SAN switch, configuration, # of ports, ports used, connected HBA’s or storage controllers, model, [...]

We have been using Symantec EnterpriseVault (EV) for a few years now and it works very well for us. There are two dedicated servers that handle the journaling and the archiving to our Centera. We grew from four 75 GB stores for a few hundred emplouyees to now, where EV has about 7 TB archived [...]

There’s a possibility you’ll need to reinstall the MS hotfix for the storport driver. Check the vendor/tech support notes for your HBA. Run a emcgrab report on the host. and then run it through HEAT on powerlink. That is the quickest way to nail down any issues.

You would need to add in a fibre card into the VCB proxy host. Then zone and mask the same lun that is being seen by the sserver to this proxy host and then initiate a backup. There are vcb mount and unmount scripts that you would need to specify.

They both have very different uses. DAS is used to attach a group of hard drives directly to a physical server. This machine is the only one which can access the drives, unless you setup a network share (Windows) or a remote mount point (*nix) to allow other machines access over the network. A NAS [...]

Both actually. There are Hardware iSCSI initiators, and there are software iSCSI initiators. The hardware ones are cards which plug into the slots in the computer, where the software ones are software which runs on the computer. iSCSI runs over your normal ethernet network, so they will look like normal LAN ports. One of the [...]

All are good vendors but if cost is a major factor, I would recommend you lean towards Dell since they are really focus on the small and medium-size businesses unlike the other vendors.

It will actually go out to the physical port and come back in. VMware doesn’t make the assumption that the destination that the packets are going to are on the same server so it will send the traffic out to the network port which will then send it back to the other guest.

Automatically, no. You would need to handle that numbering yourself via your stored procedure code. —————— Or use an IDENTITY or SEQUENCE data type, depending on your RDBMS (DB2 and Oracle support these). Or maybe I don’t understand your question.

In reviewing Handy Backup website, it appears this software is more designed for home use. You may want to look at a business product designed for your server OS (Windows 2K3 example). Something like this probably would work for your environment size http://www.backupassist.com/index.html. It also has a plugin for SQL. Have you looked at amanda? [...]
