Issues Fixed in Eyeglass Release 1.7

Failover

T1465:  Failover option to Disable SyncIQ on Failover Target still runs the policy before disabling it

The Eyeglass DR Assistant Failover Wizard option for "Disable SyncIQ Jobs on Failover Target" still runs the policy before disabling the policy instead of not running it at all.

Resolution: With the "Disable SyncIQ Jobs on Failover Target" option selected, the policy on failover target is not run during failover and is disabled.

—————————————————–

T2144:  SyncIQ Policy schedule set during Failover fails (OneFS 8)

The TARGET set schedule step in failover where Eyeglass applies the schedule from the source SyncIQ policy to the target SyncIQ policy will fail in OneFS 8 when source cluster SyncIQ policy is configured for:

  • run option "Whenever a snapshot of the source directory is taken"

  • Run option sync on change with the Delay option

In this case the failover will fail at the TARGET set schedule step.  Use the Failover Recovery Guide to determine next steps.

Resolution: For OneFS8 policies with schedule setting of

  • run option "Whenever a snapshot of the source directory is taken"

  • Run option sync on change with the Delay option

This schedule is now handled as follows:

  • For OneFS 8 -> OneFS 8 failover, schedule on source applied to policy on target

  • For OneFS 8 -> 7.2 failover, schedule set to manual on policy on target

—————————————————–

T2249:  Running same Access Zone failover job twice rolls back network changes

For the case where the same Access Zone failover is initiated twice in a row (same Access Zone, same direction) the second failover job waits for the first failover job to complete before it is initiated. When it is initiated, it finds that the SyncIQ policies are already failed over and fails.  The second failover then rolls back any networking changes resulting from the first failover which would then result in user access being reverted to the source which is now read-only.

Resolution:  Blocked from starting the same Access Zone failover job twice in a row.  

—————————————————–

T2263:  Zone Replication Readiness does not account for all status

Zone Replication Readiness is calculated based on the first Job in the list instead of rolling up status of all Jobs.  As these Jobs are all for the same Access Zone, they usually are the same, but in the case where an error occurs in a Job which is not the first Job in the list the Zone Readiness will not reflect the Error state.

Resolution:  Expand the Zone Readiness / Zone Replication Readiness top level now rolls up status of all sub-elements.

—————————————————–



Configuration Replication


T2250: Eyeglass Configuration Replication task does not create SPN where Eyeglass is managing both OneFS 7.2 and Access Zone set to use all authentication providers

If Eyeglass is managing clusters with version OneFS 7.2, the SPN repair task which is run during the Configuration Replication task does not add SPN for newly created Smartconnect Zones if the associated Access Zone is configured to use all authentication providers.

Resolution: to be updated.

—————————————————–

T2087: Eyeglass Configuration Replication in Pending state has Zone Readiness status of OK

If Eyeglass Configuration Replication Job is in Pending state indicating that it has not been run yet, the Zone Readiness shows OK status instead of Warning status.

Resolution: Zone Replication Readiness is WARNING for Pending job in Policy Readiness and in Zone Readiness

—————————————————–

T2299: Eyeglass Zone and Filesystem (Snapshot Schedule and Dedupe) Configuration Replication Jobs enabled after failover

If you have manually disabled an Access Zone replication Job or a Filesystem (Snapshot schedule / Dedupe) Configuration Replication Job, after failover the Job will be enabled.  The next scheduled configuration replication task will sync settings to the target cluster.

Resolution: Filesystem job and Zone job stay as 'User Disabled' after failover.

—————————————————–

Features



1213: Change Management Report for all Isilon Clusters

Description: Change records for both Isilon Clusters managed on an Eyeglass appliance will be provided in a single report.

Resolution: Change Management Reports removed in this release. Plan to reintroduce in future release with changes

—————————————————–

T758: Live Ops DR Test Mode does not work for for DFS enabled policies

For DFS enabled Eyeglass Configuration Replication Jobs, the DR Test Mode does not create the associated shares in the DR Test zone.

