Great idea and thanks for mentioning this. I admit I'm more of a Windows guy than a Linux guy. Do you have suggested mount options for mounting NetApp exports onto Linux? For my basic filer administrative work, I use these options to my Linux box:
mount -o rw,bg,vers=3,tcp,timeo=600,rsize=32768,wsize=32768,hard,intr

I took those options from pg. 22 of this TR:
I noticed the default mount in the Ubuntu release I'm using is soft which I didn't want to do.

Thanks Leif,

Those mount options should work OK. I would definitely recommend mounting "hard" as a general best practice, as you mentioned.

Good luck and feel free to reply with your results!

Hi, we are aligning all our VMs with Netapp's mbralign tool.

We fix the linux grub with a Rescue "super grub" CD - but this does not work on the Solaris VMs

Error is: "Error 6 Mismatched or corrupt version of stage1/stage2"

I tried the manual steps (specifying the a "slice" someone mentioned in a solaris forum):

grub> root (hd0,0,a)
grub> setup (hd0)

but got the same error
Has anyone successfully aligned a Solaris VM??
