i got a couple questions. Ive never worked with cluster server or SAN before but would like to try. Couple questions. For a Fibre channel SAN does it require special SAN equipment (optical switch and cards) or is it just regular fiber networking equipment. I always see reference to 'fibre channel'. Also anyone succesfully set up a good simulation in VMware? The only thing i can think of is loading one machine as the drive array and trying to connect them through virtual SCSI bus. anyone got some advice?
