SRDF SRA TechBook 9.1

I published the latest SRDF SRA TechBook version 9.1 today. You can get it here. A reminder that this TechBook only covers SRA 9.x. Prior SRA versions are in the original TB which is located in the documentation library. Besides the changes for 9.1, I added some sections which I have covered in this blog at some point. I think the most useful new information is in chapter 2 where I discuss Test Failover in more detail, including the different ways tests are run. The majority of questions I get from customers is about the testfailover operation and I’ve endeavored to include all the answers I’ve given over the years.

Another topic I address is targetless gold copy snapshots. We have functionality in the SRA to take gold copy snapshots before failover in order to retain a backup copy. Unfortunately it requires target devices to link to. With SnapVX, however, there isn’t a need for this. As I mentioned, I have targetless gold snapshots on the roadmap, but I provide a way this can be done today in the TB.

Just a note that the latest version will have a date of November 2019.

As I’m at VMworld Europe with limited time, I’ll leave it at that.

  1. Have any issues been found with the SRDF SRA 9.1 with VMware vCenter Server/vSphere 6.7 Update 3? I see the small print says this will not be certified until the next major SRA release, but any information on any potential issues would be really helpful.
