I have an interop question i'm not getting to bottom of via the matrix tool.
It involves a V-series migration (V3240/3270s) curently using EMC VMAX as backend FC LUN providers, in a mixed SAN that includes a general
mix of AIX, ESX and MS hosts , Brocade DCX and 5300 switches, including virtual requirements.
Connectivity on replacement NetApp 8200 is FC biased on boards 1 and 2 and onboard..to allow for connections to multiple san circuits , different host types.
So very limited onboard IP connectivity.
Hence need to retain V-series function ...
So, question is , will V-series work with 8200 backend to continue to provide CIFS / NFS access.?
I could only find implication that NetApp E-series backends suitable via the Matrix Tool...hope that's not the case..
