SIM Cluster 8.3 Snapmirror


Hi All


i am trying to simulate a production and DR site using snapmirror and Veam Backup


we currently have a FAS8020 as production but want to simulate the process for Veeam to use the snapmirror


i have created the cluster 8.3 simulated cluster in our productions site and licenced it by following the guide and adding all the licences - which has worked well


i am now placing another cluster 8.3 simulater in our DR site - but i guess i need to change the system ID to be able to do this? my only problem is i cannot find a second cluster node licence?


i am using this on the primary site




but after changing the setenv i cannot use this licence again or find one i could use site this site



is it possible for me to do this somehow? i need to show this off so we can discuss the possibility another FAS8020 in out DR environment


Re: SIM Cluster 8.3 Snapmirror


there is no need to change the system ID, just give each cluster a different name and you'll be fine. All licenses will work on all simulators without chaging any sys iDs


P.S Please give Kudos if you feel this answer has helped you! 🙂
