MSA recommended network configuration

Hello,  I’m looking for documentation on best practices or guidelines on how to setup MSA SAN network. I have a MSA 2012i with dual controller and 2012 enclosure. When talking to HP tech support they indicated our network setup was not optimal: should been using different subnets per controller, management network should be separate, jumbo frames enabled, etc. I already had two dedicated switches for iSCSI SAN network but had to upgrade.


I searched the support website and haven’t been able to find any documentation on this. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Re: MSA recommended network configuration

Hi, HP's SAN Design Reference Guide has details about best practices when setting up an iSCSI network.


But yes, a dedicated subnet/VLAN/switch is a good idea (less interference of the SCSI traffic).
