there. 18 Check the zoning configuration from the RPAs. Log into each RPA as the boxmgmt user. From the Main menu select Diagnostics > Fibre Channel diagnostics > Detect Fibre Channel targets. Each ports should display the WWNs of the host HBA ports and storage ports. Important: When you are done with zoning at local site (both switches), move on to remote site. Telnet into your first and second switches at remote site and do the same thing (steps 1 to 18) obviously the zone names and the zoneset name may be different there.

Part 3: Zoning the RPAs in a Brocade SAN


Step Action Before we can replicate volumes using RecoverPoint, we must first expose RPAs HBAs to host HBAs, as well as to storage ports involved in replication at each site. This means a lot of zoning. At the end of this exercise, in the zones database of every switch there should be several zones representing every component involved in the replication scenario, for example: h) i) j) k) l) m) n) RPAs to first Windows host RPAs to second Windows host RPAs to AIX RPAs to ESX RPAs to CLARiiON SPA port RPAs to CLARiiON SPB port RPAs to Symmetrix port

Each group will work in a different environment with different switches, hosts and storage ports so there should not be conflicts between groups. Refer to the lab environment reference document for your specific components. Note: This lab exercise shows the steps to create zones using command line. If you feel more comfortable working with the GUI (WebTools) feel free to use it. Just make sure you create all required zones as showed here.

Step 3

Action TARGET Zones. Create a new zone. As per EMC Best Practices, you will add only two members to this zone. The first RPA port connected to this fabric and the host HBA. Use one of the RPA WWNs saved on step 1. Command Syntax: zonecreate zone name, RPA3 PWWN 0; Host HBA PWWN Command Example: zonecreate "rpa3_p0_win2a", "50:01:24:82:01:30:75:a4; 10:00:00:00:c9:69:e6:92" There are many ways to find out the host HBA WWN. Choose the one you are more comfortable with. Hint, hosts already have zones created to the storage ports, looking at an existing zone may be the easiest way to discover that. Run cfgactvshow to list the active zones in the configuration. But you can cross check that by looking direct at the host operating system. Now create additional zones using the same host HBA with all the other RPA ports in this fabric. At the end, there should be four similar zones (you have created the first), with two members each, being one RPA port and the host HBA. Please repeat step 3. Give different names to the new zones. Use the RPA WWNs saved on step 1. INITIATOR Zones. Create another new zone. As per EMC Best Practices, you will add only two members to this zone. The first one is an RPA port connected to this fabric and the second one the first storage port. If you are working on a CLARiiON environment zone all CLARiiON SP ports in this fabric with all RPA ports in one single zone. Command Syntax: zonecreate zone name, RPA3 PWWN 0; Storage Port PWWN a Command Example: zonecreate "rpa3_p0_spA2", "50:01:24:82:01:30:75:a4; 50:06:01:62:3c:e0:05:91" Verify which storage port (s) to use in the lab environment reference document. There are many ways to find out the storage port WWN. Choose the one you are more comfortable with. Hint, storage ports already have zones created on this switch (zoned with hosts), looking at an existing zone may be the easiest way to discover that. Run cfgactvshow to list the active zones in the configuration. At the end, in a CLARiiON environment there should be one zone with all RPA ports and all storage ports as members. Or, in a DMX environment, four zones with two members each, being one RPA port and one of the storage ports.

Action Please repeat step 4. Give different names to the new zones. Use the RPA WWNs saved on step 1. Add the new zones to the active configuration and enable the new configuration. Command Syntax: cfgadd configuration name, zone name; zone name; ... cfgenable configuration name Command Syntax: cfgadd s1_7600a_cfg, rpa3_p0_win2a; rpa3_p2_win2a; rpa4_p0_win2a; rpa4_p2_win2a; rpa3_p0_spA2; rpa3_p0_spB3; rpa3_p2_spA2; rpa3_p2_spB3; rpa4_p0_spA2; rpa4_p0_spB3; rpa4_p2_spA2; rpa4_p2_spB3 cfgenable s1_7600a_cfg

Display the active configuration. You should see your new zones in the active configuration. Command Example: Cfgactvshow Note that this lab exercise only showed the steps to create zones from the RPAs to a host and zones from the RPAs to the storage ports. You might need to create additional zones for the other hosts and storage ports (if present). Refer to the lab environment reference document. You have now taken care of zoning on the first fabric at local site. Telnet into your second switch (S1-brocade2_b, S1-brocade4_b etc) at local site and do the same thing (steps 1 to 6) obviously the zone names and the configuration name may be different there.

