What’s New in the OS
The enchancements available in HP 3PAR OS 3.2.1 deliver flash innovations for improved price
and performance in both All-flash and hybrid arrays. HP 3PAR OS 3.2.1 also extends high
availability between sites to Microsoft Windows environments and extends security to address
compliance requirements.
HP 3PAR OS 3.2.1 includes the following new and enhanced features:
•
Adaptive Flash Cache software
•
Express Writes software
•
Supports new 1.92 TB and 480 GB cMLC solid state drives available for HP 3PAR StoreServ
7000, 7450 and 10000 systems
•
Peer Persistence enhancements
•
Supports FIPS 140.2 compliance with new external secure key managers
•
Supports 920 GB FIPS Encrypted MLC SSD
•
Interoperability
HP 3PAR Adaptive Flash Cache
HP 3PAR Adaptive Flash Cache is a new feature that accelerates random read workloads by
improving the read response time and reducing the latency. This software feature effectively extends
controller cache by acting as a second level of read cache between HDDs in the array and the
controller cache. HP 3PAR Adaptive Flash Cache extends the system cache virtually—by leveraging
flash capacity from the array SSD tier—to dynamically and flexibly accelerate read intensive
6
HP 3PAR OS 3.2.1 Release Notes
workloads at no additional cost. Adaptive Flash Cache includes a simulation feature that helps
determine the amount of flash that a system requires for random read acceleration.
HP 3PAR Express Writes Software
HP 3PAR Express Writes Software is a write acceleration feature that optimizes CPU utilization to
increase throughput, deliver up to 30 percent more IOPS, and reduce latency by up to 20 percent
depending on the workload. Express Writes is enabled with transparent FC protocol optimizations.
These benefits extend to both spinning drives and flash-based media.
New cMLC drive support
New cMLC drive support is available with HP 3PAR OS 3.2.1. These drives, available in 1.92 TB
and 480 GB capacity for 3PAR StoreServ 7000, 7450 and 10000 models, reduce the $/GB of
solid state storage, making it more affordable for mainstream applications. These drives support
3PAR Adaptive Sparing which makes more space available to write data so that more capacity
is available at the system level in the same footprint.
HP 3PAR Peer Persistence Software
HP 3PAR Peer Persistence Software supports Microsoft Windows 2008 R2 and Microsoft Windows
2012 R2 Server and Hyper-V, in addition to the existing support for VMware. HP 3PAR Peer
Persistence software enables HP 3PAR StoreServ systems located at metropolitan distances to act
as peers to each other, presenting a nearly continuous storage system to hosts and servers connected
to them. This capability allows to configure a high availability solution between two sites or data
centers where failover and failback remains completely transparent to the hosts and applications
running on those hosts.
HP 3PAR OS 3.2.1 expands host protocol support to iSCSI and FCoE to all the supported Operating
Systems. For details, see the Single Point of Connectivity Knowledge for HP Storage Products
(SPOCK) website at http://www.hp.com/storage/spock.
HP 3PAR StoreServ FIPS 140-2 compliance
HP 3PAR StoreServ DAR Encryption support for new external key manager makes it possible to
comply with FIPS 140-2 encryption regulations. HP 3PAR OS 3.2.1 supports two new external key
managers and enables a new FIPS 140-2 validated 920 GB encrypted SSD. The new external
key managers are HP Enterprise Secure Key Manager (HP Atalla) 4.0 and SafeNet KeySecure
k450 and k150.
Interoperability
Host Operating System Support
HP 3PAR OS 3.2.1 supports Host Persona 15 for Microsoft Windows Server 2008, Microsoft
Windows Server 2008 R2, Microsoft Windows Server 2012, and Microsoft Windows Server
2012 R2.
HP 3PAR OS 3.2.1 is the last major HP 3PAR OS release to support Host Persona 1 and 2 with
these Windows versions. Subsequent HP 3PAR OS versions will exclusively use Host Persona 15
for Microsoft Windows Server 2008, Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2, Microsoft Windows
Server 2012, and Microsoft Windows Server 2012 R2.

Incorrectly zoned peer ports

If an array contains peer ports which are not configured correctly in
1:1 zoning relationship with the source array host ports, then
showport -c command might show port type as host even though
the port is functioning correctly.

A sysmgr segmentation fault in devices is resolved by adding additional
checks in cage monitoring.

Avoid segmentation fault.
There is a small time gap between region move completion task and
marking the task as complete. If a user removes a VV in this time gap
for a conversion/import/online copy, then the system manager tries
to dereference a NULL pointer when the task is marked as completed.

Make several commands
automatically retry in the tpdtcl
layer.
A VV has several kinds of locks to indicate that an operation is in
progress on any of the snapshots. If the operation changes the
snapshots, then VV first checks these locks. If it finds a lock, it will return
that the VV is busy. A delay is added by making several commands
in the tpdtcl layer try twice if it finds a lock on the VV. It will wait 5
seconds before the first retry and 10 seconds before the second retry.
This will give time for sysmgr to get the VV unlocked.
100611
Reduce the frequency of QW
unreachable alerts.
Under certain circumstances, customers might observe a significant
number of QW unreachable alerts due to communication failures
between HP 3PAR OS and the Quorum Witness Virtual Machine. These
alerts are generated due to some transient conditions on the network
such as dropped packets, or timeout due to network congestion. This
is resolved and HP 3PAR OS performs a number of retries before raising
the alert.
101298
Thin To Fat Conversions are made
more efficient.
Efficient import for online thin to fat conversions is turned on. This makes
sparse thin to fat conversions perform faster.
101399
The IMC might display incorrect
interface card port states for Card
1.
On an HP 3PAR StoreServ 7000 system, the IMC displays Card 0 port
states for both Card 0 and Card 1. Depending upon the cabling
configuration, Card 1 might differ from Card 0. In such cases, the
information displayed for Card 1 is incorrect.
101454
The showportpel compare

The showportpel compare command always returns an error. This
is resolved.

When setting up a remote copy
over fibre channel, there might be
an issue if the ports are configured
before taking them offline.
When setting up a remote copy over fibre channel, HP recommends
to take the ports offline before configuring them. To take the port to
be used for the FC RC configuration offline, use the controlport
offline command. After both ports report as offline, then to
configure each port to be an RCFC port, use the controlport
config rcfc -ct point - f command. The ports must report
that they are 'ready' and have a type of 'RCFC'. To confirm this, use
the showport -rcfc command.
Do not continue configuring the fibre channel remote copy ports until
both systems report the expected results:showport -rcfctype:
rcfcstate: readyshowrctransport -rcfcstate: new
If the expected states are not meet, take the ports back to the offline
state and start again.

The -httpport and -httpsport options are deprecated. These
options allow the user to set a non-default value for the CIM server's
http and https ports. These options are deprecated because the
StoreServe now blocks all connections to tcp/udp ports with
non-default values.
111687 Volume might not be created due to
"Size Not Supported" error.
Calling CreateOrModifyElementFromStoragePool to create
a fully provisioned volume might occasionally and incorrectly result
in a 4097 "Size Not Supported" error, even though the InPool has
enough capacity. This is resolved.

specify a domain when creating hosts, CPGs, or
host/volume sets. Otherwise, the objects will be

Premature maximum number of server
connections has been reached error.
When at least one user is already connected to the
target array via the WSAPI server and a new user
requests a session key, under certain circumstances,

the theoretical number of sessions is not reached.
Workaround: Remove all the sessions associated
with a currently connected WSAPI user to make room
for the requested new session key. To remove all the
sessions associated with a WSAPI user, use the CLI
command:removewsapisession -f -pat *
