A tale of three cities

I think this picture speaks for itself:   Three XIVs.  Three cities.  Three way iSCSI.
All the mirror connections were created in seconds using drag and drop in the XIV GUI.
I can now take a volume in one city and mirror it to another.

And yes…. IBM Australia now has a demo XIV in each of three major cities, so why not drop by and have a look?

    I found that connectivity status on xiv gui doesn’t update dynamically even if hba is offline or during server reboot etc !!
    Have u noticed this before ? Do we have any new GUI code that will fix it !!

    Hi Lakshmanan. If your XIV is on 10.2.4, 10.2.4 or 10.2.4b then this is a known issue and is not a bug in the GUI itself, but in the reporting mechanism that populates the GUI. You can confirm this by running the fc_connectivity_list XCLI command. The next firmware release for XIV will contain the fix.
