What is the max number of drive interfaces?
I am trying to find out what the max number of drives the linux kernel can support. We are planning on implementing a Linux environment with SAN storage. The SAN environment will have 8 paths to each hard drive. So Linux will see 8 hard drives, but they are are mapped to the same location on the SAN. I am wondering if we are going to run into problems with hitting a max number of drives limitation. If that were the case, it may limit us to how many drives we can add to the server if 8 paths are used. Does anyone know where this kind of information is documented?
