Third-party Storage (EMC)?

» close window

The Question is:

We have a SAN connected by two Connectrix at two sites, supporting different
 flavors of platform like Sun, HP, digital, etc
When we activate a modified Zone set, it's normal a very little disconnection
 between the switch and the hosts, but it's so small that the hosts (Sun
 Solaris) only have a warning (message of offline disks and then returned to
 online) in less than a second
 (flicks). That didn't happen with a Compaq GS160 (OpenVMS 7.2, HBA KGPSA-CA
 emulex); when we activate the new zone set the system crashes (some disks in
 non verify state)
Do you know somebody who is using Connectrix and some OpenVMS system or similar?
or some list in internet who can help?
Thanks in advance

The Answer is :

  Please see various other discussions of third-party hardware here
  in the Ask The Wizard area -- issues of device [in]compatibility
  can involve a difficult and lengthy resolution process.  Please
  contact your support organizations, and specifically please contact
  the organization supporting your storage -- the resolution of this
  (unspecified) system crash will likely involve the assistance of
  both your storage support vendor and your OpenVMS support vendor.
  As this initially appears to be a problem with EMC storage or with
  the EMC configuration, please contact EMC for assistance.
