Lab Description

Purpose:

This lab is designed to familiarize the user with the configuration and management of a CLARiiON Storage System using the Navisphere Manager Graphical User Interface (GUI). The Navisphere Manager GUI is very robust in its ability to provide the necessary information for day-to-day management of a CLARiiON data storage environment, while providing an easy to use, Windows look and feel. This lab will walk the user through the steps necessary to create and allocate data storage on a CLARiiON Storage System as well as acquaint the user with optional CLARiiON software that allows for disaster recovery and staging data for online data backups. This lab provides step-by-step directions for configuring a CLARiiON using Navisphere Manager 6.x. The revision of Navisphere Simulator is based on Release 26 of CLARiiON base code. Note the Simulator does not contain the entire features/function set like the real Navisphere Manager product. If at any time the Simulator appears frozen or non responsive, exit the application and Launch it again. 1. This simulator supports only version JRE 1.6.x. If no JRE is present the Simulator will install one automatically when user opens the application for first time 2. Reporting wizard will create the html reports under c:\. 3. A Reset option has been provided in the Simulator once installed. It appears in the menu item like this

4. Uninstall option is also included in Simulator as shown above. 5. The read me text file is in the install folder for support of JRE 1.6.x 6. Help file has been updated to reflect all wizard modules.

Lab 6: Configuring SnapView Snapshots


Step 1. Action
A snapshot is a virtual LUN that when activated, allows a secondary server to view a point-in-time copy of a source LUN. An active snapshot is a composite of a source LUN and reserved LUN data that lasts until you destroy the snapshot. Each snapshot is linked to a source LUN(s). If the storage system loses power while the SnapView session is running and you have an AX-series system or are running SnapView version 6.24 or later, both the session and snapshot would survive the storage system power failure, since all sessions run in persistent mode. If you have an earlier version of SnapView and did not start your session in persistent mode, the session is lost and the snapshot becomes inactive. Writes to an active snapshot from a secondary server are stored in the reserved LUN pool until the snapshot is deactivated. When a secondary server deactivates the snapshot, the software destroys all writes made to the snapshot. The exercise will have you create and remove Snapshots on a CLARiiON array.

2.

Click on Replication Tab from the Task Bar Click on the Configure SnapView Snapshots Icon to launch the Wizard. Read the dialog ,Click Next Select w3k-240 as the Production Server, Click Next Select the CX3-40-TOP Storage array, Click Next

Lab 7: Configuring SnapView Clones


A clone is a complete copy of a source LUN. You specify a source LUN when you create a clone group. The copy of the source LUN begins when you add a clone LUN to the clone group. The software assigns each clone a clone ID. This ID remains with the clone until you remove the clone from its group. While the clone is part of the clone group and unfractured, any production write requests made to the source LUN are simultaneously copied to the clone. Once the clone contains the desired data, you can fracture the clone. Fracturing the clone separates it from its source LUN, after which you can make it available to a secondary server. The next steps will take you through the creation of Clones using the Wizard. Step 1. Action
From SG_w3k-240, right click on LUN 0 , Click Apply, Yes, OK From the Task Bar Wizard, Click Configure SnapView Clones Icon Select Next from the Welcome screen Select w3k-240 for the Production Server, Click Next Select CX3-40-TOP from the Storage System Screen , Click Next From the Select Storage LUNs Window , expand the Storage Groups container, expand SG_W3k-240 container Click the box for LUN 0, Click Next From the Select Clone LUN Names window Click Next From the RAID Configuration window Click Next Select server w3-241, Click next Read the Summary Screen, Click Finish Read the Results window, Click Finish

Lab 8: San Copy Full Replicas


Step 1. Action
San Copy will copy data to LUNS on the same array or between 2 arrays over distance. San Copy uses CLARiiON ports that are zoned together to make a San Copy Connection. LUNs on both arrays should appear in the Storage Groups that have the San Copy connections setup. ON CX3-40-BOTTOM > Storage Group SG_w3-241

2.