Note: After failover, shares for DFS enabled Eyeglass Configuration Replication Jobs are replicated to the DR Test Access Zone.

Resolution: Shares for DFS enabled policies correctly created in  DR Test Mode Access Zone without DFS prefix or suffix.

—————————————————–

T1922: Eyeglass refresh does not update the Cluster Storage Hardware View

The Cluster Storage window Hardware view is not updated by Eyeglass auto-refresh or Refresh Now

Resolution: Cluster Hardware window can be refreshed by clicking 'Refresh Now'

Note: 'Refresh Now' only refresh the active pane.

—————————————————

T2009:  Able to create blank Role, Group, User

In the Eyeglass User Roles it is possible to create a blank Role, Group and User.  Once created, these cannot be deleted.

Resolution: Blocked from creating blank Role, Group or User.

—————————————————

T2078:  Adding new User Role with same name as existing User Role deletes the original User Role

Adding a new User Role with the same name as an existing User Role deletes the original User Role and replaces it with the new User Role.

Resolution: Blocked from creating User Role with same name as an existing User Role.

—————————————————

T2216:  Eyeglass refresh does not update the Continuous Operations Dashboard

The Continuous Operations Dashboard window is not updated by Eyeglass auto-refresh or Refresh Now.

Resolution: Continuous Operations Dashboard window now updated when Refresh Now is selected or is auto-refreshed after Configuration Replication task is completed.

—————————————————

T2246:  Dedupe replication error for one job blocks Dedupe replication for remaining jobs

For the case where an Eyeglass appliance has multiple Dedupe Jobs due to managing multiple Cluster pairs or a Hot-Hot Replication topology, if one of the Dedupe Jobs fails any Dedupe jobs not run before are blocked from running. The Continuous Operations Dashboard window will show Error for the Job that failed, but any blocked Jobs will show the status of their previous run (for example OK).

Resolution: Deduplication job is now run for each pair of clusters separately so one job error does not stop the other from running. Continuous op dashboard is updated for each configuration replication task run.

—————————————————


Known Issues

Failover


2666/2723: Problems for Controlled Failover when Source becomes unreachable during failover

In a Controlled Failover where requirement is that Source cluster is reachable, should the Source cluster become unreachable during the failover an error will occur on the failover job but it is possible that no failover log will be generated.  

If the Source becomes unreachable after Failover Wizard validation but before the Failover starts, a log is generated with 1 line that states success.  The Running Jobs window has no details

Workaround: None available

—————————————————–


2278: Zone Readiness lists Access Zone after all related SyncIQ Policies are deleted

For the case where an Access Zone which initially had associated SyncIQ Policies and then all SyncIQ Policies are deleted, the Access Zone will incorrectly appear in the Zone Readiness view with a Status of UNKNOWN.

Workaround: None required.  This entry can be ignored.

—————————————————–


2919: Eyeglass Configuration Replication Jobs may not display in the Zone Readiness Eyeglass Configuration Replication Readiness list

If an Eyeglass Configuration Replication Job has no associated shares, exports, alias or quotas, the Job will not be displayed under Eyeglass Configuration Replication Readiness if the SyncIQ OneFS Readiness is WARNING.

Workaround: None Required.  Failover will run all logic and policies as expected.

—————————————————–


3010: Unexpected results for failover where total number of objects exceeds the published limit

Running an Eyeglass assisted failover where the total number of objects exceeds the published maximum limit will lead to unexpected results.

Workaround: Review published limits and do not use Eyeglass assisted failover if your system exceeds the published limit.

Please refer to the Eyeglass Admin Guide for published limits here.

—————————————————–


3029: Zone Readiness not calculated correctly for SyncIQ subnet pool with a mapping hint

The subnet:pool which are provisioned against SyncIQ Policies for the Restrict Source Nodes option require an igls-ignore hint for Access Zone Failover to prevent the networking in the pool from becoming failed over during an Access Zone Failover.  If there is an Eyeglass igls- mapping hint assigned to these subnet:pool which could result in the networking being failed over Zone Readiness either does not show an error OR it may show the error that mapping is incomplete.