Check the zoning configuration from the RPAs. Log into each RPA as the boxmgmt user. From the Main menu select Diagnostics > Fibre Channel diagnostics > Detect Fibre Channel targets. Each ports should display the WWNs of the host HBA ports and storage ports. Important: When you are done with zoning at local site (both switches), move on to remote site. Telnet into your first and second switches at remote site and do the same thing (steps 1 to 7) obviously the zone names and the configuration name may be different there.

Part 4: LUN Masking for the RPA Symmetrix


Step 1 Action Before we can replicate volumes using RecoverPoint, we must first present the repository, journals, and host volumes (replica) to all RPAs at each site. This means a lot of masking. Refer to the lab environment reference guide for repository, journals, and host volumes (replica) information assigned to you RPA cluster group. You will also need information about the storage ports. Finally, WWNs of the RPA ports will be used in this exercise. You can use the syminq or inq command on your hosts to identify the host data (replica) volumes that must be seen by the RPA ports. You will need the Symmetrix device numbers to verify that these volumes are seen by the RPAs. Command Example: syminq or inq Sample Output: inq

Action Register the RPA ports on the Connectivity Status Window. In the Enterprise Storage dialog box, navigate to the icon for the storage system whose RPA ports you want to register. Right-click it and select Connectivity Status to open the Connectivity Status dialog box. In Initiator Records, select the HBA that you want to register, and then click Register to open the Register Initiator Record dialog box. The selected HBA must have a No value in the Registered column to enable the Register button. There should be 16 of these entries (which are logged in). These represent 4 HBAs from each RPA going to 2 CLARiiON SP ports. These entries were created after you finished your zones. Connectivity Status Window

Note: If RPA ports are not listed check your zones on both fabrics and fix any issue they might have. Note: If RPA ports are not logged in, this is a known and possible issue with CLARiiON arrays. If no I/O happens against the SP ports the initiator will not log in them. To fix this: SSH into each RPA as the boxmgmt user. From the Main menu select Diagnostics > Fibre Channel diagnostics > Detect Fibre Channel LUNs. Running this should make the RPAs to log into the CLARiiON SP ports. Therefore, the initiators logged in status should change to Yes.

When prompted, enter y to continue the installation. Correct any errors detected by SAN diagnostics. Note: The system conducts a series of automatic tests that are designed to identify a variety of the most common problems regarding the host configuration in the SAN environment on which RecoverPoint is being installed. It is desirable to identify these problems before installing the kdriver on the host. Upon completion of these tests, a report confirms successful completion of the SAN diagnostics (i.e., no errors or warnings), or details the errors or potential errors (i.e., warnings) detected in the host configuration on the SAN.

When prompted, designate the directory in which to store log files and designate the maximum log file size (default is 500 MB). The default destination folder is /kdriver/log. Setting Log Directory and Size
Do you want to proceed with the installation (y/q)? y Please enter the log files directory (q-quit)? [/kdriver/log] Please enter the log files maximum size [MB] (q-quit)? [500] kconfigure success installation of <kdriver> was successful.

Step 8

Action When the installation completes, reboot the host. Command Example: reboot -- -r Note: From this point, the kdriver is started automatically any time the system is rebooted. To manually start or stop the kdriver use the /etc/init.d/kdrv start and /etc/init.d/kdrv stop commands. The /etc/init.d/kdrv status command returns the current status of the driver (UP or DOWN).

There are several commands that can be run on Solaris to verify that the splitter driver is installed and running properly. The pkginfo command displays information about software packages that have been installed on the system. Look at the STATUS field to verify the driver was installed. Command Example: pkginfo l kdriver Sample Output: pkginfo l kdriver
slsunl /software/solaris/kdriver pkginfo l kdriver PKGINST: kdriver NAME: kdriver CATEGORY: application ARCH: sparc VERSION: 3.3 BASEDIR: / PSTAMP: sol15920080219184442 INSTDATE: Sep 2 2009 10:43 STATUS: completely installed FILES: 118 installed pathnames 13 directories 48 executables 83192 blocks used (approx)

Step 6

Action Umount the replication volumes at the remote site (site 2) using kutils. The kutils utility was installed automatically when you installed RecoverPoint host splitter (kdriver) on your hosts . It is necessary to be in the correct path (default C:\Program Files\KDriver\kutils) to run kutils commands. A return message (success or failure) is always expected. The kutils utility is case sensitive. Command Example To unmount a device: C:\program files\kdriver\kutils> kutils umount E: Unmounting drive E:... unmounted from "\\?\Volume{33b4a391-26af-11d9-b57b-505054503030}\" This command is available only on hosts running Windows. For Unix host use its native umount utility. For Windows 2003 and later, use the mountvol.exe, which comes with the Windows operating system. Command Example To umount a device: C:\>mountvol E: /p

A very helpful option is to set mountvol to automatic enable mounting of new volumes. For that, use the following option: C:\>mountvol /E Now, only run rescan disks in disk management every time a volume needs to be mounted.

