comment Fibre channel long distance woes
I am curious about your CWDM units. CWDM is an evil beast; if you have 40KM lasers on a 15KM link, and there's a reflection, you may find that the SFPs are seeing light from themselves. Is it possible to add attenuators to try and bring the light levels down somewhat?

Update: Mark Shuttleworth just invested $1M in Inktank - inktank.com - who support Ceph as their core business. So if you've been management-blocked from using Ceph for supportability reasons - here's your opportunity.

comment Unable to connect via NetBIOS Name
Out of curiousity, what is the netmask on each machine? /24 (i.e. 255.255.255.0)? Or something different? NetBIOS name query requests use broadcasts, so if your netmask is wrong, broadcasts could be directed to an incorrect address, which means NetBIOS name resolution will fail.
