FAS2552 UTA2 ports in 10GbE mode

MKELLYSCSC

Hi all,

 

I believe/hope that the answer to this question is Yes, but I really want clarification as the server in question is several hundred miles away in a different country.

We are moving the equipment to a new office in the next few weeks and taking the opportunity to do some network upgrades.

 

FAS2552

Data ONTAP 8.3.2P5

We have 2 free UTA2 ports (e0c & e0d) on each of the two nodes.

Will they work in 10GbE mode if I plug the correct SFP+ modules (X6589-R6 or equivalent) in?

I know that there are some issues relating to 1GbE support but I'm not worried about that.

 

Some output from sysconfig -A

In addition to changing to the correct 10GbE SFP's, you also need to ensure that the port pair is in the correct mode: CNA mode.  By default, the ports are in FC mode.

 

Use the command: system node hardware unified-connect modify
http://docs.netapp.com/ontap-9/topic/com.netapp.doc.dot-cm-cmpr-900/system__node__hardware__unified-connect__modify.html

 

Notes:

  1. The mode applies to both ports in the "pair" - for FAS2552, the port pairs are e0c/e0d and e0e/e0f (or for FC, 0c/0d and 0e/ef)
  2. After changing the mode, you must reboot the node for the change to take effect

After reboot, you can verify things are set up correctly:

  1. command: system node hardware unified-connect show
  2. sysconfig or sysconfig -a: you'll see e0c and e0d in the output, now.
