Re: EqualLogic PS 6510 setup

Hello, 

 That sounds great!  I am glad that I was able to assist you. 

  Are you going to have a dedicated 10GbE x2 ports just for iSCSI, or try to route up to another switch and back down?   The later tends not work well long term.  The added latency can spike depending on how busy the other switches are.  So if at all possible a dedicated link between the switches, then you can uplink other ports anywhere you like. 

 Please upgrade the switches to current firmware and here is the best practice configuration guide for the 8100 series.

 You need to disable Data Center Bridging (DCB) otherwise standard flowcontrol won't work.  DCB is enabled on the switch by default. 

 Regards,

Don
