RE: experiencing link breaks on filer hba's

Since it's BOTH FC ports on both heads at the same time, I'm inclined to
believe your switch rebooted.  Have you checked the logs to see if
that's the case?

Since it's on multiple adapters and started happening at the same
time... 

Double-check that all firmware levels matrix into a supported
configuration (hosts, switches, ONTAP). I've run into these issues when
one group decides to update firmware on one component and doesn't inform
involved groups.

I'm assuming you have support -- I'd recommend opening a NOW case or one
through your reseller after you've checked the basics.

Snapdrive 4.2 and the new MPIO

 I have a windows 2003 R2 install with SD 4.2 and MPIO 3.2. I have
Emulex 11000 cards and ontap 7.0.3. I understand that the drivers for
the Emulex are unsupported on 7.0.3. However the luns map through snap
drive and they map manually fine.

My issue is in snap drive when I go to connect or create a disk it will
get to the point where it will map it. After that it just hangs with a
timeout after 10 mins. If I go to disk mgmt I can format and give it a
drive letter and then it will show up in snap drive.

Any ideas?

Quick question about DFM

Is Net App now changing for DFM?
Was just on Now and I noticed our DFM has expired so I cannot download a newer version.

Grant,

You can download the newer versions of DataFabric Manager if you renew
your service and support program (SSP) contract.

optimize volume/qtree for oracle db

Hi,

currently we are running an oracle db on an FAS6070c and today we had
some complaints that for some hours operations which use a lot of
getattr-ops, like ls -la does, are slower than they used to be.

An oracle-colleague told me that he thinks there is a best-pratcise for
volumes with oracle-db inside which describes something that boosts up
getattr's.

I did not find anything appropriate on NOW. Has anybody ever come
accross this issue?

Best Regards and thanks in advance

Jochen

RE: optimize volume/qtree for oracle db

Jochen
I don't have the answer to your question but I do have a question for
you.
We have an Oracle db here that the dba wants to run it on an EMC system
using RAID 10. We would have to buy the system but since we already have
NetApp I am trying to convince him that a NetApp system (FAS960 or
FAS3050) would do the job just fine. Can you let me know how you have
your Oracle on NetApp configured and how well it works for you?

Thanks
Mike Miller
