Data/Log devices on new Sun fast wide SCSI MultiPack don't work

Post by Jan us » Mon, 26 Aug 1996 04:00:00

Hello world,

Is this problem already known to the world? I tried to set up SQL Server on a SparcStation 20 running Solaris 2.4 equipped with the new
fast wide SCSI Swift Controller and a new Sparcstorage MultiPack with
7200 rpm disks. I created all the data and log devices on raw partitions
and immediately started receiving error messages (was it error 824?, in
any case something indicating a disk problem, at least according to
Sybase manuals). When I created everything using Unix files (on the
same disks!) there was no trouble at all. Are there any Sybase or Solaris
patches available to fix this - yes, I already asked Sybase and they don't
know, at least in Germany. It isn't very urgent since this is a development
environment I'm talking about so there is no demand for production
standards, but still I'd like to know.
Any hints will be greatly appreciated. Please answer via email.

1. Q: SUN Storage Array or Fast+Wide-SCSI ?

Hello Net!

Have anyone benchmarked SUN's SPARCstorage array vs. directly
attached FAST+WIDE SCSI-disks for a medium (4-8GB) Sybase 10 database?

I belive the disks delivered inside the storage array is "el-cheapo"
and you could easily buy 2-3 times faster fast/wide scsi and place
on two Sbus F/W-SCSI-controllers for less price than the SSarray.

Hw is SS/20 or SS/1000 with 2-4 processors. Op-system Solaris 2.4

Have anyone actually tried SparcStoragearray as database disk at all?

Will summarize if I get any answers.
