Test communication for synchronous mirroring

You can test the communication between a local storage array and a remote storage array to diagnose possible communication problems for a mirrored pair that is participating in synchronous mirroring.

About this task

Two different tests are run:

Procedure

  1. Select Storage > Synchronous Mirroring.
  2. Select the mirrored pair that you want to test, and then select Test Communication.
  3. Review the information displayed in the Results window, and, if necessary, follow the corrective action indicated.
    Note: If the communication test fails, the test continues to run after you close this dialog until communication between the mirrored pair is restored.