Workaround: Only configure igls-ignore hint on subnet:pool that is provisioned against SyncIQ policy for the Restrict Source Nodes option.

—————————————————–


3031: Zone Readiness Policy Path Containment Check results in extra errors

Zone Readiness for an Access Zone which does not meet SyncIQ Policy path requirement “SyncIQ Policy(s) source root directory must be at or below the Access Zone Base Directory” may in errors for every validation category, with the message "Cannot calculate Access Zone Failover Readiness for a zone with no pools".

Workaround: To resolve the error, ensure that the Policy Path Containment Requirement is met.

Eyeglass Assisted Access Zone Failover Requirements are documented in the Access Zone Failover Guide here.

—————————————————–

3077: Zone Readiness does not catch pool mapping hint misconfiguration for partial string match

Zone Readiness: Smartconnect Zone Failover Mapping Readiness validation does not detect a pool mapping error when there is a partial string match.  For example:

cluster A Smartconnect Zone Mapping Hint = igls-pool

cluster B Smartconnect Zone Mapping Hint = igls-pool1

Readiness check from A to B does not detect the error.  Readiness check from B to A shows an error that no mapping is available.

Workaround:

  • Ensure that your Smartconnect Zone Mapping Hints are identical for mapped pools

T477: No Policy Hot/Hot Validation Error for policy with no share/export

Zone Readiness incorrectly shows Policy Hot/Hot Validation as OK in an environment where there are one or more policies in the Access Zone which do not have any file sharing objects (shares or exports).

Workaround: Add a file sharing object under the SyncIQ Policy path.

—————————————————–

T482: Zone Readiness shows OK for multiple Smartconnect Zone Mapping errors

In the case where Smartconnect Zone Mapping contains many errors such as multiple hints or combination of hint and igls-ignore on both clusters, the mapping error may only show for one of the clusters instead of both clusters.

Workaround: Provision Smartconnect Zone Mapping according to requirements documented here.

—————————————————–

T654: Zone Readiness incorrectly includes SyncIQ Policy in System Access Zone

For the case where a SyncIQ Policy source path corresponds to a non-System Access Zone path (path is at or below the Access Zone path) but there is a share protected by that policy in the System Access Zone, the SyncIQ Policy incorrectly is evaluated for Zone Readiness in the System Access Zone.

Workaround: None required.  This policy can be ignored in the System Access Zone as in this configuration the System Access Zone cannot be failed over.

—————————————————–


T1712:  Zone Readiness missing Zone when pool has no SmartConnect Zone - OneFS 7

In OneFS 7 When a subnet pool is associated with an Access Zone and does not have a Smartconnect Zone, the Access Zone is not displayed in Eyeglass Zone Readiness window.  With OneFS 8 there is an entry in Zone Readiness with appropriate error.

Workaround: Create SmartConnect Zone for the pools associated with the Access Zone that you want to failover.

—————————————————–

T1716:  Eyeglass Runbook Robot NFS mount not functioning for RHEL and Centos deployments

If Eyeglass is deployed on a Redhat or Centos operating system the Eyeglass Runbook Robot pre and post failover check for file system read/write by making an NFS mount does not work.

Workaround: Disable the Runbook Robot mount step by setting to false following the instructions here: http://documentation.superna.net/eyeglass-isilon-edition/Eyeglass-Isilon-Edition#TOC-Runbook-Robot-Mount-Export-Enable-Disable

Manually check read/write status of filesystem.

—————————————————––

T1482:  Zone Readiness SyncIQ Readiness not updated after Access Zone associated to a pool

For the case where initially an Access Zone with a policy is not associated with a pool, the policy appears in Zone Readiness/SyncIQ Readiness under the System Access Zone.  Once the Access Zone is associated with the pool the Policy remains associated with the System Access Zone.

Workaround: None Available.  This is a display issue and the policy will failover if the access zone it is a member of is failed over.

Configuration Replication


1683: Export sync where source  is 7.1.1.x and target 8.x.x.x

Description: Syncing exports does not function between these releases.  

