Implications of using vSphere4i with NetApp over NFS & FCP

eranb

Hi


a prospect is only using ESX3.5i (now upgrading to vSphere4i) and is considering migrating from EMC to NetApp.

Since we can't run ESX Host utilities, I know we won't have the MBRalign script (and other scripts).

What other functionality will I lose as a result ?

Thanks !

Actually, if running NFS you can work around the mbrscan/mbralign issue....

Beyond that, it's pretty much detailed here.
