EMC VNX – RecoverPoint Enabler Installation

Installing the RecoverPoint Enabler using NAVICLI:

Check the list of all ENABLERS currently installed on the VNX:
naviseccli -h SP_IP ndu -list

A series of rule checks need to be performed in advance and correct any rule failures before proceeding:
naviseccli -h SP_IP ndu -runrules -listrules

Your configuration will run the following rules
===============================================
Host Connectivity
Redundant SPs
No Thin Provisioning Transitions
Version Compatibility
No Active Replication I/O
Acceptable Processor Utilization
Statistics Logging Disabled
No Transitions
All Packages Committed
Special Conditions
No Trespassed LUNs
No System Faults
No Interrupted Operations
No Incompatible Operations
FAST Cache Status
No Un-owned LUNs

Run through the Pre-installation rules to ensure the success of this software upgrade:
naviseccli -h 10.73.113.40 ndu -runrules -verbose

A common result is a warning for tresspassed LUNs:
RULE NAME: No Trespassed LUNs
RULE STATUS: Rule has warning.
RULE DESCRIPTION: This rule checks for trespassed LUNs on the storage system.
A total of 1 trespassed LUNs were found.
RULE INSTRUCTION: If these LUNs are not trespassed back, connectivity will be disrupted.

To remediate this rule failure and change the Current Owner you will need to execute a trespass command on the LUN using navicli or by right clicking on the LUN in Unisphere and click the trespass option:
naviseccli -h SP_IP trespass lun 1
If changing on multiple LUNs then running the trespass mine command from the SP will trespass all the LUNs that the SP has DEFAULT ownership of. For example to trespass LUNs with Default Ownership of ‘SP B’ but which are currently owned by ‘SP A’:
naviseccli -h SPB_IP trespass mine

Statistics Logging Disabled : Rule failed.
naviseccli -h SP_IP setstats -off

Confirm all rule checks for RPSplitterEnabler are met:
naviseccli -h SP_IP ndu -runrules c:\VNX\Enablers\RPSplitterEnabler-01.01.5.002.ena -verbose
