Actually the SANFS Client was supported under the Windows platform. I know of at least one site still running that client. The application is being migrated to Linux/GPFS though :-)

Fets, <br /> You are correct. IBM was able to develop clients for Windows and Solaris later, but we were hoping they would be part of the OS, rather than something IBM shipped separately. The new strategy, with SONAS focused on industry standard CIFS and NFS clients, has turned out to be a better approach. <br /> -- Tony (az990tony)

well i hope everything works out on this movement smoothly.. migrating something from an OS to another will take time I'am sure.. <div>&nbsp;</div> <div>&nbsp;</div> <a href="" rel="nofollow">Where To Buy Luxury Watches<br /> </a>
