Sun StorEdge9980

Hello,
I would like to know if it is mandatory to install Sun StorEdge Traffic Manager on a rp4440 server so as to have high-availability features (link failover). The server is connected through two switch fabrics to a Sun SE9980 disk array.
Thanks in advance.

Re: Sun StorEdge9980

As the Sun SE9980 is just a HDS Lightning 9980, I presume that Traffic Manager is in fact just HDLM.

Assuming that's the case, then no you don't have to use Traffic Manager.

As well as using Traffic Manager, you can either just use LVM PVlinks for failover, or get VxVM and use Dynamic Multi-Pathing for failover/load balancing.
