iSCSI managment tools

How is the storage off of the SN5420 managed? IOS-like and/or some web app or GUI ?

Is there a good reference for this? I'd like to support a solution similar to this in my organization instead of an NFS-based solution, but manageability will be a major factor.

Re: iSCSI managment tools

When you say managing the storage are you referring to administration of the disk array, RAID,LUN use, disk space requirements. If so the SN542X management platform does not manage the storage to that level. If you mean management of Host to Target access and what Host get what Disk, yes, the SN542X CLI and GUI give you the management control of that mapping. If the block level devices (storage) on the Fibre Channel network are accessable via the SN542X then the management interface on the SN542X has complete control of how the block level storage is distrubuted out to the iSCSI attached hosts. You will allocate or deallocate the LUNs on a Host by Host need.
