What driver/software are needed for Linux RHES 5.1 to connect to NetApp SAN
Posted on 2008-06-12
We've laid the SAN fibre cables to connect the RHES 5.1 server's Emulex ports to
NetApp SAN switch.
I found following 2 software in our folder which I believe my predecessor probably
1)FCP Linux Host Attach Kit 1.0.zip (abt 482kb)
- is this the driver that needs to be installed on the Linux server so that
Linux can communicate with the Netapp SAN filer?
2)FCP Linux Host Utils 3.0.zip (about 510kb)
- is this the tools needed on Linux so that it can view/manipulate the SAN
Any guess is most welcome
Any other things I need? The two RHES Linux server will probably be
clustered (done by someone else, not me) for Oracle RAC. The SAN
disk partitons will be accessible by both the Linux Oracle RAC servers.
