EVA4400 upgrade to XCS 9520000

We recently upgrade our EVA4400 from XCS 9006000 to 9520000. Upgrade went well, but all of my Vdisk names are lost and dropped from their respective folders. They are now outside their folders and renamed as 'Temporary Name : Virtual Disk xxxx'.

Have anyone had this issue before or know how can i get back my old vdisk names?

Thank you in advance.

Hello,

have you restarted the CV server? You can check the names with SSSU. If SSSU list the vdisks with the same name, you maybe have to rename them all. When did the failure happen? directly after the upgrade?

Best regards,

As far as I can tell, in this case the culprit is Command View EVA which screwed up the UUID/name mapping table.

Did you take a 'CAPTURE CONFIGURATION' and /or 'ls vdisk,hosts,...' before the upgrade?

Open a call with HP and ask if they can recover the mapping.

Upgrade to Command View 9.1 ASAP
Older versions can cause that to happen.

Once you have it installed, rename the vdisks.

Hello Everyone,

Thank you for your response. I have summarised the status below.

1. CV already upgraded to 9.1
2. CV server was restarted after the upgrade
3. SSSU also displays 'Temporary Names'

I don't remember capturing information before the upgrade, so i may need to manually find out which disk belongs where, and add them.

Will the moving vdisk to folders cause any issues/impact to the hosts accessing those vdisks?

Moving vdisks into or between folders does not have any impact for the hosts.

I would advise you to upgrade to 09522000 and not the 09520000.

There are some minor updates that you might want. If you have 09520000 installed and all I/O modules have firmware version 0073, an upgrade to 09522000 can be done online.
