Re: How to share the FC to HP virtual Machine

Hi,

you can either pass a disk, lvol or file as a virtual disk to your VM.

I would pick a LVOL for that (if you don't have any multipath software), because you can use pvlinks that way.

Just create a VG on the EVAs vdisk (including alternate pathes) and a LVOL in this VG.

Now add this LVOL to your virtual machine:

hpvmmodify -P myvmsystem -a disk:scsi::lv:/dev/vg_name/rlvol_name

replace "/dev/vg_name/rlvol_name" and "myvmsystem" with your values.

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Re: How to share the FC to HP virtual Machine

Hi
Thanks for your immediate reply.
Now what problem i am facing , while taking backup of the disk (which i creatd from EVA array) using DP 6.0 it gives an error "It is non eva object"
Actually what is happening, the VM recogonize the disk (which i present from the base host) as a normal disk not a eva disk.So DP gives the error due to that reson because DP will not take the non EVA objects Backup.
So what i want means, the vm system should indentify the disk as a EVA disk then only i can continue my task.
Thanks for your response also i hope you will solve the next problem. One more thing ZDB on HP VSE is possible or not.


Thanks

Re: How to share the FC to HP virtual Machine

Hi don't know ZDB, what is it stand for?

ANY disk inside a virtual machine is emulated as a SCSI disk, the describtion is in your case LV virtual disk.
You can't change this.

Try to use it like a plain SCSI disk.

Hope this helps!
