    Central Management or External Management Agents

    Is there any way to get a central management system for those of us with multiple clusters deployed? Even with a single cluster deployment with 2 units, it would be nice to be able to manage...

    On "1" up54, if I try to Start the cluster (this is the secondary node right now):
    Internal error occurred
    Failover cluster could not perform requested operation (error code #HT24).
    You may also...
  3. Cluster stuck in Starting status after upgrading to up53

    Been running through stepped upgrades on a few of the clusters (some of them from up12 to up54 without issue)..

    One cluster, however, is stuck (for reference, we'll refer to one host as "1" and...

    We already have the 2x DSSv7 Unlimited capacity licenses ready for those boxes :) But, we'll keep it in mind for the next cluster
  5. Thanks - it looks like after discussion, we're...

    Thanks - it looks like after discussion, we're going to be installing a new cluster with 48TB SSDs to replace that older cluster, so, we'll just be doing some VMware storage migration.
  6. Increasing storage volume for replicated iSCSI Active Passive for VMware

    We're running out of storage on one of our replicated clusters (Active/Passive), and will be adding 16x1TB SSDs (8 per node). We'll have to make this a separate VD in the RAID controller (Intel/LSI)....

    I've finally had the chance - I created tickets for 2 different clusters that have speed and performance issues in similar setups.

    Sounds good, I'll call tomorrow to make sure this will work... Would love not to have to do more vMotions than necessary.

    Write back won't be enabled on the controllers - they're setup for FastPath (LSI)... That requires:
    Write Policy: Write Through
    IO Policy: Direct IO
    Read Policy: No Read Ahead
    Disk Cache Policy:...

    I guess I should be clear - this will not really be an "upgrade" in the sense that I'm upgrading the version.. We'll be pulling the drives out since they're all spindles, and getting replaced with...

    Thanks, Todd - I think I was accounting for that by doing the direct IP connection? I'm just not sure if I can setup the iSCSI volume on the v7 unit with all failover settings in place and still work...
  12. I didn't run a Write test before getting the...

    I didn't run a Write test before getting the volumes in place, but, the Read test was pulling back about 4-500MB before I moved the VM load to it.. Now it's reading about 250MB on the read.
    (This is...
  13. Will this work for no downtime upgrade from DSS v6 to DSS v7 with iSCSI Failover?

    I was wondering if this would work to do a no downtime upgrade from DSS v6 to DSS v7 with Failover currently in use.. It's running the last release v6 in an iSCSI Failover configuration (for VMware...
  14. Slow performance (or unexpected rates) with 10Gb and SSD storage arrays

    We have a couple of the following clusters setup:

    Open-E DSS v7 (latest build) in Active/Passive iSCSI for VMware
    Intel R2224GZ4GC
    1 cluster pair uses RMS25CB080 (SAS 6Gb) controllers with 16x...

    Just watched the video again - I remember seeing it before because the audio/video is a little out of sync, hehe.

    It's good to know that updates can be done either way (primary or secondary...

  19. Proper way to upgrade to B6156 from B5845 in iSCSI HA config?

    What's the best way to proceed to upgrade a production HA iSCSI failover cluster running B5845?

    We can't take the iSCSI targets down...

    Do we upgrade the secondary unit first, manually failover...

    I'm guessing someone is logged in right now (I see a "User logged in from 127.0.0.1")?
