UCS VSAN ID

Hi,

I have a small question on VSAN IDs and hope you guys have an answer for that .

When creating a VSAN in UCS FI, sholuld I use the same VSAN ID created in the upstream MDS switch or can I use a different ID?

Cheers,

Kisanka

Yes the VSAn Id should be the same as the upstream MDS.

Yeah you will actually get an error "OLS link nor received" is you use a different VSAN ID.  Make sure that your vHBA's are configured for this VSAN as well or they will not Flogi into the fabric interconnect and will not get assigned an uplink to communicate out of.
