Sorry, somehow my questions missed out from this post. Here are my questions from initial post.
We are in a process of implementing FAS 2750 HA pair (only two nodes) Filer for block usage and have query about using portset
In our case we have Windows hosts with 2 HBAs and zoning will be done as mentioned below
Fabric A Fabric B • Zone 1: HBA 0, Node01_LIF_1 ,Node02_LIF_3 • Zone 1: HBA 1, Node01_LIF_2, Node02_LIF_4
Port set - We will create two portsets
Portset 1: Node 1 LIF1 and Node 2 LIF3 Portset 2: Node 1 LIF2 and Node 2 LIF4
IG1 - have HBA1 WWPN
IG2- have HBA2 WWPN
Portset1 with IG1 & Portset 2 with IG2
Please help me to answer below questions about using portsets while provisioning block storage.
- In my case do we really need portset to restrict luns ? As you see we already have zones setup which will restrict luns on HA pairs.
- What difference it will make with or without portsets with above config ?
- What are the best practices recommended by NetApp about using portsets on HA pairs?
- How to restrict lun access if I have multiple hosts on Microsoft Clusters. For example If I have to share few luns only visible to host1 and other luns can be shared with host1 and host2 which are in clusters?
