So, based on mike99TA's thread, I figured we have enough SAN admins in this forum to answer any questions that the rest of you may have about SAN or storage in general. I have experience with HP Storageworks XP12000, XP1024 and XP512 (which equate to HDS USP/Tagmastore, 9980 and 9960), HDS 9500 series, AMS500 and 9200, EMC DMX3 and Clariion CX300. I've worked with all kinds of Brocade switches from the 2Gbit 8-port switches up to 4Gbit 48000 director class. I also worked with EMC's Celerra NAS device and ADIC i2000 tape libraries (others as well, but most aren't really worth mentioning). Anyway, I don't know how successful this will be, but ask away. I figure between Mike99TA, crontab and I, we could provide some info. Maybe even figure out an EDU that would be worth writing based on questions.