Resolution:  None unsupported sync, upgrade to 7.2.x.x

————————————————--


649: Export sync where source and target path on each cluster is different is deleted and recreated in each config cycle (affects onefs 7 to 8 or 8 to 7 replication)

Description: When the path on source cluster and target of the SyncIQ policy are different, exports will be deleted on target and then recreated again  within the same replication job.  No error is seen on the config sync job.  May affect other releases as well.

Resolution:  None, export is created correctly after config sync job completes.

————————————————--

1462 - Export max_file_size cannot be replicated

Updated export max_file_size parameter is not replicated and replication Job fails.

———————————-


1355: Edit Job configuration to include share/export deselected from another Job causes share/export to be reselected.

Description: When you edit a Job B configuration to include share/export that had already been deselected from Job A, this causes this share/export to be reselected for Job A as well.  

Workaround: None available.  Should the share/export subsequently be deselected from Job B it should then also be manually deselected again from Job A.

—————————————————–


1580: Delete and Create export within same replication cycle orphans deleted export on the target with OneFS 7.1.1.x

With OneFS 7.1.1.x, a delete and create export operation which occurs within the same replication cycle will replicate the export that was created on the next replication cycle but the export deleted on the source will not be deleted on the target.  

Workaround: Manually remove the deleted export from the target using Isilon OneFS.

—————————————————–


1625: Custom QUOTA Jobs require extra replication cycle to be deleted

In the Eyeglass Jobs window, when you delete a CUSTOM Job and then the associated QUOTA Job is not immediately deleted.  It is deleted on the next replication cycle.

Workaround: None required.

—————————————————–


1639: Able to manually Run Now disabled Custom Job

Eyeglass Jobs window allows you to Run Now on a Custom Job which has been disabled.  A message is displayed indicating that the Job has been queued but the share/export configuration replication Job is not run and the associated QUOTA Job is run and quotas are replicated.

Workaround: Do not Run Now for Custom Job that has been Disabled.

—————————————————–


1641: Custom Job does not include shares/export when source or destination path configured with a trailing /

If you enter source or destination path for Eyeglass Custom Job with a trailing / (for example /ifs/data/test/ ), the Custom Job will not pick up the related shares and exports.

Workaround: Source and destination paths must be entered without the trailing / - for example /ifs/data/test.

—————————————————–




1788: Delete of unlinked user quota on source may not delete matching quota on the target

Attempting a quota replication after deleting an unlinked user quota may fail to delete the quota on the target with a Job status of success but an Audit failure.

Workaround: Deleted quota manually deleted on the target.

—————————————————–


1789: Able to select shares/exports/quotas outside job path after deselected

After a share/export/quota has been deselected from an Eyeglass Job, it can be re-selected for a different Job even if it is outside the Job path.  As a result, the Job may have  an error for these share/export/quota due to path not found error.

Workaround: Do not customize Eyeglass configuration replication Job and select share/export/quota that are outside the Job path.

—————————————————–


1887: Multiple SyncIQ policies associated with same Zone will result in transient error on Eyeglass Zone replication creation

Where there are multiple SyncIQ policies which are associated to the same zone and Eyeglass configuration replication is being used to create the zone on the target, the first Zone replication job will succeed, but subsequent Zone replication jobs for the same Zone will fail with the message “Zone ‘<zone name>’ already exists”.

Workaround: None required.  Error will be cleared on subsequent configuration replication cycle.

—————————————————–



1924: Quotas on excluded SyncIQ directory are selected for replication

Eyeglass quota job includes quotas related to excluded SyncIQ directories.  If quota job is run, it will typically fail due to path not found.

Workaround: Customize Quota Job and deselect quotas for excluded directories.

—————————————————–


1998: Custom Eyeglass configuration replication Job does not have an associated Zone replication Job

When you create a new custom Eyeglass Job, an associated Zone replication Job is not created.

Workaround: Zone must be created manually or already exist on the target cluster in order for Eyeglass configuration replication to succeed.

