Xsan4 with StorNext Windows Client Configuration Help!

I wish there was training available or at least more online documentation than what I have found for Xsan4, but there was not and so I wanted to share with you all my story and knowledge. I only had experience with Xsan2 and Xsan4 is completely different. They simplified configuration and do not provide a granular configuration in the GUI, as they did in Xsan2.

It had taken me over 3 weeks to troubleshoot and resolve my issue. Only because I have found that some of the new hardware that we had purchased were at fault. We always assume that new hardware is in good working order straight out of the box.

My advice to you ... always keep in mind that EVERY component that you have in your implementation can be FAULTY/BAD! Never overlook any possibility!!

Because I have ran into issues immediately during my initial setup, I immediately blamed Xsan version 4, but guess what!? ... I'm now using it and it's doing everything I need it to do!!
