What’s New in the OS
The enchancements available in 3PAR OS 3.2.1 deliver flash innovations for improved price and
performance in both All-flash and hybrid arrays. 3PAR OS 3.2.1 also extends high availability
between sites to Microsoft Windows environments and extends security to address compliance
requirements.
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 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
•
Supports 16Gb Fibre Channel Target
HPE 3PAR Adaptive Flash Cache
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. 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 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.

HPE 3PAR OS 3.2.1 Release Notes
HPE 3PAR Express Writes Software
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 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.
HPE 3PAR Peer Persistence Software
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. 3PAR Peer
Persistence software enables 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.
3PAR OS 3.2.1 expands host protocol support to iSCSI and FCoE to all the supported Operating
Systems. For details, see the SPOCK website at http://www.hpe.com/storage/spock.
HPE 3PAR StoreServ FIPS 140-2 compliance
3PAR StoreServ DAR Encryption support for new external key manager makes it possible to
comply with FIPS 140-2 encryption regulations. 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 Hewlett Packard Enterprise Secure Key Manager (HP Atalla) 4.0 and SafeNet
KeySecure k450 and k150.
Interoperability
Host Operating System Support
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.
3PAR OS 3.2.1 is the last major 3PAR OS release to support Host Persona 1 and 2 with these
Windows versions. Subsequent 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.

Make several commands
automatically retry in the tpdtcl

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 system manager to get the VV
unlocked.

When setting up a remote copy

before taking them offline.
When setting up a remote copy over fibre channel, Hewlett Packard
Enterprise 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:

An issue in the tunesys command causes chunklets to swap between

combination of a redesign of the tunenodech command, and a low-level
mechanism to specifically disallow chunklet movement to specified disks.

What’s New in the OS
3PAR OS 3.2.1 MU1 offers in-line deduplication on all the systems with GEN4 ASIC only for an
SSD tier.
Thin Deduplication and Thin Clones software are licensed as a part of the 3PAR Operating
System Software Suite with no additional charge.
3PAR Thin Deduplication
After upgrading to 3PAR OS 3.2.1 MU1, customers with an SSD CPG can provision TDVVs(Thinly
Deduped Virtual Volume).
With 3PAR OS 3.2.1 MU1, customers with a Dynamic Optimization license can covert to and
from a TDVV (from and to both Thinly Provisioned volumes and Full volumes).
With 3PAR OS 3.2.1 MU1, a thin deduplication estimation functionality is available. The dedupe
estimation function provides a way to determine the expected space savings following the
deduplication of existing Thinly Provisioned Volumes. Run the estimator on-line against any
volume, independent from the storage tier the volume resides in, as long as the volume is a
TPVV.
Snapshots of TDVVs are dedup aware, provided the snap space resides in the same CPG as
the base volume.
Thinly Deduped volumes are fully supported with Remote Copy. However, Remote Copy is not
dedup aware meaning all write data is sent across the RC transport to the target array and id
deduped when it is applied at the target array.
For more details on Thin Deduplication, see the Thin Technologies White Paper available at :
http://h20195.www2.hp.com/v2/GetPDF.aspx%2F4AA3-8987ENW.pdf.
Known Thin Deduplication limitations in 3PAR OS 3.2.1 MU1 are as follows:
•
CPGs with TDVV volumes cannot be part of an Adaptive Optimization configuration.
•
The maximum number of TDVVs per CPG is 256; there is no limit on the number of TDVV
snapshots.
•
Peer Motion is currently not supported for TDVVs.
•
Online Import from EVA and EMC Storage directly to TDVV volumes is not supported. As
a workaround it’s possible to import to a TPVV and then covert to TDVV.

Description
108545
Under certain environments, the system manager process might restart during disk drive failure
handling or drive firmware upgrade. This was caused by access to transient drive inquiry response
data.
109638
System Manager terminates unexpectedly after a Remote Copy volume dismiss operation using
keepSnap option and no snapshot exists.
114244
Loss of host persona capabilities after upgrading to 3PAR OS 3.2.1 GA from 3PAR OS 3.1.2 MU5
or 3PAR OS 3.1.2 MU3 + P41.
114409
On StoreServ 7440 systems, each SAS initiator port on a node can support a maximum of 10
daisy-chained cages, with 24 drives in each cage. If 11 cages are installed with drives, the
unsupported number of drives on the port could make the node become unresponsive. When
replacing an existing cage of a fully populated port, ensure that the eleventh cage does not contain
any drives before connecting it. After connecting the cage, existing drives from the cage being
replaced can be migrated to the new cage. When all of the drives are moved, the cage being replaced
can be safely removed from the back end topology.
114502
If the cluster has more than 4k volumes and is downgraded to a version lower than 3PAR OS 3.1.3,
the downgrade succeeds, but volumes over the 4k limit show as internal_consistency_error.
114689
An incomplete remote copy transition log cleanup causes unexpected controller node restart.
114947
The total capacity of the volumes in a Peer Persistence Remote Copy group is limited to 32 TB.

System manager halts because the locks are dropped after the tpd_rw_owned command. The
command fails to check the thread id in the field mode. When the thread corresponding to the lock
attempts to drop the same lock, system manager halts.

117123
The version of Bash is updated to resolve the vulnerabilities CVE-2014-6271 and CVE-2014-7169
commonly known as “shellshock”.
117687
The SysRq invocation through the console is disabled to avoid any unintentional or incorrect use
which can cause problems.
118477
While performing VV provisioning conversions on volumes greater than 1 TB, the VV offsets might
not be calculated correctly.

Issue ID
Description
114409
On HP StoreServ 7440 systems, each SAS initiator port on a controller node can support a maximum
of ten daisy-chained cages, with 24 drives in each cage. If an 11th cage is installed with drives, the
unsupported number of drives on the port could result in a node uncontrolled restart.
Workaround: When replacing an existing cage of a fully populated port, ensure that the eleventh
cage does not contain any drives before connecting it. After connecting the cage, existing drives
from the cage being replaced can be migrated to the new cage. When all of the drives have been
moved, the cage being replaced can be safely removed from the backend topology.
115470
Do not configure the RC link when prompted by OOTB. Remote Copy interfaces must be configured
using the controlport rcip command after OOTB completes .
The cimserver process could fail after code upgrade completes, resulting in loss of SMI-S
communication.
Workaround: After the upgrade is complete, to restore the communication issue the following CLI
commands:

Description
116472
When in SLD configuration, remotecopygroups representation shows only one target instead
of two. This will be resolved in later release, but it will not be backward compatible with the
current remotecopygroups representation. A client should therefore refrain from querying for
/remotecopygroups in 3PAR OS 3.2.1 GA and 3PAR OS 3.2.1 MU1.

