Apple Xsan 2.1 updates

Apple today released updates to Xsan, its enterprise-class storage area network solution. Xsan 2.1, Xsan 2.1 Admin and Xsan 2.1 Uninstaller updates have been posted to both Apple Downloads and Software Update. Patch notes reveal that this relatively minor release focuses on delivering an overall improvement in speed and filesystem reliability, along with a multitude of small bug fixes. It is recommended for all users running Xsan on Mac OS X 10.5 or Mac OS X Server 10.5 or later.

Specific changes include improved ACL verification and correction, better logging during the, RPL stage of the upgrade process, and improved performance and reliability during controller failover scenarios.

Changes unique to the Xsan Admin 2.1 update introduce easier methods of switching computers' roles within the SAN; the ability to remove clients from a SAN in situations in which the controller may be offline; the correction of an issue which could cause users and groups to not be shown when the primary controller is offline; better visual indications for truncated LUN size; improved Assistant warnings and size indicators when creating or expanding a volume, and upgraded SAN health indicators.

Full patch notes can be found here in the Apple Knowledge Base.
