Computer data storage, often called storage or memory, is a technology consisting of computer components and recording media used to retain digital data. In addition to local storage devices like CD and DVD readers, hard drives and flash drives, solid state drives can hold enormous amounts of data in a very small device. Cloud services and other new forms of remote storage also add to the capacity of devices and their ability to access more data without building additional data storage into a device.

I am trying to clear my confusion about Active and Active I/O in a storage path. I configured few ESXi 6.5 today and mounted VNX5400 using software iscsi initiator. On the storage, we use Round-Robin policy.
There are four paths from ESXi host to storage. The storage has active/active storage processors. I see two paths as Active I/O and other two paths as Active. I noticed the active I/O paths to the storage processor which owns the LUN. My understanding was Active I/O means that path is being used for I/O activities and it is an optimized path.  We have another VNX on a separate site, It shows all paths as Active, and I do not see any Active I/O. Does this mean that this storage has not got the optimized path and should be corrected to be as Active I/O and Active?
What is the difference between Active and Active I/O?

Hi,

I am planning to purchase a a Dell dedupe storage appliance to copy 16 TB of data ( from NetApp SVMs which acts as file servers) using Robocopy or EMCopy (as the Veeam backup currently not supporting to backup from NetApp SVM file servers, CIFS volumes) in  a weekly basis. I want to retain the backup for a month. When I do this using Robocopy, could you let me know whether the storage appliance dedupe apply or not on the backed up files.

Kind regards

Looking at this comparison chart, and I see that "MBR Storage device partitioning" is not supported. What exactly is MBR Storage device partitioning? I'm looking to build a data lun, and I would use VMFS 6 for the automatic unmap option.

The way I look at it, its telling me I can't have a VM that uses MBR from a VMFS 6 datastore. Is that the case, or is it something else?

We want to implement this across all computers in our domain. However our PDC is still running SBS 2008 and the Advanced Audit Policies are not available to do so. So before we go and touch 50 or so workstations, we're wondering if there is a simple way to do this, maybe through a script?

Hi,
I have 6 1TB hard drives that I intend to use in a RAID 5 (So 6TB minus 1TB for parity is 5TB usuable space.
On the 5TB, I am planning to install Windows 2012/2016 server and use the rest of the space to store hyper-V VM servers.
My question is, are there any likely problems with this disk configuration?
If so, what should I do instead to avoid problems?

Hi there!

I have to store names in a certain table field... When I type (for instante) "Cláudio" this name is stored as "Cláudio".

I have already checked the page configurations involved (like  charset=iso-8859-1) and also the Collation in the table and database themselves (like SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CS_AS).

Question: could be the SQL server store procedure the guilty part?  It is the one below:

-----------------------------------------------------------
PROCEDURE [dbo].[name_sproc]
@UserName varchar(100),
@UserEmail varchar(100)
AS
INSERT INTO dbo.tableUsers(UserName, UserEmail)
SELECT @UserName,@UserEmail
-----------------------------------------------------------

If so, what should I ALTER in the procedure above?  If not, any ideas?

I don´t know if matters, but the sproc is called like this:

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Dim loginFullName, loginEmailUser

loginFullName = CStr(Request.Form("loginFullName"))
loginEmailUser =  CStr(Request.Form("loginEmailUser"))

Set objConnection = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")    
      objConnection.open ....

SQLsproc = "net_ins_User_sproc N'" & loginFullName & "','" & loginEmailUser & "'"

objConnection.CommandTimeout = 0
objconnection.execute SQLsproc
objConnection.close
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Last detail: when I print the

loginFullName = …

Hello,

I replaced a tape drive that didn't work with another one (exactly the same thing)
I rebooted the server, and when it came back to windows it found the new tape drive, I cleaned it and put a tape inside, but every time I try to initialize the tape I get error e0008115 and the tape drive goes offline
The tape drive is TANDBERG LTO-4 and the software I use is Symantec Backup Exec 2010 R3, Windows Server 2008

Thanks

We have a business requirement to provide a one-way sync of data from an external source.

For example, an external contractor would like to move data into the network however, we cannot allow data to leave the network. Dropbox is typically two-way and we would like to secure the environment to make it one-way.

All suggestions, recommendations are welcome!

