Hi, I am just starting out on configuring HORCM. I am using the following guide, Hitachi CCI for Windows - HORCM configuration – OOIO IODUDE IOII and am current stuck with HORCM unable to start. Here's what i did so far:


1) Command Device created and Raw Devices mapped to VM. VM able to see it.


C:\HORCM\etc>raidscan -x findcmddev hdisk0,100

cmddev of Ser#93010653 = \\.\PhysicalDrive1

cmddev of Ser#93010653 = \\.\PhysicalDrive2

cmddev of Ser#93010653 = \\.\Volume{a1fb1a64-84d3-11e3-bee9-000c29657d27}

cmddev of Ser#93010653 = \\.\Volume{9d1a4c6e-6313-11e7-8d1a-000c29657d27}



C:\HORCM\etc>inqraid $Volume -CLI -fv

DEVICE_FILE                                                  PORT    SERIAL  LDEV CTG  H/M/12  SSID R:Group PRODUCT_ID

Volume{21aaff5b-e226-11e3-b2c6-806e6f6e6963}\Vol1\Dsk0       -            -     -   -       -     -       - Virtual disk

Volume{a1fb1a64-84d3-11e3-bee9-000c29657d27}\Vol2\Dsk1       CL1-A   93010653   103   -       -  0000 A:00011 DF600F-CM

Volume{9d1a4c6e-6313-11e7-8d1a-000c29657d27}\Vol3\Dsk2       CL1-A   93010653  1001   -       -  0000 5:00-00 DF600F-CM


2) My output in horcm0.conf & horcm1.conf located in C:\HORCM\config





#_ip_address service poll(10ms) timeout(10ms)

localhost horcm0 1000 3000








#_ip_address service poll(10ms) timeout(10ms)

localhost horcm1 1000 3000







3) Added UDP Port in C:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\services


horcm0 11000/udp    #horcm0

horcm1 11001/udp    #horcm1



4) The current output:



C:\HORCM\etc>Set HORCM_CONF=C:\HORCM\config\horcm0.conf


starting HORCM inst 0

HORCM inst 0 has failed to start.


5) Error From logs:

There is not a configuration file: C:\HORCM\config\horcm0.conf.

Make sure your env. variable HORCM_CONF points to this file

13:19:33-04268-06796- horcmgr:Failed to connect to HORCM.



I have no idea where or what is wrong. The horcm0.conf is definitely in the right location with all the read/write rights given to Everyone. I am at my wits end at this point on how to continue.


Please advise. Thanks.