Action If mountvol was previously set to automatic enable mounting of new devices this procedure might not be needed. Just run rescan disks in disk management. Command Example To mount a device: C:\program files\kdriver\kutils> kutils mount E: Mounting drive E: as "\\?\Volume{33b4a391-26af-11d9-b57b-505054503030}\"... Mounted. This command is available only on hosts running Windows. For Unix hosts use its native mount utility. For Windows 2003 and later, use the mountvol.exe, which comes with the Windows operating system. Command Example To mount a device: C:\> mountvol E: \\?\Volume{4b3d346c-c4cd-11dd-b127001aa0a858f4}\ Type mountvol alone to get a list of the possible volume names. Copy and paste the volume name into the command line after the driver letter of the volume you are trying to mount.

19

Access the volume on the remote server (site 2) and verify that it has the same data you copied into the production server volume (site 1). This should be a proof of concept. Replication is working! If not, you probably missed a step. Go back and check: a) b) c) d) Local and Remote servers have host splitter driver installed and running. Local and remote volumes have been attached to splitters. You have copied data to the production volume (site 1). You have flushed file system of production server volume (site 1) before creating the bookmark. e) You are using the correct volumes! Make sure that the volumes within your consistency group are the ones you are copying data to, mounting and umounting.

Part 2: Provisioning RPAs


Step 1 Action For all nodes within the RPA cluster, the CX must be able to perform both reading and writing to the RPAs. Zone all RPA ports with all CX SP ports. Ports to exclude in zoning are any ports involved in a MirrorView configuration. Zoning steps are not shown here. It is required to create zones containing all RPA ports connected to all CX ports on the array per fabric. If there are two CX ports per fabric, then you need to create two zones, one in each frabric.
Zone: RPAs12_CX_A0_B1 50:01:24:82:00:93:f7:1c 50:01:24:82:01:aa:2a:50 50:01:24:82:00:93:7b:21 50:01:24:82:01:aa:dc:4d 50:06:01:60:3c:e0:0d:a1 50:06:01:69:3c:e0:0d:a1

Step 3

Action Providing LUN masking for the RPAs can be done in a matter of different ways. The minimum configuration is the following: The RPAs must have at least one LUN presented to them/the cluster. The RPAs must be added to storage groups or have LUNs from storage groups presented to the RPA Storage Group in order for the RPAs to replicate these LUNs. In our example, we show creating a SG for the RPAs and adding LUNs which is then protected with RecoverPoint. First, create a SG for RecoverPoint, provide one LUN and connect the RPAs to this SG.

Lab Exercise 8: Migrate to Cisco SANTap Fabric Splitter


Purpose:
Migrate from kdriver to fabric splitting with SANTap. This procedure must be done while the host still sees and has access to storage. Hosts in this environment have dual paths to storage. Additionally, they have multi-pathing software (e.g. PowerPath). With this type of environment, this procedure can theoretically be done online with no interruption to existing Host-to-Storage (H2S) connectivity.

Tasks:

In this lab, you perform the following tasks: Inventory the environment and analyze current state and what needs to be upgraded. Qualify the environment. Stop consistency groups currently replicating and detach volumes from kdriver splitter. Stop kdriver on the host- either remove or change configuration so that it does not start upon reboot. Take necessary backups of the SAN environment. Take one path down to make changes to the configuration and deploy SANTap. Disable IVR (if applicable to your environment) Make necessary VSAN changes Deploy SANTap Bring fabric back online, verify that host still has access to storage Repeat configuration changes/deployment on all switches in the environment Once SAN environment configuration changes are complete restore consistency groups with fabric splitter

Part 1: Prepare to Migrate to SANTap


Before implementing SANTap in a customer environment you must take steps to qualify the environment and plan the implementation (or kdriver migration). General Prerequisites (from the SANTap Deployment Tech Notes): To configure RecoverPoint to take advantage of SANTap services, the following is required:

Notes: Cisco Multilayer Director Switch with Storage Service Module and SANTap services installed at the primary site. Cisco may decommission some of these models or replace them with others. Refer to Ciscos publications for an updated product list. Hot migration to SANTap without application downtime is possible only if the system contains at least two SANTap switches supporting SANTap services. License for SANTap service for each Storage Services Module (SSM). Port 23 between RPAs and the SAN switches must be available. RecoverPoint software loaded on all RecoverPoint appliances (RPAs). All relevant hosts, storage ports, and RPA ports must be connected via Fibre Channel to the same VSAN. In a multi-switch environment, all connections must be made to the same VSAN on every switch. Hosts and RPAs must be zoned so that each can see the storage it must access. Zoning must be planned according to the business needs of the organization. RPAs can be zoned only after the RecoverPoint software has been loaded. Reference the RecoverPoint Release Notes and Support Matrix to verify code versions and reference the most current TS Practitioners Guide for SANTap implementation considerations.

