Endpoint for IsiIP?

I'm a bit confused by the documetation when it comes to the endpoint adress to point the CSI driver towards.

The logical part for me would have been to point it towards the SmartIP, but that seems to get permission denied whatever I do.

If i point it towards the DNS name we are usually using for NFS mounts, it seems to do a round robin and triggers errors where it almost looks like the powerscale cluster thinks I'm trying to do some kind of XSS attack.

The only way I have gotten it to work is to point the driver directly to one of the nodes. But this cannot be the proper way to set it up, right? 

It seems to be a little bit non-redundant for a setup.

Anyone got any insights on how to configure the driver for proper redundancy?

Hi, which smartIP do you mean?

Basically there are 2 types of IPs or endpoints we need to set (assuming you are running CSI 1.6):

1. The isiIP in the secret file. This is for OneFS RESTful API endpoint. It has to be the IP or FQDN of your System Zone. It's used by CSI to talk to OneFS to create NFS export, snapshot, etc. 

2. The AzServiceIP in storage class. This is for NFS mount and data transfer. It can be IP or FQDN of any SC zone, doesn't have to be system zone.

For any type of endpoint, FQDN can be used.
