I assigned VNX Luns on a windows 2008 hosts but it is unable to format it as NTFS.
First, it takes a long time to format and then at the end it keeps it in RAW format.
This host is currently using luns from SUN storage and we need to migrate it to VNX
Please help with the resolution
There are many possibilities that come to mind. Are you using quick format? Perhaps try to format from the server console. Is it possible you are trying to format a LUNZ? Do you have PowerPath on the server? Does the lun you are attempting to format show in PowerPath?
These are just a few things to consider. Perhaps a service request with EMC is needed to review the EMCReports.
Are you using a failover mode of 4 on the VNX?
Do you have the same result for all luns or just one?
Do you have the same result if you reduce to a single path and remove MPIO?
Failover mode is set to 4
Same result for all luns
I was already working with single path and I tried removing MPIO as well, rebooted host and tried again and got the same result ☹
