Open Replicator hot pull FLM issues

Hi!

I am trying to migrate from DMX to VMAX arrays. Idea was to use Federated Live Migration for Windows 2003R2 host. When I try to do simple hot pull - it is working no problem, like symrcopy -f c:\temp\flm1.txt create -pull -hot. But, when I try "-migrate" option it fails to create OR session on same combination of source and target LUNs. When I run symrcopy -f c:\temp\flm1.txt create -pull -migrate -host_type windows -hba_type Qlogic -mp_type PPath -v I get error:'Create' operation execution is in progress for the device list
in device file 'c:\temp\flm1.txt'. Please wait...

Re: Open Replicator hot pull FLM issues

In a OR hot pull operation if a device is mapped to 4 FA's, all 4FA's need to be visible to the VMAX and also masked.

I see 2 errors in the log you pasted..

SANCOPY_DEV_WRONG_TYPE_OF_DEVICE meaning the target device may be smaller than the source.

SYMAPI_C_RCOPY_DISCOVER_ERROR meaning the source device is not visible from all paths it is mapped to.
