VNX port binding

Hi there ,,,

My customer wants to connect with iSCSI connection /Same segment /1024 hosts /4x SP ports .

I have checked Documents ...

TechBookiSCSI-SAN-Topologies

HostConnectivityGuide

But would not find any issue or any other idea my customer to try ...Is there any suggestion for below config ?

This would  be NOT Recommended but at least supported .... ? Also Is there any way they can do with other way ?

Also what about 2 ports in SP ? possible ?

This is the config ....

ESX1(Up to 256)
 SCSI Port Binding (SPA0:192.168.0.1/24 SPB0:192.168.0.2/24)

ESX2(Up to 256)
 SCSI Port Binding (SPA1:192.168.0.3/24 SPB1:192.168.0.4/24)

ESX3(Up to 256)
 SCSI Port Binding (SPA2:192.168.0.5/24 SPB2:192.168.0.6/24)

ESX4(Up to 256)
 SCSI Port Binding (SPA3:192.168.0.7/24 SPB3:192.168.0.8/24)

Re: VNX port binding

Why can't they have a second /24 subnet for secondary iSCSI ?  Its not a huge undertaking to add a /24.

Hi ,

thanks for the suggestion ierikson... you are coming from redundancy and workload  points of view  ...right ?

Re: VNX port binding

my point of view is that its easier to follow best practice then do workarounds because the customer/client is not capable of giving you another subnet to work with.
