Re: PolyServe Forum?

If you hd to post a question, i'd probably use whatever forum it was pertaining to...

What OS is the cluster running? Linux? Windows? and is it a storage related problem?

Perhaps use both Linux/Storage and/or Windows/Storage forums when posting questions for the best coverage.

Re: PolyServe Forum?

My issue was mixed - the panic of wintel polysterve matrix nodes in a dual-fabric san when attached veritas netbackup media server tape device) (Sun L500 robots, sdlt600 tapes, is changed.

I posted on the storage/ tape library / tape devices forum, but it really is a very mixed san environment:

sun cluster, sun FCAL storage, HP EVA, Polyserve Matrix , CA, Vertias Netbackup 6.0 MP5 backups.

Re: PolyServe Forum?

Steven thanks for the reply. Mostly I am looking for a place that is specific to PolyServe Matrix server. I would suggest that a forum dedicated to PolyServe be created.

While I don't currently have a specific issue to post right now, I do like the ability to see how other PolyServe users have resolved problems in the past.

Ok, here is a question. What is the best way to install and configure SQL Server 2005 Analysys Services on a Matrix for HA? I can't find anything about it in the documentation or the technical knowledge base.

Re: PolyServe Forum?

I'd like to echo Don's comments over the creation of a Polyserve forum.

I'm sorry i can't comment over his point on analysis services as i've never done it.

My background is in unix/oracle clusters - new to Polyserve - and my perception is of a real paucity of in-depth knowledge - at least here in the UK.

I would also like to see a dedicated support forum.

Does anyone else find the HP website incredibly complex when trying to find resources related to PolyServe. I thought the ITRC would be the best place to come but the business support centre seems much better organised....

Re: PolyServe Forum?

Just to revive this the 3.6.1 documentation has notes about hosting analysis services on polyserve.

Just cant find anywhere to download it in the IRTC at the moment

Re: PolyServe Forum?

I'd also like to see a polyserve forum, and maybe a dedicated mini-site for all information relating to polyserve.

I joined the very exclusive :) polyserve club 2 years ago, before HP bought PS, and there was a serious lack of knowledge of PS here in Australia, not a great deal has changed.

Although I'm sure there are polyserve experts in HP, accessing them and the information stuck in their brains is not as easy as it could be.

I too believe that there should be a Ployserve forum.

I appreciate that I am not the only one the feels a need for this. So how about it HP? Can we have a PolyServe forum?

Re: PolyServe Forum?

There have not been many question in the storage sections so far (10? 20? at most). Why not use the, e.g. NAS or general category and see how many questions we get over the next 6 month.

Creating more and more forums for all kind of topics isn't the solution, beleive me. I have helped to manage a NOTES conference system for the DECUS Munich.

Re: PolyServe Forum?

PolyServe covers more than just general storage. Most likely the reason there are not many PolyServe specific questions, is because there is not a PolyServe specific forum.

Having users post problems and other users provide solutions is what a forum is all about. But without a PolyServe specific forum, I find myself opening up trouble tickets instead.

Unfortunatly, trouble ticket resolutions, don't have the same visibility as forums do.

Re: PolyServe Forum?

My specific PolyServe question has nothing to do with SAN, but everything to do with creating new SQL instances in PolyServe. It errors out on the 1st try, but succeeds if I try again. Does this mean I should find a SQL related forum?
PolyServe handles CIFS, SQL and Web.
I don't mean to gripe, but PolyServe is a bigger product than just SAN.
Respectfully,
Eric
PS- Am I blind or is there no way to do a search in these forums?

Re: PolyServe Forum?

Ok, I;m blind, I found the search "hidden" at the top of the page... ;-)

Re: PolyServe Forum?

Hi Eric. I agree. That's not really a NAS question. It is a PolyServe/SQL Server question.

Have you checked to see if there is anything about the error recorded in the directory C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\90\Setup Bootstrap\LOG?

In total agreement!

PolyServe is a great product that needs a community supporting it.

Time for a PolyServe forum!

Re: PolyServe Forum?

I have contacted forum admin to suggest that until it does this is probably a good place.

Put your questions here. People like me who use polyserve are here.
