Hello Walden, I don't have any direct experience with the EMC product line, but here's my input. How will you be attaching the SAN to the 400 ? Fiber/iSCSI ??? >From my understanding there are a couple ways to use a SAN: 1.) Direct attached to the 400 (iSeries :-) ). If you're right and you're simply creating an ASP, you should have no technical issues. The SAN disk should just look like IFS storage. EMC probably has SAN management software you'll use to partition the disk if it will be shared between the AS/400 and other servers. 2.) If you are not direct attached to the SAN, you can map access to the SAN through a NAS device and use FTP/NFS/QNTC file access methods to read/write data to the shared storage. Which imaging product a will you be using this with ? Your vendor should hopefully have some insight on this. Regards, Richard Schoen RJS Software Systems Inc.

Leverich" <WaldenL@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx> subject: SAN Attached to iSeries - Anyone? We're looking at attaching an EMC SAN to the iSeries. We would most likely be using the storage space for image files stored in the IFS and defining as ASP just for that purpose. 1) Anyone have experience attaching EMC SANs to V5R2 iSeries? Good or Bad. (Yes, EMC, not Shark) 2) Since we are using this storage in a separate ASP for IFS storage I don't really care about the iSeries doing a scatter load of disk. Do we have to define the space as lots of small drives, or will the iSeries support a single 2TB drive?
