Netapp 2220 SAN - Network Issues

I have a Netapp SAN that I am trying to get running on our network.  I'm not sure where I am going wrong.  Every time I try to ping our gateway, i get nothing.

I've setup e0a like so:  ifconfig e0a 10.8.1.21 netmask 255.255.255.0

The interface it's connected to is setup on VLAN8, which is the correct subnet.  When I ping the gateway, I get nothing.  I have tried a rebooot, removed network config on NetApp, made the default vlan 8 on the Cisco switch, added a route on the NetApp SAN with: route add default 10.8.1.1 1 and still nothing.

Ideas what I am missing?

is the interface you're connected to setup as a trunk port or an access port? on the switch?

easy way to check.  Configure crossover cable to the e0a interface and see if you can ping it, if you can that it's a switch configuration.

To verify interface config type "ifconfig -a" and verify that e0a is configured with the correct information.

When you recieved the Netapp you should have a usb stick, it has a wizard driven install on there that finds the Netapp by MAC address, perhaps worth a shot.

i have dual Nexus 5548's and you have to configure it on both sides.  i would swear that i did that already, but looked this morning and noticed it wasn't there.  changed it to access on both sides and it's working now.  i guess i just needed a good nights sleep!

you may want to configure the 10GB connections as a lacp vif and vlan trunking so that you can run multiple vlans on it.  Another option is to leave your management and perhaps CIFS on the 1GB nics and access ports

so you'll be doing snapmirror. If wan link becomes an issue snapmirror compression is an option

nothing is ever easy...

setting up SnapMirror and getting error 13102.  says it can't connect to filer.  I've tried pinging from filer to filer and it works fine, so they see each other.

doh, i was pinging by IP, not hostname, which is what snapmirror was using.  added entries to \etc\hosts on both filers and that fixed it.
