The ports on Nexus 7000 switch which are connected to 5548up:
interface Ethernet8/19 switchport access vlan 2000 logging event port link-status no shutdown
interface Ethernet8/20 switchport access vlan 2000 logging event port link-status no shutdown
The ports on Nexus 7000 switch which are connected to storage:
interface Ethernet8/5 switchport access vlan 2000 no logging event port link-status no shutdown
interface Ethernet8/6 switchport access vlan 2000 no logging event port link-status no shutdown
Now the connection is ok, I can add two more vnic for UCS Server. And configure vmkernel networking in esxi5.1

After add vmk1 to software iscsi port binding, it can see volumes from storage and works well.
Now the problem is I can just add vmk1 to software iscsi port binding, if I want multipath and add vmk2 to port binding. Then the rescan hba in esxi5.1 is very very slow, format disk in VM is also very slow.
I think the connections seem ok, because I can see volumes from esxi5.1, but I am not sure whether it is valid and what casued the rescan so slow with multipath configured.
I know the basics for Cisco routers and switches but what I want to know is, if I set up VTP on a switch, is there a way to send it through routers to other switches? This will probably end up more hassle than gain, but it's interesting and cool to p...
