Can I Use Both Port Binding and Remote Replication on the Same Storage System?

1

No. Port binding is not intended for value-added services. Therefore, a storage system that is using port binding cannot use remote replication.

Why Are the Progresses Displayed on Two Storage Systems Not the Same During Remote Replicating?
Because the secondary array does not report the replication progress, the progress displayed on the secondary array is different from that on the primary array.

Average bandwidth of V3 remote replication
For the two links of asynchronous remote replication, one is the service link connecting the server and primary storage and the other is the replication link connecting the primary storage to the secondary storage. You need to consider average bandwidth and ensure that the average bandwidth of service links must be smaller than the average bandwidth of replication links. Otherwise, if data delivery is faster than data replication, data will be overstocked, resulting in remote replication interruption.

How to use a secondary LUN in a remote replication?
In a remote replication, the secondary LUN and the primary LUN form a pair, and the secondary LUN backs up data on the primary LUN. ? By default, the secondary LUN cannot be accessed (read or written) by a host. If a request is made to access data on the secondary LUN, you can create a virtual snapshot for the secondary LUN, and then map the virtual snapshot to the host for access. ? When a primary LUN encounters a critical error and the services are interrupted, you must perform the master/slave switchover to switch the secondary LUN to the primary LUN, and then map the new primary LUN to the host for access. NOTE: For details on how to perform a master/slave switchover, choose Help > Help Topics on the ISM, and view the related help information.
