Content Server on SAN

Hi Gurus-

We currently have three SAP content servers that are using file system storage (or said another way - don't have Max DB running on these servers) that we need to upgrade. (They have been running for about 5 years now.)

So, the question that is being asked is if we can use a smaller app server (for the content server software) and put the files on a SAN. In another post someone referenced about using a SAN - but it also seemed to be related to Max DB and the OSS note 576063 isn't available to me (message said it is being reworked or is for internal use only.)

If a SAN can be used, is it that we just map the SAN as a network drive? Then in the config of the content server admin settings (ContRepRoot) we indicate that "drive" (and a folder on it) as the location files should be stored?

Does the answer about using a SAN change if the content server is in one location (local IT server room) but the SAN is remote (data center)?

Thanks for your assistance, in advance!

    Hi Jennifer,

    As you are using Filesystem as a content repository there is no harm in moving to another application server.
