Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Assuming you are talking about files (not email or database data), then just create a file share on your solaris host’s LUN and access it from the linux server. If you need disk level access to the storage (for databases or email), you will have to attach the Linux server to the storage and carve it its own LUN.

    I need to know the type of storage you have. You say "SAN/ storage"- is this storage a separate device, or is it simply internal disks on your Sun server? If it's external, is it direct attached via SCSI or SAS? If it's not, then it's either a SAN (disk level access) or a NAS (file level access). Disk level access means it presents LUNs to a server and lets the server install what it wants on those, and file level access means that it has its own file system.

    The storage type is a external disk array attached to the Sun Server. I want to access the disk array from the Linux Server.
