Updated Expanded Universe Array Maximus, where?

I'm looking for an updated version of Expanded Universe Array Maximus that includes Data ONTAP 8.1 and FAS2240-x, the newest version I could find on Field Portal is from 2011-04-10!!

Re: Updated Expanded Universe Array Maximus, where?

Refer to the system configuration guides for maximums for the time being or see attached for 2012 hardware universe reference.  It includes 8.1 and the 2240-x.

Re: Updated Expanded Universe Array Maximus, where?

There is one slightly newer (from August 2011) on Hardware Universe pages:

https://tech.netapp.com/max801

It still doesn't cover either 8.1, or 2240, but you can find some details in the SE slide deck:

The hardware universe web site is a good interactive way to view controllers, shelves, cards, cables, etc.  A nice way to search and get output on the latest Hardware Universe database.  It is at http://hwu.netapp.com  

Re: Updated Expanded Universe Array Maximus, where?

Nice page - but as it says on the tin : nothing about software maximums (unless I am missing something).

Re: Updated Expanded Universe Array Maximus, where?

Under controller it shows the array max

Re: Updated Expanded Universe Array Maximus, where?

It lists max spindles, but doesn't show the usual stuff which is in Array Maximums pdf - max aggregate size, max volumes, LUNs, etc.

Re: Updated Expanded Universe Array Maximus, where?

The max array pdf must be managed by someone else separate from the hwu site. The key array max in that pdf (not all though) and one of the things with many manufacturers that is a pet peeve is having to lookup multiple points of secondary information.  Sysconfig guides, san guides, lots of places to collate info from.  I keep my own spreadsheet to compare all platforms and it must be at least 50+ documents collated to put it together...but worth having in one place.
