Qlogic HBA and TE port

Howdy,

Has anyone tried trunking multiple VSAN's to a new qlogic HBA?

I will be testing it in the dev lab later in the week but I thought I would ask... :)

Cheers

Andrew

Re: Qlogic HBA and TE port

Hi Andrew,

Multiple VSANs to a single HBA...your basically talking about frames being tagged with VSAN headers, ie a Trunking F port. We dont support TF port (yet).

We do however support NPIV, ie multiple FCIDs and FLOGIs from the same HBA in the *same* VSAN.

Some collegues of mine have tested this with MDS and I believe it works. I plan to get an NPIV capable HBA soon and run it with VMWARE.

Cheers

G'day Dallas,

I sure was... :( npiv doesnt do anything for me at the moment...

I knew there was talk a while ago about doing it and I noticed qlogic mentioning it on the website.

I really didnt want to put multiple hba's into machines (or pay insane $$ for ivr :)

back to the ole drawing board!
