HP 3PAR remote copy - Datastore getting disconnected frequently

I am facing datastore disconnetion issue after configuring the remote copy. We have two computer rooms and enabled replication in both the way. Just want to know whether we need to export primary  (Read-write) and secondary LUN (read only)(which having same LUN id) to the ESXi hosts.

 

Currently exported both the LUN's, and some times esxi hosts are getting any one LUN (may be from computer room1 or computer room 2). While trying to mount, its saying read only Datastore. In ESXi host, the datastore shore showing as inactive and greyed out.

 

Suspecting, this happening due to the export of both the LUN's (Read only and read write which have the same LUN id).

 

Please help

Yes you have to export in from both 3PAR.

Inside ESX it should look like this:Mirror LUN inside ESX


======================
That was not planned in this way.

Pradeepgs,

 

It sounds like something is not quite right in one or both configurations. Please post the output from commands "showhost" and "showrcopy" from both 3PAR array.
