Disk Shadowing Geometry, Size Restrictions?

» close window

The Question is:

1. The 7.3 documentation states that shadowing
between two physical drives is allowed if they
have the same number of physical blocks.
Does that imply a drive with x cylinders,
y sectors, and z tracks can be shadowed with
a physical drive with y cylinders, z sectors,
and x tracks?  I am referring to HSG drives.
2.  Any idea of what future version of VMS will allow drives with different
 numbers of blocks
to be shadowed.  E.g., shadow a 4.3GB drive
into a 9.1GB drive.

The Answer is :

  Please see topic (4715).
