Walden -

1.) We have a Shark currently attached to our 810 running V5R2.  At my
previous company we had an EMC attached to a 640 on V4Rx.  The EMC did need
to be taken offline a couple of times to reformat drives, but that was 5
years ago and I would hope that they have workarounds for those situations
by now.

2.) The IFS does not support user ASP's.  If you want to define your SAN as
a user ASP you will need to create a UDFS and attach it to an IFS directory.
Your drives will be defined as something that OS/400 supports and will be
determined by the EMC unit.  Ours are defined as 70.5GB 2105 drives.

Feel free to contact me offline if you want to discuss details.

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?
