Fiber Channel HBA compatibility?
I'm afraid I don't have any input on hardware compatibility, but I do have a question or two of you! *
We recently setup up an iSCSI connection (over regular ethernet, not fiber channel) and we were getting great performance between a single target and initiator (iSCSI talk for server/client). *However, once we started running GFS on the target (central server), which is supposed to be a file system capable of handling the concurrent connection, performance plummeted to the point of making it unusable (we were trying to run a centralized /home for clustered LTSP servers).
What file system do you run on the central target and how is the performance?
Thanks for any input,Steve

We're running 2 HP LTSP servers that connect to a master server for all files, login, etc in a K-8 environment. *Currently, we're utilizing Ubuntu 8.10 LTSP but have a test server up for 10.04 LTSP. *Does anyone know of compatibility issues / problems with drivers in each of these distros with the possibility of installing a PCI-X fiber channel HBA in the LTSP servers to connect to the master server? *Is there an HBA card that is more compatible with Ubuntu drivers than others?
Thanks in advance,
