Nimble iSCSI configuration on different subnet than management IP

I have a New AF40 with FC, works fine, our management network for the array is 10.10.10.240/255.255.255.0, for testint we want to use iSCSI, can we configure our current iSCSI network? we currently use 192.168.20.0 for iSCSI. If i try to configure this like a subnet i allways get an error "Invalid subnet 192.168.20.0/255.255.255.0 specified. I create a windows vm for test purpose and connected with scsi initator to nimble 10.10.10.240 and works fine but i have several servers configured on iSCSI network 192.168.20.0

You need to add a second data subnet using 192.168.20.0. I can't think of a reason it would complain about having the Management subnet doing data and having a (call it "iSCSI") subnet also doing data.

Don't forget you can quickly call Nimble Support for help as well.
