iSCSI direct attach

Hi,

I bought a MSA2012i storage and two servers. I did not buy switches since i have only two servers and its two NICs would be connected to two controllers diretcly for redundancy. I want to make this as active-active configuration. Will this work?

Regards,

saha.

Hi Saha,

yes you can do that how ever in MSA while configuring IP add to the controllers ports

following is the THUMB RULE

Ethernet port that will be used for
iSCSI connectivity. Each Ethernet port on a data host should be assigned an IP
address on a different subnet.

In addition

MSA have 2 type of host connectivity in Direct attach env.

1 Interconnected
2 Straight-Trough

Both will give you redundancy ....however please check both before configuring , depending on your setup....
