AX100 randomly marking virtual disks offline

My AX100 seems to be randomly marking virtual disks offline for no apparent reason. The status of virtual disks can be different depending on which SP I log into. There are no component failures. I can refresh the management page and then the virtual disk will be fine. Refresh again and it'll be marked offline again. Rebooting the SPs doesn't seem to help. I'm running FlareOS 02.19.100.5.048. Any ideas?

Re: AX100 randomly marking virtual disks offline

Do the disks actually go offline (as in; the host(s) can no longer access the disks), or is it just reporting that in Navisphere, but the disks are still accessible?

Re: AX100 randomly marking virtual disks offline

The hosts continue to have access to the virtual disks throughout. I recently started having speed issues regarding the virtual disks and wasn't sure if Navisphere marking them offline constantly was causing an issue or not.

Is there anything being reported in the events?

Re: AX100 randomly marking virtual disks offline

Nothing in the logs. Here's an interesting tidbit. I moved the VM that was having issues to my EqualLogic box and now everything is working much better. Latency for the datastores on the AX100 have gone WAY down and they are showing normal as the status on both SPs. Perhaps it was just getting overloaded?
