Question regarding this unit. I wasn't around for the original setup of this unit and need some input
We currently have ISCSI connection for a few servers to this unit. The SP ports A and B is isolated from everything else and the management ports are on a production network. My questions is

How can i change the management ip? I have two ips for each SP that i can't figure out how to change?

Does this unit have a cluster ip that i need to connect to in order to provide some redundancy? Instead of attaching to either A or B i want to attach my ISCSI to a shared ip so that if a controller goes out i am good.

If i can do this how can i change the IP?

The AX100i has two storage processors, and each has it's own IP address. The two SPs are aware of each other and you can use either address to manage the system. The IP addresses of the iSCSI ports should be on different subnets so that multi-pathing software (PowerPath) will work correctly. The redundancy comes from the storage being made available from both storage processors, and PowerPath manages that. You don't use a shared IP address in storage for presentation of LUNs. Also - best practices call  for storage and management being on seperate subnets, so it sounds like your AX100i has been configured correctly.
Thanks! Glad I could help.
