FS System: Additional Steps Required for a Disruptive Upgrade for Systems with MaxRep3 (Doc ID 2113569.1)

Last updated on JUNE 08, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle FS1-2 Flash Storage System - Version All Versions to All Versions [Release All Releases]
Pillar Axiom Replication Engine (MaxRep) - Version 3.0 to Not Applicable [Release 3.0 to N/A]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

 In order to ensure a successful disruptive upgrade on FS1-2 systems that have MaxRep3 Engine(s), Protection Plans must be deactivated.

Changes

Previously it was advocated to unregister the MaxRep3 Engine.  But upon attempting to register the MaxRep3 Engine after the disruptive upgrade, customers would have to delete and then recreate all of their Protection Plans because the Array GUID has changed.
