INTER VSAN ROUTING

Jump to solution
I have two different storages running on a two different VSAN. However, I need to provide the devices from both the storages to the same ESX server. I got to know through INTER VSAN ROUTING it can be possible. Please suggest how do we implment and configure IVR in the running CISCO enviornment.

Re: INTER VSAN ROUTING

Jump to solution

Dear Team,

I am going to configure the IVR. My Environment is mentioned below. So please let me know how to create the IVR between primary and DR site by using below inputs.

Production  Site  Fabric 1

  • MDS 9710  and MDS 9222i ( FC ISL is created between two switch)
  • Only two VSAN is created per switch  VSAN 100 and VSAN 102
  • VSAN 100 is used for production zoneset
  • VSAN 102 is used for FCIP interface
  • FCIP communication is working fine between two sites

Production Site Fabric 2

  • MDS 9710  and MDS 9222i ( FC ISL is created between two switch)
  • Only two VSAN is created per switch  VSAN 200 and 202
  • VSN 200 is used for production zoneset
  • VSAN 202 is used for FCIP interface
  • FCIP communication is working fine between two sites

DR site Fabric 1

  • MDS 9710  and MDS 9222i ( FC ISL is created between two switch)
  • Only two VSAN is created per switch  VSAN 101 and VSAN 102
  • VSAN 101 is used for production zoneset
  • VSAN 102 is used for FCIP interface
  • FCIP communication is working fine between two sites

DR Site FABRIC 2

  • MDS 9710  and MDS 9222i ( FC ISL is created between two switch)
  • Only two VSAN is created per switch  VSAN 100 and VSAN 102
  • VSAN 201 is used for production zoneset
  • VSAN 202 is used for FCIP interface
  • FCIP communication is working fine between two sites


All servers and hosts are connected to MDS 9710 series switch in both sites. MDS 9222i switch is used to create only for FCIP and IVR. So please let me know where i have to  enable the IVR and what will be the IVR VSAN topology.

I wanted to configure IVR without NAT and IVR without auto config.
