Network Storage Protocols Discussions
I wonder if some one is using NettApp for storage solution for OpenVMS environment?
And if how do you use.
Booting from SAN ?
Running DBOracle and Oracle RDB in a heavy production environment.
And if i have put this question in wrong group please point me to the right place.
I will move this thread to our product and solutions area for more visibilty.
I would also like to have some information.
I would only like to know if it'll work with older version of OpenVMS (7.1) with Boot on San. We won't need support as it is archives.
yes it does work,
I've done one install a couple of years ago of a OpenVMS cluster running Oracle FCP - booting from the SAN as well as a couple of Tru64 alphas also booting from the SAN. I believe it was openvms 7.1
we support openvms on a pvr basis only,
have no idea what is the case for tru64.
Thank you for your answer.
Any particularity to take into account when connecting to the NetApp (igroups - zoning - etc ...) ?
yes there are some best practices settings that you need to follow - glad that you asked as I had forgotten about them
will look into where I have that .doc and upload it here tomorrow
see .pdf attached,
and enjoy your openvms on netapp
Thanks for informatione.
Du you run OpenVMS and NetApp om your site?
And if what version on Openvms and type of HW ?
We will run (if we use NetApp) OpenVMS 8.3-1h and 7.3
HW Itaniumblade and Alpha servers.
