    I haven't upgraded yet but the more I read the changelog the more awesome it looks!

    • iSCSI performance improvements sound really good, even if NFS does look like the better protocol for virtualisation
    • Quotas will make a lot of people happy, even if it's not quite at the Windows FSRM level yet
    • Triple parity RAID is cool now disks are so cheap, are we calling this RAID-TP?
    • Enable/disable Logzilla for each share - does this work on-the-fly and as such can be used for easy performance testing?
    • Enhanced MMC support - Woo, my NetApp box kind of did this but it was always a pain. Is the S7000 simply a case of Computer Management > Connect to another computer > S7000 hostname?
    • Configuration backup = peace of mind for testing things!


    Cheers Phil, looks like the Fishworks guys are working hard!

    Roch Bourbonnais @ Sun, has two excellent blog entries about the performance enhancements of the Q3 update on iSCSI and the new "write bias" property.

    Bizarre ! Vous avez dit Bizarre ?

    I had a quick glance over that and it all sounds good. I must admit the Sun blogs are definitely better than what most companies have, Brendan Gregg's is like an S7000 PR/promo blog just because it makes everything look so good!

    Nice to see them talking about getting past the bus limits and heading for 10Gb and 40Gb. What the heck's that glowing green and orange box the S7000 is sitting on though?!

    John, let us know your problems.

    I've heard about upgrade issues. Sun support guys are currently recommending upgrade to Q2.5 before upgrading to Q3.

    I already had Q2.5, basically it made my box, under "load" (thats 150 students hitting save from all over the campus etc), kernal panic and reboot, nice at the end of lessons where a few mins before the end of the lesson when teachers traditionally tell you to save before logging off, packing your bags etc it just went AARGH and restarted and thus due to time, kids click happy etc they lost work (note thats not the SAN its kids and no time to wait for it to come back up etc), so queue not happy teachers and Management as all work, shared areas, finance, profiles, documents etc are on the SAN.

    Its been escalated to top guys in Sun as a bug that needs fixing, so I cannot use the new one, had to roll back to the previous version (which was easy done using the one button to roll back ) As I hadn't applied the deferred updates to update the system for the Quotas etc.

    Thanks for the heads-up! I was going to upgrade on Friday but think I might wait for Q3.1.0 now!

    I was also due to upgrade this weekend, but didn't get the time to update. Seems like I might wait a little while to roll it out

    I will say I do believe, and Kim will know better, but I think I am very much on my own out of Cutter Customers with this issue, and fairly rare in the world of Sun with it.... (just had to be me didn't it!)

    Knowing my recent luck I can see it happening to me as well
