VNX (Clariion) iSCSI

I am searching for a good document or white paper that describes the networking capabilities and configurtion options for iSCSI on the CLARiiON's SP's. Custome is concerned about the iSCSI network complexitiy when attaching a relatively large number of servers and server nics to, say, a VNX 7500 with many iSCSI connections.

Thanks,

Eric

Re: VNX (Clariion) iSCSI

As a followup, they run EQL today, and it's possible for a server to point to a single iSCSI IP address where a LUN lives, and the EQL automatically redirects, as part of the iSCSI protocol, to the actual IP address where the LUN actually is accessible from.

Seems like this simplifies iSCSI configuration and network management.

Thanks,

Eric

On PowerLink try KnowlledgeBase article emc245445 - this is for the current iSCSI on the CLARiiON - a lot of the general rules will still apply to the VNX - the iSCSI is pretty similar to the CX4.