Step 1

Action Calculate the ITL count for your lab configuration for a single SSM. CVT ITLs = 1 per RPA node Discovery ITLs = 26 HBA RPA How many RPA nodes are in the cluster on this site? _______ CVT ITLs: __________ Discovery ITLs:__________ How many LUNs visible to your host will be replicated using SANTap? ________ How many HBAs from this host are attached to the switch? ___________ How many DVTs will be created? ________ Host ITLs: _____________ (#DVTs x #LUNs x #HBAs) Total ITLs: _____________ (Host ITLs + CVT ITLs + Discovery ITLs) Note: The DVT is correlated to the storage port where the LUNs are presented. In this dual path environment, the LUNs are visible via two different target ports. This will result is two DVTs. However, because this environment is a mirrored fabric the DVTs will be created on different SSMs. The ITL calculation is performed per SSM. BONUS: If your host is an IBM AIX system (requiring SCSI reservations) what would your ITL count be?

EXTREME BONUS: If your host is part of a two node cluster and all LUNs require reservations what would your ITL count be?

Step 6

Action Your objective is to migrate from kdriver to SANTap in a live environment. To do this, work on one path at a time to ensure the host maintains access to the devices via the alternate path. From your host, use PowerPath commands to disable the HBA connected to the switch you are about to modify. Use the powermt display command to view status and identify the HBA #. Note: If this is your second switch on this site, perform the next step first to re-enable the path that was previously disabled (if not already done). This command is not available on Windows hosts so use PowerPath Monitor on Windows to disable the hba. Command Syntax powermt disable hba=<###> Command Example powermt disable hba=2304 Disable the Path

Part 2: Deploying SANTap


Step 1 Action Log in to the switch as admin and copy the running configuration to an ftp site. Command Syntax: copy run ftp://root@<IP Address>/<directory>/<filename> Important: Configuration changes on the switch should only be performed by one user at a time. Each workgroup should coordinate switch configurations to ensure only one user is changing a configuration. Before changing the switch configuration, each group should backup the existing configuration on their first assigned switch. In a customer environment you would perform a backup of all switches in the environment. 2 Configure the SSM for SANTap. Log into the switch as admin and use the show module command to identify the slot number of the SSM module. You will need this number to perform several of the SANTap configuration commands. This number may be different on each switch in your environment. Command Example: mds# show module Show Module Output Example

At the switch prompt, enter the configuration terminal using the conf t command. Then, enable the SANTap service on the SSM module using the ssm enable feature command. Command Syntax: mds(config)# ssm enable feature santap module <SSM#> Note: This step is performed once per switch. You do not need to run this step if SANTap was previously enabled by another lab group (see example below). Failed Message When SANTap is Currently Enabled Command Example

Note: You will need a front end VSAN for your host initiator (HBA) and a backend VSAN for your storage target and RPA entities. A VSAN containing the host, RPAs, and storage target should already exist from your kdriver implementation. Keep this VSAN and use it as your back end VSAN. You will need to create a new VSAN for the front end VSAN. You will create a DVT for the front end VSAN and move the host port from the back end to the front end VSAN. Follow the steps below.

Note: In later steps you will create the DVT and the host to storage zone in the front end VSAN and move the host port into the front end VSAN. 6 From the config prompt, create the CVT in the back end VSAN. You will need to designate the SSM module number, your back end VSAN number, and designate a name for the CVT. Important: The CVT must be created in the back end VSAN. Do not create the CVT in the front end VSAN that you created in the previous step. Command Syntax: santap module <SSM#> appl-vsan <BackEndVSAN#> cvt-name <CVT Name> Command Example: mds(config)# santap module 2 appl-vsan 5 cvt-name group_5_CVT

Step 7

Action Verify the CVT was created correctly. You should see 10 Cisco PWWNs. Under the Type column you should see 9 of the PWWNs listed as init (initiator) and 1 listed as target. In a later step you will need to add the CVT to a zone. You must include all 10 of the PWWNs. Command Syntax: <do> show fcns database vsan <BackEndVSAN#> Note: Add do to the front of a show command if you are at the config prompt. Command Example mds(config)# do show fcns database vsan 5 Finding the CVT in the Back End VSAN Output Example

Set Persistent FCIDs (IBM AIX and HP-UX) Setting persistent FCIDs must be done for IBM AIX and HP-UX. However, you can perform these steps for any platform. If your lab environment does not contain IBM AIX or HP-UX you may skip this section and proceed with the next section Create the DVT.

