What's the best way to setup the management network for vfilers?

We currently have a management network for all our equipment and the netapp uses it over the e0m port.  Is it possible to have the vfilers use that interface or should we have a separate management network for the vfilers and have it go over a different port on netapp?  i was wondering what others are doing to allow other groups to manage their vfilers.  I want to keep the managment network seperate from the storage network.

Thanks,

Cale

Hi,

Since you have not gotten an answer, you may want to ask this question in the NetApp Support Community.  The current customers, partners and internal Subject Matter Experts are addressing technical product questions there.

I'm not the resident expert but in my lab I always separate my mgmt ports and data ports regardless of vfiler or physical.  There is a multistore guide that may have more info on how to setup for your environment.  http://now.netapp.com/NOW/knowledge/docs/ontap/rel736/pdfs/ontap/vfiler.pdf
