Re: Compellent Live Volume

 Here are the requirements directly from the most recent version of Dell Storage Manager Administrators Guide: 

To create Live Volumes, the requirements listed in the following table must be met.

Storage Center version - The primary and secondary Storage Centers must meet the minimum version requirements.

  1. Synchronous Live Volume: Version 6.5 or later
  2. Asynchronous Live Volume: Version 5.5 or later

NOTE: Dell recommends that both Storage Centers are running the same version of Storage Center.

Storage Center license - The primary and secondary Storage Centers must be licensed for Live Volume.

Storage Manager configuration - The primary and secondary Storage Centers must be added to Storage Manager.

Storage Center communication - The primary and secondary Storage Centers must be connected using Fibre Channel or iSCSI, and each Storage Center must be defined on the other Storage Center.

  1. On the primary Storage Center, the secondary Storage Center must be defined as a remote Storage Center.
  2. On the secondary Storage Center, the primary Storage Center must be defined as a remote Storage Center.

QoS definitions - Quality of service (QoS) definitions must be defined on the primary and secondary Storage Centers.