—————————————————–


2004: Custom Quota Job is incorrectly listed in the Failover: Quota Failover (RUN MANUALLY) section in the Jobs window

When you create a new custom Eyeglass Job, the associated Quota replication Job is created and incorrectly listed under Failover: Quota Failover (RUN MANUALLY) section in the Jobs window.  Custom Quota Jobs do not need to be run manually, they are run automatically each time the customer Eyeglass configuration replication Job is run.

Workaround: None required.  Custom Quota Jobs do not need to be run manually, they are run automatically each time the customer Eyeglass configuration replication Job is run.

—————————————————–


2007: Job error after deleting quota

After running Quota Job and successfully replicating quota to target, if quota is deleted and Quota Job is run again the Quota is successfully deleted from the target but the Quota Job has Error status.

Workaround: None required - quota is deleted.

—————————————————–


2038: Create alias results in temporary error

When an nfs alias is replicated to the target, the initial create leaves Job in Error state with  related alarm " Alias <alias name> already exists on this zone"

Workaround: None required.  Next replication cycle clears the error.

—————————————————–


2043: Configuration replication job has error after zone is deleted

For the case where Zone related to a Configuration Replication Job is deleted on the source, the Zone and associated configuration items are successfully deleted on the target, but the Configuration Replication job remains in Error state.

Workaround: None required.  Shares and exports are deleted as expected.

—————————————————–


2045: Edit Configuration for Custom Job has multiple source cluster selected where Eyeglass is managing more than 2 clusters

For the case where Eyeglass is managing more than 2 clusters, it may occur that the Edit Configuration view incorrect.

Workaround: None required.  Shares and exports are replicated as expected.

—————————————————–


2046: Job Edit Configuration view has the wrong parent selected

For the case where a configuration replication job contained a configuration items and the last configuration item is deleted - after the configuration item is deleted, the parent in the Edit Configuration view continues to be selected for the Job even though when you expand the tree there are correctly no children selected.

Workaround: None required.

—————————————————–


2049: Delete Zone does not delete associated configuration items on target for custom Jobs and auto jobs with disabled zone Job

When a non System zone is deleted on the Source, the Eyeglass Configuration Replication Custom Job or Auto job with disabled Zone Job does not remove the associated configuration items from target related to the deleted Zone.

Workaround: Manually delete the Zone and associated configuration items on the target using OneFS.

—————————————————–


2235: Eyeglass replication Job does not complete when source cluster becomes unreachable after Job has started

If the source cluster becomes unreachable after the Eyeglass configuration replication Job has started, the Job does not complete.

Workaround: None required.  The Job will eventually complete after all communications timeouts have occurred.  This may take an hour.

—————————————————–


2060: Access Zone Replication Error - Error on creation of shared resource

Error on Replication for Access Zone which shows Error on creation of shared resource.

Workaround: None required.  Once SyncIQ Job has run again in OneFS, the next time configuration replication runs the Access Zone is replicated.

—————————————————–


2488: Inconsistent behaviour in Run Now for Disabled Jobs

When Run Now is selected for an Eyeglass Job which is disabled, the handling is different depending on Job Type and state:

For Job which is “Policy Disabled” - Run Now is blocked for all Jobs

For Job which is “User Disabled” - Run Now not blocked and all enabled Jobs run

For Robot Job which is disabled - Run Now not blocked, Job is initiated and then fails.

Workaround: Only select enabled Jobs for Run Now.  

—————————————————–

1938: Issues with Eyeglass Configuration Replication Jobs after the Access Zone is deleted

When you delete an Access Zone in OneFS, the following issues occur in Eyeglass:

  • corresponding Eyeglass Zone Configuration Replication Job is not deleted

Workaround: None Required.  Job is empty.

—————————————————–


2308: In EyeGlass, NFS alias health is always 'unknown'

Eyeglass Inventory, NFS Alias audit and Cluster Configuration Report always have the NFS alias health property set to unknown.

Workaround: Determine the NFS Alias healt from the OneFS command line using isi command..

