Learn which Xsan features aren’t supported on these clients, and under which configurations.

When you access a storage area network (SAN) volume that runs on Quantum StorNext metadata controllers (MDCs), these Xsan features aren’t supported:

  • Versions
  • File system quotas, if the StorNext MDC is Windows-based
  • Case-insensitive volumes, if the MDC runs StorNext 5.3 or earlier
  • Native extended attributes, if the MDC runs StorNext 4.2 or earlier
  • Project-oriented quotas, if the MDC runs StorNext 4.2 or earlier and the client runs Xsan 2.2.2 or earlier

File system ACLs are supported only in these configurations:

  • The StorNext MDC runs on Linux and has only Xsan clients.
  • The StorNext MDC runs on Linux and has StorNext Windows and Xsan clients.
  • The StorNext MDC runs on Windows and has StorNext Windows and Xsan clients.
  • The StorNext MDC runs on Linux and has Xsan clients, StorNext Windows clients, and Linux StorNext clients, where the Linux clients are running StorNext 5.4 or later.
