OpenVMS Connectivity

bjerka

Hi,

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.

Thanks,

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.

jcosta

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 ...) ?

jcosta

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
