Impact and Restrictions

Impact and Restrictions

This section describes the restrictions on the SmartVirtualization feature.


Heterogeneous storage systems supported by SmartVirtualization can be Huawei storage systems and other third-party storage systems from mainstream vendors. Use the Huawei Storage Interoperability Navigator to check models of compatible Huawei storage systems and other mainstream vendors' storage systems.

Storage systems that are not listed in the interoperability matrix are incompatible heterogeneous storage systems. You are advised not to connect incompatible heterogeneous storage systems to a local storage system for takeover because incompatibility issues may occur. When you want to connect an incompatible heterogeneous storage system to a local storage system to meet service requirements, contact Huawei technical support.

Table 1-2 lists the connection methods between a local storage system and a compatible heterogeneous storage system.

If you create a masqueraded eDevLUN to take over a heterogeneous storage system non-disruptively, the operating system of your application server, multipathing software, and cluster software must meet compatibility requirements. For details, see Compatibility Requirements for an Online Takeover.
