Hi all,

I want to the configuration dividing the replication network and data network.

example)

eth2:192.168.10.xx/24(Data traffic)

eth3:192.168.20.xx/24(Replication traffic)

Which configuration is recommended ??

     1.Creating a new shared folder server only replication purpose.
     2.Adding a different interface to the shared folder server.

Please let me know if you have more detailed Document about the replication network of VNXe.

Best regards.

Hey,

I wrote wrong before. I want to say example A (Dividing the storage server) should be better.

You are right. Absolutely, example A is good in term of fault tolerance. So, if want to perform replication, we can create a special storage server for the replication.

Thank you for your reply.
emc269693 is very helpful information.

Which configuration is EMC's Recommendation ?
Dividing the storage server(Example A) or Having multiple Address for single storage server(Example B).

Example A
=======================================================================
System1                                              System2

Shared Folder on SPA                                Shared Folder on SP A
IP1: 192.168.0.xx (replication interface)           IP1: 192.168.0.xx (replication interface)
Shared Folder on SP A                               Shared Folder on SP A
IP1: 192.168.1.xx (Share folder access)              IP1: 192.168.1.xx(Share folder access)
=======================================================================

Example B
=======================================================================
System1                                              System2

Shared Folder on SPA                                Shared Folder on SPA
IP1: 192.168.0.xx (replication interface)           IP1: 192.168.0.xx (replication interface)
IP2: 192.168.1.xx (Share folder access)           IP2: 192.168.1.xx (Share folder access)
=======================================================================

Will it no problem either configuration ?

Best regards.

Thank you for reply.

There is one more question at the end.
Please tell me the possible reasons Example B is better.
Are there any materials described is this part somewhere?

By using separate servers for data communication and replication,
I was thinking Example A is good in terms of fault tolerance and load balancing.

Thanks!!
