Configuring VPlex VIAS

Jump to solution

Hopefully a quick question.

Configuring VIAS in a VPlex Metro Configuration, the question is around the step where you register the Array Management Provider (AMP) on the VPlex GUI and using the document listed as a reference http://www.emc.com/collateral/white-paper/h13049-provisioning-emc-vplex-integration.pdf

So in a VPlex Metro where we have an AMP on each site, when it comes to registering the AMP do we register each AMP only on its own cluster or both on each cluster ?

So do we register AMP 1 on Cluster 1 and then register AMP 2 on Cluster 2  or register AMP 1/AMP 2 on both clusters together (so AMP1/AMP2 on cluster 1 & cluster 2).

From my understanding it would be the first option but i dont think its that clear.

Thanks

Darren

Hi Darren

You register the AMP only on its side of the cluster

For example

if you have a VNX in Site A and a VMAX in Site B

Then you would register the AMP for VNX in Site A only

Register the AMP for VMAX in Site B only

Example B

If you have a VNX and XtremIO in Site A and VMAX in site B

Then in Site A you would register one AMP for VNX, Then register an additional AMP for XtremIO in Site A

So 2 x AMP in Site A

Then in Site B you would register one AMP for VMAX

Hope this helps

Any other questions let me know

Kind Regards
