comment Hidden Features of Solaris/OpenSolaris
As someone who recently switched to OpenSolaris, I'm loving SMF. I also happen to administer a bunch of OS X servers, and yes launchd supports retrying a service start if it fails, if that's what you mean.

@Timk: It says pretty clearly in Sun's spec sheet that's it 512 GB.

comment Xen DomU root filesystems becoming read-only on iSCSI virtual IP failover
Updated the original description with answers to your questions. I suppose I could look in to multipathing instead, but the system is more geared for virtual IP failover in its current form. I'm not sure how the block level replication would come in to play with multipathing, especially since one of the SAN units needs to be designated a master. Thanks for pointing me to the part about the filesystem. I think that pretty much explains it. I suppose I could try switching it to the 'continue' mode, or maybe look at changing the filesystem to something more resilient like XFS.
