Follow these guidelines before you create a mirror consistency group.
Meet the following requirements for Unified Manager:
The Web Services Proxy service must be running.
Unified Manager must be running on your local host through an HTTPS connection.
Unified Manager must be showing valid SSL certificates for the storage array. You can accept a self-signed certificate or install your own security certificate using Unified Manager and navigating to Certificate › Certificate Management.
Also be sure to meet the following requirements for storage arrays:
The two storage arrays must be discovered in Unified Manager.
Each storage array must have two controllers.
Each controller in both the primary array and secondary array must have an Ethernet management port configured and must be connected to your network.
The storage arrays have a minimum firmware version of 7.84. (They can each run different OS versions.)
You must know the password for the local and remote storage arrays.
Your local and remote storage arrays are connected through a Fibre Channel fabric or iSCSI interface.
Synchronous mirroring is not available on the EF600 or EF300 storage system.
