The function can not be performed since the STD device is already paired with a Dynamic RDF device

Hi I have :

18- way meta for a 2-way STD devices of 4GB symdevs.

Now, this is SRDFed to R2 device.

Now I have been asked to create 3 BCV Timefinder /Mirror for Source R1 devices.   I have created and synced one BCV but when trying to establish second pair i get error : -

"The function can not be performed since the STD device is already paired with a Dynamic RDF device"

Can you let me know what can be the issue. Enginuity used 5771. DMX3.

Thanks in advance.

is the original BCV pair split ?

No they are in sync.   I wanna have 3 BCV to R1 devices and then rotate them every 2 hours.

you need to split them, cant' have both pairs established at the same time.

Dynamox, Thanks a lot, it did worked but still it won't solve my problem with 3 BCV for 1 single 2-way mirror STD R1 device.

why not ? You can have up to 16 BCVs associated with one STD device, they just can be established at the same time.

I think you wanted to say "CAN'T be established at the same time " ?

Well I am using symmir commands on 5771.

So using the Timefinder Mirror , how many BCV's I can establish at the same time??

Also wondering will it help if I use timefinder clone (symclone) and that way I can have 16BCV to a STDR1 device at the same time ?

thanks.

oop..yes, typo.

You can only have one BCV established at the same time, the other 15 have to be in split state. This still acomplishes what you want to do, here is note from TimeFinder guide:

Hi dynamox,

Thanks for the response it does make sense.

What i have just found is.... i dropped symmir completey.

Started using symclone .... and now same 3 BCV are TF/Cloned to same STD source with precopy -differential option set.

I think it works better with symclone for me...and they are all established at same time.

only confusing part is ... the copy % is stuck at 99% and state is PreCopy .

I'm not sure why your pre-copy is stuck at 99%, but if there are writes to the source devices, they will never really be fully copied until you activate.  You can activate anytime, so if you need the target devices, simply activate them.
