    Any special consideration when presenting LUNS from multiple SANS?

    thomps01 Hot Shot

      In my environment I have some high end storage arrays which have expensive disks and I also have a number of older EVA SANS which are cheaper but still perform well.

       

      I'd like to only use my high end storage for tier 1 virtual machines and everything else will sit on the EVA's as tier 2.

       

      Both SANS are connected to the same brocade directors and can have their storage zoned to my ESX hosts easily enough but I wanted to make sure I'm not missing something obvious in terms of issues I could face further down the line.


      My naming convention will show if a LUN is presented from tier 1 or tier 2, so that's not a problem.

       

      Do I need to care about LUN numbering at all?

       

      Thanks in advance