—————————————————–


2804: Disabled SyncIQ Policy is not initially displayed as Policy Disabled in Eyeglass

When the Eyeglass system setting for INITIALSTATE is set to Disabled for Configuration Replication Jobs (Type = AUTO), the Jobs window State for the Eyeglass Configuration Replication Job where the corresponding SyncIQ Policy is disabled displays as “User Disabled” instead of “Policy Disabled”.  In this state the Eyeglass GUI allows you to Enable this Job, but in fact after the next Configuration Replication Job the Job is correctly displayed with the Policy Disabled state.

Workaround: None Required.

—————————————————–

T676: Eyeglass Zone replication Job does not replicate all authentication providers for OneFS 8.0

For OneFS 8.0, if an Access Zone has multiple authentication providers not all providers will be replicated for the Access Zone on the target cluster.

Workaround: Manually edit the Access Zone on the target cluster and add the required authentication providers.

—————————————————–


T723: Job shows OK when there is an Access Eyeglass Zone Replication Error

The Jobs window for an Access Zone replication Job which had a replication error or audit error shows as OK even though an Alarm was issued for the Error.

Workaround: Monitor email for Access Zone replication errors.  Address the replication issues.

—————————————————–

T771: Edit Configuration does not show parent node selected

If a change is made to a Configuration Replication Job to deselect a file sharing object from the job, the parent node where there still are selected objects is no longer selected in the Edit Configuration window.

Workaround: Expand the Inventory View tree for SMB and NFS to see which objects are contained in the Job.

—————————————————–

T805: Eyeglass Configuration Replication Jobs not updated when IP address changed on Source Cluster

An IP address change on the Source Cluster of an Eyeglass Configuration Replication job does not get picked up and the job continues to reference the old IP address resulting in a configuration replication error.

Workaround: Reset Eyeglass to pick up IP address changes for Jobs on the new active cluster

  1. Make a record of the state of all Configuration Replication Jobs in the Eyeglass Jobs window - these states will NOT be preserved on the reset:

    1. Jobs which are Configuration Replication type

    2. Jobs that are DFS enabled

    3. Jobs that are User Disabled

  2. SSH to Eyeglass appliance using admin: sudo -s enter (must use root)  then use admin password (default password: 3y3gl4ss)

  3. set the initial state for all Eyeglass Job types to User disabled

    1. http://documentation.superna.net/eyeglass-isilon-edition/Eyeglass-Isilon-Edition#TOC-igls-adv-initialstate

  4. cd /opt/superna/sbin

  5. ./reset.sh

  6. Once reset completes, go to the chrome browser and refresh the browser and login with the credentials

  7. Now, you need to add both of the cluster using Management subnet SSIP.

  8. Once it is added, open the Job window - now you will see all the Eyeglass configuration replication jobs are in “user disabled” state

  9. .Enable all the Eyeglass configuration Job to DFS Mode if configured

IMPORTANT: You must enable DFS mode before enabling the Job to prevent creation of active shares on target cluster.

  1. Enable all configuration replication job (except ones that were previously User Disabled) and run it


—————————————————–

T593: Eyeglass errors for multiple exports with the same path

If an Eyeglass Configuration Replication Job contains more than one Export with the same path, this may result in an AUDITFAILED state or configuration replication error  for the associated Eyeglass Configuration Replication Job in the DR Dashboard or a configuration replication error.

Workaround: The following workaround is available to address this issue:

  1. Modify exports on the source to add a second path which is a sub-folder of the existing path.  This way Eyeglass will identify each Export uniquely.  Example

           Initial State:

            export 1:   /ifs/data/folder

            export 2:   /ifs/data/folder

           Updated State:

            export 1:   /ifs/data/folder

                             /ifs/data/folder/sub-folder

            export 2:   /ifs/data/folder


          2) Exports must have different Clients.

