EADR. Linux SAN Boot.

Hi everyone, only a simple question..

 

Is supported EADR in a Linux Box (RH or SUSE) booting from SAN?

Hi,

 

it depends on your version of DP.

As far as I know with DP 6.2 it wasn't supported but with DP 7.0 at least it should work :-)

 

Best regards

Daniel

Data Protector 6.21 and 7.01 has been enhanced to support EADR for Boot from SAN installations on RHEL. SLES11 has just been added to 6.21 and might require a seperate fix from support. Refer to the following ERs.

 

EADR Support of SAN booting with Redhat 5.5/5.6

http://support.openview.hp.com/selfsolve/document/KM1305266

 

Support for Disaster Recovery for SLES 11 clients that boot from SAN

http://support.openview.hp.com/selfsolve/document/KM1397823

 

I had this discussion with a customer. For SLES, it might be best to choose to mount your filesystems by-label instead of by-uuid since your UUID might change if you want to restore to a different LUN on your disk array.

 

Regards,

Sebastian
