Looking at deploying the above.  

What i'm struggling to understand is how to configure the SAN and servers. We may upgrade and use existing DL360 G5's but may look at new 380 g7's...  difference (big?) being more NICS in the 380's.
we are on a 172.19.0.0/16 address range.  
How & what settings are required for the SAN?
It will have 2x controllers (8 iscsi ports) with 1x management port per controller.  
Can someone explain the basics of the iscsi ports and addressing?  Also are the Ethernet management ports equivalent to say an ILO port for a server????

Thanks
