comment How can I distinguish between SAN zoning and LUN assignment issues on RHEL6?
Also, you really don't want to have the host emulation for your storage set to HP-UX for Linux. This is set on the hostgroup level on HP's HDS storage, so I recommend that instead of adding the Linux WWNs to the existing hostgroup, you create a new one (on different ports) and set the host emulation to linux.

I'm not the right guy to answer this because I don't know enough about how to manipulate storage with Linux, but can tell you that if you can see the storage port but don't see the right LUNs, that's a masking issue. If you can't see the port at all, that's a zoning issue.

As far as I know, the installed version should still be available from the boot menu.

comment Exchange 2016 “Microsoft.Office.CsmSdk” dependencie
Never use a server like a desktop. It should have nothing installed that's not directly related to the server's function. When you format and reinstall, leave off notepad++, chrome, and everything else that's not exchange or something directly needed for it. That stuff belongs on your workstation.

I had this- my SAP guys didn't pass the word around when we put the DB on SSD and fell back on a change thinking they were missing something.

comment NETAPP - Enable on-box DNS load balancing in an Active Directory environment
I am not an expert with this- I don't have it at my shop, but the way I remember it working, I think you're supposed to have a separate DNS entry for each individual LIF, and you can either use one of those or create one that's not a potential delegate just for joining the domain.

comment Cannot connect to sql server by IP Address but using the hostname works
Any time I see something that acts differently with a name and an IP address, I assume authentication/kerberos issues. I don't know enough about sql to help though.
