FAS and V-Series Storage Systems Discussions
for some learning on small san boxes I wanted to buy an FAS2020 - I found one with some warranty,preformatted discs, 2x 4GB FC port and 2x ethernet
It comes with these licenses:
First question - does these licenses allow me to use the integrated ethernet port too for iSCSI, CIFS and NFS? I learned that FCP is the licese for the FC port.
second question: what type of port has this device? IS this FC or SFP+? Pls have a look at the attached image.
Until now I haven't touched such a device, my biggest NAS solution is a Synology DS414 at home... so forgive me with Netapp I am a newbie....
See The Solution
Here is link to documentation about this model
you can find all information there
hwu.netapp.com is a good place to look up what's what physically on the systems.
#1 - Yes.
#2 - 0a 0b are the FC ports (check hwu!) and show to be compatiable with sfp - X6539-R6

the documentation says it is "fibre channel" but not the connector type...
and on hwu.nwtapp.com i cant go because I actually havent the rights yet... I will buy and register only when I know that I can use it
buy support? There's no getting NetApp support on a 20xx box anymore.
I've mentioned the part # it's a SFP -> LC connector.
Since we're nice folks here, the X6359-R6 SFP part will have one of the following numbers on the label.
