Re: XMS Virtual Appliance

It's not that this is recommended again, it's actively not supported.

The problem is that if/when you have an outage (planned or unplanned) you end up in a catch-22 situations - you need to XMS in order to start the array, but you need the array started to boot the XMS.

Officially it's not supported to put the XMS on any XtremIO storage - even a different array than the one it's managing.  This is simply because it's too easy to end up in the same situation as above.  eg, two arrays with the corresponding XMS on the opposite array sounds fine - until you have a full datacenter power outage and lose both of them...
