    For shares, its much better to use CIFS directly on the box rather than running the file share through VM's.
    We have all our shares, user docs/profiles, media reosurces on a 7310 for 1500 pupils and 140 staff. Doesn't break into a sweat and has some much nicer features than Windows shares (very reliable shdow copy for a start - we now have over 200 days shadow copies, 1-3 times a day on all our shares). Performance is far superior to WIndows server shares, what was taking 8 Windows file servers to do is now being done by the 7310 with far better performance.
    We also have 2 x 7110 which are being used for VM's. We have 15 VM's running on one of the 7110's without a problem and speedwise it's excellent. The second one is about to be used for our Windows Server 2k8 R2 VM network. We use NFS on a private network, work fantastically well.

    What does the OS run off on the 7110? Flash? A disk in the array? The specs show 14x146 or 14x300, but there's 16 drive bays. I guess two of those are for the mirrored OS?

    Yes you are exactly right - 2 of the 16 disks are for the O/S/Firmware and the other 14 are for the actual data.

    Hey guys,

    I'm trying to run the simulator in VirtualBox. I've got the network up and I'm trying to set up Active Directory. When I enter my domain and admin credentials it tells me:

    "The attempt to join the Active Directory domain failed either because the clocks of the appliance and the domain controller are skewed or the administrative user does not have the appropriate permissions to create a computer account in Active Directory."

    The time is within seconds of the DC (they both sync off ntp.gov) and the admin permissions I'm using work on everything else I've ever used to join to the domain (including a linux based NAS).

    Any suggestions?

    Patch it to the latest level, Q2.5.1 Software Updates - Fishworks - wikis.sun.com.
    Then try reducing the LAN Manager compatibility level under the CIFS service.

    I dropped LMCL to 2. According to the system I am up to date.(I think?) Can you even patch a simulator?

    Yes you can patch the simulator, but I've had problems with the Q3 patch on VirtualBox.
    So stick with Q2.5.1

    I'm just throwing ideas around here, but... are the time zones both set to the same on the SAN and DC (it'll be using UTC most likely so this shouldn't make any difference), maybe set up the DC as an NTP server and get the SAN to sync straight to it, try using a different account (most people would use the domain admin account I guess) to connect with.

    I'll double check the timezones, but I'm pretty sure that's good. I've also tried 3 different 'admin' level accounts, no love.

    I can join Linux machines to the domain, just not Solaris thus far.

    Sun 7000 Roadmap

    Four new Sun Open Storage models revealed

    Roadmap Image

    Sun may be preoccupied with its pending Oracle acquisition, but its open storage development engineers seem to be working full pelt to strengthen its offering as fast as they can.
    Big new shiny boxes with flash things in them and SAS2, yaaaay!

    Ohh they look nice and shinnnny . If Sun wants to donate me an Anago or two for testing purposes I'd be more than happy to help out . Not sure what I'd do with all that storage space but I'm sure we could think of something!

    if you knew whayt I know and had an appreciation of how big an Anago can go I'm not sure you'd have enough data to fill one... :-)

    so with the simulator the easiest thing to do is start with the basic download from Sun.com or off the DVD copy (If you need a DVD then drop me a message with your address and I'll pop one in the post).

    Once you have configured your simulator and before you create any shares update to the latest 2009.Q3 release.

    this should "take".

    Mine did under both VMware and VirtualBox. Personally I find the simulator runs faster under VB than VMWare but that might just be me....

    Cheers,

    Phil