T1851: Eyeglass Configuration Replication Jobs not removed when there is no SyncIQ privilege for the eyeglass service account

If the eyeglass service account has the SyncIQ privilege removed the Eyeglass Jobs are not updated to removed even though the associated SyncIQ policy cannot be retrieved.  The Jobs run successfully with the message “The job has no data to replicate; skipping it.”

Workaround: eyeglass service account must have the SyncIQ privilege as documented in minimum permissions document here:  http://documentation.superna.net/eyeglass-isilon-edition/tech-notes/isilon-cluster-user-minimum-privileges-for-eyeglass

—————————————————–

T2193 - Export max_file_size setting not replicated correctly

A large export max_file_size parameter is not replicated exactly to target as it is configured on the source which results in an Audit failure during Eyeglass Configuration Replication.  For example:

Source 4611686018427388000

Target: 4611686018427387904

Workaround:  None available. For smaller values such as 1024 or 1048576 this error does not occur.

———————————-

T2482 - Eyeglass does not create alias for “short” SmartConnect Zones

During the Eyeglass Inventory process missing SPNs are detected and created.  If a pool contains a SmartConnect Zone that is not fully qualified the related SPN is not created.  For example: “prod” instead of “prod.example.com”.

Workaround:  Create “short” SPNs manually.

Note: During Access Zone Failover this issue does not exist, SPN delete and add sequence works correctly for SmartConnect Zones that are not fully qualified.

———————————-

Features


1138: Eyeglass UI does not block configuration of duplicate remote logging service

—————————————————

T2402:  DR Test Mode Job state not persistent in Eyeglass

Eyeglass-DR-Testing job state is not preserved after restore.

Workaround: From the Jobs window enable or disable DR Test mode as required.

—————————————————

T2520:  Rename existing SyncIQ Policy for DR Test Mode does not create the associated DR Testing Job

If an existing SyncIQ policy is renamed to include the Eyeglass-DR-Testing prefix, Eyeglass does not create the associated DR Testing job as the Job is tagged for regular Configuration Replication (AUTO) Job in the SyncIQ Policy description and that description is not being updated.

Workaround: Remove the description inserted by Eyeglass and replace with a short description such as “Eyeglass DR Test Mode policy”.  Leaving SyncIQ Policy description blank and saving the policy will not resolve the issue.

Superna Eyeglass Known Limitations

Known Limitations for Isilon OneFS 8.0.0.x with Eyeglass


T507 Cluster Report for OneFS 8.0 missing information

The Eyeglass Cluster Configuration Report for OneFS 8.0 is missing following information:

  • DNS and Subnet information

  • File System Explorer

  • Protocols - new HDFS, FTP, HTTP settings


T831 Failover Allow Writes step not allowed when quotas being created in OneFS 8.0

The step to create quotas during an Eyeglass failover occurs before the step to make the data writeable on the target.  For OneFS 8.0, the quota creation step blocks the Allow Writes step with the error:

A new quota domain that has not finished QuotaScan has been found. Please wait for QuotaScan to finish before restarting the sync job.


Workaround: Manually run quota jobs from Eyeglass prior to running doing an Eyeglass failover.  


Known Limitations for Eyeglass Failover

T939  Eyeglass Access Zone Replication Job in Error after failover

The Access Zone Replication Job associated with the SyncIQ mirror policy configuration replication Job has the following error when the SyncIQ policy source and target path are not identical.

Workaround:  Create and update Access Zones manually on source and target cluster and disable Eyeglass Access Zone replication Jobs.  With the Eyeglass Access Zone replication Jobs disabled, the Zone Configuration Replication Readiness Jobs will have a status of Unknown.  This does not block failover.

T1785  Cannot set ignore flag on subnet pool after failback

It is not supported to apply an igls-ignore flag on a subnet pool that has been failed over and failed back such that the SmartConnect Zone has an igls-original prefix due to the fact that on a subsequent failover the igls-original prefix will not be removed and will leave the Access Zone in a state where both directions are failed over.

Workaround:  Manually edit SmartConnect Zone on active cluster to remove the igls-original prefix.  Run Configuration Replication and then run the Failover Readiness job to update Zone Readiness.


