Dell PowerConnect 5424 and VMWare iSCSI setup
Posted on 2010-09-01
Ok. I'm trying to find information on what is the best way to add this Dell PowerConnect 5424 into my setup. I think I have an idea but maybe someone can give something better. Here's my situation:
On my second subnet, I already established an iSCSI environment where all my VMware iSCSI reside. I have multiple ESX host with 2 iSCSI SAN and all link through a single Dell PowerConnect 5424. the switch already setup as a JumboFrame and all host are setup to use 2 NICs for teaming and Round Robin. But since I am running out of available port, I decided to purchased another Dell PowerConnect 5424.
One option is to setup an HA configuration where I can setup the new switch as another subnet but this will break all of my NIC teaming and round robin settings.
So, I am thinking just add this new Dell PowerConnect 5424 as a stack to the other 5424. But cannot find any information on how to set up the stack to the Dell PowerConnect 5424.
Does someone has information for linking the 2 PowerConnect 5424? Please advise.
