    Modify mirror disks

      Howdy All,

      I have a SST6140 and with 3 trays and I would like to have my vdisks be tray-redundant. However, when I create a raid10 with 4 disks, it automatically chooses to mirror the disks in the same tray. Is there anyway I can change this? EX:

      ./sscs list -a SST6140r01 vdisk vdisk1
      Virtual Disk: vdisk1
      Status: Optimal
      State: Ready
      Number of Disks: 4
      RAID Level: 1
      Total Capacity: 557.793 GB
      Configured Capacity: 231.312 GB
      Available Capacity: 326.481 GB
      Array Name: SST6140r01
      Array Type: 6140
      Disk Type: Fibre Channel
      Security: non-secure
      Maximal Volume Size: 326.480 GB
      Associated Disks:
      Disk:               t85d01
      Disk:               t0d01
      Disk:               t85d06
      Disk:               t0d06

      [gt] root@otamon1 # ./sscs list -a SST6140r01 disk t85d01
      Tray: 85 Disk: t85d01
      Capacity: 279.396 GB
      Type: Fibre Channel
      Speed (RPM): 15015
      Status: Optimal
      State: Enabled
      Role: Data

      I do not have access to the CAM gui... CLI is necessary.

          When you create new vdisk you can not just say number of disk but select required disk.
          You need select correct option.

          IMHO - GUI is not problem as require just standart browser.

          In case CLI use:

          create -a <array-name> -p <pool-name> -d <disk-name[,disk-name...]> [-S] vdisk <virtual-disk-name>

          -d - for specify all required disk at correct order.

            Howdy Niki,

            Thank you for taking a look...

            In fact, I have tried a number of different combinations and they all result in the same way... regardless of the order I put the disks in the create, it will mirror the disks in the same tray.

            I have also tried creating a vdisk with just 2 disk, and then expanding it but the result is also the same.. it will mirror the disks in the same tray.

              Please show what command you use and what virtual disk was created after.
