V-Series FMC Switches

byermann

I'd like to confirm the switches that are supported by NetApp when configuring a V-Series Fabric MetroCluster.

The restrictions that apply to FAS based FMC's regarding Brocade switches does not apply to a V-Series FMC ?

Thanks for your help.

Hi Bruce,

While V-Series currently supports a broader group of switches than FAS, NetApp disks are currently not supported in V-Series Metrocluster configurations.  To use a V-Series to avoid the switch restrictions of FAS means you give up using NetApp disks.

Thanks!
