LACP not recommended for iSCSI?

eveares

Is it true what I have been told in the past that LACP in a interface group should not be used for SAN protcols like iSCSI between a NetApp filer and a stack of switches what then connect to servers and that instead only MPIO should be used to provide resilience to servers coonnecting to a NetApp SAN using iSCSI?

 

In other words, when is LACP or the use of Interface Groups not reccomnded despite being technicly possible.

 

Either way, can you please provide a NetApp based source to what is recomencded / not reccomnded in relation to the above.

 

Regards: Elliott.
