Re: CA Question on xp12k

1. If you mean can you CA an ldev from CLPR0 on array A to an ldev in CLPR1 on array B the answer is yes.

2. No. From the Command View User guide:

"If Continuous Access XP Asynchronous or TrueCopy for z/OS Asynchronous operations are
performed, and the volumes that are extended over multiple CLPRs are allocated to the same
consistency group, a pair cannot be created."

3. It is part if the "-f Fence" specification form the paircreate command:

â f fence [CTGID](CA only) Specifies a data-consistency level.
Valid values:
async CTGID (CA-Async and CA-Journal only)
CTGID (CT group ID) is assigned automatically, but the async option terminates with EX_ENOCTG when beyond the maximum number of CT groups.
136 HP StorageWorks Disk Array XP RAID Manager: Userâ s Guide
Maximum number:
The CTGID option forces creation of paired volumes for a given CTGID group.

I suggest you get a copy of the RaidManager XP User Guide.
