Many thanks to all those who replied.
The admin guides for Volume Manager can be found at
http://docs.sun.com:80/ab2/@DSCBrowse?storage=1 (thanks Ray and everyone
else who pointed me to docs.sun.com).
It was really interesting to hear that people are using SDS with the
A5000's. During the presentation I attended given by SUN UK last week I
was told quite emphatically that.
1 Only Volume Manager can be used with A5000
2 SUN do not recommend using RAID 5 on A5000 (apparently the performance
is quite poor)
3 There is nothing wrong with storing all your data, including the OS
filesystems, on the A5000
4 SUN also said that they intend to concentate on Volume Manager in
preference to SDS. The salesman stated that SUN didn't see a long term
future with SDS.
This information was expressed by one employee of SUN rather than a
corporate statement. However, at the time I had no reason to think that
this wasn't SUN's official view.
any comments welcome.
