Unity network configuration

Hi All,

Does Unity 300 2 onboard x 10GB RJ45 ports (labeled 2 and 3) support connectivity for both iSCSI and file (CIFS, NFS)?

Appreciate your input.

Re: Unity network configuration

Hi,



iSCSI CNA ports are front-end, onboard ports, supporting switched or direct attachment.Each port can operate at 10 Gbps, support VLAN tagging, and can have 32 virtual ports per physical port. Multiple iSCSI sessions per initiator connection is available at 10 Gbps only. Optical SFP or Twin-Ax copper are supported. Ports will also be available for File/Network features.

From Unity Hardware Fundamentals student guide April 2016

Re: Unity network configuration

yes

if you want to use them for both then keep in mind NOT to configure LACP

since ISCSI doesnt support LACP you wont be able to configure ISCSI on a port where trunking is configured

Re: Unity network configuration

Thank you.

Can I configure LACP across 2 onboard x 10GB RJ45 ports (labeled 2 and 3), or across two CNA ports if they are used for File traffic? Can I configure LACP across 2 onboard x 10GB RJ45 ports and 2 x onboard CNA ports if they are used for File traffic?

In other words will it allow me to mix different network ports from different IO modules in LACP link, for example mix the onboard ports with ad on IO module ports in LACP?

Can I also do FSN across any of the ports, like it was done on VNX?

Re: Unity network configuration

not different ones

up to 4 ports of the same type and on the same I/O module I think

if you find out how to do FSN on Unity then let me know 🙂
