AFF 200 Network LACP Access mode change to Trunk mode

Hello;


We hav an AFF 200 with all svm's are connetcted via VLAN 50 and Lif a0a an 4 port LACP Etherchannel on our Cisco Switch(switchport access vlan 50).

To improve the security, we want to seperate the NFS traffic to the ESXI Hosts with a new Vlan id 10

But that means to change the Port config of the Switch to trunk(Switchport mode trunk).


I would follow this steps:

1. Create an svm_lif for NFS with the new IP in the Vlan 10

2. Edit the NFS Export Policy for the ESXI Host IP's

3. Create 2 new LACP Etherchannel on the Cisco Switch with Switchport mode trunk

4. Takeover the Node 1

5. Connect the 4 Connections to the new LACP Trunk Etherchannel

6. Takeover the Node 2

7. Connect the 4 Connections to the new LACP Trunk Etherchannel

8. Giveback


Can you please correct me when i'm wrong?

For NFS Expot, do i need a "switchport mode trunk switchport nativ vlan" setting?

Many Thanks, Thomas

You shouldn't need to do the takeover/givebacks.    That was more a 7mode thing.   

 

You should just  be able to move the lifs around, add new lifs and reconfigure/add vlans.   Just be sure to evacuate any port/ifgrp you're working on.   

 

After your done,  be sure to verify failover groups on your lifs.

Thanks a lot, i will try it this week.

But on the Switch i need to connect to a new LACP Etherchannel, so i need to reconnect the cables, for that i have a Networkouttake, which i could avoid with th takeover/giveback, is that wright?

many Thanks, Thomas

Re: AFF 200 Network LACP Access mode change to Trunk mode

can you explain what you mean by "networkouttake"?  

 

But there's nothing you need to do when reconfiging networking ports that involves takeovers/givebacks.  

Just evacuate all lifs on the VLANs and ports your working on to the partner or other nodes in the cluster.

I need to change the switchport setting from defined vlan to trunk, sorry for my bad exlanation...

Thanks, Thomas

Re: AFF 200 Network LACP Access mode change to Trunk mode

no problem,  still not a need to do anything with the controllers related to takeovers/givebacks.  Just evac the port/vlans you're working with.
