Best Practices for the HPE EVA Storage Array

Review the following best practices before using HPE EVA.


  • Snapshots/clones are included in the maximum number of virtual disks per array.
  • The maximum number of snapshots per source varies based on the array access node software version. For more information, see the HP Enterprise Virtual Array compatibility reference.
  • Ensure that sufficient disk space is available for snapshot operations and the disk space used by snapshots is monitored frequently.
    The space requirement for snapshots created during IntelliSnap backup can vary based on your environment. The space utilization is dependent on the number of snapshots created and the retention period defined for the snapshots.
  • By default, IntelliSnap backup uses the first FC adapter that it detects. To use a different FC adapter, use the sSNAP_UseINITIATOR registry key.
