VNX Hotspare Policy with 5.33.000.5.051

Hi,

Has EMC changed the Hotspare requirements from 1 per 30 disks to 1 per 60 disks?  Does anyone have any documentation on this changed?    hotspare.jpg

See page 9.  Best practice is still 1-30.  The recommended policy will be modified to reflect this in the next release.  For now, we suggest setting the policy to custom and choosing 1-30.

I see this too in Release 33 P51.  The only reference I see in the Release Notes is to the following bug, but I don't quite understand it.  Is the "1 per 60" a bug or a new "best practice"?

1-30 is still best practice.  We will be changing the recommended back to 1-30 in the next release.
