Sun Storage 7000 2009.Q2.2.1 Release

A new micro update to the 2009.Q2 software has been posted. This release contains only two small fixes, one to address spurious NTP failures and one to address a performance regression introduced in the 2009.Q2.2.0 release. Users with a heavy write workload running 2009.Q2.2.1 should upgrade at their earliest convenience.

Complete release notes can be found here.

Comments:

Just installed this and it seems to work fine. I'm really pleased with the package updating mechanism. It's very easy. I just wish there was a "hey, I'm done patching, click 'OK' to reboot" dialog, rather than just rebooting (yes, I know it warns you, but it warns you several minutes before it actually goes bang).

On another note, I just ran into something in our testing of the 7410 (nice box!) that I consider a bug. When you enable iSNS, you disable sendtargets. To me, that's a bug. I should be able to use both. Most of the clients I want to test support iSNS, but ESX 3.5 doesn't. It can only do sendtargets. So it really confused me to see no targets until I disabled iSNS! Any chance that can get fixed?

Keep up the great work. I think we may be buying a 7210 off the educational Sun Matching Grant, as it's barely more expensive than just the WARRANTY EXTENSION on our Dell/EMC CX3-40!
