    question regarding Apples Xsan.

    At this moment we have a few Mac Pros (Cheese Grinder) that are used as Servers.

    One has a Riad over a ATTO Fiber Card attached. It is not setup as Xsan just standard RAID drive.

    We just received few Mac Mini (Intel with 10GB Network) and Sonnets Rack mounts to replace the Mac Pros.

    Would it be possible to setup the one which the RAID will be attached to, as Xsan and have the clients connect to it over Ethernet using ISCSI?

    Unfortunately we do not have a Fiber Switch and from the loose we will not be purchasing one. But a 10GB Ethernet Switch is on its way.