Step 11

Action From the config prompt, enable the persistent FCID. Command Syntax: mds(config)# fcdomain fcid persistent vsan <FrontEndVSAN#> Command Example: mds(config)# fcdomain fcid persistent vsan 15 Note: The switch should respond: FCID persistent feature is enabled

12

From the config-fcid-db prompt, make the FCID of the storage target port the same in the front end VSAN as in the back end VSAN. Use the show fcns database command to identify the Storage target port FCID. Displaying the Storage Port FCID

Command Syntax: mds(config)# fcdomain fcid database mds(config-fcid-db)# vsan <FrontEndVSAN#> wwn <StoragePort WWN> fcid <StoragePort FCID> dynamic Command Example: mds(config)# fcdomain fcid database mds(config-fcid-db)# vsan 15 wwn 50:06:04:8a:ca:fe:64:13 fcid 0xa100c dynamic 13 Copy the running configuration to the startup configuration.

Lab Guide

Step 14

Action Create the DVT. Each physical storage target port requires a corresponding DVT. The DVT and the storage target port will have the same PWWN (target-pwwn). The DVT resides in the front end VSAN (dvt-vsan) and the physical storage target port resides in the back end VSAN (target-vsan). In the lab configuration, the physical storage target port should already be in the back end VSAN. Creating the DVT is performed from the config prompt. If you are not already at the config prompt enter the configuration terminal using the conf t command. Command Syntax: santap module <SSM#> dvt target-pwwn <StoragePort WWN> target-vsan <BackEndVSAN#> dvt-name <name> dvt-vsan <FrontEndVSAN#> lun-size-handling 1 Command Example: mds(config)# santap module 2 dvt target-pwwn 50:06:01:60:10:60:1a:9c target-vsan 5 dvt-name Group_5_DVT dvt-vsan 15 lun-size-handling 1

15

Verify that the DVT was created properly. The command to display the DVT will show all DVTs configured. You may need to scroll through the output to find your DVT. Command Syntax: <do> show santap module <SSN#> dvt Command Example mds(config)# do show santap module 2 dvt Display the DVTs Configured in the SSM Output Example

Step 16

Action Copy the running configuration to the startup configuration. Command Example: From the switch prompt run: copy run start From the config prompt run: do copy run start Creating the Front End Zoneset and Moving the Host Port The VSAN you designated as the back-end VSAN should already contain a Host to Storage zone with the PWWNs of the host initiator port(s) and the storage target port(s). This zone must be recreated in the front end VSAN using the same PWWNs. The DVT and the physical storage target port have the same PWWN. The DVT is in the front end VSAN and the physical target is in the back end VSAN. The physical host initiator and the virtual host initiator (VI) also have the same PWWN. The physical host initiator will reside in the front end VSAN and the VI will be automatically created in the back end VSAN. Currently, the physical host initiator is logged into the back end VSAN. You will move it to the front end in a later step.

17

Display the active zone set in the back end VSAN. This will allow you to verify the PWWNs in the Host to Storage zone. You will need these PWWNs for the next step. Command Syntax: <do> show zoneset active vsan <BackEndVSAN#> Command Example mds(config)# do show zoneset active vsan 5 Host to Storage Zone in Back End VSAN Output Example

Step 18

Action From the config prompt, create a new front end zone set and a Host to Storage zone that matches the back end Host to Storage zone. Note: There are several ways to accomplish this task. The screen shot below provides an example of creating the zone set. The back end zone could also be copied to the front end using the command line or Fabric Manager GUI. Command Syntax: mds(config)# zoneset name <name> vsan <FrontEndVSAN#> mds(config-zoneset)# zone name <name> mds(config-zoneset-zone)# member pwwn <Storage Target PWWN> mds(config-zoneset-zone)# member pwwn <Host Initiator PWWN> mds(config-zoneset-zone)# exit mds(config-zoneset)#zoneset activate name <name> vsan <FrontEndVSAN#> Creating and Activating the New Front End Zone Set Command Examples

19

Copy the running configuration to the startup configuration. Command Example: From the switch prompt run: copy run start From the config prompt run: do copy run start

Lab Guide

Step 20

Action Use the show flogi database command to identify the interface number for the host initiator port in the back end VSAN. You will need this number to move the host initiator to the front end VSAN. Command Syntax: <do> show flogi database vsan <BackEndVSAN#> Command Example mds# show flogi database vsan 5 Show Flogi Database Output Example

21

From the config-vsan-db prompt, move the host initiator port (referencing the interface ID) from the back end VSAN to the front end VSAN. You only need to reference the front end VSAN number in the command. You do not need to reference the back end VSAN because the interface ID is unique. Command Syntax: mds# config t mds(config)# vsan database mds(config-vsan-db)# vsan <FrontEndVSAN#> interface <interfaceID> switch(config-vsan-db)# exit Moving the Host Interface ID to the Front End VSAN Command Examples

Copyright 2010 EMC Corporation. All Rights Reserved.

