SnapMirror over iSCSI VIFs?

Is it possible to force SnapMirror replication to occur over the iSCSI interfaces between two filers instead of the LAN interfaces?  Is this supported or recommended?

Re: SnapMirror over iSCSI VIFs?

Supported...but usually we would use different interfaces.  You can use the snapmirror preferred interface setting or in the snapmirror.conf file specify the interface host by host name.  A lot of the iSCSI setup we see are two separate non-routeable storage networks dedicated to iSCSI traffic and no other traffic on them... but if limited interfaces I could see using it, but not ideal.