T2479: Access Zone Failover fails between OneFS 7.2 clusters if Eyeglass also managing OneFS 7.1

For the case where Eyeglass is managing OneFS 7.2 and OneFS 7.1 clusters, an Access Zone failover between OneFS 7.2 clusters will fail as OneFS7.1 linmap command is attempted and fails.

Workaround: Access Zone failover in this Configuration is unsupported as for Eyeglass Inter-version management, it is expected to apply capabilities of lower versions to all versions being managed and Access Zone failover for OneFS 7.1 is not supported. No workaround required.


Known Limitations for Eyeglass Configuration Replication

Multi-Path Exports

T1359  Update NFS Multi-Path Export path(s) may cause transient Configuration Replication Error

Eyeglass uniquely identifies an NFS Export based on its path.  When the path is changed this results in a Create and Delete operation in Eyeglass.  It may occur that the create is attempted before the Delete is executed.  In this case a Configuration Replication error occurs.  This is automatically resolved in the subsequent replication cycle when the new export is successfully created.

Export cannot have multiple paths that span multiple Eyeglass Jobs

Export with multiple paths that are protected by different SyncIQ policies is not supported. This export configuration is not supported for DR as it would not allow per policy failover and is an unsupported configuration for Eyeglass.  The solution for this is to split the single export into multiple exports each with paths that correspond to a single SyncIQ policy. 

T1743  Multiple export with same path and same client do not show Configuration Replication Error

Multiple exports with the same path are required to have different clients in order to be replicated as per Isilon default behaviour.  In the case where they have been provisioned with same client, Eyeglass Configuration Replication will only show error for this condition on the second configuration replication cycle.

T1847  OneFS 8 Overlapping Access Zone Replication has error

In OneFS 8 where there are Access Zones have identical paths, Eyeglass Access Zone Replication will fail with the following error from the Isilon cluster:  AEC_CONFLICT “field” “path” “message” “access zone base path \*/ifs\* overlaps with base path \*/ifs/data/zone\* in Access Zone Use the force overlap option to override. In this case disable Eyeglass Configuration Replication Jobs for Access Zones and manually create the Access Zone on the target cluster.

T1972  Snapshot schedule replicated with offset

Snapshot schedule expiration offset has OneFS API bug that adds extra time to creation of the snapshot schedule.  This results in an expiration on the DR cluster, that can be greater than entered on the source cluster.   example expire in 20 days will be 22 days on the target cluster.  Different units of off set all result in a value greater than entered.   After failover the DR (target cluster) value will be synced back to the source (Prod cluster).  Thereby losing the original expiry off set  and extending the expire time by a new offset from the API error.  This has been raised with EMC as SR to resolve.

  1. Work around:  Before failover ensure a cluster report has been generated (cluster reports icon), or an existing emailed cluster report exists.   Post Failover re-enter the original values on the DR snapshot schedules using the cluster report values from the source cluster as a reference.

  2. Another option is disable Snapshot Sync jobs in the jobs window if the above workaround does not meet your needs to preserve expiry of snapshot settings.

T2046  Access Zone Replication limitation when all user mapping rules are deleted

Access Zone Replication successfully creates and updates user mapping rules and also successfully deletes user mapping rules except when all user mapping rules are removed from the source.  In the case where all user mapping rules are deleted from the source, the Access Zone configuration replication job will not delete all on the target - the user mapping rules remain on the target.

T2241  Incorrect missing SPN alarm issued when Isilon cluster joined to multiple Domains

In an environment where the Isilon cluster is joined to multiple Domains, the OneFS SPN check command for a specified domain returns list of SPNs from other domains and lists them as missing.  In this case Eyeglass issues an SPN alarm for missing SPNs based on the list returned even if there are no missing SPNs in the domain specified in the check command.

Known Limitations for Eyeglass General

T2289  Backup Archive Job is not always displayed in the Running Jobs window

In some cases after a Backup Archive job is initiated it will not appear as a running task in the Jobs / Running Jobs window.  Archive is still created and available for download on completion.
