gatekeepers visible in storage manager?

gatekeepers visible in storage manager?

(OP)
Hello,

It has been a while since I've had to do any EMC-related tasks, so my memory is a bit foggy.

Is it "normal" for the gatekeepers to be visible in a Windows host's storage manager?  I recently had a database admin asking me this, he was poking around server manager on a 2008 server and could see the gatekeepers, along with the LUNs masked to that particular host.

RE: gatekeepers visible in storage manager?

Under Storage > Disk Management I see all the disks which are presented to the server.  Not really sure where he's looking.  Got a screenshot?

Same place you mention... I guess if they're presented to the box they'll appear, makes sense - but didn't expect them to be presented to the server.

My understanding of EMC theory has atrophied over the years from lack of use!    

RE: gatekeepers visible in storage manager?

Yep, the disks show up there. Windows needs to be able to partition and format them.