Version 3.3

Page 140 of 222

RecoverPoint Implementation

Lab Guide

Step

Action Once the host initiator port is moved to the front end VSAN, it should log into the DVT resulting in the virtual initiator being created in the back end VSAN. At this time, the host should be able to see its assigned devices. You can use inq or syminq on your host to verify the devices are visible. The following steps will run through a series of check to verify (from the switch perspective) that the configuration is correct to this point.

22

Verify that the host initiator port interface ID is listed in the flogi database for your front end VSAN. Command Syntax: show flogi database vsan <FrontEndVSAN#> Show Flogi Database Command Example

23

Display the active zoneset in your front end VSAN. You should see that the host initiator PWWN has a * fcid. This indicates that the port has logged in and is active. Command Syntax: show zoneset active vsan <FrontEndVSAN#> Command Example: mds# show zoneset active vsan 15 Display Active Zoneset in Front End VSAN Output Example

Copyright 2010 EMC Corporation. All Rights Reserved.

Version 3.3

Page 141 of 222

RecoverPoint Implementation

Lab Guide

Step 24

Action Display the active zoneset in your back end VSAN. The VI PWWN should also have a * fcid. Note: The FCID numbers should match if you configured persistent FCIDs on the switch. Command Syntax: show zoneset active vsan <BackEndVSAN#> Command Example: mds# show zoneset active vsan 5 Display Active Zoneset in Back End VSAN Output Example

25

If the host initiator has successfully logged into the DVT and the VI was created in the back end VSAN, the DVT LUNs should now be visible. Viewing the DVT LUNs is similar to viewing the DVTs. The command will show all the DVT LUNs on the SSM module. You will have to scroll through the output to find your LUNs. Command Syntax: <do> show santap module <SSM#> dvtlun Command Example: mds# show santap module 2 dvtlun DVT LUN Output Example

Part 3: Add RecoverPoint to the SANTap Environment


Step 1 Action In a previous lab section, you created the CVT and displayed the ten CVT WWNs (show fcns database vsan <BackEndVSAN#>). To add the RecoverPoint Appliances to the SANTap configuration, create a zone in the back end VSAN that contains the ten (10) CVT WWNs and all RPAs port WWNs. Note: When creating the zone, you must add the CVT WWNs one line at a time. You will issue the command member pwwn 10 times for the CVT and once for each RPA port that is connected to this switch. Please see step 1a for commands reference.

Step 2

Action From the config prompt, create another new zone in the back end VSAN that contains all RPAs port WWNs and the physical storage target port WWNs. Note: If you have migrated from a kdriver environment to a SANTap environment, this zone should already exist. You do not need to create another zone. Command Syntax: mds(config)# zoneset name <name> vsan mds(config-zoneset)# zone name <name> mds(config-zoneset-zone)# member pwwn mds(config-zoneset-zone)# member pwwn mds(config-zoneset-zone)# member pwwn mds(config-zoneset-zone)# member pwwn mds(config-zoneset-zone)# member pwwn mds(config-zoneset-zone)# exit mds(config-zoneset)# zoneset activate <BackEndVSAN#> <BackEndVSAN#> <RPA5 PWWNa> <RPA5 PWWNb> <RPA6 PWWNa> <RPA6 PWWNb> <Storage Target PWWN> name <name> vsan

Step 4

Action The CVT should be visible in the RecoverPoint Management Application as a valid splitter. Log into the management application, click on Splitters then click on the Rescan icon. Once the rescan is complete, click on the Add Splitter icon. The CVT should be displayed as a splitter. Select it and click OK to add the splitter. Note: If the CVT splitter is not visible, recheck the zoning created in the previous two steps. The next step (creating AVT zones) is dependant on the CVT being added as a splitter in this step. Do not proceed to the next step if you cannot complete this step. Adding the CVT Splitter - Example

Note: Perform this setup on all switches in the SANTap configuration. When running a CRR configuration with mirrored fabrics, you will have four CVT splitters when finished (two per site).

