Unable to configure hot backup copies due to ping/icmp being unavailable.

ISSUE

Hot backup copy configuration fails because the host is not reachable via ICMP/PING when adding a target to a source.

RESOLUTION

Run this on source to temporarily override the ping check, then attempt setup again.

sed -i "s/elif \[ \$ret -eq 1 \]/elif \[ \$ret -eq 100 \]; # Added '`date`' - Workaround for blocked ICMP requests/g" /usr/bp/bin/cmc_replication

CAUSE

Hot copy configuration uses ICMP/ping as a requirement.
