    If I upgrade my Apple MDC's to Yosemite with Xsan 4, will my RedHat and Solaris clients running snfs 4.7.2 work without any issues?

    You can do it any time after creating a SAN or adding an MDC. It's not volume-specific. Note OS X 10.10.2 is required.

    [20150212 16:46:19] 0x7fff7a341310 (**FATAL**) Server could not find any Meta-Data devices!\

    You've got a problem in fibre channel or in your RAID. The MDC can't start an fsm process for the volume if it can't see all LUNs used for metadata or journal.

    Thank you very much for the info.

    At what step of the configuration you use this command?

    Before creating the volume?

    Thank you for your reply,

    I guess I should have given a little background so here it is.

    We have a 90TB SAN made by Active, all clients and the OD are running Mountain Lion due to recent update from Mountain on top of permission problems that existed before the upgrade. We use the SAN as storage for video FCP, drop folders for a transcoder etc. There is about 65TB of legacy files & directories whose permissions are screwed up. I wrote the scripts to remove current legacy permissions and implement new permissions across the board. I have made several versions of the scripts that are to be run against different subfolders off of the root folder to allow or deny various group permissions to specific subfolders.

    I'm sure the scripts will work fine my testing has shown no problems. The main question I have is would it be alright not to apply ACLs to files, not to use the attribute file_inherit and just let the folder ACLs handle permissions?

    The reason I ask is because all 65TB of legacy files have ACLs that cause an error 50 when you copy them across various root subfolders. My testing has shown that removing ACLs from files will solve all problems but I'm not sure if this is common practice.

    I hope this is a little clearer now.
    Thanks

    I hate to throw you too much at once but this issue may be of a higher priority to solve first.

    I have placed two screen shots below that appear very strange to me.

    XSAN Volume Root Folder Permissions

    Refering to the link above there are two users and no groups specified except "Everyone"?

    XSAN Volume Newly Created Folder off of Root Permissions

    Refering to the link above there are again two users (different ones the in the root) and no groups specified except "Everyone"? Shouldn't there be inheritence here? Are these all POSIX only permissions set somewhere in an admin GUI?

    I know this is a lot to give you at once but I have the feeling we have other issues that need to be resolved before running scripts or anything else. I have included links to a couple of screen shots that illustrate my concerns. Keep in mind I'm pretty good at writing scripts but I know nothing at all about administration, that being said something still look very wrong to me.

    XSAN Volume Root Folder Permissions
    Shows the permissions of the root folder. Question: shouldn't this only specify groups, I see two user and Everyone which doesn't look right to me.

    XSAN Volume Newly Created Folder off of Root Permissions
    Shows the permissions of a folder I just created and it's permissions are even more bizzar there is a completely different set. Shouldn't there be some inheritance here? And again the only group listed is Everyone.

    While we are waiting for our consultant Danny to get some free time I wanted to fill you in on the current state of permissions on our SAN and the solution scripts I have written but not yet run. If you could read the attachments and voice your opinion and recommendations before the scripts are run I would appreciate it very much.

    Thanks