RecoverPoint Implementation

Lab Guide

Step 5

Action RecoverPoint Appliance Virtual Targets (AVTs) mask the identity of the appliance (RPA), allowing it to appear as the host. This masking is necessary to allow the RPA to overcome SCSI reservation of storage ports by the hosts and to get the same view of the SAN that the Host has. From the RPA admin prompt, create the AVT zone for your RPA cluster. SSH into the primary RPA node as admin and run the config_santap_avt_zones command. When prompted enter the user name for the Cisco switch (admin) and the password for that user. When prompted to Enter switches you can type in the full name of the CVT (including Cisco ) or press enter (once) to select all visible CVTs. AVT Zone Creation Command Example

Note: The RPA uses telnet to access the switch. In a customer environment, telnet may be disabled. Have it enabled for the purpose of building the AVT zone and it can be disabled again once you have finished.

Version 3.3

Page 147 of 222

RecoverPoint Implementation

Lab Guide

Step 6

Action A zone with all required AVTs will be created in your back end VSAN but it will not be in the active zoneset. Manually add the zone to the active zoneset. The zone name is: RPA-AVT-<CVT WWN> To display this zone you must view all zones in the VSAN (not just the active zoneset). Command Syntax: show zone vsan <BackEndVSAN#> Command Example: mds# show zone vsan 5

Note: The show zone command will display all the zones in the VSAN, including those in the active zoneset. You will need to scroll through the output to find the AVT zone. Be aware that the Cisco command line recognizes abbreviated commands. If you enter show zones (plural) rather than show zone (singular) it interprets the command as show zoneset which results in your AVT zones not being displayed. 7 From the config prompt: a) add the AVT zone to the active zoneset b) activate the zoneset Command Syntax: mds(config)# zoneset name <name> vsan <BackEndVSAN#> mds(config-zoneset)# member <AVT zone name> mds(config-zoneset)# zoneset activate name <name> vsan <BackEndVSAN#> Command Examples: mds(config)# zoneset name Group_5_BackEnd30 vsan 5 mds(config-zoneset)# member RPA-AVT-2584000dec18d4c2 mds(config-zoneset)# zoneset activate name Group_5_BackEnd30 vsan 5 8 Copy the running configuration to the startup configuration.

Part 3: Configure Zoning Frame Redirect

The procedure in this section is for Frame Redirect mode. If you are going to implement Multi-VI mode, download the EMC RecoverPoint Deploying with Connectrix AP-7600B and PB-48K-AP418 Technical Notes from Powerlink.

Step Action 1 To configure Frame Redirect, set up zoning for the RPAs. Reference the table below for the list of zones needed for Frame Redirect. In this exercise, you are migrating from a host splitter environment. Delete the RPA ports to Host initiator zone when you are finished implementing Frame Redirect.

RecoverPoint Implementation

Lab Guide

Step Action 2 Run the cfgacvtshow command to display the current effective configuration on your switch and verify which zones are part of the configuration. Your zones should be configured for host based splitting. The existing RPA ports to storage target zone is the RPA Initiator Zone. If this zone(s) does not exist, create it now. Make note of the configuration name, you need this information to add zones to the configuration in a later step.

Create the RPA Target Zone and RPA Front-end Zone. On the BP, run the script: /thirdparty/recoverpoint/install/zoning_script.sh Example Running Zoning Script
BFOS:root> /thirdparty/recoverpoint/install/zoning_script.sh BFOS:root>

The script does the following: Creates the RPA target zone (hostname_FR_RPA_Target_Zone) Creates the RPA front-end zone (hostname_RPA_Front_End_Zone) Adds the System VI, and all possible virtual initiator WWNs to the RPA target zone Adds all appliance virtual targets (AVTs) to the RPA front-end zone Adds RPA ports to both zones

Step 4 Add the new zones to the configuration.

Action

Command Syntax: cfgadd configuration name, zone name; zone name Adding Zones

Enable the configuration. This makes the splitter visible in the RecoverPoint Management Application which you add in the next step. Command Syntax: cfgenable configuration name Enabling Configuration

Reboot the Blade Processor. Log in to the Blade Processor and run the reboot command.

BFOS:root> reboot BFOS:root>

When the Blade Processor comes up, the RecoverPoint splitter agent should be activated. You can verify that it is activated by using the kdrv status command.

Step Action 10 Add frame redirection bindings by selecting Brocade Bindings.

This command creates the virtual initiators and virtual targets that correspond to the host initiators and storage targets involved, and that enable the frame redirect mechanism to direct the data frames from the initiator to the target through the virtual entities. Each initiator should be bound to all targets that expose protected LUNs to it. You can bind multiple initiators to multiple targets. 11 Select the PWWN of the physical storage targets your host initiators must see. Click Bind Initiators.

