I added a disk to RAID Group 0, not I am getting the above error when the system does a backedn health check.  How can I fix this?   Thank you.

Is there a Celerra gateway attached to the CX600? This appears to be an issue specific to Celerra systems.

If it is a Celerra gateway, then you need to use 4+1 or 8+1 RAID groups (or perhaps 6+1  - depending on the code revision).

Can you also post the full text of the error message?

yes.  I do have a Nas gateway in my system.   Celerras version is 5.5.32-4.  Below is the message i see in the log file.  The error appeared after I added the disk to the RAID group.   Thank you very much  for you time and support.

The Celerra doesn't know what to do with a 5+1 RAID 5 group (it's not a supported Celerra configuration), so you're out of luck I'm afraid. The only way out of this is to create a new file system with some spare disks, migrate the data, blow away the bad RAID group and recreate it as a 4+1 RAID 5. You *may* be able to upgrade to a later version of DART (the Celerra OS) and use a 6+1 RAID 5 as an alternative, but that will take some serious investigation to work out if that's possible.

Thanks for the information.   Access to CIFS shares are OK now.  If I leave this along, will Celerra eventually stop working for me?   What will happen if I reboot the box?   Thank you.

Meyersd,  I have another question for you.   Is it safe to just blow away the RAID group after I migrate my data over to other disks?  Will there be system data stored on this RAID group that I might risk damaging?   Thank you again for your time and support.

>If I leave this along, will Celerra eventually stop working for me?
It may unmount the file system on a reboot - which means you wouldn't be able to access the files.

If these are FC drives (and I'd expect that RAID Group 0 would be), then you need to be using either a 4+1 group or 8+1 RAID 5 group. If the RAID group was originally allocated using the Celerra's tools, then the RAID group is almost certainly exclusive to the Celerra so it is safe to move the Celerra LUN and recreate the RAID group. It is easy to check from Navisphere by looking at the RAID group in the Navisphere tree - you'll see the LUNs that are sitting on the RAID group.

Having said all that, Celerra boot LUNs are on RAID Group 0, so you will need to be VERY careful.

Have a read of these EMC KB articles: emc138143  (Adding new storage to a Celerra using Automatic Volume Management (AVM)) and emc144545 (How do I perform a CLARiiON LUN migration on a Celerra server?)

From emc144545:

"CLARiiON LUN Migrations are supported, but only under the following criteria. These are restrictions which MUST be followed carefully, otherwise data outages or data loss can be incurred.  

A LUN migration is supported when migrating the control volumes as part of a CX to CX3 upgrade. This is normally a Professional Services engagement; an RPQ is no longer required, but a CCA is required.  Celerra boot LUNs 0-5 should reside on the CLARiiON Vault drives.

When LUNs in a Celerra storage group are greater than an Host ID of 15, the following rules apply to LUN migrations with regards to data LUNs:

The RAID type is the same (for example, RAID 5 RAID5, or RAID 3  RAID 3)  (NOT RAID 5 -> RAID 3 or RAID 3 -> RAID5)
 
The drive type is similar. (FC allowed to FC), (ATA allowed to ATA)
 
The number of the physical drives in the RAID group is the same.  (Source and target RAID groups)
 
The source and target LUNs must be identical size (According to block count size, not MB size)"

If you're not 100% confident of what you're doing here, I'd strongly recommend getting in touch with EMC Support.
