Need help setting up the physical connection to a SAN
Posted on 2008-06-19
Hi, We currently have an HP Fail over Cluster using an MD1000. Our Co-Lo vender has sold us an option to setup a SAN using their storage with our server. Unfortunately they don't appear very bright and haven't been able to help in setting up a connection.
Servers are HP DL-380 G3
OS Windows 2003 SP2
Cluster is Hot Standby (Active/Passive)
We can connect fine to their SAN, but the cluster servers see 2 different LUN's. Having never done this before, I'm assuming that when I configure the SAN, (before placing it in the cluster resource), both should share or see the same LUN just like a shared folder on a file server. (but I'm guessing).
We are using QLogic's iSCSI HBA's, and the backend server storage is an is707 Silicon Mechanics StorForm server. (the Co-Lo's) I've configured the server to see the SAN just fine, but it appears to be 2 different LUN's, versus both talking to the same LUN.
One thing I did notice (which is probably why they see 2 different LUN's) is that the IP addresses are different.
If you've done this in the past and are willing to help, I'd be greatful!!!.
