Re: symcfg -sid <SYMID> list -connection

Thanks for your quick reply.

In our enviroment 4 hosts connected to same FA port and all hosts are symcli installed/registered, but symcfg list -connection is showing only one host, why not it is showing the other 3 hosts.

Dynamox,

So can we consider all these hosts are management hosts???

can we say all these hosts having GK devices??

THanks,

Re: symcfg -sid <SYMID> list -connection

it depends on your environment, some people install SE on their database hosts because they want to run TimeFinder commands there. Does it make it a management host, it manages symmetrix device operation right ? I consider management hosts that are used to do more than just run TimeFinder/SRDF commands. I consider SMC/ECC/Unisphere for VMAX/Solution Enabler hosts to be management hosts. Symm management is in-band and requires gatekeepers.
