After spending a few days with Yosemite, I am happy to say that both OS X Server and Xsan still exist and work as expected.

Any new numbers after "xsan"?

I'm running Yosemite as well and we're having some issues with XSAN. How can I find out what version of XSAN Yosemite is running on my Macbook Pro?

Thanks in advance!

Double click the computer in xsan admin. Are your controllers Yosemite?

Well, I'm on a client machine, so I don't have access to the xsan admin. My IT guy is claiming that Yosemite has XSAN version 4 and that it's different than the XSAN version 3 that comes with Mavericks...is this true?

That is probably why you are having issues. If the controllers of the Xsan you are part of have an OS older then yours, then there is an incompatibility since the changes from Xsan versions are backwards compatible but not necessarily the opposite. From an older thread, you can find a supported Xsan/OS chart from this link.

To summarize, you should always have the latest OS on the Metadata Controller of the Xsan and the same/older for connected clients.

Your controllers need to be a newer or current to your clients. Also, you should not be running beta sofrware on a production storage network. No downgrade your system and be patient for a stable release of yosemite. If you have to use yosemite for a feature or bug fix, connect over re-share.
