FAS 2520 switchless

Hi All, i need to install a new FAS2520 C-dot 8.3.2, in our Customer.

 

The client's network infrastructure is at 1gbits, so i was thinking of configuring the cluster interfaces of each node, in the switchless mode .

 

The Fas2520 support this type of configuration ?

 

The Cluster interfaces are e0d and e0f , for each node ?

 

We need to use a crossover cable or straight-trough cable ?

 

The command for switchless mode are this :

 

set -privileges advanced

 

network options switch switchless-cluster modify -enable true

 

set -privileges admin 

 

Are the commands correct?

 

Thank you all 

 

Antonio

Yes It Supports Switchless Configuration

The Cluster interfaces are e0d and e0f , for each node ?

 

Yes 


The command for switchless mode are:

 

1. Enter the following command to enable cluster HA:

 

cluster ha modify -configured true

 

If storage failover is not already enabled, you will be prompted to confirm enabling of both storage failover and auto-giveback.

 

If you have a two-node switchless cluster, enter the following commands to verify that the switchless-cluster option is set:

 

Enter the following command to change to the advanced-privilege level:

 

set -privilege advanced

 

Confirm when prompted to continue into advanced mode. The advanced mode prompt appears (*>).

 

Enter the following command:

 

network options switchless-cluster show

 

If the output shows that the value is false, you must issue the following command:

 

network options switchless-cluster modify true

 

Enter the following command to return to the admin privilege level:

 

set -privilege admin
