EVA 5K - What Problems have you had and what VCS Version Are you on


So far, no loss of data (w/c is quite impressive) - only hung servers which resume operations as soon as the EVA's are fixed. Running on 3.014 since mid May.. but have had 2 or 3 odd controller behaviours which resulted from disk failures.

Anyone out there experienced similar problems? All of our EVA's are hooked up to SecurePth 3.0C/D HP-UX 11i (PARISK) servers.

Also, is 3.020 already out?

Nelson,
there are customer advisories about new disk drive firmware - sometimes a disk seems to get kicked out by error. You should be able to load the FW online on VCS 3.014 and up without the requirement to ungroup the disk beforehand.

3.020 has been released, but I think it will take a bit of time for general rollout as you need new software (some parts like platform kits and BC-EVA) are already available.