In your connection window, note the SAN Copy Connection box. It should show the remote array and an SP. The box from Ports to Connect will show ports that are properly zoned. You can select a different System by using the drop down arrow next to it. For each port that is unchecked, CHECK it, then APPLY. Repeat this for ALL ports. Use the drop down and check the other ports. You should have connections to 2 ports on the remote array. Expand the San Copy Connections to validate.

Lab 10: Creating Synchronous Mirrors


A remote mirror consists of a primary image and up to two secondary images. The production image (the one mirrored) is called the primary image; the copy image is called the secondary image. MirrorView/S supports up to two remote images. Each image resides on a separate storage system. The primary image receives I/O from a server called the production server; a separate storage system maintains the secondary image. This storage system can optionally have a failover/standby computer connected to it or can be connected to its own computer system. Both storage systems can be in different domains, which you manage with the User Interface (UI). The client that is managing the storage system containing the primary images can fail over to the secondary image if the primary image becomes inaccessible. In the previous labs, you created RAID Groups, Storage Groups attached hosts, and created Clones and Snaps. CLARiiONs arrays support two (2) types of mirrors - Synchronous and Asynchronous. The creation of RAID Groups Storage Groups and LUNs should have already been done on BOTH ARRAYS.

Step 1.

Action
Right click on the CX3-40_Top array > MirrorView > Manage MirrorView Connections Select the connection from the right panel and click Enable . Click OK

Open Storage group w3k-240 on CX3-40-Top array. Right click on LUN 0 > Properties> Rename the LUN 0 to MVS_Source_LUN 0 Click on the configure MirrorView Icon from the Task Bar Click Next from the welcome screen

Expand and examine the following containers on the Primary ( cx3-40-top) and Secondary (cx3-40-BOTTOM) arrays Private LUNs under LUN Folders SPs Storage Groups Remote Mirrors

Note: The write intent log keeps track of writes that have not yet been made to the remote image for the mirror. It allows for fast recovery when the primary storage system fails. When the primary fails and is recovered, the write intent log is used to synchronize the data on the remote image. Otherwise, a full resynchronization would be required for the remote image. In situations where you must replace the primary storage system due to a catastrophic failure, you can use a promotion to access data on the secondary storage system. To recover and restore I/O access, you must promote a secondary mirror image to the role of primary mirror image, so that a server can access it.

3.

On the Primary array open the Remote Mirrors container and expand out all options. Right click on the Secondary Image name and note the options. Click Promote, read the next 2 screen. Did the Primary and Secondary Mirrors switch states? Try promoting the Primary image Promote the secondary image back to Primary Right click on the secondary image and Fracture the mirror. Did the state change? Right click on the secondary image and Remove it Right click on the Mirror Name and Destroy the Mirror.

Lab 11: Creating Asynchronous Mirrors


Step 1. Action
Creating an Asynchronous Mirror is very similar to a Synchronous Mirror. Open SG_W3k-240 Storage Group. Right click on LUN 1, Rename LUN 1 to MVA_Source_LUN 1 Use the same procedures you used to create a synchronous mirror except select Asynchronous for the Mirror type. When you get to the Attributes screen take the defaults. Take the defaults on the next few screens, select w3k-241 for the Select Servers screen Click Finish, Finish

2.

Note the difference on the Primary LUNs status Mirrored Snapshot Active. MirrorView/A uses snapshots to keep track of changed data on the source LUN. Check out the following containers by expanding each one and note their contents. Also, verify the mirror has been created on the secondary array under remote mirrors SPs Reserved LUN Pool ( should have a Allocated LUN on the owning SP) RAID Group 2 Storage Group w3k-240 SnapView> Snapshot Names> Reserved Snapshot > Reserved Sessions

3. Manual Creation of a Mirror


Open Storage Group SG_w3-241 Right click on LUN 2 > Properties > Rename to MVS_Source_LUN 2 Right Click on the LUN > MirrowView > Create Remote Mirror Use the parameters shown in the screen (use the drop down to change from Asynchronous to Sync) Click OK, Yes, OK
Under Remote Mirrors check the status of the newly created Mirror Right click to Add Secondary Image From the screen ensure the secondary array is CX3-40-BOTT Select LUN 2 > Select OK, Yes, OK Check the status of both arrays and Mirrors Destroy the Secondary Image, then the Mirror, from the Remote Mirrors Container Click on the secondary mirror image > Remove Click on the Mirror Name > Remove You have created and destroyed both Synchronous and Asynchronous mirrors. Congratulations! Next you will create San Copy sessions.

