Combining Vifs-Second level Vifs

HUBBARDGRAHAM

Is it possible to combine a 10g Vif with a 1g Vif  to create a Second level Vif?   Is this a supported Netapp configuration?

I have a Netapp Controller  connected to two switches.

A pair of 10g ports are connected to Switch A

and a pair of 1g ports are connected to Switch B

Can these pairs be combined in a second level Vif?

Yes, it is possible. You probably will want to make 10G favored.

Thanks aborzezkov!

I will be testing this configuration soon.  You wouldnt happen to know of any documentation illustrating this config?
