Virtual Machine Storage System - Not service affecting

23 Aug 2010

We have resolved an issue with one of the TSM servers being unable to access the disk array via the alternate path and have logged a call with IBM to ascertain the reasons for the failover.

So far all looks OK. We have a couple of disks that are used for our virtual machine storage that have been moved onto the alternate path so we will try to ascertain what caused that.

Our monitoring system has reported that a number of our virtual Windows servers had problems with storage overnight. We are currently checking the actual state of the machines by hand to make sure they have recovered properly.
