In my environment I have 2 VPLEX VS2 arrays that we are decommissioning. They are set up as metro and are in different locations. Each cluster has 1 vmax array attached to it and on those vmax arrays contain the meta data luns. There are NO storage views or virtual volumes on either vplex array, only metas.
SO I need a guide to follow in order to decom these arrays. Is there one out there? I couldnt seem to find one on the Solve site, only how to shut the array down.
If anyone has a procedure that would be great. I guess turning off alarms would be step one and that is all I know..lol
The meta-volumes have to be destroyed first. and then a factroy reset of both the clusters has to be performed. Then the VPlex can be shutdown using the solve procedure. But, may I know the strategy behind or reason why the VPlex is being decommissioned ?
