Solution : You get this error message if you didn’t run "IBMSVCSRAUtil" as per IBM documentation. This helps to test remote site replicated Mdisk.
Open IBMSVCSRAUtil from Start – Programs- IBM Corporation –Launch IBMSVCSRAUtil.exe ( As administrator) – if you don’t run as administrator, IBMSVCSRAUtil window will not be closed after entering Mdisk number and press OK.



Leave all defaults except changing “Test MDisk GroupID”
IBM SVC SRA Utility

Perform above steps at both Protected and Recovery site.
After this step, go back to “Add Array Manager” and enter details. This time you will be able to add IBM Storage array.
