Network Storage Protocols Discussions
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
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
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...
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.
