Anyone Using EVA5000 and XP Arrays at the same time on the same HP-UX Server with no Problems?

Anyone Using EVA5000 and XP Arrays at the same time on the same HP-UX Server with no Problems?

We've a relatively new (less than a year old) environment consisting of PA-8800 based cell partitionable servers (SuperDome/rp8420), EVA 5000 arrays and a brand new XP12000. We're running HP-UX 11i v1.0 on these environments. We use SecurePath 3.0E for path protection on the EVA LUNs and VxVM DMP for the XP LUNs (with VxVM ASL12K). The boot disks/OS/swap are still managed by LVM while all others are managed by VxVM (with rootdg on small sized LUNS).

Of late, we are experiencing recurring panics as a result of what HP calls WSIO memory arena corruptions. They have not been able to specifically trace the source of the problem after about close to 3 months of troubleshooting.

Is anyone on this forum running the same configuration as we are -- i.e. EVA5K + XP array on the same server? And are you also experiencing the same problems as we are?
