ESS Solutions for  Open Systems Storage: Compaq AlphaServer, HP, and SUN

This IBM Redbook is designed to help you install, tailor, and configure the IBM Enterprise Storage Server (ESS) when attaching Compaq AlphaServer running Tru64 UNIX, HP and Sun hosts. We describe the results of a 5-week project that took place in San Jose in October and November 2000. This book does not cover Compaq AlphaServer running Open VMS. Rather, the project was focused on settings required to give optimal performance, device driver levels. As such, the book is intended for the experienced UNIX professional who has a broad understanding of storage concepts, but is not necessarily an expert in each of the areas discussed.

First, Chapter 1 provides a broad overview of the ESS. Then, Chapter 2 explains general connectivity issues such as switch zoning, multi-pathing, and volume management. Chapters 3 and 4 cover the attachment of Compaq AlphaServers running Tru64 UNIX (V4 and V5 respectively), both for standalone and clustered configurations. Chapter 5 discusses HP servers. Chapter 6 discusses Sun systems, and also covers various aspects of using some of the Veritas suite of products.
