A question came up in a today at work that I answered and I thought it might be a good topic for a quick blog post:
How do you change your connection key for FlashArray replication?
The question misunderstands what the connection key actually is, so let me explain.
When you connect one FlashArray to another, you need three pieces of information:
- The FQDN or IP for the management address of the remote array
- The FQDN or IP for the replication address of the remote array
- A connection key
