Maximum number of LUNs, recommended size in EMC?
Posted on 2007-04-09
We are working on creating a file cluster and being that I'm unfamiliar with the EMC SAN we have, I figured I'd ask some questions...
First, my boss suggested to make multiple LUNs with say, 100GB size. He said that the SAN chokes if you have instead, a single big LUN of say, the 2TB we need. I always thought that the SAN was smart enough to figure out the allocation of resources without having to split up the LUNs into smaller sizes.
Secondly, what is the maximum number of LUNs that Windows 2003 supports? It was the question he originally had for me, and the one to which I don't have an answer either.
Thanks for any insight, and any further information would be greatly appreciated.