Modifications to the OS
The following items are addressed in this release:
42
Issue ID
Description
84984
Resolved I/O stall issue on CN1000Q card.
101366
This improves the handling of RTPG (Remote Target Port Group) commands by handling them
in the kernel of the 3PAR OS. This makes the system robust and frees up system manager
resources to handle other events in a more timely manner.
104133
This resolves an issue where an "Active VLUN Limit Exceeded" alert might be raised prematurely
and repeatedly.
106850
An issue where VV physical copy, snapshot promotion, and VV removal overlaps in such a way
that the temporary snapshot used by the physical copy process is abandoned and can not be
removed.
113885
When the EKM (External Key Manager) user is changed on a system with Data At Rest Encryption
enabled, the new user must have permissions to the current key on the External Key Manager.
3PAR OS 3.2.1 MU2 Release Notes
Issue ID
Description
113951
Enable CHAP when using CN1000Q at the host side.
115658
Resolved an issue related to removing a cage from the system which is disconnected on both
the ports.
116189
While processing the list of VVs to collect stats, the code exits without processing the rest of the
VVs in the list upon encountering a VV which is deleted or closed. This in turn displays incorrect
values by statvv command.
116362
On very rare occasions, a write to flash by NEMOE can fail during upgrade. A retry operation
might cause an overall command failure. The StoreServ waits for the response to the current
command.
116574
Cache buffers are freed after a write failure to Peer Motion volumes.
116686
Support for Red Hat Directory Server 9 as LDAP server.
117185
System Write Cache Availability might not be cleared even after resolving the issue.
117388
Reuse the reclaimed pages generated by GC for new writes. This avoids the overhead to free
those reclaimed pages which cause performance issues.
117480
An incorrect behavior in ASIC driver which causes correctable link errors to become fatal.
118358
If both I/O modules of an 3PAR StoreServ 7000 system cage are rebooted concurrently, this can
cause system manager to become unresponsive.
118824
The I/O error reporting logic is changed to consistently report SCSI BUSY status when an array
in a Peer Motion configuration is overloaded.
118962
When issuing the setrcopygroup failover command on a group that has more than one target,
use the -t target option.
119815
An unwanted usage of memory in fibre channel port device discovery is corrected.
119921
Support is added for following on Emulex HBA model LPe16002:

120179
Resolved an issue whereby a system with more than 1000 LDs fails to optimize data layout with
the startao command and prevents valid data from being displayed in the srstatld command
with the -cpg filter option.
120319
Prevents host I/O stall during upgrade from 3PAR OS 3.2.1 GA with Remote Copy.
120788
A performance issue for Thin Conversions is resolved.
120838
Slow freeing up of unreferenced pages in dedup store causes space used by dedup store to grow
excessively. This is resolved by making space free up operations parallel and asynchronous.
121213
Maximum number of VV limit for 7440c system is changed as follows:
• maximum number of virtual volume IDs = 64K
• maximum number of virtual volumes = 64K
• maximum number of virtual volume default base = 32K
• earlier maximum number of virtual volume IDs = 32K
121239
If a virtual volume (VV) block operation exits when the dedup garbage collector is scanning
deduplication VVs for referenced pages and the block operation completes before all the dedup
VVs are scanned by the garbage collector, it can cause valid and referenced pages to be
unallocated and overwritten. A timing window that can cause data inconsistency in volumes that
are deduplicated is closed.
121467
The limitation where a checkvv -dedup_dryrun does not execute on a volume with snapshot
removed.

Issue ID
Description
113472
If an ESX is added first to vCenter before creating a host entry on array, then VASA provider
cannot find ESX host name and fails to create a new virtual machine or bind an existing VVol-based
virtual machine.
Workaround: Use either of the following methods:
• Complete set up as follows:
1. Create host entry for ESX on the array.
2. Add ESX host to vCenter server
• Register VP again. If ESX is added after VP is registered, register VASA Provider from vCenter
interface again.
• Restart VP. If ESX is added after VP is registered, go to the array and issue command
stopvasa and then command startvasa.

