Sun Fire[tm] V480: Configuration Information

Supported Disk Backplane Cabling Diagrams
V480 FC-AL Disk Backplane with Single Loop (A)
V880 V480 FC-AL Disk Backplane with Dual Loops (A and B)

Disk Backplane Cabling Notes:

  1. When Loop B is configured, the external Port 1 of X6727A (375-3030) card cannot be used for additional external storage. This would extend the internal loop B outside of the box, which is not supported. Making use of the second external port off X6727A is supported.

Multi-Pathing Notes:

  1. Multi-pathing configurations on the V480's internal subsystem MUST be managed by Veritas VxDMP.
  2. MPxIO is not a viable solution at this time, due to the restriction that prevents it from supporting a boot disk.
  3. Any V480 that requires multi-pathing to the internal storage array may be quoted at a workgroup license fee rather than the departmental license fee.
