XP BC/CA Operations


After we edit and save the HORCM.Conf file, Can we do all BC/CA operations from XP Remote Console ? or we still need to run some commands from the remote host ?
which is the preferred way ?
If we use Remote console from which array we use for CA replication is it from Remote site array or from Local array?
sorry i am very new to this ..
Any help will be appreciated

Re: XP BC/CA Operations

What do you mean by remote console?

XP allows to perform BC/CA operations from CommandView and also from the host (where you create HORCM files and run the HORCM services).

If you have configured HORCM.conf files on 2 independednt systems and started the services on both servers, you can perform the BC/CA operation from any node.

Example: Host1 has PVOLs mounted and Host2 has access to SVOLs, you may copy/sync/split from any node, in result it will run the desired copy/sync/split commands on PVOL-SVOL pair.

Hope that helps.

Hi Amardeep

Sure that gave me some idea.
Remote web console i mean is HP Storage Works XP Remote Console(Storage Navigator).
Can we do same BC/CA split/create/sync etc., all operations from the GUI ?
Also is this also works same way as u mentioned , Can do from any array?
if we do on Array , do we need to run any other commands from Host too?

Thanks for your help

If you do from GUI, its tha same as doing using the scripts.

You either use scripts or GUI.
