Nice article about VMWare storage acronyms, concepts and terminology.

Today i found a nice blog artible describing the working of VMWare Storage.

This article helped me finding an answer to the following question:
Why it takes a while for a returned IO path to actually process IO?

The answer: The PSP check every 300 seconds if the path is active again. SATP is responsible for doing the failover.

You can find the article here

Ever needed to uninstall installed features from your VNX?

This option is not available in the Service Manager until you press Ctrl-shift-f12 and enter the password SIR (or messner)

This command let you enter the engineering mode.
