Using the Remote Replication Premium Feature 105
The command in this example creates a new replication repository virtual disk
by using five software-selected physical disks for the replication repository
virtual disk. The replication repository virtual disk has RAID Level 5. The
type of physical disk for the replication repository virtual disk is SAS.
This example shows how to use the command in a script file:
activate storageArray feature=remoteReplication
Determining Candidates for a Remote Replicated Pair
All of the virtual disks and physical disks on the remote storage array might
not be available for use as secondary virtual disks. To determine which virtual
disks on a remote storage array that you can use as candidates for secondary
virtual disks, use the show remoteReplication candidates
command. This command returns a list of the virtual disks that you can use
when creating a remote replication.
The command takes this form:
c:\...\smX\client>smcli 22.214.171.124 126.96.36.199
-c “show remoteReplication candidates primary=
where virtualDiskName is the name of the virtual disk that you want to
use for the primary virtual disk, and storageArrayName is the remote
storage array that contains possible candidates for the secondary virtual disk.
Enclose both the virtual disk name and the storage array name in double
quotation marks (“ ”).
Creating a Remote Replicated Pair
When you create a new remote replication, you must define which virtual
disks that you want to use for the primary (local) virtual disk and the
secondary (remote) virtual disk. You define the primary virtual disk by the
name of the virtual disk. You define the secondary virtual disk by name with
either the name or the World Wide Identifier (WWID) of the storage array
on which the secondary virtual disk resides. The primary virtual disk name,
