Sun Storage 7000 2009.Q2 Release

The first major Sun Storage 7000 series software update, known as "2009.Q2", is now available at the Sun Download Center.

You can find the complete release notes here. A summary of the major new features is below:

Data protocols

  • NFSv2
  • HTTPS/WebDAV
  • FTPS
  • SFTP

Data services

  • FTP analytics
  • Microsoft shadow copy for shared folders
  • CIFS share-level ACLs
  • AD cross-forest authentication

Software features

  • Workflow automation
  • SMTP relay configuration
  • Authenticated NTP
Comments:

This is an impressive list of enhancements and fixes for a maintenance update! Keep up the good work. My team is downloading this now. I am optimistic that the AD cross-forest authentication will resolve a minor concern that we have in the older system software.

I have got a small issue with this new update. I tried to install it in the VMware image, which did work find. Afterwards have I lost my ssh connection from a Java program to the storage image. It will simply not connect. Anyone else got this issue? Or do anyone have a solution to this?

I can connect using my ssh client in the terminal, but not using the ssh library in my java program.

Regards

David

I have sort of solved my problem. The problem seems to be the java library that I am using. :-(

Here is the scenario:

cut3sun1 is the NFS client and it is mounting two shares CUT3DWH and ENOCC. I would like to make a local (non-root) user on cut3sun1 write to these shares.

root@cut3sun1.hns.com$ ls -lart
total 9
drwx------ 2 nobody other 2 Apr 6 10:58 CUT3DWH
dr-xr-xr-x 2 root root 2 Apr 30 11:13 ..
dr-xr-xr-x 1 root root 1 Apr 30 11:13 ENOCC
dr-xr-xr-x 3 root root 3 Apr 30 11:13 .
root@cut3sun1.hns.com$ pwd
/net/10.36.195.1/export

What do I need to do on the 7110 to allow that?

Regards.
Mark

@Mark Moxley You have to set the root owner of the shares on the storage box. The UserID must match the one of the client.

Is there any way we can do this the other way around? The UIDs are fixed at the client end. Oracle UID in our environment is 101. Can we for the UID on the 7110 for Oracle to be 101? What about group access? Ie. dba?

Mark -

This is not really an appropriate forum for support - you should contact Sun Support for more direct help. But keep in mind that you can always use arbitrary numeric UIDs, even if these UIDs do not have semantic meaning in the context of the appliance itself.
