HP MSA 2040 and Remote Snap replication

Hi i have two array 2040 double controller with 4 ISCSI ports.
I created one raid 50 on my array 1 with two volumes mapped to my host through port 1 and 2.

I created replication link for my volume to my array B and i would like use only my prt 3 and 4 for the replication how i can do it ?

When i monitor my replication i saw my first volume use port A2/3  but the second volume use A1/A2

And i would like dedicated port A1/2 and B1/2 for my host access

Array 1 : > Array 2 have the same configurationo just change the last digit.

A1 : 192.168.1.1 /24 to switch 1

A2 : 192.168.1.2 /24 to Switch 2

A3 : 192.168.2.1 /24 to switch 1

A4 : 192.168.2.2 /24 to switch 2

B1 : 192.168.1.3 /24 to switch 1

B2 : 192.168.1.4 /24 to Switch 2

B3 : 192.168.2.3 /24 to switch 1

B4 : 192.168.2.4 /24 to switch 2

thanks by advance.

Re: HP MSA 2040 and Remote Snap replication

Did you ever get help with your SAN and replication?  If not, here is my 2 cents.  I believe you have ports configured with 192.168.1 and 192.168.2 subnet address connected to each switch. I have a similar setup and like addressed ports are on the same switch (or Vlan in my case).  Below is my setup:

Port A1 (iSCSI): IP Address:192.168.100.10 goes to local Switch 1 for host connectivity

Port A2 (iSCSI):  IP Address:192.168.100.11 goes to local Switch 1 for host connectivity

Port A3 (iSCSI):  IP Address:10.50.68.10  goes to local Switch 2 for replication connectivity

Port A4 (iSCSI):  IP Address:10.50.68.11 goes to local Switch 2 for replication connectivity


Port B1 (iSCSI):  IP Address:192.168.110.10  goes to remote Switch 1 for host connectivity

Port B2 (iSCSI):  IP Address:192.168.110.11  goes to remote Switch 1 for host connectivity

Port B3 (iSCSI):  IP Address:10.50.68.12  goes to remote Switch 2 for replication connectivity

Port B4 (iSCSI):  IP Address:10.50.68.13  goes to remote Switch 2 for replication connectivity

You then interconnect local switch 2 with remote switch 2 as they are all common addresses and use these addresses to define your Remote System for replication in the SMU.  The Switch 1 devices are used between the hosts and the MSA for iSCSI connectivity.
