switch switches between SAN and ESX 4 host server
Posted on 2010-09-07
I am hoping this is as easy as I imagine. I have (2) switches. One connects my (2) ESX 4 hosts to my EMC AX4-5i, the other is in the rack connected to nothing. Can I give the unconnected switch the same IP as the connected one, unplug all cables from the connected one and plug them into the unconnected one, and then be connected to the SAN with no further configuration on either the SAN or the ESX 4 hosts? I have enabled jumbo frames on the unconnected switch to match the connected one - that is the only thing I can think of that would need to be configured as I did nothing else to the connected switch (no VLAN, no QOS, etc.).
Please feel free to ask for clarification.
Thanks a lot.
