Add SmartDR control functions to SRDF file sets for PowerHA
Currently we have customer applications which have servers with PowerHA installed using SVC SAN storage. I am managing the migration from SVC SAN storage to EMC PMAX SAN Storage which includes a new feature called SmartDR (AKA MetroDR) fromDell-EMC.
Currently when our team simulates a DR failover we use PowerHA to control all the SVC SAN storage commands. With the deployment of PMAX SAN Storage with SmartDR we are being told by the Dell-EMC labs that PowerHA requires a newset of "symmdr" libraries that can be used to control EMC SAN Storage commands. Without this library our team needs to execute manual process tasks when we execute a DR failover.
