Delayed Write

Hello all,

I am having what would seem to be a unique issue. I have a SAN attached Server getting delayed write errors- I have exhausted just about all options I can think of and even vendors are scratching their heads. We have updated HBA's we have updated path software, we have looked at the SAN the servers, the switches everything we can think of. Is there anything someone can suggest that I look at?


RE: Delayed Write

A few of questions first to get an idea of the layout...

1) Which vendor does the SAN environment consist of (i.e. EMC, HP, etc)?
2) What type of servers are hooked to it (i.e. Linux, Windows, combination of both)?
3) Is there SAN directors in place?
4) Describe the infrastructure -- iSCSI, Fiber Channel, etc.

RE: Delayed Write

What manufacturer of servers? Have you tested the hard drives/updated firmware on them (considering they're SCSI/SATA/SAS)?
