P9000 Business Copy User Guide
Abstract
This guide explains how to use HP P9000 Business Copy Software to create nondisruptive, high-speed internal copies of
information stored by open-systems hosts on HP P9000 disk arrays and attached heterogeneous external storage systems.
Topics include how to create, split, suspend, resynchronize, and troubleshoot Business Copy pairs using the Remote Web
Console web client. The intended audience is a storage system administrator or authorized service provider with independent

Actual windows may differ depending on the operating system and browser used. GUI contents also vary with licensed program products, storage system models, and firmware versions.

  • Page 6: Volume Pairs (p-vols And S-vols), Cascaded Pairs

    Figure 1 Business Copy configuration Volume pairs (P-VOLs and S-VOLs) A pair consists of the primary and secondary data volume and the volume. Each primary volume (P-VOL) can be paired with up to three secondary volumes (S-VOLs). Thus, you can create three pairs using one P-VOL.

  • Page 7: Remote Web Console Gui, Raid Manager And Consistency Groups, Initial And Update Copy Operations

    Figure 2 Structure of cascaded pairs The P-VOL of the L1 pair is the "root volume." An S-VOL of the L1 pair is a "node volume." A P-VOL of an L2 pair is an L1 S-VOL — a node volume. An S-VOL of an L2 pair is a "leaf volume."...

  • Page 8: Initial Copy, Update Copy

    Initial copy When you create a pair, the initial copy is started by the system, and all the data in the P-VOL is copied to the S-VOL. Before the pair creation the pair’s status is SMPL. While the initial copy is in progress, the status is COPY. The status changes to PAIR when the initial copy is complete.

  • Page 9

    Figure 4 Update copy operation Although an initial copy completes and pair status changes to PAIR, the data in the P-VOL and S-VOL may not be the same because the copy of the update data is performed asynchronously. To ensure that P-VOL and S-VOL data are the same at a certain point in time, the pair must be split. CAUTION: If the copy operation is completed without any host I/O, the data in the P-VOL and the data in the S-VOL may not be the same.

    Residency settings of the two volumes are also exchanged. To avoid performance impact, consider the following: ◦ Both pair volumes should have the same RAID level and HDD type before performing the quick restore operation. You can resume the original RAID levels after the quick restore by again splitting the pair and performing the quick restore.

  • Page 18: Sharing Business Copy Volumes, Open Volume Management, Cache Residency, Lun Manager, Data Retention, Auto Lun

    3 Sharing Business Copy volumes Business Copy volumes can be shared with other HP program products. This chapter discusses requirements, recommendations, and restrictions for using Business Copy with other products. Open Volume Management Both LUSE and Virtual LUN volumes can be used as Business Copy volumes. With LUSE volumes, the P-VOL and S-VOL must have the same configuration (the same LU capacity and the same number of LUs).

  • Page 19: External Storage, Continuous Access Synchronous, Continuous Access Journal

    Migration, destination, and reserved volumes of Auto LUN cannot be used for Business Copy pair operations. To perform Business Copy operations, the Auto LUN volumes must be released first. External Storage If Business Copy is used with External Storage, you can create pairs to use the external volumes. For information about the external volumes, see the HP P9000 External Storage for Open and Mainframe Systems User Guide.

    4 Performing configuration operations This chapter provides configuration information and instructions. Configuration workflow Setup for Business Copy consists of the following: Ensuring that primary and secondary volumes are set up correctly. Reserving volumes for use as S-VOLs. (Optional.) Setting the Host I/O Performance option, which boosts I/O performance, though copy time slows as a result.

  • Page 28: Set Host I/o Performance Option

    Ensure that the volumes you want to reserve are shown, and then click OK. The selected volumes display in the Preview List. When ready, on the Pair Operations window click Apply. To confirm the settings are applied, use the Display Filter dialog box. NOTE: LDEVs for P-VOLs and S-VOLs listed in Remote Web Console may end in the following special symbols:...

  • Page 30: Performing Pair Operations, Pair Operations Workflow, Check Pair Status, Create Pairs

    5 Performing pair operations This chapter provides instructions for performing pair operations using Remote Web Console. Pair operations workflow A typical operations workflow follows: Check pair status. Each operation requires a pair to have a specific status. You also check pair status to insure that an operation completed successfully.

  • Page 31

    Because pair creation affects performance on the host, observe the following: Create a pair when I/O load is light. ◦ Limit the number of pairs that you create simultaneously. ◦ When a pair is created, both LDEVs are allocated to the processor blade that the P-VOL is allocated to before the pair was created.

  • Page 32: Split And Create Pairs

    NOTE: When the Preview List already holds some Add Pair operation settings and you specify a different copy pace for new pairs in the Add Pair dialog box, the copy pace for the existing Add Pair settings displayed in the Preview List will be also changed. The latest copy pace specified in the Add Pair dialog box is always reflected to the storage system.

  • Page 33

    NOTE: The P-VOL and S-VOL are synchronized only when the pair status changes from COPY(SP) or PSUS(SP) to PSUS. Due to the Business Copy asynchronous update copy operations, this status transition can take several minutes. If you want the S-VOLs you are intending to split to be identical to the P-VOLs, stop all write operations to the P-VOLs before splitting the pairs.

  • Page 34

    Change to Modify mode by clicking the icon. In the tree, select the port or host group where the pairs or volumes are located. Related volumes display in the volume list. If a volume is already paired, pair information also displays.

    NOTE: The split type is set for all pairs being split. If you change the setting, the latest setting is applied to all pairs. 10. If you are splitting an existing pair or pairs, click OK and go to the last two steps in this procedure.

  • Page 36: Suspend Pair Creation

    Prerequisite Information On registering split time: ◦ When you register the Split time, you can only perform Suspend or Delete pair operations. Split time is rejected if the Paircreate, Split, or Resync operation is performed. If you want to perform one of these operations, reset the registration of the Split time. The specified Split time is reset when power is switched off.

  • Page 37: Resynchronize Pairs

    Select the pair(s) that you want to suspend (or the volume(s) whose pairs you want to suspend), right-click the selected pair(s) to display the menu, and select the Pairsplit-E command to open the Pairsplit-E dialog box. On the Pairsplit-E dialog box, select the pair(s) you want to suspend, and click OK to reflect the settings to the Preview List on the Pair Operation window.

    You cannot create a Continuous Access Synchronous or Continuous Access Journal pair ◦ with a volume shared by Business Copy during either backward resync operation. When the Reverse Copy or Quick Restore operation is in progress, you cannot create, ◦ split, or resync any pair sharing the same P-VOL.

  • Page 40: Delete Pairs

    NOTE: If you try to perform the quick restore operation to the pair you select from the Pairresync Volume List that is composed of volumes stored in multiple cache logical partitions (CLPRs), a message asking you whether you want to click OK and continue the operation will appear.

  • Page 41

    Select the pair(s) you want to delete, right-click, and select Pairsplit-S from the menu. The Pairsplit-S dialog box displays. If you selected a pair that you do not want to delete, select the pair on the Pairsplit-S dialog box, right-click, then click Delete. This removes the pair from the deletion list. Click OK.

    When switching power off During pair operations, when you switch off the power-supply for the system, ensure the following: Complete processing for an At-Time Split operation before switching off the power supply. If this is not done and the status of some of the pairs in the consistency group is changed but not others, the At-Time Split processing may not resume when you power-on the power supply.
