I haven't use any of the Dell Powervault MD's before. I am looking at going after a MD3200i to be storage in a vmware cluster, this one looks like the one i'm going after http://www.ebay.com/itm/Dell-PowerVault-MD3200i-iSCSI-SAN-12-x-2TB-/142398485669?hash=item21279c74a5...
So would the iSCSI in connections on the example above be the connectivity for network traffic with the management port be used for management of the MD3200i?
Yes you are correct. If you are going to use out-of-Band management then your iSCSI connections would be used for data & the management port would be used to manage your MD3200i. Now if you wanted you can use in-band management & with that you manage your MD3200i using the iSCSI connections. Here is a link to our Administrator Guide and if you look on page 35 it explains more about the differences between In-band & Out-of-Band management. http://downloads.dell.com/Manuals/common/md32xx_md36xx_administrator%20guide_en%20us.pdf
