Network and Storage Protocols
I want to configure multipathing in between windows server and ESXi server. please suggest the pre-requisite and how to configure it.
Do you want to connect a Windows server and an ESXi server to a NetApp filer? The multipathing method you use will depend on which data protocol(s) you use - NFS, iSCSI or Fibre Channel. Which ones are you interested in?
Currently i am looking for iSCSI but it would be good if u provide in detail for both iSCSI and FC/FCoE.
Adam is right, you should first decide on which protocol to use since there are differences on multipath configurations depending on the protocol you choose.
For VMware, also take a look at this: http://www.netapp.com/us/media/tr-3749.pdf
* there are amenities that should be considered depending on the protocol you use.
Hope this helps.
