Hello, I'm new to storage, and to networking. so maybe there is an easy solution for this.
I have an active/active FAS2020 configuration. I want to use it for VMWare ESX Servers with iSCSI LUNS, and also for CIFS.
My switches (srw2048) supports vlans, so i would like to vlan off my iscsi traffic.
But the FAS2020 only has two network ports. i have them configured together in a virtual interface. if i create a vlan for iscsi on the two ports, then the cifs traffic will be cut off.
would i have to remove the virtual interface and configure each port for a different vlan, then if so, how do i tell the fas to use one port for cifs, and one port for iscsi.
am i not understanding something?
any suggestions will be very helpful.
