Im a trying to understand how HP routes its management traffic and if it actually does route it or not. Does everything go over the iSCSI network?
We have a few P4500 G2 nodes and each has 2 x 10gb NICs bonded and sitting on our iSCSI lan.
We are already pulling information off the SANs using SNMP into Orion using each storage nodes IP address (on the iSCSI LAN), is this not bad practice? Is there any documentation to show that this is bad practice or is it fine for this to happen? To get it working over the managment iLO IPs ill need to raise a few requests to re-route and add to our VPN etc.
Also, for email alerts, are these sent over the iSCSI LAN? We have had to add all our SAN node IPs into the email realys ... does this mean that all alerts (granted they should be minimal) are being sent over the iscsi LAN too?
Any insight here would be great. Explian it to me like im 5 would be even better.
