I have a customer who is a SP and require multiple Vlans for there NAS requirements. i.e they use seperate VLAN's for each customer to access CIFS/NFS.
The configuration I had in mind was for each head in a HA pair to create an IFgroup which supported Cisco trunking dot1q?
I plan to configure IFGroups for SnapMirror and SnapVault using LACP to provide Dynamic fault tolerance and load balancing as they will be connected via a port channel using a single VLAN.
What configuration would I have to adopt to allow multiple VLANS to service NAS for their different customers? also is it posible to provide load balacing for trunked ports?
Solved! SEE THE SOLUTION

Check out this document
If you still have questions after reading through this let me know.
I would create an ifgrp for NFS and tag all the vlans
Here is an example of what the RC file would look like,
ifgrp create lacp NFS -b ip e1a e1b
vlan create NFS 11 106
ifconfig NFS-11 192.168.10.56 netmask 255.255.255.224 partner NFS-02-11 mtusize 1500
ifconfig NFS-106 192.168.5.48 netmask 255.255.255.0 partner NFS-02-106 mtusize 1500
ifconfig NFS-106 alias 192.168.5.50 netmask 255.255.255.0 partner NFS-02-106 mtusize 1500
route add default 192.168.5.1
options dns.domainname test.local
options dns.enable on
options nis.enable off
Also, how many Ethernet ports are we working with?

Hi Thanks for your quick response,
At present we have 2 ports per head for NAS but will plan for the expansion of this in the future. From what you have sent me this is perfect! Thanks for this, it expains what I had already envisaged.
