SBD Questions

Hello,

I want to create a Cluster on a IBM DS4800. So far I have finished my
planning for the Volumes with the exception of the SBD Partition. It
would be nice if somebody can give some advice on these two Questions:

- Should I create a own Logical Drive with a own LUN for the SBD or can
it also safely be created on a normal Volume Drive ?

- Are there any special settings I should set for the SBD, for example
for the cache ?

Thanks,
Reinhard

Re: SBD Questions

The SBD is only 10-20mb so having a whole drive for it is a waste. Use a
normal drive.

Not sure what you're asking with the cache question, do you mean RW
cache on the controller? It uses no NW cache; remember it's not a pool
or volume, just a partition.

Thanks, for the answer. Yes, I was meaning the settings on the controller.
