Supported SFP for FAS8700

Ebo_Hagan

Hi All, we recently acquire FAS8700 HA system. The network we have is 1GB and 10GB. The onboard ethernet ports are 25GbE/100GbE (ROCE). Can I install either a 1GB or 10GB SFPs into the onboard ethernet ports and configure for snapmirror??

 

Thank you in advance.

Yes, NetApp Hardware Universe is your friend for these types of questions... check the "Onboard Ports & Cables" link in the results.

 

But be aware that the onboard ports on FAS8700 are reserved for internal use in most cases.

e0a/e0b (25GbE) are for HA cabling.

e0c/e0d (40/100GbE) are for cluster network cabling.

If you have the Ethernet bundle variant, the e0e -> e0h 10/25GbE Mezzanine ports can provide your connectivity for data or SnapMirror.  If you have the FC bundle variant, you'll need to acquire suitable NICs for one of your PCIe slots.
