LUN Migration across storage pools using SMI-S

Hi,

I am trying to execute LUN migration across storage pools in VNX clariion. I tried using StorageConfigService::createReplica method with following arguments

CopyType : sync

ElementName : LunName

SourceElement : CimObjectPath of source LUN

TargetPool : CimObjectPath of target StoragePool

But I am getting following error

WBEMException: CIM_ERR_NOT_SUPPORTED (The requested operation is not supported. (com.emc.cmp.osls.se.osl.Replica.StorRepGroupRelCapGet():1475 C:ERROR_CLASS_SOFTWARE F:ERROR_FAMILY_NOT_SUPPORTED R:1000002 C:ERROR_CLASS_SOFTWARE F:ERROR_FAMILY_NOT_SUPPORTED R:1000002 Requested feature is not supported by entity's software level : "This feature is not installed"))

What can be possibly wrong? Is there any other SMI-S aPI call to execute LUN migration?

Thanks,

Aditya

Re: LUN Migration across storage pools using SMI-S

Hi,

This issue is usually associated with a license missing from the array.

You need a SNAP or SANCOPY license in place to use this feature.

If you have a license and have difficulty appying it, please open a live chat with VNX support who can assist you with applying it

If you require a license or unsure if you have a license, please first try the EMC Licensing page or alternatively, contact your EMC account manager.

Please note that Support can only assist you once you have a valid License or activated LAC code

Kind Regards,

M

Hi Martin,

Thanks for the reply. I figured out that I don't have Mirror copy license.

Actually I am trying to migrate LUNs between StoragePools using SMI-S APIs.

Do you know how this can be done?

Thanks,

Aditya

Re: LUN Migration across storage pools using SMI-S

Hi,

Unfortunately this is not possible without the relevant licensing. The SMI-S API's impliment commands necessary to carry out the function on the array. When a valid license is not in place, this is where the operation halts and you experience errors such as the one you experienced before.

Hi,

I will get the relevant licenses but I am not sure which functions are used in SMI-S API to execute migration of LUNs across pools.

Thanks,

Aditya