What’s New in the OS
3PAR File Persona Software Suite
As a licensed feature of the 3PAR OS, File Persona enables a rich set of file protocols and core
file data services on an 3PAR StoreServ system. It inherits the industry leading architecture and
Block Persona benefits of 3PAR StoreServ. It extends the spectrum of primary storage workloads
natively addressed by 3PAR StoreServ from virtualization, databases, and applications via the
Block Persona to also include client workloads such as home directory consolidation,
group/department shares, and corporate shares via the File Persona – all with truly Converged
Controllers, truly agile capacity, and truly unified management.
File Persona is supported on the 3PAR StoreServ 7200c, 7400c, 7440c, and 7450c systems. It
provides the following features:
58
•
Rich file protocols including SMB 3.0, 2.1, 2.0, and 1.0 plus NFSv4.0, and v3.0
•
Object Access API via a REST API for cloud applications
•
Transparent failover for clients via SMB 3.0 and NFS
•
Performance acceleration leveraging Adaptive Flash Cache
•
Data compaction via Thin Provisioning
3PAR OS 3.2.1 MU3 Release Notes
•
Data optimization via the separately licensed Adaptive Optimization and Dynamic Optimization
•
Point-in-time File Store snapshots
•
Support for third party antivirus software, network share and NDMP-based backup/restore
•
Disaster recovery replication via the separately licensed Remote Copy
•
Security of FIPS 140-2 validated Data At Rest Encryption when using self encrypting drives
•
Active Directory, Folder Redirection, Offline Files, Roaming User Profiles, DFS-Namespace,
and Microsoft Management Console for Microsoft-based IT infrastructure
•
LDAP and local user authentication for Linux-based IT infrastructure
•
3PAR StoreServ Management Console (SSMC) interface with a performance dashboard,
custom reports capability and the 3PAR OS CLI
Support for cross protocol access
This release also introduces limited support for cross protocol access to a corporate share within
a single File Store. The support includes scenarios where one protocol is configured to be the
read/writer protocol and others are configured as read-only, using Active Directory for
authentication with RFC2307 user mapping enabled. The specific supported scenarios within a
given File Store are as follows:
•
Share a folder over SMB protocol as read/write and with NFS as read-only
•
Share a folder over NFS protocol as read/write and with SMB as read-only
•
Share a folder for Object Access as read/write and with SMB and NFS as read-only
When configuring shares through SSMC or the CLI, a warning is displayed when configuring a
second protocol for sharing within a given File Store. Instructions are provided for proper
configuration of cross protocol access along with the warning.
IMPORTANT: If any file shares are configured via MMC (Microsoft Management Console) by
administrators, that configuration is not preceded by a warning. MMC can override the SMB
share access configured via SSMC or CLI.
To learn more about the cross-protocol feature, see the Setup Guide for HP 3PAR File Persona
in a Cross-protocol Environment.
WARNING! Do not configure the write access through multiple protocols. Doing so might result
in one of the following scenarios:
•
When a writer from a different protocol creates files and folders, the ACLs on those objects
might not be what the users would normally expect. This happens due to the interaction of
SMB ACLs and POSIX mode bits and differing inheritance models. To work around this,
manually apply permissions after creating objects. To recover from this, the secondary writer
must be removed and the ACLs must be manually corrected from the primary writer.
•
NFS users might see unexpected errors when operating on objects that have complex SMB
ACLs. For instance, a mkdir request by a client might return an invalid argument
message even though the directory has been created.
•
If users from different protocols attempt to modify the same file at the same time, the content
modified by one user might not be preserved and it might be overwritten by the other user.
Currently, locking on the files is supported only within the context of a single protocol.
•
Based on cache settings of protocols, changes made via one protocol might not be
immediately reflected to the other protocols.
What’s New in the OS
59
Known issues with cross protocol support
Issue ID
56731
Description
If you try to edit the same file at the same time from SMB and NFS, data corruption occurs.
Workaround: Avoid sharing data between SMB and POSIX clients. Instead, use the correct
permissions; that is, only the owner of a document can write to it, and everyone has read access.
Even with the correct permissions, because SMB uses oplocks to cache the document content
on the SMB client, the cached content in the SMB client machine might not match the server.
The updates by the NFS client do not break the oplocks. If data corruption occurs, the document
can be restored from backup only.
56732
File permissions created by cross protocol I/O such as SMB, HTTP, and NFS are different for
each protocol. There are specific combinations of ACLs that can be made to work for R/W of
one protocol and R/O of another. For details about such scenarios, see the Setup Guide for HP
3PAR File Persona in a Cross-protocol Environment.
56734
Inherited access control entries created by SMB are not transferred properly over the NFS
protocol. Over the NFS protocol, create mode and umask play a role in permission inheritance.
Workaround: Change an NFS users umask to match desired permissions.
57652
If both NFS and SMB share refer to the same file system path, then the mkdir command on
the NFSv3 mount from client returns the error mkdir: cannot create directory
`<dir_name>': invalid argument but the directory is still created. Cross protocol multi
writer access to the same File Store is not supported as of this release.
58085
For files accessed via SMB, file search is not case-sensitive. If multiple files are written to the
same directory with the names differing only in case via NFS or Object Access shares, trying to
perform an operation (delete/modify/rename/move) on one of the files via SMB might result in
operating on a different instance of the file instead.
VMware VVol support
Support for VMware Virtual Volumes(VVols) is also provided with HP 3PAR OS 3.2.1 MU2 Patch
12. HP offers the following benefits through the integration of VMware VVols and 3PAR StoreServ:
•
Greater application control and efficiency with differentiated data services
•
Rapid enablement with zero configuration VMware VVols deployment and startup
•
Enhanced performance by offloading data services
•
Simplified, policy-based management
NOTE: Users of VMware VVol datastores may notice a performance difference between using
a traditional VMFS-based datastore and a VVol datastore when cloning virtual machines. When
executing a clone operation using a traditional datastore through a Fibre Channel connection,
the data copy operation performed by the ESXi host is treated strictly as data Input / Output (I/O).
When executing a clone operation using a VVol datastore, the clone process is managed at the
array level. While the array does not limit the amount of data copy operations performed by the
ESXi hosts, the array does limit the amount of simultaneous clone operations when performed
by the array directly.

3PAR OS 3.2.1 MU3 Release Notes
Modifications to the OS
The following items are addressed in this release:
Issue ID
Description
106651
Resolved an issue in which a region move on a remote node could cause instability. All region
moves are stable with this release.
108932
When ldck failures are added to a retry queue, the whole queue is retried after a period of time
instead of just the head of the queue.
111310
Resolves an issue in which, for Windows Peer Persistence support, the recovery steps after an
automatic failover required a manual disk rescan from Windows Disk Management to allow
failback to the original configuration (performed after the setrcopygroup recover command
is issued and before the replication is switched back to its original direction). This is no longer
required.
113514
Temperature Under_Warning_Threshold alerts are changed to informational events.
113898
Provide support for DOPA0920S5xnNMRI and DOPA0480S5xnNMRI drives
114460
This resolves a general protection fault that can occur in the SCSI code when running the
updatevv command for a VV multiple times in a short period of time.
114947
The volume capacity limit for DR operations to 256 TB.
115302
When a remote copy volume is undergoing a region move, we now wait 5 minutes before retrying.
If the volume is not currently involved in a region move, the retry timeout is the default.
116727
Very rarely, when using the remote CLI client on Windows, it may hang when exiting. It gets
deadlocked trying to close the socket.
118374
Resolved an issue where after a powerfail recovery, the metadata consistency check process
might incorrectly determine a volume metadata as inconsistent.
119145
tpdtcl process will abort if the VV names passed to statvv/histvv are separated by commas
instead of spaces.
120838
Resolved an issue where slow freeing up of unreferenced pages in dedup store causes space
used by dedup store to grow excessively.
120895
Resolved an issue where for 3PAR OS 3.2.1 GA or later, the checkhealth host command
becomes unresponsive if the SAN provides incomplete data returned from the showportdev
fcfabic n:s:p call.
122840
Invalid Region Move VL map entries are detected and removed from the TOC. An alert is
generated to inform that the issue is resolved. Events are generated with specific details.
123004
Resolved an issue where an AC power disruption can cause a hard drive communication problem
and the disks do not spin up after resumption of power.
123438
Provide support for HSCP0920S5xnFMRI drive
123805
When the target port firmware runs out of jumbo frame buffers, it sends out pause frames.
Resolved an issue where in some cases, due to insufficient pause time new incoming frames
are dropped causing performance degradation.
124117
Ensures that switching from ramlog to mirror memory log during node up integration is successful
regardless of the number of entries per volume.
124648, 126693
Resolved reclamation of unreferenced space in systems with dedup volumes so that snapshot
creation and deletion during such activity is tolerated and does not cause the space reclamation

