Re: remote snap replication

Hi

The P2000 replicate via the host ports and so if you have a FC version then you will need FC connectivity across the two sites.  As you say you only have IP connectivity between the two sites this could be achieved via some sort of IP gateway such as the HP MPX110  - alternatively you may be able to get a couple of iSCSI modules for the P2000s and use those for the replication and FC for the host connectivity - this is assuming you have the slot spare for the iSCSI module.

 

There is a good PDF 'Cookbook' on how to setup Remote Snap on the HP website as well as a short video :o)

 

hope this helps
