We have now ageing vmax40k where disks and SPSs regularly fail.
Note that a drive bay has 8 SPS units ...how many failures can the Bay tolerate ...and what happens if any limit is breached ?
We have one failure presently ..what is impact of a second, or third failure.?
Is it limited to vaulting ability on that bay (hence entire array) but will not prevent unit from serving data , albeit with multiple SPS failures ?
Thoughts appreciated !
Thanks , john
I have the same question if anyone knows what is the minimal number of good SPS for a disk enclosure. Also what happens when SPS count is not sufficient to vault.
