SAN volume offline until change in storage processor
Posted on 2010-09-16
We have a customer who is using an EMC AX100i SAN that has two storage processors on it. This same SAN also has two volumes defined. Typicaly, we have one volume on one SP and the other volume on the other SP. Recently, after a reboot the volume on the server will be listed as "Unrecognizable" and won't become active until we move the volume on the SAN from one SP to the other. We will do nothing with the iSCSI initiator and the volume will appear on the server shortly after the storage processor change. There is no support agreement on the SAN and nobody, prior to our involvement, ever set up an account with EMC for support. So, going to EMC is not an option. I am curious if anyone has ever seen this before and, if they have, what did they do to correct it?
