Recovery is possible if the missing devices can be restored so that the cached datacan be written to the virtual disk. Ifhost control of write-back cache is disabled, the host cannot modify the cachesetting. In a dual-controller system, setting the speed of host port 0 onone controller also sets the speed of host port 1 on the other controller. For a system using point-to-point topology, the following figure shows how portWWNs and mapped volumes are presented if controller Encllosure fails.


If the value is Yes, the LUN is alsoshown.

Check it regularly to monitor the status ofyour system. When you create a virtual disk, you can specify the number of volumes you wantand their sizes. Such inconsistencies can indicate that a drive in the virtual disk is goingbad.