Lab 12: Expanding LUNS - Striping


Expanding LUNs on a CLARiiON is how you can increase the capacity of an existing LUN You must first create a LUN to use for the base metaLUN. MetaLUNs can be created using two methods, Striping and Concatenation. The lab will take you through the striping method. Step 1. Action
From the Storage Management Taskbar, click on the Expand Icon. Click Next to the Welcome Expand Wizard window From the Select Server window check server w3k-240, Click Next Select the CX3-40-TOP array, Click Next From the Select LUN to Expand window select LUN 2, Click Next From the Select Expansion Type window Select the default of Stripe Expansion ,Click Next From the Select Unused LUN window select LUN 20, Click Next From the Specify metaLUN Capacity window take the default of maximum capacity, Click Next From the Specify new LUN settings window click Next From the Summary window verify the capacity is correct ( 10GB). click Finish Click finish from the Results window

2.

Expand the LUN Folders container. A striped metaLUN consists of a single Component with a number of LUNS that comprise the metaLUN. Available LUNS are the same size and RAID Type of the base or source LUN. Right click on the metaLUN to view the properties. Expand the Private LUNs container, RAID Group container where that the LUN is contained under, and the Storage Group in which the LUN is in. Note the numbers to the right of the LUNs are assigned by the wizard. These will be different depending on the array model.

Lab 13 : Expanding LUNS - Concatenation


Expanding LUNs on a CLARiiON is how you can increase the capacity of an existing LUN You must first create a LUN to use for the base metaLUN. MetaLUNs can be created using two methods, Striping and Concatenation. The lab will have you create a metaLUN using concatenation. Step 1. Action
Click on the Expand icon, Click Next. Select server w3k-240 Storage Array CX3-40-BOTTOM, click Next Select LUN 0, Click next Click the radio button for Concatenation, Click Next From the Select Unused LUN window select LUN 20, Click Next From the Specify metaLUN Capacity window take the default of maximum capacity, Click Next From the Specify new LUN settings window take the defaults.Click Next From the Summary window verify the capacity is correct ( 25GB). Click Finish From the Results window , Click Finish
Verify the settings from the Summary window

2.

Expand the LUN Folders container. Expand LUN 0. A concatenated metaLUN consists of multiple components with a number of LUNS that comprise the metaLUN. Available LUNS can be different sizes and RAID Types than the base or source LUN. Right click on the metaLUN to view the properties. Expand the Private LUNs container, RAID Group container where that the LUN is contained under, and the Storage Group in which the LUN is in. Note the numbers to the right of the LUNs are assigned by the wizard. These will be different depending on the array model.

Lab 14: LUN Migration


The LUN migration feature lets you move the data in one LUN or metaLUN to another LUN or metaLUN. You might do this to change the type of drive the data is stored on (for example, from more economical ATA to faster FC, or vice-versa), to select a RAID type that better matches the data usage, and/or recreate a LUN with more disk space. Step Action 1. Expand RAID Group 1 on the CX3-40 BOTTOM array
Right click on LUN 11 and check the properties. Verify the LUN size. Cancel Right click on LUN 11 again and click Migrate Expand both SPs to view available LUNs. Note they may be from different RAID Groups. Select LUN 21 click Next , click OK to start the Migration. Right clicking on the properties of LUN 11 will now show a migration tab on the upper right side of the window, click on the tab to show the status. After migration completes verify the following; Under which RAID Group does LUN 11 reside? Where is LUN 21? What is the RAID Type for LUN 11? Verify the settings from the Summary window
