Connecting multiple servers to a SAN
Posted on 2008-10-08
I guess by default , you can't connect multiple servers to the same LUN on a SAN. But I know there are options. Here's what I'm attempting to do.
Our users work in a terminal server environment. Currently, we keep the DFSRoot directory on the SAN. When a user logs into a terminal server, their profile is loaded over ethernet fom the domain controller that is fiber connected to the SAN. Moving forward, we been buying servers with fiber cards so that we can connect the term servers directly to the san to load the user profile over fiber. In the reading I have been doing on the subject, it seems this cannot be done by default.
What I'm trying to determine is if there are any 3rd party options for doing this or something I missed within windows that would also enable this to be done.
The SAN is a Dell/EMC AX100
Thank you very much in advance for your help.
