Set the storage array to duplex

You use the script editor in the Enterprise Management Window (EMW) to set the storage array to duplex mode.

Before you begin

Steps

  1. Open the EMW for SANtricity Storage Manager on your management station.
  2. Select the storage array.
  3. Select Tools > Execute Script.
  4. Type the following command in the text box.
    set storageArray redundancyMode=duplex;
  5. Select Tools > Verify and Execute.
  6. Type the following command in the text box.
    reset controller [a];
  7. Select Tools > Verify and Execute.
    After the controller reboots, an “alternate controller missing” error message is displayed. This message indicates that controller A has been successfully converted to duplex mode. This message persists until you install the second controller and connect the host cables.
