We are considering enabling SIOC in a VMware 5.5 environment. On the SAN the LUNs are on a single RAID 5 pool. This pool has 10 LUNs, and each LUN has a single datastore on it. We planning to enable SIOC on each datastore in the pool. Also we are using SRM to protect the production VMs.
So far our research about SIOC has been very favorable. The only negative finding has been this vm article about SRM and SIOC.
SRM Planned Migration fails with error: Cannot unmount datastore [NAME] which has VMs on it (2032365)
I asking for advice about enabling SIOC.
Would like to hear about problems experienced with SIOC.
Thanks for your help.
