Backing up EVA Storage array Configuration

Does anyone know if there is an alternate way of backing up the EVA storage array besides using SSSU "Capture Configuration" ?

No, but SSSU is really a good way to do this.

Hope this helps!

Re: Backing up EVA Storage array Configuration

Hi,
There are quorum disks in EVA which have the configuration backup. At any given point, EVA has 5 copies of this configuration stored in different disks in different disk enclosures.

SSSU capture is the best (and the only one I believe) to get this info out of the controller.

I never heard of one myself but a company I am working for mentioned HP had told them of one, but I had never heard of one myself.
I have used SSSU and knew that it worked.

Thanks
