Recovery Steps

  1. Is the storage array and the remote storage array shown in the Details area connected through a switched fabric?

    • If yes, go to step 2.

    • If no, connect the storage array and remote storage arrays through a switched fabric, and then go to step 5.

  2. Are any SFP Failed problems being reported in the Problems area?

    • If yes, replace the failed SFP using the recovery steps in the SFP Failed procedure listed in the Problems area.

    • If no, go to step 3.

  3. Are the cables connecting the storage array to the fabric switch loose, disconnected, or visibly damaged?

    • If yes, correct the problem, and then go to step 5.

    • If no, go to step 4.

  4. Does the switch the storage array is connected to show any indications of a faulty port, SFP, or other failure?

    • If yes, correct the problem, and then go to step 5.

    • If no, contact your Technical Support Engineer.
