Reg Snapdrive vs simulator

Hello ,

I have a quick question folks, I installed snapdrive on windows2003 server & want to test it with simulator version 7.2.4.

when i clicked on disks->create disks-> in the" enter the storage system name" where i entered simulator ip address i am getting error RPC server is  unavailable

Please solve my query.....

Thanks in advance.


Re: Reg Snapdrive vs simulator

RPC server unavailable is normally due to CIFS not enabled.

Can you try with the HTTP/HTTPS protocol?

On the cmd line

Sdcli transport_protocol set

On the MMC, right click on the SDW instance and choose transport protocol settings and choose HTTP as the default and try.

Let me know if this works.
