2 ISCSI connections from 2 servers to the same md3000i partition. Is this ok to do?
We have an md3000I which has an ibm file server attached to it via Iscsi.
In a bid to speed up our backups we have also run an ISCSI connection from the MD3000i to the backup server so these same partitions now show as local drives on the backup server also.
Within hours we have users saying that the files are corupt on the md 3000 and the file server attached to it no longer displays the drives.
We are running a disk check from the backup server which has made the drive visible on the file server again. once this is finnished we will dissconect the backup server.
What i was wondering is whether having two servers accessing the same partition at the same time on the MD 3000i is supposed to be ok or if it is totally the wrong thing to do?
