    Data stored on a VLS is easily cloned to physical tape for off-site disaster protection or long-term archival using a backup application. This section describes the HP StorageWorks 300 and 12000 Gateway virtual library system models. VLS12000 Gateway Components A VLS12000 Gateway consists of at least two nodes (one primary node and between one and seven secondary nodes) and dual LAN switches for internal inter-node connections.

  • Page 41: Deleting Array Luns, Storage Luns Details Window

    Deleting an EVA LUN that is part of an existing storage pool will result in the loss of all cartridge data for that storage pool. To remove a LUN from the device: Unpresent the LUN to the VLS (see instructions below) or delete the LUN from the external array. HP StorageWorks 12000 Gateway Virtual Library System User Guide...

  • Page 42: Configuring Storage Pools, Unpresent Host(s) Window

    Restart emulations or reboot the device (see “Restarting VLS Device Emulations” on page 144 or “Rebooting the System” on page 100). Discover unconfigured storage (see Discovering Array LUNs). This deletes the removed LUNs from the configuration. To unpresent a LUN: In Command View EVA, Storage tab navigation tree, select the EVA for the VLS Gateway storage system, Virtual Disks, the disk name that you want to present, then ACTIVE under that disk.

  • Page 44: Destroying Storage Pools

    Add the array LUNs to the storage pool(s). Open a Command View VLS session and log in as the administrator. See “Opening a Command View VLS Session from a Web Browser” on page 105. In the Storage tab navigation tree, under Storage Pools, select a storage pool. From the task bar, select Add External LUN.

  • Page 45: Installing Additional Licenses, Confirm Destroy Storage Pool Window

    Either recreate storage pools using the LUNs previously assigned to the destroyed pool(s), or delete them. Installing Additional Licenses Your VLS system may require any of the following licenses: • Capacity — when you have added capacity to the system's base capacity. HP StorageWorks 12000 Gateway Virtual Library System User Guide...

  • Page 46

    A VLS capacity license must be installed on the VLS when storage exceeds the base license. If you are in a license violation state, all VLS read/write operations are disabled until either sufficient licenses are installed to support the storage, or the excess storage is removed. When you have cleared a license violation by installing an upgrade capacity license, the VLS read/write operations are automatically enabled without requiring a reboot.

  • Page 48: Understanding Automigration Concepts, Echo Copy Concepts

    Understanding Automigration Concepts Before using automigration, review the information in this section. This will allow you to create copy pools and automigration policies appropriate to meet your storage needs. Echo Copy Concepts Echo copy acts as a transparent disk cache to the physical library, so that the backup application writes to virtual cartridges in the virtual library.

  • Page 49: Smart Copy Concepts

    During replication, the source VLS copies data to the echo copy pools on a replication library that is on the source. During the user-defined availability window, this replication library migrates data to the destination library, known as the LAN/WAN replication target. HP StorageWorks 12000 Gateway Virtual Library System User Guide...

  • Page 50: Tape Initialization

    The following are two of many possible replication configurations: • Data center to data center Designate one VLS as the source and a second VLS as the destination. Configure the destination VLS to present a LAN/WAN replication target that is visible to the source VLS. The source VLS performs normal backups during the regular backup window, and during the availability window the source virtual cartridges automatically migrate to matching virtual cartridges on the destination VLS.

    LAN/WAN libraries. See “Managing a SAN Library” on page or “Managing a LAN/WAN Replication Library” on page . An unmanaged library is a library that is not recognized by and using automigration or replication. The process for unmanaging destination libraries is the same for both SAN and LAN/WAN libraries. “Unmanaging a SAN or LAN/WAN Library”...

  • Page 53: Unmanaging A San Or Lan/wan Library

    If the library you wish to unmanage is not already selected, select it now. NOTE: You can only select one library to unmanage at a time. To unmanage additional libraries, repeat the procedure for each library to unmanage. HP StorageWorks 12000 Gateway Virtual Library System User Guide...

  • Page 54: Echo Copy Pool Operations

    Select Submit. The Destination Library Details screen displays, with the message, “The library, [library name], was unmanaged successfully.” Echo Copy Pool Operations Echo copy acts as a transparent disk cache to the physical library, so that the backup application writes to virtual cartridges in the virtual library. Automigration then automatically schedules the copies from virtual cartridges to their matching physical cartridges (with the same barcodes) based on the automigration policies.

  • Page 55: Creating An Echo Copy Pool

    For LAN/WAN echo copy pools, select “Initialize via Tape Transport” only if you intend to use this echo copy pool for the one-time process of tape initialization. (See “Tape Initialization” on page 50.) Select Next Step to set the policies. HP StorageWorks 12000 Gateway Virtual Library System User Guide...

  • Page 56

    Type the desired policy settings in the corresponding fields. The policy settings differ for SAN libraries and LAN/WAN libraries, and are as follows: SAN libraries: • Retention days the number of days information is kept in the firesafe before it is deleted. The default is two days.

  • Page 57

    If the new pool is not created due to a slot range error, repeat this procedure and select slots within an available range. HP StorageWorks 12000 Gateway Virtual Library System User Guide...

  • Page 58: Creating Virtual Tapes, Restoring From A San Physical Cartridge

    Creating Virtual Tapes Virtual tapes are created automatically when: • A pool is created that includes physical tapes. • A Load Media for Restore, Load Blank Media, or Load Media for Overwrite is performed. • A tape is moved into an echo copy pool by some means other than automigration. NOTE: The tape is only created if a header exists and is legible by the system.

  • Page 59: Restoring From A Lan/wan Virtual Cartridge, Loading Blank Media Into An Echo Copy Pool

    From the task bar, select Load Blank Media to open the Load Blank Media screen. From the drop-down box, select the copy pool you want to load the media into. You can also choose unmanaged slots that are not in a copy pool. HP StorageWorks 12000 Gateway Virtual Library System User Guide...

    For all mailslots, the destination slots are automatically populated with the first available slots. To keep the automatic assignment, skip to Step 10. To assign the destination slots manually, continue to the next step. If the Destination Slot Number for each mailslot displays “None,” the copy pool you selected is full.
