Has anyone experienced loss of server access to XIV storage? We have multiple sites with XIV storage and two of them froze causing servers to go down. Has anyone else seen this?

Software/Hardware used:
XIV Storage, VMware, Windows 2003

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

We have 22 XIV’s with over 12,000 virtual machines and 350 W2003 servers. No issues the last 2 years. Just bought 14 Gen3′s. Make sure you are at the latest level of MC and don’t path more the 6 ports to windows. In my testing I was able to freeze windows when pathing more that 6 ports per server. Interesting enough, my Linux and HP-UX can handle 12 port pathing from XIV. We moved from Vmax and DMX4 and our performance improved 60%. Don’t understand this magic but happy with it.
