Cisco UCS Direct Attached Storage for NFS

Hi

 

We are configurating one Flexpod solution.
UCS 6296UP with Fas8020 Ontap 8.3  Direct Attached Storage for NFS

 

This is the information found

http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/products/collateral/servers-unified-computing/ucs-6100-series-fabric-interconnects/whitepaper_c11-702584.html

 

We are create the "appliance ports" but this are in error.

 Error: ENM source pinning failed

 

Thanks

 

Re: Cisco UCS Direct Attached Storage for NFS

It's going to be hard to troubleshoot with out many details on the configuration. To start with, make sure that the VLAN you have configured on the Appliance port exsits in both the LAN Cloud and Appliance sections.

 

 

Re: Cisco UCS Direct Attached Storage for NFS

Hi,

 

This blog post describes nicely solving the issue, which quite likely is due to VLAN discrepancies:

Thanks

I am test with this configuration but the ports are in fail.
is it necesary some special parameters in NetApp (Ontap:8.3)?

I detec what when I configure with "Set Ethernet Swiching Mode" the port are up but in normal mode "End-Host Mode"they are in fail.

Re: Cisco UCS Direct Attached Storage for NFS

There shouldn't be any special configuration you'll need on the NetApp side. 

 

Did you test the VLAN issue mentioned?

Re: Cisco UCS Direct Attached Storage for NFS

Hi

Yes I configure same VLAN in two level and It's not sufficient.

Only changing mode, system reboot but I think this is not good solution.

 

Thanks

Hi

 

Pantallazo

 

This is how it is configured.

UCSM is in 2.1(3e) version and NetApp in 8.3

 

Thanks

 

 

 

 

Re: Cisco UCS Direct Attached Storage for NFS

Hello.

 

Same issue here. Configured the vlans in both (lan cloud and appliances).

Port is in failed mode:

 

Overall Status:
 
Failed
Additional Info:ENM source pinning failed
Admin State:Enabled

Re: Cisco UCS Direct Attached Storage for NFS

Hi

We view the NetApp interfaces are CNA so we are testing with Fcoe  Sotorage port. Is it right this option?

 

How confirure the vlans?

 

Thanks

 

 

 

Re: Cisco UCS Direct Attached Storage for NFS

Hi

 

My error was I not had any server created. When I create a server with vNic in this Vlan the port are turn up in "storage port" mode.

 

Other question, If Netapp port are in ifgroup in Fabric Interconet with port channel?

Thanks
