Configuration > Name Servers

The Name Servers page allows you to manage machines that are acting as File System name servers. You may specify either a hostname or an IP addresses for a machine, but an IP address is preferable because it avoids problems associated with the lookup system, for example, DNS or NIS.

Note: Name servers are also referred to as coordinators. The terms may be used interchangeably throughout this documentation.

Note: On Linux systems, you should turn off the Network Manager service, because it can interfere with the StorNext nameserver and Linux network devices.

Note: If you are connecting Xsan Clients to StorNext MDCs, verify you are meeting the requirements listed in the Requirements section of the Connect an Xsan Client to a StorNext MDC topic.
