Aggregating multiple fiber ports on MDS directors

Unanswered Question
Aug 3rd, 2009

Hi All,

Going forward our new servers will have the capability of aggregating multiple fiber ports into fewer connections on the SAN switch. I am told that there is a particular setting that needs to be enable on the switch for this functionality to work, kindly let me know more details on this?

What we intend is to reduce the port usage on Cisco MDS9509 like in map in many hba's to few physical ports instead of one to one?



I have this problem too.

I too searched a lot...may be it got something to do with NPIV gateway or Core switch,,,do such devices exist in Ciso? ( I dont know much about this devices)

If it for devices then NPIV will be the option to choose. Problem is you can't see any options via the CLI until it's enabled. Try speaking to your server hardware supplier as it's an Industry standard, they should be able to help as well.

NPV seams to be for multiply switches, in a Core and Edge layout.