Step Action 14 If you are deploying RecoverPoint non-disruptively, enable the paths that you disabled at the beginning of this exercise. Verify that host initiators can see the virtual targets and the correct LUNs in them, and that I/Os continue properly. Verify that all paths over all switches are working. 15 Currently, there should be one zone in your active configuration which is no longer needed. The zone containing the RPA ports and the host initiator PWWN (which was used for the host based splitter configuration) should be removed from the active configuration. Command Syntax: cfgremove configuration name, zone name cfgenable configuration name 16 17 Repeat these steps in the second fabric as well as at site 2 (both fabrics). After completing the SAS implementation on all four switches, highlight a splitter and open Splitter Properties. Attach the replication volumes to all splitters (on each site). From the RecoverPoint Management Application, re-enable the consistency group. Monitor the consistency group to ensure replication resumes normally. Enable Group

Part 1: Working with Deployment Manager Prepare for Upgrade Wizard


Step 1 Action Upgrading RecoverPoint Appliance (RPA) software to the latest RecoverPoint release is recommended to gain the latest RecoverPoint features and functionalities. Some upgrades are non-disruptive (do not cause application or replication downtime, nor journal loss) and some upgrades are disruptive. Information on the various upgrade paths, as well as links to the relevant procedures, are presented in Upgrade matrix to the latest RecoverPoint releases on EMC RecoverPoint Deployment Manager Product Guide. Upgrades are performed by EMC Customer Service and authorized partners and require opening an Update Service Request and initiating the RecoverPoint Change Control Activity (CCA) process, which is required for all upgrades. 2 Introduction Upgrading to the latest releases requires using the RecoverPoint Deployment Manager, which contains the Upgrade RPAs Wizard, a Java-based GUI wizard that allows you to perform a non-disruptive upgrade of RPA software from 3.1 and later to the latest releases. The Wizard is composed of two wizards Prepare for Upgrade and Apply/Resume Upgrade. The Prepare for Upgrade wizard guides you through the verification of RecoverPoint credentials and downloads ISO files to all RPAs in the environment. The Apply/Resume Upgrade wizard applies the upgrade to all RPAs. While the upgrade procedure does not upgrade RecoverPoint splitters (KDriver, CLARiiON, SANTap, and Brocade), a RecoverPoint 3.3 and later environment can simultaneously support splitters from releases 3.1 and later. However, EMC advises you to upgrade splitters to the same RecoverPoint release to gain the latest splitter functionalities and features. 3 For the sake of lab activities you only will run the Prepare for Upgrade wizard. The Apply/Resume Upgrade wizard cannot be performed because the RPAs in the lab already have the latest code version running on them.

Step 1 Action If your current status is all OK in the GUI, you can create a status change by detaching one of the RPAs from the cluster. Connect to one of your RPAs using ssh (or putty) as boxmgmt. Example: ssh boxmgmt@10.127.115.146 2 From the Main Menu, select Cluster Operations > Detach From Cluster and confirm y when prompted. Detaching RPA From Cluster
** Main Menu ** [1] Installation [2] Setup [3] Diagnostics [4] Cluster operations [5] Shutdown / Reboot operations [Q] Quit pod1 RPA1: 4 ** Cluster operations ** [1] Attach to cluster [2] Detach from cluster [B] Back [Q] Quit pod1 RPA1: 2 Detach from cluster succeeded.

Step 3

Action The GUI will list unknowns as a ? and errors as !. If you detach an RPA from the cluster, the status for the RPA should change to Error. Viewing these preliminary error messages determines what to investigate further (system configuration, logs, SAN Configuration, Networking, repository configuration, etc). Status Overview

After review status information provided by the GUI, examine the system logs by highlighting Logs. Logs Tab

Highlight an error message and click the Log Event Properties icon to view more details. Log Details

Step 6

Action Utilize the Filter Log feature to examine an issue more closely. This allows you to determine if there have been a series of events related to this component. Set the Topics to be reduced to just RPA, the Scope to Detailed, the Level to Error and a text filter of RPA 1. Modifying Logs View

View the Logs tab after changing the log filter. Filtered Log View

If you detached the RPA from the cluster in Step 1, connect to the RPA and attach it to the cluster. Attaching the RPA to the cluster reboots the RPA. It takes a couple of minutes before you can connect to the RPA again. The status information in the GUI indicates that the RPA is up (status changes from Error to Ok). Attach RPA to Cluster
** Cluster operations ** [1] Attach to cluster [2] Detach from cluster [B] Back [Q] Quit pod1 RPA1: 1 Do you want to attach the RPA to the cluster (Note: RPA will be rebooted) (y/n)? y You have configured an NTP server for the RPA cluster. There is no need to set the system clock. Do you want to do so anyway? (y/n)? n RPA is going to be attached and reboot. Attach to cluster succeeded