1 an issue where the system manager process might not restart when a StoreServ cluster is
upgraded to 3PAR OS 3.2.1 or later.
125866
Resolves an issue where virtual volumes cannot be removed from 3PAR array even if retention
time and expiration time is over.
126103
When the system is under heavy load and especially when AO tasks were executing, the task
manager sometimes failed to process completed tasks. The first result was that several completed
tasks disappeared when using the showtask command to see the completed tasks, which made
it impossible to see if the disappeared tasks had failed or succeeded. The second result was
that an alert was issued each time the task manager failed to process the completed tasks. The
alert provided correct notification of the problem, but created concern about missing tasks. The
task manager now correctly processes all completed tasks regardless of the general load and
the AO load on the system. All completed tasks are successfully displayed when showtask is
issued. No more task manager alerts are generated due to this issue.
126112
If a power event causes a two node system to go down and a hardware failure prevents one of
the nodes from coming back after the power is restored, the system does not start. This is
resolved and if the second node does not join the cluster 30 minutes after the first node boot, it
proceeds with recovery automatically.

Resolved mismanagement of a token cluster mask that can result in an invalid token consistency
check across nodes.
126313
Resolved an issue in which cloning a running VVol-based virtual machine could fail.
126568
There is no limitation on the number of LUNs to be exported to a given host initiator at one time.
The earlier limitation allowed only 1024 LUNs to be exported to a given host initiator at one time.
126837
Resolved an issue in which leaving target commands in the rejectq that have waited past the
time expiration checks in qlfcg2_thread_abort_monitor(), and completing it from the target
command queue without a forced abort in the same background task, leads to stale SCSCI
commands that are freed and their IDs removed. The same freed SCSCI commands had the
potential of being reactivated from the target rejectq if earlier circumstance with various fw queue
depth was put there earlier, causing use after free, resulting in, for example, a SCSCI command
ID mismatch assert failure, causing node uncontrolled restart.

Resolves an issue where a single CLI session accepts the updatesnapspace -dedup_stats
command only once successfully.
128104
Resolved an issue in which a virtual machine, replicated using VMware host-based replication,
or migrated from a 3PAR VVol storage container, and that VM has multiple snapshots, the
destination VM may have missing data. The VASA Provider incorrectly reports differences
between consecutive RO (read-only) snapshots.

In some scenarios when the amount of physical disks is small, if zero detect and dedup operations
are run simultaneously the system became extremely busy. Zero detect has a limited amount
of memory to use. When the available memory is used, zero detect requests continue to fill up
the request queues. This prevents other messages from getting into the request queues and
causes host I/O to stop. This is resolved.

Resolved an issue where freeing or accessing invalid memory address causes the program
failure.
131115
CPG dedup ratio that is displayed by showcpg -space command is slightly higher than its
actual size. This is because CPG dedup ratio is calculated without data size stored in private
space of tdvvs and snapshots.
Data size stored in private space is now included in CPG dedup ratio calculation. After upgrading
to this release, CPG dedup ratio may be displayed lower than it was on the previous release.

daemon to process the messages after the upgrade is complete.
132748
Resolved an issue similar to issue 125105, but for customers using Windows Server OS inside
a VMware virtual machine. The VASA provider could report inaccurate space allocation for a
VVol to the vSphere environment. This could cause data-inconsistency when a VVol-based
virtual machine is migrated a 3PAR-based VVol storage container to another vSphere datastore.
133407
Resolved an issue in which admitting a volume to perform migration from EMC to 3PAR
sometimes failed. The error was seen in the eventlog: mcall_admitpd() Not allowing admitpd on
Emulex generated wwn 0x0A2B5F92AC0FDF11. The issue was resolved by removing the check
for the 3PAR vendor ID pattern in the World Wide Name (WWN) to allow volumes with
EMC-generated WWN to be admitted.
133408
Resolved an issue in which, when admitting a volume to perform migration, the admit operation

Failed upgrades leave the scheduler in the paused state. If an upgrade fails, the scheduler can
be left in a state such that attempts to create new scheduled tasks will fail with "Error: Cannot
create new scheduled task, system is undergoing an online upgrade" until the upgrade completes.
You must resolve the problem that is preventing the upgrade from completing in order to continue.
Once the upgrade completes, the scheduler will be resumed.

On systems where the pinned data Logical Disks (pdsld*.*) have been removed, the system
may handle situations poorly where the fault tolerance of other LDs is exceeded. In the worst
case, this can include loss of the offending data. Because the pinned data LDs are created
automatically and cannot be easily removed, the risk of hitting this issue is minimal.
115477
There is a known issue in which the array can freeze in the context of a Registered State Change
Notification (RSCN) storm, where the name server in the switch sends many back-to-back
notifications of topology changes in very rapid succession. These RSCN storms appear to be
caused by switch problems that report one or more ports going away and coming back frequently,
when the ports are still present. In other cases, they are being caused by host ports that do go
away and come back very rapidly. Not all RSCN storms cause the array to freeze.

124868
During large region moves and Logical Disk (LD) mirroring, a node uncontrolled restart condition
is possible. This issue is caused when a node borrows too many credits causing a waiter's list
to be used. A mismatch in integer size causes a truncation of bits resulting in the wrong number
of bits being read. Normally this does not cause any abnormal behavior, but under heavy load
it can cause too many waiters to be allocated, resulting an uncontrolled restart on a single node.

is replaced with a space character internally. For example, user^name is changed to user
name in HP-SMB. HP-SMB recommends not to use the '^' character as a legal Windows name
character because it is interpreted as a space character causing name searches to fail
unexpectedly or be resolved to an unintended name. HP-SMB does not provide an exported

NFS clients can enumerate exports from all Virtual File Servers through any of the Virtual File
Server IPs active on a given node. Connect to the exports through the IP address specifically
associated with a given export's Virtual File Server. Otherwise, it will lead to failures in migration
of FPGs using the setfpg -primarynode and setfpg -failover commands.

