My question is regarding EMC symmetrix bin file .My company is planing for a hardware upgrade and according to EMC they need to have a lock on this bin file for 5days that is we are not allowed to do any configuration changes for 5 days in the Storage box.I really dont understand how this kind of limitations are there in an enterprise array .
Also can anyone give me a link for whitepapers reg .bin file am not able to find much usefull info on net
We recommend locking the box with CE lock while any upgrade is planned. This is to ensure that no new configuration is made or changed while the upgrade is done or from the time BIN file is captured from the Symm. Since all these procedures are internal to EMC, i dont think there is any public white paper exist for the same?
From Enginuity 5875 and above following Hardware changes are allowed without CE config lock:
