I have a question about Sun StorageTek Common Array Manager (CAM): What is the concept of 'host'? Is it the hostname of the server that has access to the managed array? If so, can I use its IP instead of its hostname?
I've found a 'host' under CAM called XYZ (See below). In our envrionment, there is no system using hostname XYZ. This makes me think the 'host' is not the actual hostname. It appears like a host alias used by CAM. Sun manuals don't give enough info about the concept, or I haven't found it. So please help!
How can I match/map a 'host' in CAM to a real host? How can you explain these words that sounds like a real host from Sun manual?
"A host represents a data host, which is a computer that is attached to the storage array and generates data to be saved in a storage array. The data host sends data to the storage array using a Fibre Channel (FC) connection. A host must have one or more associated initiators to enable you to map volumes to the host."
Bought a Sun StorageTek 2540 SAN array a few years ago from a company that was going out of business. When we first set it up, we were able to get all the software (Common Array Manager) and firmware directly from Sun.
We just upgraded the drives, but the array is too large for the firmware. Now... (6 Replies)
In Sun manuals, I didn't find how to backup Sun StorageTek Common Array Manager's configuration. Is there a way to do it like backing up Brocade switch configuration? CAM is under Solaris 10.
Thank you in advance! (0 Replies)
I have Sun StorageTek 2540 FC array and CAM works very slowly - I can wait for software response even more than 2 minutes... I run this software on Windows machine with Firefox Web Browser but speed is terrible... How can I make it works at least a little bit faster?.. (2 Replies)
Wondering if anyone can help me with mounting a file share from my Sun T2000 server running Solaris 10 to my connected 2530 disk array?
I believe Iíve connected the disk array correctly and I have created a volume on the array using the filesystem (Sun_SAM-FS, RAID-5).
The T2000... (15 Replies)
We have 12x1TB SATA disks in our array and I need to create 10TB volume. I defined new storage profile on array and when I tried to add volume, I faced with ~2TB limit for new volumes. I didn't find how to set another limit on my storage profile. Is there is a way to configure one large... (3 Replies)