Concurrent operations to update and query local user or group information need to ensure
automatic transactions. Avoid modification to local user or group during the local authentication.
Retry the authentication if it fails during parallel administrative operations.

When reaching a hard capacity quota, the behavior for the last written file hitting the limit varies
by protocol.
51034
LDAP lookup failures might not provide correct file owner when looking up file owners.
Workaround: To resolve this, clear the keying with the nfsidmap -c command on the client.
51653
All exports from the NFS server perspective are per node, not per Virtual File Server (VFS). The
administrator must configure the client properly for VFS separation.
Do not use the Linux showmount -e command but use the output of the 3PAR admin tools.
For NFS clients, do not use automount with a host map.
52014
For systems with a large number of FPGs, VFS IP addresses, and shares; changing the current
owner of a set of FPGs to a new node can involve shutdown, relocation, and bring up and
initialization of a lot of pieces and a large amount of state.
For SMB3 clients using persistent handles, persistent handle file state is maintained for seamless
failover so they can continue from their previous state. The timeout for how long the client will
keep trying to reconnect to a persistent handle and how long the server maintains state waiting
for a client reconnect is 5 minutes. Heavily loaded and heavily configured systems whose FPGs
take more than 5 minutes to complete failover operations causes loss of persistent handle state
on the SMB3 clients.
52387, 55268
Under scenarios where a significant block workload exists, FPGs (File Provisioning Group) for
a node may be automatically migrated to the partner node. This can lead to a temporary disruption
in client access, depending on the protocols in use. The load on the system must be reduced
either through the addition of more hardware (disks/nodes) or by the reduction of client workload.
The FPGs must be returned to their primary node using the setfpg -failover command. For
the purposes of this issue, significant block workload is defined as either of the following:
• Service times of greater than 150 ms, as reported by the statvlun command
• Occurrences of delayed acks (DelAck), as reported by the statcmp command

When an VFS (Virtual File Server) does not have any VFS IP address assigned to it, none of
the SMB shares on it are accessible by clients. However, the enumeration of shares by the 3PAR
management GUI can see inconsistent lists of shares in cases where VFS exists but has no IP
address associated with it. You can use the 3PAR management GUI to add a new SMB share
on VFS with no IP address on it. This newly added SMB share is seen in the enumeration, but
other shares are invisible until an IP address is added to the VFS. If File Persona services is
restarted or rebooted, VFS shares without IP addresses are seen. SMB never presents anything
inconsistent to SMB clients since they can only access the shares by an IP address. The
inconsistent share list is only visible to the 3PAR management GUI, and it becomes fully consistent
again when an IP address is added to the VFS.
52700
If the external network link is down on the backup node for an FPG when the current node has
a failure, the FPG will still be failed over. This scenario can occur if the nodes are attached to
only a single switch and the switch goes down or when all network links on a backup node are
down at the time a failover is being processed.
Workaround: After the network links are operational again, to bring the FPG command back to
its proper owner, issue the setfpg -failover command .
52920
If the external network link is down during FPG activation, VFS IPs are not automatically activated
when the link gets operational. This condition might likely occur either during boot time or during
failover time.
Workaround: After the link is operational, if you can not ping the VFS IP, deactivate the FPGs
and activate them again using following commands:
• setfpg -deactivate
• setfpg -activate
To fail over to the partner node, use the setfpg -failover command. If the link is operational,
the network activation is successful now.
53617
When using Symantec VSEs, attempting to scan files larger than 2 GB may cause the scan
engine to be reported as DOWN. To avoid this issue, set a policy to exclude scanning of files
larger than 2 GB using the excludesize option of the setfsav pol command.
53648
Unexpected failover of FPGs may occur while running a maximum intensity benchmark workload.
If this occurs, an alert is generated. The FPGs must be failed back to their original node with the
setfpg -failover command.
54480
After a power failure, some FPGs might not be activated automatically.
After the VVs supporting the FPG are in a normal state, manually request activation of the FPG
through SSMC or by using setfpg -activate <fpgname> command.
54549
Depending on the network infrastructure, synchronous network I/O connections might reset in
the event of failover before completing the failover operation.
54903
The configured LDAP server for use by File Persona may become unreachable from a subset
of the nodes. If this occurs, and users are unable to authenticate to shares exported from a FPG
activated on such a node, this may be recovered by issuing a stopfs <node> request followed
by a startfs -enable <node> request to restart File Persona services for that node. After
restarting the File Persona services, the affected FPGs must be moved back to their assigned
node with the setfpg -failover command.
55355
If there are more than 3000 quarantine files in a VFS (Virtual File Server) or File Store, only the
first 3000 quarantine files are listed in the exported file and processed for MOVE, DELETE, or
RESET operation at a time. After completing the quarantine for these files, next set of 3000 files
(or less, whichever higher) is displayed and processed.
55858
After the upgrade process, the tapes are not visible. You cannot take backup and restore the

Configuration Backup operation fails for VFS with names greater than 212 characters.
57329
A rare condition can occur in which some nodes lose the ability to communicate with the LDAP
server, resulting in failure to authenticate LDAP users.
Workaround: Use stopfs/startfs on the nodes where communication to the LDAP server
failed:
1. Execute stopfs <node>.
2. Execute startfs -enable <node>
3. Execute setfpg -failover <fpg> for each FPG in a degraded state whose primary node
(as seen in showfpg -d) is node <node>, to return the FPGs to their primary node.
57333
If a share of the .admin File Store is set up to copy the configuration backup file to the VFS, the
restore might fail if that share is still in place and the share conflicts with a share being restored.
Workaround: Before attempting a restore, delete all the shares. If the issue has already occurred,
delete the FPG and try the restore again.

Acquiring share access permission through secondary LDAP group membership is not supported.
Secondary groups can be used to provide access for local and active directory users. For LDAP
users, the primary group must be used to provide access, or the user must be explicitly given
the permission. Folder ACLs can be used to limit access to users who might otherwise be provided
access through share permissions.

