comment MD3000i SAN - live firmware upgrade
G Koe, the logs show that slot 14 in the SAN has 3 drives crammed into it, which is not the case, nor is it possible. i went over the support bundle with the dell tech and he showed me where it is showing that. he's suggesting that since need to do a firmware upgrade, that it may kick that loose and fix the issue. if it does not... then power cycle - and THAT i am not currently prepared for.

comment MD3000i SAN - live firmware upgrade
thank you for the feedback. i'm using multipathd on linux hosts to handle the pathing failovers, but that doesn't mean i'm immune to this scenario!

comment Storing a million images in the filesystem
oh i definitely advocate that idea (used similar in the past). if you do groupings of letters per directory branch, just be aware of density distribution and conditions for how many 'dangling' characters to use for the actual filename - and how to handle odd versus even length names.

how do you intend to know how to locate a particular file?
