Unable to add devices to RDF group

below is the error I am getting when adding a BCV+R1 device to a SRDF group.How can I bypass this issue.

symld -g RDFG1 add dev 1448

"Cannot add the device to the device group because it is a BCV device"

grep 1448 symrdf_list.txt
1448 02D7 B-R1:1 RW RW NR S.. 0 58 RW RW Split

thanks

Re: Unable to add devices to RDF group

RDFG1 is a new RDF1 group and all the devices given are of the type BCV+R1. How will I add these devices to the group.I am able to est/split by specifying the devices directly with symrdf command.

Re: Unable to add devices to RDF group

You deserve a green star 😄

Re: Unable to add devices to RDF group

I have faced the same issue. I was working on pre-work to migrate SYMDEV 77AD (R1) to target VMAX using SRDF.

But I was NOT able to add SYMDEV 77AD to DG . It was failing with below error:

"Cannot add the device to device group because it is a BCV Device".

When I checked device configuration I found "RDF1-BCV+TDEV". As device group was RDF1 type and device was RDF1-BCV so I thought of Migrating it using file rather than Device Group.

Work around : create a temp file Pair.Txt and run symrdf commands on that file rather than on Device group.