Before performing an upgrade, use the showfpg command to verify that all FPGs are in a normal
state. Do not attempt the upgrade if FPGs are degraded and an earlier alert such as Forced
umount of FPG pls_pssiv failed on host node1fs. is received.
58468
For FPGs activated on the active File Persona node, an empty File Store cannot be deleted if
there is another File Store under the same VFS that has shares and its name contains the name
of the File Store to be deleted. For example, if File Store with name abcd is to be deleted and
another File Store name with shares is abcde, then File Store abcd cannot be deleted.
Workaround: Failover the FPG to its alternate node and try deleting the File Store. Failover the
FPG back to its primary node.

When changing the setting of RFC 2307 ID mapping, UID and GID values might be cached from
the previous setting leading to wrong values written to disk.
Workaround: During initial configuration of file services:
1. Configure RFC2307.
2. Join the nodes to AD.
3. Create shares.
Set RFC2307 before any other configuration.
If RFC2307 is changed after shares have been created and files have been written to disk, the
system administrator must review and modify every ACL on the disk, including the share
permissions ACL.
HP does not recommend changing RFC2307 after files have been written to disk as this can
results in loss of user access.
59259
After deleting an AD user from the group, user can still modify the contents of a folder which has
modify permissions for the group. It takes time for changes to reflect in the entire network.
Workaround: HP recommends that AD administrators disable users instead of deleting them.

If you don't delete all shares before removing a file store, when trying to add a share name you
previously deleted from the file store, you will receive the unexpected error 'duplicate share
name'. If you have this issue, the workaround is to recreate the original file store using the deleted
name and manually delete the shares, and then delete the file store again.
An alternate workaround is to execute a stopfs/startfs on the node where the stale share
information is located.
For each <node> with File Persona enabled (see showfs):
1. Execute stopfs <node>.
2. Execute startfs -enable <node>
3. Execute setfpg -failover <fpg> for each FPG in a degraded state whose primary node
(as seen in showfpg -d) is node <node>, to return the FPGs to their primary node.

On some occasions, such as the combination of a node failure and failover, SMB firewall ports
might not be configured for a FPG upon recovery. This prevents user access to shares on that
FPG.
Workaround: To recover, deactivate or reactivate the FPG which configures the firewall using
setfpg –deactivate <FPG> or setfpg –activate <FPG> command.
60762
Creating or growing multiple FPGs in parallel might fail and display an error message RPC
error Bad parameter 'Device.
Workaround: Try the operation on one FPG at a time.
61067
An offline upgrade from 3.2.1 MU2 with Patch 08 (P08) with File Persona enabled may leave
failover in a disabled state, where a future failure may not trigger a failover correctly. If performing
an offline upgrade to MU3 with File Persona enabled, please contact HP support
61173
If the AV scan policy is disabled, it might cause an unwanted increase in memory usage leading
to a node going down and causing failover.
Workaround: Enable AV scan policy and set the vendor to N/A.
61357
After deletion of a non-empty Virtual File Server fails, the Virtual Server is left in a
partially-operational state; specifically, the ".admin" File Store is removed.
Workaround: Remove all the objects that prevented the initial deletion and retry the deletion.
Known Issues with File Persona
69
Issue ID
Description
61640
If the File Persona software has been continuously active for approximately 16 months, without
any restarts due to upgrades or node reboots, a condition will occur which prevents access to
data via the file shares. It is advised that a software upgrade to a newer version be planned
within this window to resolve the issue. If a software upgrade to a newer version is not possible
within this window, the following sequence can be used to avoid the issue. HP recommends
executing this sequence once per year while running on 3PAR OS 3.2.1 MU3 software.
For each <node> with File Persona enabled (see showfs):
1. Execute stopfs <node>.
2. Execute startfs -enable <node>
3. Execute setfpg -failover <fpg> for each FPG in a degraded state whose primary node
(as seen in showfpg -d) is node <node>, to return the FPGs to their primary node.
61796
If an upgrade pre-check is run during upgrade it might cause the upgrade to fail. To avoid this,
do not issue the checkupgrade -precheck command while an upgrade is in progress. If the
upgrade fails, please contact HP support.
118467
In rare circumstances, startfs might fail after printing ‘Executing "createfsvm fs_cpg"’. This
will be accompanied by an alert indicating that the ‘createfsvm’ task has failed. If this occurs,
restart the affected controller node using the shutdownnode nodenum CLI command and
reissue startfs after the node has restarted and joined the cluster.
123354
If multiple Physical Disks (PDs) containing File Persona volume data go offline due to disk drive
failures or service operations, file shares might become inaccessible. The File Provisioning
Groups (FPGs) might appear to be in normal state, but the showvfs, showfstore and
showfshare commands might return “File Services server error: 500”.
Workaround: To recover File Persona cluster, please follow these steps:
1. Stop File Persona gracefully on each of the controller nodes where it is running: stopfs
0,1
2. Confirm that File Persona is shut off on each node using showfs:
showfs
Node FSNode State Active InCluster -Version- ---N:S:P--- BondMode
MTU
0 Yes Shutoff No No - 0:2:1,0:2:2 - 1 Yes Shutoff No No - 1:2:1,1:2:2 - 3. Re-enable File Persona using startfs:
startfs -enable 0,1
4. Wait until the cluster is back in the Running state
If any of the FPGs fail to come back up in the ACTIVATED state, they might need to have FSCK
run against them. Please contact HP support for assistance if this occurs.
123570
A File Provisioning Group (FPG) is allowed to be activated even when shortage of disk space
may deactivate it shortly thereafter.
If the free disk space in a CPG associated with an FPG falls below 60 GB, the FPG is
automatically deactivated. The setfpg -activate CLI command allows the FPG to be
reactivated even if there is less than 60 GB of free space in the CPG. That can result in the FPG
getting deactivated shortly thereafter. To prevent this, additional storage must be provided before
reactivating an FPG that was deactivated due to space shortage.
70
128699
File Persona does not support user names containing only the “-“ character. Avoid specifying
permissions for such users, if they exist in the target environment.
133389
File Persona does not support multi-byte characters for the name or description of the objects
associated File, including FPG, VFS, File Store and Share. Share paths created in other tools
containing multi-byte characters are represented in the CLI with the keyword “[international
data]”.
133596
File Store names containing curly braces ‘{‘ or ‘}’ can cause 3PAR StoreServ Mangement Console
to display incorrect information associated with that File Store. Avoid creating File Stores with
names that contain these characters.
3PAR OS 3.2.1 MU3 Release Notes
Addendum to User Documentation
The following items are meant as a supplement to the other available user documentation to
provide clarifications to the behavior of the File Persona.
Issue ID
Description
43509
If an user runs ROBOCOPY on a shared SMB folder containing child objects with inherited ACLs,
the user must be a share admin. To add a user as a share admin, add the user to
BUILTIN\\Administrators group by using the following command:
setfsgroup -memberlist +<MyDomain>\\john1 Administrators
47144
HP's storage platform has high-availability features such as shared storage accessible from both
failover partners and a reliable network connection between the partners. These features, along
with File Persona services software, make it capable of hosting shares which are classified as
Continuously Available, and therefore it can support the SMB 3.0 specified share property called
Continuous Availability (CA). Windows MMC (Microsoft Management Console) does not know
about the HP storage platform CA support. When MMC creates shares, it does not mark the new
share as a CA share. SMB3 clients accessing the share check for the CA property, and if it is not
found then the SMB3 Persistent Handles feature is not used.
Workaround: To support SMB3 Persistent Handles on a share created by MMC, go to the product's
3PAR SSMC or CLI and turn on the "Continuous Availability" property of the share.
47659
FPG names are limited to containing alphanumeric characters and underscores.
50125
A directory created by the createfshare nfs command has Administrators as the group
owner by default. Solaris does not have Administrators group by default. Therefore, the user can
change the group owner to root, by mounting the NFS share in NFS version 3, and executing the
chown root:root mydirectory command.
50650
When using File Persona services, set appropriate permissions for each individual users if desired.
When running FSCT (File Server Capacity Tool) , appropriate permissions are required or FSCT
prepare server step will fail with following error
"Error setting permissions.
51218
When using the Object Access API, the chmod, chown, chgrp, and ls commands have super
user privileges with the local Administrator account. To perform other operations like rmdir on
files where the administrator does not have sufficient access, a chmod, chown, or chgrp command
must be issued first for the object and then operate on it.
52444
Privileges are not utilized from Active Directory users of SMB. Privileges like Bypass-Traverse
are not preserved.
Workaround: If privileges are needed for backups, HP recommends to use an Administrative
account placed in the built-in Administrators or Backup Operators group on the SMB server.
52707
UID and GID assignment must begin at 1,000.
52933
NFSv4 ACL attributes do not enumerate in the same order as they are set.
52969
The automatically created .admin file store is for use by functions such as configuration backup,
antivirus quarantine management, and quota import/export. Create shares only for these specific
uses within the .admin file store, and not for general file storage.
53437
Files and folders might become stranded if they are owned by an unmappable GID. When this
happens, the ACLs for such folders and files might need modification to allow an admin or other
user to clean up the files. However, when the Linux GID for the file's group is not resolvable, the
ACL setting GUI in Windows clients encounters errors trying to modify the ACL on the file/folder.
Workaround: An SMB share administrator can change the file's group to a legal group. This can
be done by overwriting the entire ACL with one that has a good group. To do this:
1. Make a directory or file with a good GID and ACL. This can be done in explorer, CMD, or
powershell. PS C:\> mkdir z:\new_good_dir
2. Set the ACL of the stranded directory to be a copy of the ACL from the good directory:PS
C:\> get-acl -path Z:\new_good_dir | set-acl -path <stranded directory
parh>

