VIOS storage mirror testing over distant datacenters
To increase the rubustness of the VIOS, it is highly appreciated to also do testing for storage mirroring over distant datacenters. The requesting client has an environment of about 5.000 vscsi disks from two datacenters with a distance of 5 miles. The client LPAR has one (LVM) mirror from each datacenter. Testing should include to stop one storage/FC switch in one site completely (disaster). The client LPARs should only lose a mirror, but should continue working as expected.
