Is it possible to connect G200 Storage with 16 Gbps Front end ports directly to two Oracle RAC Nodes( Dell Server). The Operating system is Windows 2016
Let me know if there are any issues which will be encountered.
Direct attach is supported. It needs to be Point to Point for 16G. You can find this and other information in the Provisioning Guide.
Thankyou. ( Point to Point means the Each port from each Storage controller's getting connected to a Host of dual HBA without SAN Switch in between.)
Because the Provisioning guide shows the switch in between. Bit confusing. Could you clarify it please.
Direct attach means no switch between the HBA and the storage port.
Point to Point is a Fibre Channel protocol mode and is an alternative to configuring the port to use Arbitrated Loop (FC-AL). In the provisioning guide you will find tables for each I/O board model indicating when to use which mode depending on the physical connectivity (direct attached vs switch attached) and speed.
