Hi

 

We are configurating one Flexpod solution.

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

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.

Hi,

 

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

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?

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

Hi

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

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

Re: Cisco UCS Direct Attached Storage for NFS

Hi, 

 

Im having the same problem.

 

Can i confirm that you resolved this by deploying a service profile on a blade that made use of the storage appliance vlan via a vNic Template and that fixed the error ?

 

Cheers,

 

Chris

Yes this is the solution. The system need link.

Re: Cisco UCS Direct Attached Storage for NFS

I know that this is a mildly dated thread, however, I've just ran into this issue at a client site where we were making a number of modifications to SnapMirror configurations with a direct-attached to UCS setup and the fix was not to add the new NetApp VLAN to a Service Profile vNIC.  The fix was to navigate to each of the appliance ports (in our case just one per fabric) and verify that the newly-created Appliance VLAN was actually checkmarked to enable it on the Applianct Ports.  It did also have to be in both the Appliance Cloud and the LAN Cloud as a Global VLAN.

 

Thanks!
Kris
