Configure Storage Replication Adapter for SAN environment

Contributors Netapp-shabaana

You must set up the storage systems before running Storage Replication Adapter (SRA) for Site Recovery Manager (SRM).

What you will need

You must have installed the following programs on the protected site and the recovery site:

Steps

  1. Verify that the primary ESXi hosts are connected to the LUNs in the primary storage system on the protected site.

  2. Verify that the LUNS are in igroups that have the ostype option set to VMware on the primary storage system.

  3. Verify that the ESXi hosts at the recovery site have appropriate FC or iSCSI connectivity to the storage virtual machine (SVM).

    You can do this either by verifying that the ESXi hosts have local LUNs connected on the SVM or by using the fcp show initiators command or the iscsi show initiators command on the SVMs.

What you will need

You must have installed the following programs on the protected site and the recovery site:

Steps

  1. Verify that the datastores at the protected site contain virtual machines that are registered with vCenter Server.

  2. Verify that the ESXi hosts at the protected site have mounted the NFS exports volumes from the storage virtual machine (SVM).

  3. Verify that valid addresses such as the IP address, host name, or FQDN on which the NFS exports are present are specified in the NFS Addresses field when using the Array Manager wizard to add arrays to SRM.

  4. Use the ping command on each ESXi host at the recovery site to verify that the host has a VMkernel port that can access the IP addresses that are used to serve NFS exports from the SVM.
