14 Waiting status of “eventwait” is complete in incorrect timing


Contents This is a COW - Snapshot or Shadow Image problem. In case that CTG group has two or more
LU pairs, waiting status of “eventwait” (CLI command) is complete before status of all pairs in
CTG group is "paired".
When all of the following conditions are met, the problem may occur:
A) CTG group has two or more LU pairs
B) LU pair of last number in CTG group becomes "paired" status before one of another LU pairs
becomes "paired" status

15 Controller is blocked when a simple trace is captured by Web
