If you are a customer, partner, or EMC employee and you are subscribed to the ETA notifications list, you probably got a heads up about potential incompatibility between the VNX, RecoverPoint, and VAAI under certain conditions. For those of you who are not subscribed, fellow blogger Cormac Hogan wrote a quick little post about the issue.
I’m proud to announce that there is a fix available for this and it can be found in VNX Block OE 05.32.000.5.206 (released this week). Simply apply this fix (you can do it yourself using USM). For those of you with a FILE front end, make sure you update to 184.108.40.206 as well.
If you are an EMC Customer (with support zone credentials), you can read the full description of solution emc327099 (now stored on the new knowledgebase solution powered by Salesforce). If the direct link is not working, simply login to http://support.emc.com and search for “emc327099” and your first result should be the solution.
