EqualLogic SAN Replication
Posted on 2011-05-09
We have a Production Server site and a DR server site (Physically 2 different locations). At each site I have an Equalogic PS6000 SAN Groups (2 SANs at each site). The groups are connected via ISCSi VLANs at each site (2 ISCSI VLANs). Both sites are linked as part of our WAN (managed by a provider), but the VLAN's obviously do not connect to the WAN. I want to perform 2 way replication across the networks between the 2 SANs Our Production site is running fine and the DR site is ready to begin replication.
I have only just realised now that I have missed a major part of the project. And not quite sure of the best way to configure the link between the 2 ISCSi VLANs.
What's the best way to connect the iSCSI traffic between the 2 VLANs?
If you could talk me through what I need to do to accomplish my outcome. The routers at both sites are Cisco (but managed by a 3rd Party). The ISCSi switches are Dell PowerConnect 6224 and the LAN switches are as follows:
Production Site - Dell Powerconnect 6248
DR Site - Linksys SRW2048
