Talk:SAN Box used via iSCSI
- Explicit device-thresholds seems to be useless, Solaris powers down everything it can. Should try an explicit device-thresholds with system-threshold always-on.
- Even with tpg defined, a target still listens on all NICs, but the port seems to taken into account....... Bug?
- Why format does protest with:
WARNING - This disk may be in use by an application that has modified the fdisk table. Ensure that this disk is not currently in use before proceeding to use fdisk
Thus requiring to manually create a partition with format -> fdisk before being partitioned? ZFS/COMSTAR bug? It does not seems to be a thin provisioning issue at first glance.
- What about 4k sector alignment required by new hard-drives? iSCSI is transparent for that?
Have you updated this box to the Solaris 11 Released version?
Any other reports of additional/different hardware setups? This setup is about $1,000 US. Though the motherboard is now kinda hard to find.
