Network Storage Protocols Discussions
have 2 filers , each with 4 , 10 gb nics . i don't want to use any lacp or ether channel . just want to have the following setup
e0c - cifs / multiprotocol with e0e as standby
e0d - nfs only with e0f as standby
what i need to do make them as standby interfaces ? so if one fails , other takes over . Along with that if the filer fails the other node takes all the the cifs and nfs traffic .
this is what i have done
ifconfig e0c ip netmask
ifconfig e0d ip netmask
ifconfig e0e ip netmask partner e0c
ifconfig e0f ip netmask partner e0d
is this the right way ? is there a better way to configure them with out using the lacp or ether channel.
You would create a single mode Ifgrp then ifconfig that Ifgrp. Do an Ifgrp create single for the 2 interfaces in the group
ifgrp create single ifgrpSTD01 e0d e0fifconfig ifgrpSTD01 ip-add netmask 255.255.255.128
ifconfig ifgrpSTD01 partner ifgrpSTD02
Is this going to provide the failover betwen e0d and e0f ?
Correct. Ifgrp status will show which interface is active and passive. You can also "Ifgrp favor intname" to specify which you want active.
