We got two MDS 9124e switches for our new HP c7000 Blade system. We currently have one MDS 9124 switch for our SAN environment now. We are thinking of connecting both 9124e switches via 2-port port channel to the main 9124 switch. I have a host of questions. First, all vsans are manually configured on all switches (meaning there is no VTP like function for VSANS)? I have read other threads talking about Domain ID's, and related configuration changes; do I have to be concerned with this? Through HP documentation I have read that these switches can be configuring for redundancy, how? And is this an active/active or active/passive configuration?
So I believe my tasks are configure the vsans, create the port channel, configure the port ch. interface for ISL and configure trunking (?), cable the switches and the assign the FC interface to their VSAN. Is there anything else I'm missing or should be concerned with?
As you can see, I'm pretty new with SAN configuration.
Thanks for all your time and help.
