What is a recommended guideline for merging two Fibre Channel fabrics?
Which three (3) processes occur during a fabric merge? (Choose three.)
A four-way cluster is attached to two fabrics. Each member has two HBAs connected to each fabric.
Each fabric has two subsystem connections. Each cluster member is a primary for one application. All
LUNs appear on all storage ports with workload equally distributed across all. Each host has two
dedicated HBAs for tape that can each see four independent LTO II (35MB/s) tape drives. All files are
large and involve sequential I/O. Performance reporting shows a large read pending at the host
during multi-threaded backup. What is the most probably cause for the large read pending at the host?
A customer has a SAS-based storage environment with a SAS domain and some standalone servers,
each with multiple built-in SAS disks. The implementation includes direct routing, table routing and
subtractive routing. What is table routing?
You have recently upgraded a tape drive on a older switch to operate at 120MB/s from 80MB/s.
Prior to purchasing the tape drives, you tested server dumps to a disk array across multiple ports
and saw speeds exceeding 150MB/s. With the new tape drive, you have not seen any dump speed
exceed 100MB/s. What is the most likely cause?
You have an existing disk subsystem with 16 drives that provides volumes for six Windows hosts on
2Gb/s links. You decide to add another 16 drive tray to double the number of raw hard drives in
order to support five (5) new UNIX servers. The average server throughput is 20 MB/s. The disk
subsystem is dual ported and configured active-passive. What is likely to occur?
You are about to allocate storage to a host that includes adding new paths, devices, and zones to the
configuration. What must be done prior to making any changes to the configuration? (Choose two.)
You are installing a x8 PCI-E HBA into a server and notice that you only have a x16 slot available.
What is the impact of this action?
What concept can reduce the number of ports required for ISLs?
