  1. Starting over with new drives

    Other questions/comments on tuning . . . I plan to set my logical disks in RAID 6 configuration, if it makes a difference. I also am curious about the preferred Stripe Size. I am considering 1024 on that. Any reasons pro or against? What are most people using for that? Should I crank it to 4096? I am also going to finally change all my users' connections to a network MTU of 9000 instead of 1500, and change those settings in the EVO as well. Any reason not to? Does it actually help? Should that affect my choice on stripe size? or should I do a custom MTU that is divisible by base2, like 2048, 4096, or 8192? Does any of this matter at all?
  2. I have an EVO with both SAN and NAS volumes. I am replacing drives. I created the new Disk Pool successfully. I then create a Logical Disk (RAID). I add it as a Fiber Channel Target. I add it as a iSCSI target. I use the GlobalSAN initiator to connect to the logical drive. So far, so good, I think. Now is when it needs to be formatted. There seems to be no tool within the EVO to do this, and it seems you are supposed to do it from your OS. I am Mac OSX 10.10.5, and so I format in DiskUtilities. I have also done command line diskutil formatting and with the same results. (I'm not huge into command line stuff, but i figured that one out with some googling) My new SAN logical drives show up very differently than they used to. In the EVOShare browser, they appear Black with a Blue center instead of Gray/Green/Red (depending on mount status) that they used to. The old way had SANmp logo on the icon, and a space above the icon where it showed the mount R/RW status. The new ones aren't that way. They cannot be unmounted in ShareBrowser. In Disk Utilities, my old SAN Logical Disks show up with the following info Name : SNS_EVO A-EditSAN1 Media (OLD Logical Disks) Type : Disk Partition Map Scheme : SNS_partition_scheme_v1 Disk Identifier : disk3 Media Name : SNS_EVO A-EditSAN1 Media Media Type : Generic Connection Bus : iSCSI Device Tree : IODeviceTree:/ Writable : Yes Ejectable : Yes Location : External Partition Type : Core Storage Owners Enabled : No The NEW SAN Logical Disks show up with the following info: Name : SNS_EVO D-teststripe4096 Media (NEW Logical Disks) Type : Disk Partition Map Scheme : GUID Partition Table Disk Identifier : disk2 Media Name : SNS_EVO D-teststripe4096 Media Media Type : Generic Connection Bus : iSCSI Device Tree : IODeviceTree:/ Writable : Yes Ejectable : Yes Location : External Format : Mac OS Extended Owners Enabled : Yes Notably, the Partition Map Scheme and the Partition Type are quite different. What am I doing wrong here? How do I get the drives formatted in the proper fashion, assuming HFS+/non-journaled is the way to go? Any help appreciated.
