Migrating iSCSI to SFP+ from Base-t

Hi,

I'm looking at buying some switches for iscsi traffic.  I can get two 10Gb sfp+ switches at a good price.  I'm currently just on 1Gb base-t switches.

on the switches themselves is there any big configuration changes? can I just copy my switch config (the new and old are dell powerconnect) to the 10gb switches and expect it to work?

If you only change port speed, and have no changes on addressing or topology, they would typically not be any substantial config changes.

Now Dell has acquired several switch vendors and renamed them all, even though operating system was different, but I will assume that both your old and new switches has the same operating system.

I just added some 10G SFP+ in my Cisco environment and there isn't any difference in the configuration between 1G and 10G, or between copper and fiber interfaces. You should review whatever best practices documentation Dell provides. My understanding is that their switches can do some autoconfiguration when connected to at least EqualLogic gear, and your current configuration may not be optimal.

There isn't any difference in the configuration between 1G and 10G, the sfp+ switches I have buy on Fiberstore is really very good, you can have a try!
