EVA Command View is locked

I have EVA HSV300 with version of v9.04.00.110413 and command view is not responding as before. It was a working storage and suddenly it freezed the CV. I tried releasing the WWN from cmd using cvutil.exe and resetting the controller but it still not working.


When I check the Management Paths, Controller Role is Slave. Below is the message I got..


"The storage system is not responding to management command requests in a timely manner. This may be due to a prior management command request with excessively long response time, or a communication problem. CV EVA will recover automatically when the storage system is able to respond to management commands. Management command access to the storage system does not affect host I/O."


Thanks in advance..

Just to confirm that you have performed the basic troubleshooting,


-Confirm that you SAN connected hosts with storage presented are still able to access their LUNs.

-Rebooted the CV Host

-Confirm that all the switches are operational and the zoning is correct.

Hey, can you access the EVA via CV or WOCP on the management module?

CV only communicates with the master controller.
