can i diasble DFM Alerts for luns and volumes that was createt from SnapManagerSQL/SnapDrive for SQL Database verification when they are going offline and destroyed after the verification prozess from snapmanager/snapdrive ?? we have a lot off false positive messages every day, it would be great when i can disable these alerts.
I am happy for every feedback...
The only workaround is provided in the bug details, however I have not heard any reports of anyone using it
Adjust the LUN monitoring interval to exceed the verification run time, this can be accessed through the following menus
Setup menu > Options > Edit Options: Monitoring > LUN monitoring interval, Fiber Channel monitoring interval, and SAN Host monitoring interval
The release containing the fix is due out in the next few months.
You are basically hitting the know issue. Check the Bugs online http://support.netapp.com/NOW/cgi-bin/bol?Type=Detail&Display=300668
All I can suggest is, configure your events at group level instead of Global group. And exclude the group with just the SnapManager Volumes.
I would hope there would be a solution to adjust the LUN monitoring interval to exceed the verification run time for the SnapManager Volumes Only, not the entire Global Group. Or have DFM be smart enough to recognize *sdw_cl* clones and exclude from alerts!!
This issue is currently being addressed, and will be available in a subsequent release.
Also the point to note here is, its not just sdw_cl but also sdu, snapcreator etc for both lun and volume clones.
