Hi Sun Gurus
I did not get any perfect answers for my question but there were couple of
useful mails from
All of them seem to agree that the NA 5000 is a good product and works fine
with EXX00 servers.
The Enterprise Volume Manager 2.5 is also considered quite stable. But no
word on EVM 2.6 yet.
I have got confirmation from Sun that the commands used in EVM 2.5 and EVM
2.6 are same.
So I guess that it is worth giving it a try.
Thanks to all who replied . Please send me any info yet if any one of you
find it usefull enough.
My earlier mail is enclosed below. I am sorry for being late to summarize
but I was all the while
waiting for some more answers.
