Sunfire V440


SunFire v440 :
A42-XCB2-04HDSun Fire V440 Server, 2 1.28-GHz UltraSPARC IIIi Cu Processors w/ 1-MB Cache Each, 4-GB Memory, 4 73-GB 10000 RPM Ultra320 SCSI Disks, DVD-ROM, 2 Power Supplies, Solaris 8 Operating System


Sun StorEdge 3310 SCSI Array:
XTA3310R01A1R876Sun StorEdge 3310 SCSI Array, Rack Ready, 876-GB (12 x 73-GB 10000 RPM Ultra3 SCSI Disks) w/ 1 Ultra160 SCSI Hardware RAID Controller w/ 512-MB Cache, 2 AC Power Supplies, Sun StorEdge Configuration Service Software.



I have selected the above Sun Server and Storedge. Wtat is the required equipment for connecting these two(at both sides)? like dual channel SCSI Differential, SCSi Cables?

And any Disk management software like Solstice?


Thanks

Cables:

X1136A 0.8-Meter VHDCI/VHDCI SCSI Cable

X1137A 1.2-Meter VHDCI/VHDCI SCSI Cable

X1138A 2-Meter VHDCI/VHDCI SCSI Cable

X3830B 4-Meter Ultra160 SCSI VHDCI/VHDCI Cable

X3831B 10-Meter Ultra160 SCSI VHDCI/VHDCI Cable

HBA:

X6758A Dual-Channel Ultra3 SCSI PCI Host Bus Adapter

The 3310 you have already has a internal RAID controller for SVM or VxVM isn't required for managing the 3310.  But your internal disks need something so SVM or VxVM would work fine.  SVM is free while VxVM will cost you some money.

Thank you very much.

i will go for :
two number of "X6758A" adapters(one @ v440 and other @3310)

one number of "X3830B 4-Meter Ultra160 SCSI VHDCI/VHDCI Cable".

and VxVM for Disk Management.

is this OK?

     
             In this server, we r planning to install Oracle 10g on Solaris 9.

Pls suggest, if anything else  required.

Was just looking through some older open questions under the Solaris group and spotted this one. The x69758a HBA is compatible with both V440 and SE3310 according to http://sunsolve.sun.com/handbook_pub/Devices/SCSI/SCSI_Dual_Ultra3_PCI.html

One thought: is there a special reason that you would be handing over extra cash for VxVM? Under Sol 9 the bundled SVM is easily capable of doing anything VxVM can at no extra cost. I'd only look at VxVM for the ease of managing massive amounts of storage across racks of arrays.

Also the 3310 has it's own on-board logical volume management functions anyway.
