NetApp FAS 3020 iSCSI/CIFS LAN setup
Posted on 2008-10-25
Customer has a FAS 3020 which has 4 ethernet host ports but only one is connected and is running both iSCSI for block level storage and CIFS for the users' home directories on a single gigabit Ethernet cable.
I would like to have 2 ports running MPIO or driver-based multi-pathing for the iSCSI side and have the other 2 ports running 802.3ad Link Aggregation Control Protocol for the LAN traffic. (I can do without LACP and force the switch to use Cisco fast etherchannel if needed).
Anyone got instructions on how to set that up? I hate to have SAN and LAN on trhe same interface if I can avoid it.
I know how to configure the servers for MPIO and the switches for LACP but I don't know NetApp.
