We have a few weeks ago a FAS8040 (8.3 P2). In this we now have a SVM defined for our VMware environment. Now we have given our VMWare admins the permissions on the SVM-level, so that these by using the VMware Plugin (VSC 6) can get access to the SVM.
The user has been given a role with the appropriate privileges, as we have also awarded in 7-Mode. When our VMWare admin now wants to access with VMware Plugin on the user in the SVM, he gets the message: 'IP adresse xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx connects directly to a cluster SVM. Full functionality is available only when the IP address connects to a cluster management LIF.
Do you want to continue with the SVM connection ?'
The IP address that he uses, is the address of the SVM. Or must he specify a different IP address? If yes, which? Possibly of the LIF, which is assigned to the SVM? However, the LIFs have only WWPN's.