I am looking at Disaster Recovery solution that is based on VMware SRM. The main challenge is SRM only protects VMs. Which is fine as the applications are running on VMs but their database is running on physical servers (due to support requirement). How do  to replicate physical DB to protected site and yet maintain consistency with applications (app use storage array replication) is the puzzling question.

Your help is greatly appreciated.

The user is a photographer and presently has an 8 TB RAID, which is physically carried between two locations every few months.

They now have a decent cable modem connection in the remote connection they use, with an upload speed of 10-15 mbs

Their activity consists of loading in 2-15 gigabytes every week or so, cataloging and adjusting the photos with Adobe Lightroom.  Computers are MacOS X, maintained to the latest version of the operating system that supports Lightroom.  

What's the best way to keep two copies of the RAID in sync over the Internet?  I can set up a VPN.

Thanks

Hello
we have LUN presented to two nodes (however failover cluster was not configured)  and online at the same time.
it was a dynamic disk of many partitions.
this LUN is showing as missing, and failed is the label on all partitions,
tried to recover disk, and tried to recover partitions and both failed.

i know a disk should be online on one host a time, could it be the reason this corruption ?
is there any way i can recover that disk ? can HP support assist in reactivating that disk and representing it again ?
any ideas would be great, thank you

Hi,
 
 I have DELL Poweredge T420 Server with H710 RAID  and like to update all drivers and firmware - BIOS, Chipset, iDRAC, Lifecycle ... etc. Instead of downloading necessary files on each component individually, is there some type of utility program that I can use to install firmware/drivers all together?

Thanks.

Disaster Recovery as a Service is one go-to solution that revolutionizes DR planning. Implementing DRaaS could be an efficient process, easily accessible to non-DR experts. Learn about monitoring, testing, executing failovers and failbacks to ensure a "healthy" DR environment.

Good Morning,

Last Saturday, we proceeded to run our Site Recovery Manager vmware to replicate live all our servers from the Main Site to the Alternate Site, the migration was a success.

Right now reviewing the Site Recovery Manager of my site Alterno that at the moment is my productive environment, I could validate that at Array Based Replication level the following error:

Cannot find matching consistency group at remote site for 'RCG-PRO-BACK-CB'.
Cannot find matching consistency group at remote site for 'RCG-PRO-BACK-CB.r48367'.

However I run a Test Recovery Plan and in the report, no errors or warnings appear, my question is that if when I re-execute the migration to my productive site again, this error in the Array Based Replication, would it affect my replication at all?

Or should we validate our storage box.?

Similarly, append printer with the error.

Regards...

This is virtual disk in Raid 5, where Disk 7 is hotspare.
When Disk 11 removed (failure disk), Disk 7 is Rebuilding.
Should I wait for Disk 7 rebuild completely, or I can insert new Disk 11 now?

Hello,

What application will display the contents (both text & images) of a .dto file?

I use a clipboard utility called Ditto which saves a copy of everything placed on the clipboard. This includes both text and images.

The utility has an export function which is accessed by selecting the items (clips) you want to export then right-clicking as shown here:

 2017-08-12b_EE.png
Regarding the export options:

• Export Clip(s) results in a file with the extension .dto and as far as I can tell, is used only for moving data to another computer running Ditto.
• View as QRCode (don't know what this is or what it does)
• Export Clip(s) to Text File (no images of course and only one clip per .txt file)
• Export Clip(s) to Image File (no text and only one image per .png file)
• Export to Google Translate (n/a)

I'm looking for a way to open the file with an app that displays strings of multiple clips (both text and images) which can be scrolled up or down rather than having each clip in a single file.

Following are some sites containing info re Ditto although nothing I understood well enough to accomplish what I'm after:

1) Ditto download website
2) Ditto documentation
3) Ditto forum
4) Forum thread which includes the following comment:
        "the data is stored in an sqlite file, Ditto.db"
5) File extension website

Thanks

Well, the question title says it all, but what I am looking for are these features:

- Fast
- Software independant (hardware cloning, the device needs to do the job)
- Clone to a smaller sized disk (if the amount of data on the source disk allows it, does not exceed the target disk total size)

I have seen devices like Sandberg Diskcloner / Sharkoon Quickport XT Duo Clone and Icy Box Clonestation.

No idea what to expect, anyone any experience?

Thank you
