  1. Mr. David Ring,

    I came across your posts today doing additional research on RecoverPoint thank you for all the great information you have posted.

    I am researching all I can on RecoverPoint that is how I came across your site; as it applies into our present issue with Dell Unity and RPA failures.

    I was thinking what the hell ask David Ring a question at worst all he can say is piss off at best provide the answer to resolve our issue at hand.

    Scenario – CCR solution synchronous mode RecoverPoint/EX currently using RP for Disaster Recovery from PROD site to DR site switch back and forth and for compliance

    Facts: Operating approximately 20 CG’s PROD Site A DR Site B AND 10 CG’s PROD at Site B DR at Site A.

    Recently upgraded to Cisco MDS 9710’s SAN connected 32 GB 48 Port modules.
    hosts/storage/RPA all good running great on SAN Fabric.

    RecoverPoint – Test and Failover of CG’s PROD Site A to DR Site B and after running approximately 4 hours commit to Failover all hell breaks lose and Site B Host lose access to LUN’s Unity Spliters down Kdriver crash.

    Symptom – Kdriver process aborting, crashing or stopping for no apparent reason on Site B UNITY 400.

    QUESTION – Have you seen or heard of this type of RecoverPoint/Unity issue or do you have any idea what could be causing Kdriver to abort on Unity?

    Could this be a Zoning issue on Cisco MDS 9710? What is best practice for RPA FC/Unity Zones? Single Initiator one Unity SP FC Port w/all RPA FC ports? Or One RPA FC Port and all Unity SP Ports?

    Site A
    Hosts – AIX LPARS, Windows, Linux
    Unity 400 O.E.
    Brocade DCX 8510 SAN Fabric A/B
    RPA EMC-900-541-044 GEN 6
    Mem 31.1GB
    WAN 1 Gb/s
    FC 16 Gb/s

    Site B
    Hosts – AIX LPARS, Windows, Linux
    Unity 400 O.E.
    Cisco MDS 9710’s SAN Fabric A/B 32 GB modules
    RPA EMC-900-541-044 GEN 6
