Does NetApp support VDI Auto Deploy with DHCP on NFS export for your Advice?


Dear Filer Gurus,


Does filer support NFS export with DHCP scope for vmkernel ports in VDI?


The thinking is to use a working DHCP range for NFS export IP range, so VDI Auto deploy could be fully automates to assign a reservation for the management IP address & any other IP addresses (vMotion or NFS) will be obtained from DHCP.


Thanks in advance + Happy Monday





The question is not clear. Are you trying to configure the storage controller's data interfaces (such as e0a) with a DHCP based IP address?

No it's not for e0a config. it;'s for data volume NFS export setup. whether that setup will support DHCP?
