i recently went to customer who had 20 storage groups. we sold them window bundle pack and the now pain begins. we installed snapdrive 6.3 and now it takes lot of time to enumrate disks since the guys has 20 luns and each storage group has lun and we have common log location.
i tried netapp support and they kept on asking to give logs , i tried to consildate four storage groups per lun and now snapmanger for exchange doesnt work. i have read best practices and now i am all confused whether to use the volume mount option or not . cant we override the snapmanger for exchange config wizard. ther should be way to do this. the enviroment is exchnage 2007 with windows 2003 cluster
please understand that snapdrive has problem when enumeration of disks when they are above 10 and in this case the snapmanager exchange needs lun per storage group and it would actuall be more than 20 . my connectivity is fiber channel.
my patch level should be problem when i reduce the number of luns it works fine.
