Re: free and frictionless version ? does it really exist ?

So am I the only one that is having problems installing the “Free and Frictionless” version of IsilonSD Edge?

Hello All,

I started by downloading IsilonSD Edge from this page:

IsilonSD Edge Download

According to:

the free and frictionless version comes with: Dell EMC Isilon – SmartConnect, SnapshotIQ, SmartQuotas, SmartPools and InsightIQ, SyncIQ.

This doesn’t appear to be the case because once you deploy this on a vmware cluster all of these options appear to need a license.

I had thought that maybe I still needed to “Activate” my free and frictionless version but when I go to the page and upload the license file to generate the actual license to download (mind you I selected only the above free options (SmartConnect, SnapshotIQ, SmartQuotas, SmartPools and InsightIQ, SyncIQ.) it tells me to call 1800-782-4362. I did so and pressed option 4 to talk with someone in licensing who basically said that the free and frictionless version does not require a license. Well if that’s the case how do you active the SmartConnect, SnapshotIQ, SmartQuotas, SmartPools and InsightIQ, SyncIQ????

I realize that is says its only free for NON-Production use, which is exactly what I am setting this up for. I would like to run this at home in a vmware cluster in my basement. This would be used as a test cluster so that I can learn and implement things without having to try to do these things in a production environment and break stuff.

Re: InsightIQ stopped sending emails


If SMTP server answers, then do a self test email on IIQ webUI, then check the /var/log/insightiq.log. Hopefully it will give you the error.

Re: RecoverPoint SE – CG’s initializing after power failure – risks?


Our PRI site has many power issues, and we have experienced several 2-3 hour power outages this year (five of them). After the site recovers, all of the CG’s which repl to our SEC site go into “initializing”. Despite several requests to properly protect this site with either a generator, or colocate the VNX2 into a proper datacenter, I would like to present the risks of these numerous power outages.

* If a RP CG is initializing, what would happen if the power goes down again during this time? Would we loose the ability to failover?

* If a CG is initializing, does that mean we cannot failover should something else happen that might require a failover?

* Each power outage usually requires RP to initialize back up, and will take around 3-4 days before everything is “green” and working properly again – what risk do we have during initialization of the CG’s?

* We have CG’s from our SEC site to our PRI site as we have a small infrastructure serving up VM’s in that location, and those CG’s remain “green”.

Smart Devices and Services Are Driving Edge Computing. Is Your Organization Ready?

The fourth wave of computing is being driven by a combination of forces – organizational demands to increase revenue, profitability, and serve customers better as well as robust use cases that can be solved by the latest technology advances. The first wave of computing started with centralized mainframes, the second wave swung to distributed use of client-server-PCs, and the third wave shifted back some to centralized cloud computing. Now, the fourth wave, which is also called “distributed core” or “fog computing”, distributes computing back to the sources of data and consumption of services.
