We are trying to configure COFC backups of our physical server estate and our VMWare server estate. (DP 9.07)
I am happy with the StoreOnce Catalyst Store creation process, and we are 99% happy the new devices have been created correctly under DP.
My question is specifcally around the zoning and data flow as we want to ensure we are getting the performance and throughput we should expect.
> Zoning for Physical servers.
Should we be creating server specific zones per server which include:
- WWN of the server FC HBA,
- WWN of the Cell Managers FC HBA,
- WWN or WWN's of the Catalyst Store FC HBA,
> Zoning for VMWare Integrated backups.
Should we be creating zones as follow:
- WWN of VCenter
- WWN of Cell Manager
- WWN of SAN or Storage location for Datastore/VM Disks
- WWN or WWN's of the Catalyst Store FC HBA
I would really appreciate some clarification as to what entries are required per zone and to achive a good data flow to our new Catalyst store .. The VMware in particular we are a bit confused around as these dont use traditional disk agent style backups.
Thank you very much in advance,
