Hi,


What does the attachment mean in the output of symcfg.exe? (for ex, please see below for sample output)


Is the management of both local and remote arrays same - or, some commands/features wont work for storage arrays which are attached remote?


C:\Program Files\EMC\SYMCLI\bin>symcfg.exe list

                                S Y M M E T R I X

                                       Mcode    Cache      Num Phys  Num Symm

    SymmID       Attachment  Model     Version  Size (MB)  Devices   Devices

     {sid1}      Local       VMAX-1    5876      120320         5      5604

     {sid2}      Remote     DMX3-6    5773       16384         0       875

     {sid3}      Remote     VMAX-1SE  5876       28672         0      3816

     {sid4}      Remote     VMAX-1SE  5876       28672         0      4160

Best regards,

Local means that the SYMAPI server you’re working on has direct access to gatekeepers on the array. Remote means that the SYMAPI server can see/control the array via an SRDF link from one of the local arrays. You can do pretty much anything on a remote array that you can on a local array.

Local is the array that the host you ran the command on is connect to.

Remote is the SRDF relationships to the local array.
