StoreOnce and RMC connectivity with 3par

Hi Experts,

I've a question regarding SAN zoning configuration of RMC with StoreOnce and 3par. i want to perform express protect through RMC [I heard that express protect directly backup from 3par to StoreOnce].

How should i zoned RMC with StoreOnce and 3par ?[RMC=>VM installed on ESXi with passthrough]

Should i use single initiator , single target or RMC + StoreOnce +3PAR in one zone ?

If there is any document available,Please share the link.

any advice would be highly appriciated.

many thanks

dpx

hi

there is not much in documantation

HPE Recovery Manager Central 3.0.0 User Guide

Hpe Storeonce Recovery Manager Central Deployment and best practices

HPE Recovery Manager Central 3.0.0 for VMware User Guide

you must use VMware VMDirectPath to configure HBA on RMC

and you must zone these hba's with 3PAR and another zone with Storeonce

also don't configure RMC as host on 3PAR because it will fail your job 

I have used single initiator to multipule targets. but most important is that RMC sees 

3PAR and Storeonce.

Many thanks for sharing the thought.

Initially, I did with single initiator and single target but i'm not sure single initiator with multiple target will improve the throughput.

One more question, should I choose dedicated 3par back end ports or mix with other back end ports ?
Thanks

Hi

according to HPE support you don't need dedicated ports

also RMC supports only 2 paths to 3PAR.

If you have enough ports it could be better to use dedicated ports

but it is not a must.