Issue ID
Description
53688
If both the client and the array are not in a domain, a Windows 8 or Server 2012 client will not be
able to successfully modify folder security on shared folders.
Workaround: Use a client running another OS such as Server 2003 or Server 2008 to modify
the folder security.
53713
The account with full control permissions can manage the share permissions and the NTFS file
permissions.
Administrators are not given a special bypass of allowperms on a share. Only users/groups
which have share allowperm permissions will be able to access the share.
53715
By default, LDAP users are unable to access NFS exports.
Workaround: After creating a share directory, create an export with no_root_squash. Mount it
as root and use chmod/chown/chgrp to modify permissions. This no_root_squash export can be
created with an allowed IP list of a single client to reduce any security impact.
53721
The default load order (provider stacking order) is set to AD, Local. This is expected to be the
primary order for the vast majority of the customers. HP recommends using the default load order
to minimize issues.
To enable LDAP authentication:
1. Configure Ldap
2. Add Ldap to the provider stacking order
To disable LDAP authentication, do one of the following:
• Delete Ldap configuration
• Remove Ldap from the provider stacking order
However, not removing Ldap from the load order might cause unintended behavior. For efficient
name resolutions, include only those providers in the load order that are expected to resolve
names. The Local provider is always required since BUILTIN names are resolved by the Local
provider. Configure the load order based on the expected usage of the name services included
in the load order. Configure highly used services first to optimize the performance of name
resolutions.
53724
There is a difference in behavior between NFSv4 and NFSv3 client mounts while mounting from
clients that are not in the allowed list for the exports. NFSv3 prevents the mount from going
through, NFSv4 clients is allowed to mount as the top level Pseudo Root has mount permissions
for every one to allow them to browse the exports available like an auto mounter. But while trying
to access the exports from those clients, the attempt to access the export is denied.
53727
NULLDACL not supported.
Workaround: A NULLDACL means that the file is open to everyone. To do this, create an Everyone
ACE and give Everyone full permissions.
53730
File Persona settings outside of the Virtual File Server need to be manually restored in a bare
metal scenario.
The configuration backup/restore process covers the preservation of the virtual file server data.
However, the feature does not cover any of the system level configurations made with setfs or
the virus scan engines configured with setfsav vse [+|-]. These need to be reconfigured
manually in a bare metal restore scenario or when setting up a DR site. The information to be set
with these commands can be obtained through the corresponding showfs commands. The AV
(Anti-Virus) information can be obtained via the showfsav command.
72
53733
Duplicate users in multiple configured authentication providers are not supported.
53896
Shares cannot be MMC managed from array computer account. Use the VFS IP address or its
corresponding DNS name.
3PAR OS 3.2.1 MU3 Release Notes
Issue ID
Description
54280
You can make an NFSv3 mount of a file system that contains NFSv4 ACLs. This combination
exhibits the following behavior:
• The NFS server grants or denies data access based on the NFSv4 ACLs
• The NFS client cannot view or manipulate the ACLs directly.
• If the mount is made with the acl option (noacl is the default), the NFS client can manipulate
AIXC (AIX Classic) ACLs, but cannot manipulate NFSv4 ACLs.
54342
The File Persona represents file streams internally as independent files, which require some
overhead to manage. When the antivirus is enabled, the performance of stream based operations
might reduce further.
54671
When running an on demand or scheduled virus scan of a large set of files, the expected processing
rate is no greater than 2 million files per day, depending on load.
54867
NFSv4 supports browsable pseudo root file system to support the use case of browsing the file
system to find the exports to mount and mount. The pseudo root file system is exported "ro" so
all the exports underneath can be browsed and mounted. If there are unexported directories
underneath the psuedo root file system, the clients will be able to mount "ro" as the pseudo root
file system is mounted "ro" to allow every one to browse. However if the client tries to access the
unexported file system, the client will not be allowed to access as expected.
55517
For use with NDMP, each node in the cluster has a separate IQN.
Listing of cluster IQNs list IQNs for all the nodes with their node name and per node IPs. Create
and assign VTLs per node. For restoring data, modify/update the initiator IQN in VTL after FPG
failover and failback.
56100
Due to the Portable Operating System Interface for Unix (POSIX) nature of the File Persona file
system, groups cannot be the owners of directories or files. This is an expected behavior.
59407
On some occasions, files on the surviving node are inaccessible for some time after its HA partner
crashes. The surviving node restarts the SMB stack and all expected shares are available.
61173
If the AV scan policy is set to OFF, it can cause slow memory leak which eventually leads to file
services restarting on the node and causing failover.
Workaround: Enable the Set AV scan policy and remove the anti-virus vendor.
61712
Separate file stores can have same NFS share names. For SMB and HTTP shares, all share
names must be unique at the VFS level.
61912
Setting an access control entry via UID or GID will succeed only if the ID can be properly resolved
to a user or a group name.
61959
Removal of all ACL from a file prevents access to the file. If a user removes all ACEs from an
ACL, no SMB user, including the file owner and administrators, can put ACLs back.
Workaround: To repair the file via an NFS share, execute nfs4_setfacl on the client to add an
ACL.
62026
Under certain SW failure conditions, all FPGs do not fail over successfully to the backup node.
Workaround: To manually activate the FPG, use the setfpg - activate <fpgname>
command.
62227
Using unsupported locale settings during a file create operation can result in a failed file delete
operation. File persona supports UTF-8 encoding format in locale settings. If the user utilizes an
unsupported multi-byte encoding format such as ForEx: utf-16 for locale settings and creates files
or directories, file deletion of some of the files might fail.
62330
Either of following errors might occur:
• MMC sessions not visible, indicating permission denied.
• 2k12 client stops enumerating sessions indicating remote procedure call failed.
• Open file enumeration/close fails indicating an invalid handle.
Workaround: Restart SMB services to resolve the issue.

