MDS9000 - DS-X9032-SSM

Problem Description

License install causes applications using Write Acceleration to fail in DS-X9032-SSM.

Background

This issue is caused by a license conflict.

Problem Symptoms

If you install a feature license on any module, the storage services module DS-X9032-SSM with the SCSI flow feature will be reprovisioned and write acceleration on the flows will be affected.

For example, if you have a switch with a DS-X9032-SSM card installed with write acceleration configured, then add a DS-X9302-14K9 card, when you enable the license for the DS-X9302-14K9 card, this will disrupt the write acceleration data flow on the DS-X9032-SSM card.

Workaround/Solution

To recover from this issue, please follow these steps:

  1. Enter the shutdown command to shut the host and storage ports that are using the SCSI flow.

  2. Enter the no scsi-flow flow-id flow-id command to remove the SCSI flow.

  3. Enter the no ssm enable feature scsi-flow force module slot-number command to unprovision the SCSI flow. This will reload the module.

  4. When the module is up, enter the ssm enable feature scsi-flow module slot-number command to enable the SCSI flow feature.

  5. Reconfigure the SCSI flow.

This issue has been fixed in SAN-OS release 3.1.3a and onwards.
