Rick Crisci explains all paths fown (APD) and permanent device loss (PDL) conditions, and what responses can be configured in vSphere High Availability using Virtual Machine Component Protection (VMCP).
- [Teacher] In this video,…I'll explain the All-Paths-Down…and Permanent Device Loss conditions.…And I'll also explain how vSphere 6…High Availability can protect…your virtual machines when these conditions occur.…In vSphere 6.0, there is a new feature…called Virtual Machine Component Protection or VMCP.…And VMCP protects virtual machines…from storage connectivity issues…like a Permanent Device Loss…or an All-Paths-Down condition.…Now a Permanent Device Loss condition…is one in which the storage array…can still communicate with the ESXi Host,…and the storage array has experienced…some sort of failure, perhaps a failed LUN.…
When this happens, the storage array…sends a message called a Sense Code…to the affected ESXi Hosts,…and when the hosts receive that Sense Code,…they know that this affected LUN is down,…and therefore the host will stop…sending storage I/O to that particular storage array.…Now let's take a look at hosts and clusters,…and I'm going to create a new High Availability cluster.…And we'll look at how we can take advantage…
