We recently purchased our first NetApp (two FAS3240 filers running 8.0.1 7-mode) so I've been making my way through the documentation and trying to set it up. I think I'm getting close to having a working environment but I'm still unclear on a few things. Here's a quick summary of what I've done and questions I have:
vfiler run san-vm-int route add 10.50.62.0/24 <gateway??> 0
From what I can tell the gateway parameter is required but we have no gateway on our storage switches. The NetApp and vSphere servers are all plugged into the same switches
And one final question... When I'm partnering interfaces between the two filers, do I partner the VIFs, the VLANs, or both?
I hope I provided enough information about our environment and what I'm having trouble with. Thanks for any help you're willing to provide!

IP's added to interfaces in ipspaces assigned to vfilers first have to exist in the vfiler. Default routes in vfilers are not mandatory, but you almost used the correct syntax (modulo gateway and hop count) if you wanted to. Local subnets are just a matter for arp. This would need to be added to your /etc/rc file. "vif's" on 8.x are called "interface groups" or ifgrp ... just to avoid confusion...
When you configure partner interfaces, just pair up the vlan interfaces. Remember, corresponding ipspaces with the correctly assigned vlans have to exist on both filers or things will go fubar when you failover.
