Vlan Tagging

Hey Everyone,

In reference to my previous post I have been told Vlan Tagging will help with (http://communities.netapp.com/message/11131#11131)

Does anyone have experience or advice on this with Multistore (vfilers)?

Thank You

Anthony

Re: Vlan Tagging

I can't see why it wouldn't work with MultiStore.  You assign IPs to vfilers, not interfaces per se as interfaces can have multiple IPs.  So I would set up the vlan interfaces first, then assign the IPs to the vfilers.

Re: Vlan Tagging

Do you have any specific examples?

Here is my Prod rc (man do I hate networking...probably cause I don't understand it)

hostname anthonyfiler1

ifconfig e9a flowcontrol full
ifconfig e9b flowcontrol full

vif create multi trunk2 e9a e9b
vif create single anthonyfiler1 trunk1 trunk2
ifconfig anthonyfiler1 .15.103 netmask 255.255.254.0 partner anthonyfiler2

Re: Vlan Tagging

Hmm...not sure how vlan tagging will help if all of your interfaces are on the same vlan.  In your case, aliasing may be the right answer.

Vlan tagging is used when you want an interface (physical or virtual) to span vlans/subnets.
