Ok I understand that OS should needed for SAN.
DO SAN have control station and data movers as NAS has? A bit confusion on this. and also would like to know what software is used for creating LUN in SAN storage.
I have Unisphere and Navisphere used in our hybrid model. But got confusion .
Hey try to attached the Driver as secondary drive and start copy all the data before the drive get died.
I can say that drive is nearly gonna die.
Start copy all the data immediately by attaching as a secondary drive.
I have a suggestion for attaching a lun with two Windows server.
If we create a LUN and attach this LUN as a Datastore in ESX.
Using 2 windows server ( that is 2 VM ) in this ESX, can the LUN be able to attach as a hard disk in these two windows server?
I am explaining this for the above qestion raised by me..
can any one please explain if is this possible or not. I have not tried it.
Once we created a LUN in SAN. for example the lun name is LUN1.
my questions is, Can LUN1 be able to attach as a drive in 2 different Servers. and the can it be able to access?
i think it wont ?
If not please provide your valuable answer.
That's really great to get this information.
and thanks for sharing the information.
And also i would say block level access is more faster compare to file level access.
Is there any opposition for this point?
From my knowledge i would say that,
SAN Can able to extend the Storage Box where is NAS cannot be able to extend Storage Box.
Can any one tell me, whether SAN has inbuilt Operating system like NAS has ?
