ksysmgr - do not suggest running discover on empty workgroup
When the last VM is removed from a workgroup, ksysmgr should not suggest running a "discovery to apply changes" (should say "discover" as there is no "discovery" process) against the empty workgroup because it is not needed and the resulting retur...
Remove host from cluster when removed from host_group
The host should be completely removed from the cluster when it is removed from a host_group. This would match the same action occurring with VMs - they are completely removed from the cluster when they are removed from a workgroup.
I've a VMRM HA cluster with 2 Hosts and 2 VIOS per Host. During firmware update or other maintenance on FC or ETH adapters connections are disruppted for a short time. During this activity the KSYS received notification of some Critical Events. My...
The VMRMDR needs to be enhanced to able to discover/verify the VLANs listed in the "Additional VLANs" section of the HMC profiles during discover/verify operations so that they complete successfully without errors. This would also allow the ksysmg...
VM Recovery Manager DR host group support for multiple SVC or Storwize cluster required (TS007732006)
VM Recover Manager DR Host group currently supports a single svc or storwise storage cluster because VM Recovery manager Host group is unable to create consistency group on more than one svc cluster. Host group support for multiple svc cluster is ...
Ford has switched to Pure Storage and would like to automate DR such that during a disaster, VMRM would be able to automatically change the replication and mounts such that Ford can failover to DR automatically.
Currently VMR is limited to 12 Hosts.Some customers have more than 12 hosts. Therefore they need to have a solution which supports more than 12 Hosts. A support for 64 Hosts may be a good starting point.
Currently VMRM/DR allows the CPU to be scaled down when an LPAR moves to the DR site. However, when we're moving a correctly-sized LPAR from a POWER9 to a POWER8, this severly reduces the performance, even when using 100% due to the difference in ...
Provide capability to use non-root user onVM Recovery Manager HADR
VMRM HADR 22.214.171.124 requires that all operations, CLI and GUI, are configured and managed using the root user. The GUI sends commands to the AIX KSYS instance using ssh but it is standard practice for Banks to change /etc/ssh/sshd_config to the foll...
