The question comes up every so often about which NAS appliances Messaging Server currently supports. The answer is basically this:
Messaging Server supports such appliances but only on very specific configurations and not for just any NAS appliance. Messaging Server definitely supports NetApp appliances and the Sun StorageTek 5310 NAS. The 5320 should also work, though we haven't certified it on Messaging Server yet. (I should be working on a technical note about the 5320 shortly.) For the 5310, there is an existing technical note.
Also, one should note that Messaging Server supports NFS only for a single host accessing a set of backend store data (that is, not for concurrent access to the same backend store data by more than one host).
