Appliance port on 6248 Fabric Interconnects

Unanswered Question

User Badges:

Is it possible to setup a storage device with a CIFS share on the 6248's through a port defined as an appliance port?  The GUI guide says this:


"Appliance ports are only used to connect fabric interconnects to directly attached NFS storage."


But what would be the difference if it were a CIFS share rather than an NFS mount?


I'm trying to setup a storage unit that does both NFS and CIFS, but the backup software that I want to point to it through the FI's needs to have it as a CIFS share due to being a Windows platform.


Any and all comments welcome.


Thanks,

Chad

  • Cisco Employee,

iSCSI, CIFS and NFS targets are all valid uses for the appliance port. 


All the appliance port does is allow MAC learning on the interface.

Robert
