MSA2040 + D2700 Enclosure - Server 2012R2 Hyper-V Cluster

Hi,

 

I have a two-node Server 2012 R2 Hyper-V Cluster running on HP DL380p Gen8 and MSA 2040 (FibreChannel)+D2700 Enclosure.

 

I have several Disks configured (2x Raid6, 4 Raid1) and I added the Raid6-Volumes (on MSA2040) to/as CSV - but when I try to add one of the Raid1Volumes (on D2700) as CSV I get an error:

 

Error Code: 0x08007139f

The Group or resource is not in the correct state to perform the requested Operation.

 

EventLog (Source FailoverClustering; ID:5144):

While adding the disk ('Volume3') to Cluster Shared Volumes, setting explicit snapshot diff area association for volume ('\\?\Volume{811afdcd-2ebd-4475-8e78-a86d9ab991fe}\') failed with error 'HrError(0x8007139f)'. The only supported software snapshot diff area association for Cluster Shared Volumes is to self.

 

Is there a support-Issue for Server 2012 R2 and D2700 enclosure?

 

Regards

Christian

[ Edited ]

The D2700 is connected to the MSA2040, right?

So the difference must be in the vdisk/volumes settings (I assume you created a visk only for some disks in the D2700) - so compare the vdisk and volumes settings.


Hope this helps!

Thanks for your reply.

 

Yes - the MSA2040 is connected via FC to the FC-switches - Server 2012 R2 MPIO is configured correctly

The D2700 is connected to the MSA2040 via SAS.

all v-disks are configured with the same settings. (see Attachments)

Re: MSA2040 + D2700 Enclosure - Server 2012R2 Hyper-V Cluster

If you do

# show volumes

from the MSA Cli, do you see "snap pool" or something different from "standard" in CLASS?

Hope this helps!

Torsten.

Hi,

 

no - there is Class = standard for every vdisk:

But it looks different for volume3:

Re: MSA2040 + D2700 Enclosure - Server 2012R2 Hyper-V Cluster

Looks like the "Type" is "N/A" - this is the problem.

Could you again do

show volumes Volume3

to ensure there is no problem with cut and paste?

I don't think there is a way to change this from "N/A" to standard other then re-creating the volume.

Hope this helps!

Torsten.

I saw, there is no ChunkSize defined for the vDisks which are having problems.

Is it best practise to set the chunkSize for vdisks to 512k for Hyper-V Cluster?

Re: MSA2040 + D2700 Enclosure - Server 2012R2 Hyper-V Cluster

I'm not sure now to which column the "N/A" belongs...

However, if the chunk size is not modified during vdisk creation, it is default at 512.

Do

show vdisks vD3_R1_146_01

I would just delete the volume and the vdisk and start over, creating this vdisk again, then create the volume again.
There is something wrong with it.

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

This is OK for RAID 1 - I missed that, sorry.

However, if "N/A" in the CLI output is the "TYPE", (try to un-wrap the output while viewing to confirm), then this is a problem ...


Hope this helps!

Vdiks = vD3_R1_146_01

Name = Volume3

Size = 146

Serialnumber= 00c....

WR Policy = write-back

Cache = Standard

Read Ahead Size = Adaptive

Type = standard

Now it looks different. It was a copy'n'paste problem only in the earlier post?

So the array should be good. If you have the same problem with all the volumes, I would search on the server side now (I have no clue about Hyper-V, sorry).

Notice this from the firmware release notes:

ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softlib2/software1/pubsw-linux/p208182240/v91314/rn_msa_2040_controller.html

Important firmware notes

HP recommends that you update the Windows cache by using the cmdlet, Update-StorageProviderCache -DiscoveryLevel Full -Name <storageProviderName> manually, after attempting any storage provision operations that use the MSA management interface.

HP recommends that you use the MSA management interface (Storage Management Utility or Command Line Interface) to modify volume mappings, delete volumes, or modify volume names. Manually update Windows cache by using the cmdlet, Update-StorageProviderCache -DiscoveryLevel Full -Name <storageProviderName>.


Hope this helps!

Torsten.