Client OS Behaviors and Limitations
The following items are meant to capture issues seen on clients communicating to File Persona
shares.
74
Issue ID
Description
52465
The RHEL 6.5 operating system does not support mounting of NFSv4 over UDP.
53241
Minimum version of Linux kernel to be used is version 2.6.32-504 when using Anti-virus software.
53494
When mounting in NFS version 4, the commands ls –l and ls –v in Solaris 10u10 give the
error : Permission denied. To read the ACL of a file in NFS share, execute the getfaclcommand.
53621
The NFS Version 4 protocol supports NFSv4 style ACLs. 3PAR File Persona uses its own
underlying file system to support NFSv4 ACL functionality. Solaris NFSv4 full featured capability
however requires that ZFS be used as the underlying file system on the NFSv4 server.
Consequently, the Solaris 11 NFSv4 ACL manipulation is supported with restrictions on 3PAR
File Persona. Solaris NFSv4 chmod/ls commands are used to manipulate NFSv4 ACL’s. Please
refer to the 3PAR Solaris Implementation Guide for specific details.
53683
In NFS client version 2.6.32, create file fails with “Input/Output Error” if the size is more than quota
limit. For other Linux versions such as RHEL 5.8 2.6.18 and CentOS 6.5 2.6.32, error message
“Disk quota exceeded” is displayed when the file size exceeds allowed quota size.
54176
NFSv4 ACL commands are not supported by 3PAR File Persona for Solaris 10.
54201
Solaris does not support use of POSIX ACL commands from Solaris clients to manipulate NFSv4
ACLs.
54218
SuSE SLES10 client does not support NFS4 ACL.
54219
HP-UX 11iv3 (11.31) is the only version of the HP UNIX Operating System that supports NFSv4.
HP-UX NFSv4 clients only support POSIX ACLs and do not provide the necessary tools for NFSv4
ACL manipulation. When users need to manipulate ACLs, HP recommends mounting the 3PAR
File Persona NFS shares with NFS version 3 and using the native HP-UX POSIX ACL commands.
54274
During manual fail over of StoreServ controller node FPG ownership by using setfpg command,
NFS connection renewal is observed occasionally at failover on both Solaris 10 and 11 clients.
Manual failover actually goes through and the clients stay connected to the NFS shares

What’s New in the OS
3PAR OS 3.2.1 EMU3 provides all the benefits provided by 3PAR OS 3.2.1 MU3 and addresses
following issues, some of which are encountered during an upgrade:
•
Certain host SCSI writes to the primary volumes receive good status, instead of a check
condition UA, when Remote Copy writes cannot be replicated to the secondary volumes
during a Peer Persistence automatic failover.
•
Online conversions, online copy, online promote, and imports all temporarily close a VV.
This might cause the system manager to become unresponsive or an unexpected node
restart.
•
A potential issue where disks being admitted to the system might become inaccessible when
the labels are read again.
•
Issues such as early node reboots and non-monotonic log timestamps.
•
CIM Server uses less system resources when the nodesrv process is slow in responding to
CIM Server requests.
•
Concurrency issue between dedup garbage collection and conversions.
•
One or more controller nodes restart unexpectedly.
