    I'm considering migrating Access front-ends linked to SQL server and access
    front-ends linked to Access back-ends from a file server to a SAN,
    specifically EMC Celerra. Is this recommended?

    Thanks

    The above should not be a problem, but I was not aware that you could run
    sql server on those san products? If you can, and those products actually
    run windows 2000/2003, then I see no problem. Regardless, if sql server runs
    ok on those boxes..then the above will not have any problems.

    Now, that is a different ball game, and a more difficult problem. I have no
    idea how that network storage product works. However, if they run windows
    2000, or 2003, then they should work ok....

    A ms-access file share is somewhat a special case, since file locking, and
    multi-user features of the windows network system is used, so, you need a
    compatible windows file system in that case.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
