Solaris QFS

Recently the customer I’m working for, asked to support him for a storage refresh project.
Host side he has multiple Vmware farms, Linux systems and three Solaris clusters running:

  • Solaris 10 on Sparc
  • QFS shared filesystem
  • Oracle RAC

I sincerely forgot tons of things about Solaris but I was happy to run “clq status” again, it was exciting 🙂

I also have the opportunity to play with QFS, I never saw it before. I’m dealing with an old version but I can’t wait to play more with sam* commands!!
I finally understand mcf file syntax and hosts file under /etc/opt/SUNWsamfs directory.
At same time I’m dealing with SRDF tasks, and I need to lear more about storage, EMC VMAX in this case 😀
