You can't really do that.

Well, you could stop the hosts from writing to the first EVA, break the replication, mount both vdisks to a server and then run a low-level block-for-block compare.

But after that you have to set up the replication from scratch again. As far as I can tell, there is no way to ask the EVAs to do a compare - you just have to trust the software.

There simply is no utility to do this live, as far as I(we) know.

EVA Perf is used to anaylse the perfirmance of the EVA, not compare data.

The ISP port stats you posted are not useful for comparing data.

Re: CA/CLX EVA 5000

Current exchange server is 2007 SP1 Sitting on win 2003 enterprise SP2.
we plan to install Exchange SP2 as a step toward exchange 2010, my question is is it ok to do so in connection to CA/CLX, is it supported or not?
