Hi
Please help me to solve out below issue.
I have shared 4 drives from storage to 1 application blade server but after every 3-4 days drives are automatically disconnecting from server and it causes that our replication stops, I am getting below errors:
\Device\MPIODisk0 is currently in a degraded state. One or more paths have failed, though the process is now complete.
A fail-over on \Device\MPIODisk0 occurred.
Microsoft DSM returned a bogus Path to \Device\MPIODisk0.
The device, \Device\Harddisk0\DR0, is not ready for access yet.

That hotfix may well stop the drive failing when one redundant path fails but you really also need to address the loss of path and that's pretty much guesswork as we don't know what storage you have, you don't even tell us if it's FC or iSCSI attached.

So what does your SAN look like, how many adapted (and ports) how many switches and how are they connected, how are your zones setup

So the new application server is wired exactly like the others?

What about your zoning?

Not an expert on 3Par, but is there some configuration required on here?

There's a DSM for 3Par, it doesn't use the generic MS one. Cabling can't really be an issue with SAN switches in the blade enclosure but zoning can be.

Yes, server is wired exactly like others and don't know about zone but i think it will be same and all enclosure servers are in same ip range.

FC Zoning is separate from IP addressing, its normally done on the FC switches

Check which DSM the other servers are using for MPIO.
