MetroCluster and PAM modules

Hi,

Is it supported to use PAM modules on MetroCluster configurations?

Thanks.

Ricardo.

Re: MetroCluster and PAM modules

I reckon it is supported.

System Configuration Guide (http://now.netapp.com/NOW/knowledge/docs/hardware/NetApp/syscfg/) has some red flags re MetroCluster & expansion cards (e.g. 8Gbit HBAs), but nothing regarding PAM.

Regards,

Radek

Re: MetroCluster and PAM modules

Right now the main gotchas I know of around MC and compatibility....

  • Can only use certain FC disk HBA's
  • Can't use SAS disk at all and can't use SATA disk for Fabric MC
  • Can't do certain reallocate commands

But no, no PAM issues fortunately (although on a 31x0 box you may be tight on slots to do PAM given Fabric MC has an extra card taking up a slot).
