How do I connect external devices to the SCM?
View the back of the chassis, and select the SCM. Select Actions - Expansion Port. Choose the module that will use the external device, and click Apply.
See the Promise* VTrak Connection Guide for more information.
Can a Shared LUN be used with external devices?
A Shared LUN can only be used with virtual drives within the chassis.
yikes that is going to cause me issues. This has two blades installed with XEN server installed on them. The plan was to create a new shared LUN using the new drives in the enclose so that we can use this for fail-over. :-(
So i guess my only option if i want to use a shared LUN with this chassis is to use ISCSI, unless anyone knows a way around this limitation?
interesting question. I am using vmWare on our two CMs, and would face the same problem "shared LUNs".
I would add:
could a storage offer two LUNs for the same VDD instead?
That would move the responsibility to the storage system?!
just an idea...
I have taken a different approach:
We are currently swapping all drives to 1800 GB-Drives and that will give us enough storage.
Test have finished and conversion starts this week.
Just a though...
