I am currently assembling a storage lab, and need to add some disk arrays. There are many out there that are just regular fc-al devices that don't support flogi (public). Can someone tell me what are some arrays which I can target that may be cheap (<$500 or so on ebay), older, etc. They don't have to have large disks in them, but I would prefer to stay optical.
So far I see the NetApp DS14Mk2's are one option. The ideal box would be 2U or so and not a big power sucking array that I need a forklift to rackmount :).
inch, thanks. My understanding is that the A5XXX sun JBOD's are not fabric aware, that they are just FC-AL private loop devices. I am not sure of the T3's but I thought perhaps the same. I am specifically looking for something that I can do a FL port with the MDS, instead of a TL port.
no reason why private wont work. Three of my JBOD's in my lab are private and I just wanted one that was public to have some variety. I heard Gen2 doesn't support TL ports anymore, and I may want to play with gen2.
