Equallogic/FX2 Connection

I'm trying to connect an FX2 to our existing EQ Group via vSphere 6. 

FX2 w/Dell PowerEdge FN 410S IOA.

Do I use A1 for network and A2 for iSCSI or is it all segregated by vlans?

Any Help?

TIA Troy

Hello Troy,

Sorry but connecting via an FX2 is not supported with PS Series storage.  It's not a proper switch.  You need to have a switch suitable for iSCSI SAN use.

Do we have to buy a PCIe NIC card for each server if we want to connect to the equallogic network then?

Hi,

I'm not an expert with chassis configurations, but that's one option.  There are also MXL switches that can be installed in the chassis to provide the needed connectivity.
