MSA 1000 Zoning Windows 2003

Hello,

we are using zoning(SSP) with our MSA1000 SAN Kit.
There are 3 Options for the Host-Mode (ACU 7.50.23.0):
- Windows
- Windows (degrade)
- Windows SP2_and_

Which is the preferred/best mode for Windows 2003 (R2)?
Are there differences between the options?
Maybe performance or so?

By the way:
Are there good tools/software for performance measurement?

Thank you very much.

Greetings

Marc

I always use 'Windows' and have no issues. For performance tests, we use IOmeter from INTEL. Google IOMeter and you should get the link. It has a PDF guide and is easy to install and run on windows hosts. It takes a bit of playing around to setup test configurations other than the stock set.
